re: ABC not sending Castle solo DVDs for Emmy consideration. Sucks.

While yes, certainly, there is a ton of fault that falls on ABC’s shoulders, because they aren’t supporting one of their most popular shows that’s actually legitimately good - there is a lot of blame that falls on the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. She’s right. Until they add a dramedy category, shows like Castle are going to continually get screwed over.
And the reason I think it’s so completely ludicrous is because comedies get nominated, dramas get nominated, but do you know what’s ridiculously hard to do with a show? BALANCE COMEDY AND DRAMA. To be able to do it well is like striking gold. And Castle does that almost every week. If anything, anything at all, the writers should at least be nominated. Because that’s a huge feat. It’s easier to play up comedy all the time, or write constant drama. But to be able to do both, in a believable manner with great writing and excellent actors - that’s rare.
Wake up, Academy. You’re doing your art form an injustice.
