CALLING ALL TMP FANDOM! WE NEED YOU!
Our girl, Mindy, along with her cast and writers, were snubbed by the Emmy voters this morning.
We want to band together as a fandom to show her that we love her so much, and we support the show now more than ever.
That’s why I have organized an impromptu live Re-watch tonight.
TIME: 9:30 EST, 8:30 CST, etc. you know the drill.
EPISODE: Danny & Mindy
Hashtag: Please use two hashtags in your tweets if you can. #FullSeasonForMindy and #ThankYouMindy. Add adorable messages about the specific episode, why you love her, or the show in general, and how you still love it despite the stupid Emmy voters. It’s okay to be angry, but this is more about showing appreciation and love to our #1 girl and her amazing show!
Feel free to tag her and other people involved in the show in your tweets! (You know the drill!)
What you can do to help: Reblog this, and tag your tmp fandom friends so we all know what’s up. This isn’t a scheduled rewatch, so as of right now, I’m the only one who knows about it.
Tweet at people who tweeted at Mindy about being snubbed. Let them know what’s up. You can link this post if you want an easy explanation!
Tweet tweet tweet! I know we all have busy lives, but please make time to do this! This has been a rough day, and Mindy, and this fandom, needs us.
THE WHOLE POINT IS TO GET THIS TRENDING SO SHE, AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO WORKS ON THE SHOW, CAN SEE IT.
LET’S MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
PLEASE WATCH on Fox On demand, Fox Now, or Hulu.
i am also getting angrier at myself for not sleeping at all in the past 12 hours. i stayed up for nothing. mindy woke up in the middle of the night for nothing. all this excitement and hope and anxiousness was for nothing.
but i’m just mostly angry that i can’t go back to sleep because i have class soon, so yay me.
I can’t say I’m surprised.
When they got to lead actress in a drama and I didn’t see Tatiana Maslany’s name I knew we were out of luck.
If there was any performance that has been unanimously praised, it’s been her’s and rightfully so. Any actor who sees her performance is simply marveled by it.
So either they only vote for what they watch and don’t bother to try to watch Orphan Black, or their acting expertise is extremely limited.
So when that happened I knew Mindy and Chris would get snubbed as they didn’t have half the buzz or press support behind them as Tatiana.
If you look at all of the nominations in the acting categories, they are mostly all big and flashy, and “ACTING!!!” Moments. I doubt a performance like Chris’s will ever get recognized because it’s quieter and layered and much more rewarding to those that really pay attention and put in the time to get to know Danny. One episode does not do his performance justice because while great in them, the impact is lost without all of the emotional build. He acts for character arcs and the story, not for water cooler and buzz worthy moments.
I will say I thought Merritt Wever would never get recognized for her great performance as Zoey on Nurse Jackie but she finally got a nomination a few seasons in. She deserved since season 1.
Supporting actress is a much less competitive category than the leads though.
Honestly if I was nominated as an actor this year in any category, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it or trust their credibility since Tatiana Maslany was. not. nominated.
I hope they all have better luck with the Golden Globes.
