    Why doesn’t It’s Always Sunny ever get recognized? It’s the funniest thing on TV and last season was great.

    • Seth McDonald

      Yeah last season of Sunny in Philly was one of the best in years i think. They went outside the box and did some un sunny like things, but it worked.

    as much I’m not OUTRAGED over the thing I love didn’t win…. That list looks really odd, some things still in sprint of 2016, you might as well add Downton Abby last season in there. I am a HUGE Fan of Veep, but they are a bunch of assholes compared to Modern Family or Blackish which have huge ratings which are feel good family comedies handling real issues…… it really does feel obvious the studio pandering to emmy voters this year over last years.
    I still feel Master of None should get more consideration since it’s a show that’s not trying to find a solution but showing a slice of life of everyone
