The nominations for the 2016 Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning, celebrating the best in television and streaming (because these days streaming is television and television is streaming). There were snubs (No Jane the Virgin? Crazy Ex-Girlfriend? Hath you no CW, Emmy?) and surprises (They finally watched The Americans!), but to find out the winners, we'll have to wait until Jimmy Kimmel hosts the awards on September 18th.

Here are the people who objectively, absolutely deserve to claim the statuettes. Every other opinion is cute, but completely wrong.


Outstanding Drama Series

The Americans
Better Call Saul
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
Mr. Robot

Who should win: Game of Thrones. All possible precautions should be taken so the legion of fans don't riot. The fans can't contain their Throners and are always ready to fight.

Stark ravin' mad.

Outstanding Comedy Series

Modern Family
Silicon Valley
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Master of None

Who should win: Veep, for managing to still be great even though this election made it cease to be a satire.

The Trump campaign, basically.
