Really?  To be honest, I haven't heard any.  Most people have put it down to "they didn't think they had any chance to win".  You can see that Moffat himself didn't think they had any chance of winning.  But I'm sure there are some assholes out there.  I wouldn worry, because that's not the attitude of most people.

Re: Emmy nominations for HLV

This is good to hear. Of course I can only judge from what I read. And the general tendency in Germany to more or less ignore the show and their awards is not any better. Over here it was nearly all about "Breaking Bad" being the big winner and no mention of "Sherlock".

Re: Emmy nominations for HLV

I saw the one article (I believe I brought the link?) in which the author said he found the show irritating, but the vast majority of the blogs and articles I saw were very positive--writers were shocked, perhaps, that Sherlock picked up all those awards, but mostly they sounded delighted.

 Those same critics often call the Emmys boring and Redundant (which I agree with, unless Neil Patrick Harris hosts the show, it sucks), so can they blame Martin and Benedict for not wanting to fly 9 time zones away when they're both busy working and weren't exactly favorites to win.  Plenty of critics probably didn't even realize Moffit was joking when he said Benedict was too big for the show, at least they wanted it to be lost on their readers to stir up drama.  I loved seeing Stephen Colbert and Ty Burrell win, but the Emmys have to be the most boring award show all year.  I've said this a million times, but I want Stephen Colbert to do another Hobbit week this year and Martin goes all Richard III and Lester Nysgard on him (in a joking way of course) to get the trophy back.
