Emmy Notes
New shows lead Emmy nominations
HBO's 'True Detective,' FX's 'Fargo' and Netflix' 'Orange' receive nods
By Toni Fitzgerald, Media Life Magazine - Jul. 10, 2014

This year’s Emmy nominations are a mix of old and new.

A number of first-year shows, including HBO’s “True Detective,” FX’s “Fargo” and Netflix’ “Orange is the New Black,” racked up nods this morning.

But there were also a number of familiar shows and actors in the running, including AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men,” ABC’s “Modern Family,” and PBS’s “Downton Abbey.”

For the 14th straight year, HBO led all networks with 99 nominations.

Netflix scored more than double last year’s nods, amassing 31, more than many TV channels, including Fox.

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” had the most nominations, 19. “Fargo,” which was entered as a miniseries much like FX’s “American Horror Story,” garnered the second most at 18.

“Black” earned 12 nods, the most for any comedy, while HBO’s original movie “The Normal Heart” had 16 nominations, the most for any film.

“Saturday Night Live” came close to tying its 2011 record for a variety program by scoring 14 nods, two fewer than in 2011.

Other new shows getting nods included Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which picked up a supporting actor nod for Andre Braugher, and CBS’s “Mom,” which earned a supporting actress nomination for Allison Janney.

TV Notes
Rosie O’Donnell Returning as ‘View’ Co-Host
By The Hollywood Reporter's 'Live Feed' Blog Staff - Jul. 10, 2014

After days of rumors, The View made it official shortly after noon Thursday, tweeting that Rosie O’Donnell would return as co-host for season 18 of the ABC daytime show.

The View's Twitter account posted the below announcement.

It's official! ABC confirms Rosie O'Donnell returns as co-host of #TheView w/ moderator Whoopi Goldberg for Season 18 pic.twitter.com/oRCAcxAZE5
— The View (@theviewtv) July 10, 2014


Just an hour earlier, Whoopi Goldberg told viewers she and the rest of the show's cast and crew didn't know who was coming in. O'Donnell, who was a panelist on The View for the 2007-2008 season, left after that one year.

O'Donnell had a notably stormy tenure on the show, often fighting with conservative panelist Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who suggested on Fox News on Wednesday that O'Donnell had been plotting her return to the show for "a very, very long time."

Hasselbeck also claimed that Barbara Walters' farewell episode on May 15 was effectively O'Donnell's "hello show," adding that O'Donnell produced the broadcast.

O'Donnell is the first new addition to the show's panelists for season 18, following news that current panelists Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy would be leaving at the end of this season. Since Barbara Walters' retirement as View co-host in May, Whoopi Goldberg remains the only current co-host returning for next season.

O'Donnell and The View failed to confirm rumors and reports earlier in the week that O'Donnell would be returning to the show, but O'Donnell weighed in on a few View issues on Twitter Wednesday night.

The stations would have to constantly field calls from irate viewers attempting to get their brand new device to receive the local stations. The poor owner could end up calling a dozen, or more, stations in a market. The poor stations would have to spend $$$ on equipment, and staff, to manage the constantly changing database.

What about people who have TVs in mobile homes, etc.?

Yep, not gonna happen.

Why does the TV Academy hate Tatiana Maslany so much? I'm not an "Orphan Black" fan but the woman does an amazing one-person showcase of multiple-lead acting talent in every episode I've seen. Last season's snub of her was an aberration, this time it's an unqualified spit in the face of what the award is supposed to represent.

Sorry, off the soapbox I come. But I'm not even a fan of the show and I'm pissed, I can imagine how the fans and producers of the show must feel.

I'm still trying to figure out how Orange is the new Black can be considered a comedy, even by the people who produce the show.

It isn't even close to a comedy. How can they get away with entering it in that category?

This year's list is a mess. Good stuff/actors/actresses get passed over, yet again.

Agreed about Orange is the new Black, also, I haven't watched it in a while, but when I watched, I would be hard pressed to consider Nurse Jackie a comedy.

Or why 'Fargo' is a "miniseries", but 'True Detective' is a series.

Yep, it's even more of a mess than usual.

Yeah, they didn't even considered Tatiana? maybe her show aired to late was was out of this year's nomination? Might as well only nominate Julianna because she always wins.

Fargo should get some awards, if not there's no justice in this world.

I'm also rooting for Captn. Janeway to take one home.
