|That's really all that needs to be said about that category.|
Outstanding Limited Series
The Honorable Woman
Poldark was not eligible. That said, Freak Show? Really? REALLY? I'm glad it's up for title design, but that season was a MESS. What about Babylon? I've yet to see it, but a Danny Boyle show MUST be better. And I heard good things about the Wrong Mans... There aren't a lot of limited series, but you don't HAVE to nominate something when it goes wildly off the rails (see: The Good Wife).
|Helen McCrory did it better.|
“Agatha Christie’s Poirot” Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case, Acorn
Grace of Monaco, Lifetime
Hello Ladies: The Movie, HBO

Aw, yay, Poirot! I also appreciate that the BoJack Horseman Christmas episode was eligible. I'm not sure why Death Comes to Pemberly wasn't eligible - I really enjoyed that.

Pajiba has a great reaction post to the nominations. To which I would add:
Biggest waste of a potential story line: Finn - Good Wife
Best way to hide a pregnancy: Shaw - Person of Interest
Best tracking shot: It's Always Sunny - Charlie Work
Runner Up: Daredevil - The Hallway Fight
Best sketch: Inside Amy Schumer - 12 Angry Men (runner up: Key & Peele - Aerobics Meltdown)
Best balloon: Daredevil
Best score: The Knick
Best intro music: True Blood - Eric meeting Ginger for the first time, #1 Crush - Garbage
Best Wedding: Outlander. Duh.
Most Underwhelming: Galavant. Doesn't it seem like a musical with a Mel Brooks sensibility should have been more memorable?
Most welcome return: SNL Celebrity Jeopardy - 40th Anniversary show. Not the best bit, but... Sean Connery! Burt Reynolds!
Best gag that I couldn't believe had never been done before: Doctor Who - the TARDIS getting smaller on the outside.
Best thing that should fit in a category somewhere - wait, what was nominated for best song: Too Many Cooks [Update: it's not up, but Darren Criss is for Glee. Aww.]
Not Eligible in 2015, but amazing: Hannibal's European Vacation.
|THANK YOU BRYAN|
Best Fight Music: Agent Carter - Peggy Lee
Biggest bombshell: The Americans - "I need to know the truth. I don’t care what it is. But if you love me, if you really love me, then please tell me. What are you, in the witness protection program? Did you kill someone? Are you guys drug dealers like your friend Gregory? Are we adopted? Are we aliens? What?”
Best character ever: The Honorable Miss Phryne Fisher
