The Emmy Nominations Set Twitter Aflutter
Entertainment journalists aren’t the only ones out there with an opinion about this year’s Emmy nods. If you haven’t met the Internet, it’s chock full of folks with no shortage of something to say. Many are spot-on, and others, we suspect secretly live under footbridges, feeding on souls and living only to spread misery. Nevertheless, they can all be loud, hilarious and (warning!) foul-mouthed when it comes to online outrage and excitement, depending on what side of the nominations you stand.

Some famous Orphan Black fans couldn’t contain themselves…
TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA! TATIANA!
We don't have to burn the streets y'all!

Nor could some Orphan Black stars…

Some fans of The Americans were generous despite their disappointment…
Others were dismissive…

And some took it out on innocent victims.
Looked at list of Best Drama series. The Americans is not on it. Throw TV out window.

Happiness reigned in parts of the Empire camp…
While its Best Drama snub got others all fired up.

As did Outlander’s…

And Marvel’s Agent Carter…
Marvel's Agent Carter was completely snubbed. No #Emmys nods.

And The Mindy Project.

Some spoke bueno of the dead…
Hannibal… 0 nominaciones #Emmys

Others were less-than-rapturous…
How can The fucking Newsroom and GOT get nominations and not The Leftovers aka the ONLY HBO show other than Veep that matters?? #Emmys
— M❄️lly (@onlyoneloislane) July 16, 2015
And at least one tweeted from 2003…
Still don't understand how streaming shows on Netflix can be eligible for #Emmys – if I can't find it with my remote, then it is not on TV.

But everyone had their favorites…
Favorite random nomination: Jon Hamm for Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. #Emmys

Even if celebrating them meant blowing out one candle to make another shine brighter…
Loving the #Emmys nominations. Pumped BETTER CALL SAUL got so much love, also happy Jim Parsons got none.

Or just speaking the truth…
Emmy nominations are like Christmas morning, and Modern Family is like the same exact nail polish my mom puts in my stocking year after year

Another year of Hollywood pretending Modern Family isn't a trash show.
