With the exception of a few nominations for work in series that nobody watched and everyone has forgotten – in other words, wasted opportunities – I can’t really complain about the 2016 Emmy Award nominees announced today by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. It’s not as though every deserving show and performance can be recognized. Indeed, the era of Peak TV has brought with it inevitable oversights and failures at every turn, from ratings to renewals to rewards, because of the sheer volume of “top-quality” work on broadcast, cable and streaming services. Given the bulk of it all, it’s amazing that anything comes out on top.
