Indiewire executive editor Michael Schneider joins Kim Masters to discuss top entertainment news stories of the week.
- Emmy nominations are out, and for once, critics aren’t upset. There was less “rubbing-stamping” of perennially nominated shows, and HBO, FX and Netflix emerged as big winners.
- Game of Thrones and The People v. O.J. Simpson received the most nominations, while The Americans and Mr. Robot broke through and are two of the most exciting additions to the race.
- There were some snubs, though. Orange is the New Black was shut out of Best Drama and the acting categories. And for the first time in 16 years, there’s no Comedy Central show nominated in the Variety Talk Show category. Somewhat awkwardly for CBS, James Corden’s show was nominated, but Stephen Colbert’s was not.
