The next big award show for television is the emmys. I know the deadline date for submissions was before or just after June

Are there any particular shows or actors you reckon could or you would love to see recognised at this year's emmys?

I would love the following to be nominated. These actors performances have personally really stuck out for me over the last several months.

Vera Famiga - Bates Motel
Sienna Miller - The Girl
Michelle Dockery and Maggie Smith -
John Noble - Fringe -
Emily Vancamp - Revenge
Lena Dunham - Girls
Laura Dern - Enlightened
Kat Dennings and Jennifer Coolidge - 2 Broke Girls
Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Jessica Lange - American Horror Story

I'm hoping for a least nominations for Rebecca Hall, Benedict Cumberbatch and Parade's End. It would also be nice to see Happy Endings recognized to hopefully boost it's chances of being picked up elsewhere. Also Sutton Foster in Bunheads, she got a Critics Choice nomination, which would give ABC Family the kick up the arse it needs to renew it.

Amy Poehler should finally win Best Comedy Actress, and a nomination for Adam Scott and the actual show would be nice too.

I'd like to see The Americans, Hannibal and Homeland clean up. Comedywise I'd like Lena Dunham or Zooey Deschannel, but I can't see either winning.

I wouldn't expect Homeland to clean up as much as it did for S1. This could be The Americans year.

I think it's time Sons of Anarchy got some well earned credit- although I'm sure due to Kurt Sutter's past behaviour will prevent that.
I also agree that Amy Poehler and Parks and Rec (in general) need some recognition.

Add another vote for Amy Poehler and 'Parks & Rec'. It's an absolute joke that Nick Offerman has never been acknowledged as Ron Swanson is easily one of the greatest comedy creations ever!

Yes, that was stuff I liked not necessarily stuff I wanted to win. I like The Americans but it didn't have the shock buzz (it wasn't a major surprise like Homeland was, and unlike Homeland it fizzled off towards the end of the season), so it might not win a lot. With Breaking Bad ending soon, we might see a stronger performance from that camp than last year.

Comedy-wise Lena Dunham might win, but that's purely because that's not a strong category. Julie Louis-Dreyfus from Veep might get it again, but her performance is perhaps more down to the writing than her. Tina Fey might sneak in with some added recognition for the now deceased 30 Rock, but I doubt it. Everyone else isn't really that notable (though I do love Zooey Deschannel)...

Vera Farmiga in Bate's Motel & Diana Rigg in Game of Thrones are the two standout performances for me so far this year.

I thought Emily was great this year imo. Especially in the last few season 2 episodes.
