Here are the 2015 Emmy Nominations. The first thing that I felt when I saw the list was pure joy at Kyle Chandler’s nomination. He is amazing in everything he does, and I am always happy to see him recognized. The other exciting bit of news is the 5 nominations for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I was late to the party on the Netflix series, but once I started watching it I could’t stop. Other newcomer Better Call Saul ended up with 3 nominations, but the rest of the nominations are mostly what you would have expected. House of Cards leads everyone with 6 nominations, Game of Thrones has 5, and perennial favorites Man Men and Orange is the New Black earned 3 nods a piece.
