TV News: FX Gets 26 Primetime Emmy® Nominations

Share

I’m a bit disappointed that Justified didn’t get nominated at all – especially for acting by both Timothy Olyphant and the enigmatic Walton Goggins. I am beyond thrilled that the wonderful Margo Martindale received a nod for her guest role on The Americans. Martindale won an Emmy® for her guest role on Justified. And no surprise that the timeless Jessica Lange received her nom for American Horror Story: Asylum. And what really irritates me  – there is nothing for Sons of Anarchy. That just sucks.

 

Congrats to all the nominees!
