    Hmm. Orange isn’t really a comedy, IMO, but I’m going to stop banging that drum. And no one on Scandal deserves any kind of acting award, so I’m just going to imagine Melissa McBride won and call it a day.

    Wonder how these will align with the Emmys…

    Not crazy about Fallon, but I know the YouTube generation adores him and he’s a huge improvement over Leno.

    Orange really does belong in drama because, although it has humor, the drama is where its strengths lie. It’s marketed as a comedy though.

    Also like multiple wins for Cosmos and Allison Janney.

    I totally disagree with you on the Bellamy Young win. While Scandal is sudsy, yes, Young is the best actress on it. Her First Lady is so ambitious and manipulative all the while carrying her own secrets and agenda. My heart goes out to her character.
