2015 Emmy nominations revealed: Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul, and more

07.16.2015

It's that time of year again; the summer fruits are ripening, the beaches are full of happy vacationers, and a select group of television aficionados are huddled inside debating the hits and misses of this years Emmy Award nominations. The 2015 nominations were announced earlier today and, with one or two exceptions, the list consists of the usual suspects. On a personal level, I'm pleased to see Tatiana Maslany finally land a nomination as well as Better Call Saul getting some love, but there doesn't seem to be any big surprises this year.
