The nominations have been made and on July 16, 2015, the nominees will be announced. It has been an annual event in American television where the best of the best of primetime television were recognized by the Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences.
Of course, the possible nominees were rallied by shows that were part & showed in an eligible year from June 1, 2014 to May 31, 2015.
As a fun little thing on my blog, I would rack up some of my dream nominees on different major categories from Drama and Comedy. I must say, I had the greatest opportunity to catch a lot of series of both comedy and drama. So yeah.
Not in particular order, here are my dream 5 nominees for LEAD ACTRESS in a COMEDY SERIES
1. Amy Schumer, Inside Amy Schumer
– Amy was an underrated actress, at least for me. And her body of work on this series validate the fact that she is not just funny but has the comedic timing, charming appeal and stellar chops to pull such character with enough ease and confidence.
2. Lisa Kudrow, The Comeback
– Lisa Kudrow once again blew me away when the long overdue second season of The Comeback made its return on television. She was a fantastic actress with nuanced delivery and funny antics. From her iconic role Phoebe (Friends), Lisa was able to identify Valerie Cherish in this series as yet another stand-out character full of colors and layered profile.
3. Constance Wu, Fresh Off The Boat
– At first, people would say that the freshman series Fresh off the boat might suffer the same fate of Selfie or Marry Me or even A to Z, but to the surprise of them people, it survived a successful season thanks to its fresh, current and funny narrative and at the same a cast that was stellar, in particular Constance Wu! She was just there, her wit and comedic delivery are on point. She was just fantastic!
4. Ilana Glazer & Abbi Jacobson, Broad City
– Can they, if ever get nominated, go and do a tie for this category? They are without a doubt funny, perfect and exudes a chemistry that is charming, hilarious and nuanced.
5. Ellie Kemper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
– In a series that felt like a 70s sitcom, Ellie Kemper came out shining with flying colors. Her performance is just funny. She was hilarious. She was a layered character delivered with a layered performance by Ellie!
