Viewer fatigue isn’t the only downside to the current glut of handsomely produced, ambitious and, if I’m being honest, often somewhat overrated quality scripted programming that sends television critics into alternating states of euphoria and despair. There is also the matter of the ever-increasing egregious oversights when it comes to the many annual awards that honor the medium’s finest content. This is especially true of the Emmy Awards, the nominations for which often tend to lavish certain deserving shows with an embarrassment of riches while inexplicably ignoring others. That’s true this year, as always, and yet it is once again tough to complain about the actual nominees since there isn’t a poor choice among them.
