Gee, isn't it nice to not have to wake up at 5:30 A.M. for the 2016 Emmy nominations? Either way, the big announcement is finally here, as presented by black-ish star Anthony Anderson and Gilmore Girls returnee Lauren Graham, so let’s find out what we're all angry about/celebrating this year at the Emmys!

That time of year is upon us again, as this coming Thursday, July 14 sees the announcement of the 2016 Emmy Awards nominations, in a field that seems tougher by each year. Favorites like Game of Thrones hit new levels of spectacle this year, while newcomers like UnREAL and Mr. Robot could split the nominations wide open.
If the Golden Globes can reward Lady Gaga, surely ScreenCrush can recognize TV’s best too, right? Right? By gum, we’re going to try.
Ahead of what will likely prove one of its biggest recorded weekends, HBO already issued a 2017 renewal to Game of Thrones, and now its comedy companions follow suit. Not only will our beloved Veep stay in office for a sixth season, so too will Mike Judge’s Silicon Valley bumble through the tech revolution for a fourth year.
Now that we’ve stumbled our way through the past weekend’s unremarkable Russell Crowe hour, SNL has a bright weekend ahead in returning former cast member Julia Louis-Dreyfus to the stage. The first official promos have arrived, as Julia remembers her classic SNL role … singular … as well as her hit HBO series, Beep.
April 24 still feels a ways away, and where Game of Thrones Season 6 and Silicon Valley Season 3 have already clued us into new trailers, Selina Meyer at last follows suit for Veep Season 5. The HBO political comedy brings twice the vice and barely any of the President in a first look at the 2016 run.
Considering Netflix has pushed it to the point of debuting near of a new season or series every week, the premium providers of old seem almost deprived of new content. HBO won’t take that lying down, planning to up its original series haul by at least 50% of its current stable, but will it affect subscription fees?
Not even half an hour into the night, and already the 2016 Golden Globes has its winner for Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical, and it may surprise. Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle pulled off a surprising upset, nabbing the award over some stiff competition.
It seems like only a few short weeks ago, Game of Thrones sent fans into a panic with speculation that Season 6 might end up scheduled for May 2016, rather than its usual April slot, but rest easy. Not only has the landmark year for HBO’s high fantasy been set for an official April bow, but so too have fellow power-players Veep Season 5 and Silicon Valley Season 3.
HBO has been cranking up the Game of Thrones marketing early for Season 6, first a poster, then a trailer teasing Jon Snow’s return, and before 2015 is even out, we’ve been blessed with the first footage. See Dany’s new digs, and Cersei’s new ‘do in the first official Game of Thrones Season 6 footage!
