I doubt it will get any actual noms, maybe Stunt but it is nice to see ABC/Marvel put forward all the actors, some shows just focus on the leads.
On sound editing, I have to say that "Don't Fear the Reaper" was perfect for the episode where John Garrett turns out to be Hydra and the clairvoyant.
Aren't Chloe Bennet and Ming-Na Wen the female leadings, instead of supportin cast

Don't Fear the Reaper was also the last episode of this second season of Orange is The New Black and the first time I noticed the song was in the Buffy novel "Dark Congress", where, IRC, it was Faith's ringtone.
I think a lot of times the submit actors in a category where they think they have the best chance of getting a nomination. I'm no expert so I could be wrong, but I heard of people being submitted in different categories from year-to-year.
Ming-Na Wen is not a lead. You could make an argument for Chloe Bennet but the de facto lead is Clark Gregg.
Yes, studios often submit shows in categories that give them a better chance. This is why it was surprising when HBO put True Detective in the running for a Best Drama, rather than the miniseries or anthology category, like American Horror Story (the shows will share a somewhat similar format). HBO believes True Detective is strong enough to duke it out with the regular dramas.

I don't think the show will get nominated in anything except maybe stunt and sound editing. It's not on the same level as any of the shows that you can imagine will be nominated.
They may not get nominated but Ruth Negga and Bill Paxton deserve the nods.
