Howdy! Here's the thread for all things about Nashville and awards, whether it's nominations, wins, losses or most importantly, fashion. For example, the Emmy nominations will be announced next month and I think that while the show itself might be ignored, Connie Britton and Hayden Panatierre might have good chances at nominations for Lead and Supporting Actress, respectively. On the actor front, Charles Esten's a dark horse for a Supporting Actor nomination, which is a shame, given his brilliant work in the Season Finale.
The Nashville Awards Thread: My Kinda Party

I have no info, but honestly the one who deserves an award, probably the ONLY one in my eyes, is Hayden Panetierre.

I agree Charles Esten was pretty awesome, especially in the last episode. I don't know how the awards are given out. If it for an episode it's obviously different than for the whole season.

The nominations are based on the whole show, then each actor submits an episode for voting.

Congratulations to Connie Britton for her Emmy nomination as Best Actress in a Drama Series!

I'm surprised that Nashville got a nomination at all. I don't watch HBO, Showtime, or AMC which eliminates a lot of awards. The only shows that I watch that received nominations are Nashville, Glee, The Americans, and the reality/variety shows (Top Chef, The Daily Show, etc.). I don't think Connie will win. I suppose she seems like the lead character and she's the older actress so they nominated her over Hayden though I thought Hayden did great work this season. Rayna is such a flat character. I didn't think there was much for Connie to do with the part (putting my intense hatred of Rayna aside). Connie usually came across as tired or bored, whereas Hayden made me cry multiple times in that season finale. Sigh...

I read somewhere that Hayden was nominated in the Supporting category. She really should have gotten the nod, she's done fantastic work. Connie Britton did a find job too, but nothing outstanding in my mind. Charles Esten did some outstanding work too, but his category was so deep, particularly with those beloved HBO, Showtime and AMC series that he really didn't stand a chance. But he's been mentioned in any number of articles as deserving of a nod for his work, so good for him.

I read somewhere that Hayden was nominated in the Supporting category. She really should have gotten the nod, she's done fantastic work.
The nominees for best supporting actress in a drama series are Anna Gunn in Breaking Bad, Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey, Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones, Morena Baccarin in Homeland, Christina Hendricks in Mad Men, and Christine Baranski in The Good Wife. Honestly, no surprises there. The Emmy people love all of those shows. I'm actually surprised that they gave Connie Britton a nomination in the best lead actress category but I think the Emmys like established/respected actors and are more of a "you have paid your dues" kind of award.

Once you get one nomination, it's easier to get another. So in that respect, I'm not surprised Connie cracked the field. I think the Supporting category is perhaps the hardest one to crack so I wasn't expecting Hayden to get nominated.

I agree. Everyone was hoping for Tatiana Maslany to get recognized this year but the Emmy's prefer old standbys. Connie Britton definitely deserved Emmy nominations for Friday Night Lights so I think it's just finally turning up well for her. Hayden Panettiere has been acting since she was less than a year old but she probably needs to build up more of a grown up reputation.

This is only sort of peripherally related to Nashville, but it's kind of neat. I just read that Kacey Musgraves, who wrote a couple of songs for Nashville, won best new artist last night at the CMAs. A fun instance of life imitating art for once, rather than the other way around, since one of the songs she wrote was performed by Juliette (Undermine) and they had Juliette winning a CMA on Nashville.
I normally don't really care about music awards at all, but Musgraves has a neat song called Follow Your Arrow that's viewed (rightly so, I think) as a progressive step forward. So for once I cared who won something at the CMAs.

I love that song! And I am really starting to love this show, so I hope it wins that People's Choice award...although now when I go look, it is up against my other fave, Parenthood. (I still voted for Nashville though, as I found the link here and it only seemed right.)

I'm glad Hayden is getting some recognition from the Golden Globes.
