“Of course, I’m always disappointed when it’s not us, although I will say there’s always that moment of relief of not having to make a speech if I’m the one who has to make the speech. We’ve been so lucky to be nominated so many times. So far, every season of the show has been nominated for “Best Drama Series.” I mean, for a spin-off, I think that’s a pretty amazingthing.

Also, the Critics Choice Awards and the other awards shows have been very, very good to us. So it feels like I would be a creep to be too upset. Too upset like, “Oh, I didn’t get my award.” Having said that, we love the Emmys, and we would love the Emmys to love us back.”

During an interview with Discussing Film, when the interviewer asked Peter Gould how he felt about receiving 46 Emmy nominations but winning none, Gould replied that although nobody is born deserving of an award, for a spinoff the show was pretty darn deserving of an award. Although he shares that he is not upset with the outcome as the show has won multiple other awards, Gould would have liked some Emmys too. Peter Gould joking added that he had a moment of relief when the show didn’t win an Emmy as he would have had to make a speech for the occasion otherwise.
