Tube Toppers

Omnimystery News has kindly segregated out the TV crime series from amongst the lengthy full list of nominees for this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards. The contenders were announced earlier today.

Breaking Bad has the most nominations,” the blog reports, “followed not far behind by Game of Thrones, Homeland and Sherlock.” (Hmm. Does the medieval fantasy series Game of Thrones really qualify as crime fiction?) It adds that there are “no nominations for The Killing in any category. Future showrunners take note: Do not mislead and disappoint your fans! It will come back to haunt you in myriad ways.”

Look for the winners to be announced during a special televised ceremony on September 23.

Re Game of Thrones: It's true this series is more fantasy than anything else, but if a series has significant elements of mystery and suspense, we often include it as part of the genre we follow on television, especially if it's one we enjoy watching. However we're the first to admit that our definition can be flexible and sometimes inconsistently applied, though we try to be more inclusive than exclusive.
