EGOT WATCH:  Among Vulture's revelations from the Emmy submissions (they're listed in the many links here, with Performers being the big one) is that The Artist Formerly Known As The Artist Formerly Known As Prince (G-O) would like to be nominated for Best Guest Actor-Comedy for his work on New Girl.

Also, for taxonomists, parse these categories:

  • Structured reality program: “programs that contain consistent story elements that mostly adhere to a recurring structured template”
  • Unstructured reality program: “programs that contain story elements driven by the actions of characters and lacking a consistent structured template”
  • Reality competition program: “any program with a competition element that gives a prize or title, including game shows”


  1. Is there any way Newhart doesn't win for Comedy Guest Actor? (Not that I mind, because he's pretty great in the part and he's BOB NEWHART.)

    Also, person who gets screwed by the rules? Cristin Miliotti, who was functionally a guest on HIMYM, and probably would've had a decent shot with the Mother-centric episode as Guest Actress, is submitted as Supporting Actress.

    Ugh, that is bad; supporting comedy for women is a ridiculous category, even if you take out the legacy nominations for people on Modern Family. (And that's not even counting the "not in a million years but deserve a nomination," like Katie Aselton, Busy Phillips and especially Kaitlin Olson.)
