Better Call Saul In The Media

Thanks for that! 

They also got nominated for some lower profile awards:

Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series

Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series (One Hour)

Outstanding Music Supervision

It's so good to see BCS getting some recognition from the Emmy's, even though I agree with all the comments about McKean being absolutely robbed, and even Mando deserving the nod over Banks this season.  

Thanks for posting the other categories! I don't understand why so many news outlets including the New York Times and Variety) post articles with titles that specifically say "full list of nominees" and then they're missing multiple categories! One website was missing all of the guest actor nominations, so it wasn't just the technical ones they were missing. I finally figured out I should just go use the list on the Emmy website!

Hell, I would have nominated Michael Mando for Best Supporting Actor before Banks.  He had maybe the most tense scene on television this year.

What about Rhea Seehorn?  I have no idea about the competition in her category, but I thought she was consistently very good.  I suppose if Michael McKean was overlooked, she didn't have much of a chance.  More's the pity.

Blech to awards programs in general but especially those of the Hollywood variety.

There is an article in Rolling Stone that talks about all the shows and actors that were snubbed.  The author lists Michael McKean and Rhea Seehorn as two noticeably missing options.  

Jonathan Banks is great 'n all but I agree with all that Michael McKean should have been on the list.  Next up for me would be Rhea Seehorn.  Michael Mando's single scene with the pills was fantastic but I get that he might not have been nominated simply because his character didn't have much screen time.

Mando would have been a really good choice too.  He delivered in one of the most tense scenes of the television season this year.

I am catching up on this thread months later and I know exactly which scene you are referring to! That was tense!

They were robbed at the Emmy's!  At least Bob Odenkirk was. I watch "This is Us" and Sterling K Brown is good but the roles don't compare. I really love John Lithgow. and I admit I don't follow his show,  but I can't imagine any supporting role showing the range of Michael McKean's in BCS. I still can't believe he wasn't even nominated.

I wouldn't be totally shocked if this causes Gilligan and Gould to make Chuck miraculously survive, so McKean can come back and go for an Emmy in season 4.

Or featured heavily in flashbacks.  While I didn't like Chuck, I'll certainly miss him if he's gone.

Banks is always good but the writing didn't give him much to do except have his character silently do obvious, boring stuff and make him 1,000 times more clever than everyone else around him.

Nothing against Banks at all, but this is why I don't like Mike nearly as much here as on BB.

Of course I love Bob Odenkirk in BCS. He's great. But Sterling K Brown is what makes This Is Us a good show. He's amazing. I love him.

As for Supporting Actor, certainly McKean should have been nominated. It's a crime that he wasn't. I still can't believe it. As for who WAS nominated, I wanted Ron Cephas Jones, from This Is Us, to win. As with Sterling K Brown, any scene he was in was great. Lithow was good, too, in The Crown, though I thought Jones and Banks were better. (I don't watch the other nominees' shows.)

Yay.

Michael McKean should have gotten a nom, too. :(

Why oh why do these award committees seem to have no love for Michael McKean?  After his tour-de-force portrayal of Chuck, I don't know what else he could do for professional recognition.  I'm happy for Odenkirk, but sad about McKean.

I don't remember where I saw the mention, but season 4 isn't coming until this fall.
