Awards shows are so overrated that it almost doesn't matter at this point. Even when something good is actually nominated, it never wins anyway. Emmy's included. I don't know how many times I've watched an award show, knowing a certain movie, show, or actor should win only to give it to the most obscure, pretentious crap that almost no one watched.
When I heard about it getting nominated for an Emmy, I almost bust a gut in laughter. I mean Jesus, they aren't even trying to be subtle about it anymore. I don't care about LGBT friendly shows getting nominated, but even my gay friends thought that episode was absolute garbage. Of course, I'm sure the show reflecting them as sexual deviants had a lot to do with it.
