P.S. If you’re interesting in how the Emmy voting process is changing this year, here’s a pretty detailed article about it.


  1. I love the show, obviously, and think the entire cast makes it work, but I don’t think that the character of Ryan had enough going on this season to warrant an Emmy nomination for B.J. Novak. His “relationship” with Kelly is funny, but there’s nowhere near as much going on there as there is with Jim and Pam, or even just Jim. I just don’t think Ryan’s talking head about hooking up on February 13th (his best bit) can be fairly compared to Casino Night, et. al. Mindy Kaling should definitely get a writing nod. She has written nearly all of my favorite episodes.

  2. I didn’t see it, but interesting to note that the FYC for Last Call with Carson Daly for Variety series was the Tarantino/Fischer episode.
