The cast/crew of The USS Callister in “Black Mirror” (ep #4.1)Sooo, not that it really matters, but this year’s Emmy nominees have been announced, and there were a couple surprises/disappointments to swallow… such as their weird decision to classify the (awesome) “USS Callister” episode of Black Mirror as a “Television Movie”, and to only nominate lead-actor Jesse Plemons for an award, ignoring both Cristin Milioti and Jimmi Simpson (who probably isn’t feeling too down-hearted, with his “Guest Actor” nom for Westworld to ease the sting). They’ve also overlooked Alison Brie and Marc Maron’s stellar work in GLOW, so… I’m just gonna go ahead and call “shenanigans” on the whole thing!*
* Disclaimer: I’m sure that Betty Gilpin deserves a trophy for her performance in the show, but I just hate her character so damn much that I can’t be objective about it. Even if she wins, I’ll be fantasising about ‘Zoya’ zip-lining in to steal the “crown” from her… for honour of Potatograd!
