We’ve all been frustrated by the lack of recognition for Rose and her outstanding performances in iZombie week in and out – but she’s starting to receive more these days! During season 2, we managed to get the hashtag #RoseForAnEmmy pretty active on twitter, and it was clear a lot of people agree with us. Unfortunately, it seems unlikely that she’ll receive her much deserved Emmy nomination this year as well, but lets get the hashtag active again, as Rose deserves it for her incredible work on the show! And make sure you vote, vote, vote. Even if she won’t make it this year, it could definitely help her for the next one.
Sean Stangland from Daily Herald has made an article on some actors and actresses he feels the Emmy voters should really consider, and Rose made his list. You can view the full article at their website here, and I’ve posted the parts including Rose below!
The long buildup to Sept. 17’s Emmy awards began this week as online voting opened to members of the Television Academy. Between now and June 26, 22,000 industry professionals will decide the nominees in more than 100 categories, and you can see every entity submitted for nomination this year at emmys.com/ballots/2017.
The PDF file listing all eligible actors is 438 pages long, and if you look at them all — and I did — you learn some interesting things, like the fact that “Bates Motel” co-star Vera Farmiga will compete in the supporting actress category this year. Here are some long, long, long shots on the submission document whom I’d love to see get nominated on July 13:
— Rose McIver, “iZombie” (The CW): As I said in this column a few weeks ago, this season has been a tour de force for McIver as Olivia Moore, an undead medical examiner-turned-detective who takes on the personality traits of the people whose brains she consumes. In May 30’s “Twenty Sided, Die,” Liv becomes the most animated, committed Dungeon Master in the history of “Dungeons & Dragons,” to hilarious effect. McIver competes in the drama category, but hers is one of the funniest performances on TV. (Source)
