Cranston is up against McConaughey, not a lock by any means.

Poor, poor Jon Hamm. The split season has truly screwed him over.

There should be a new group of categories for dramadies. OITNB, Shameless, Louie, Girls and more have little in common with sitcoms. Premium serialized dramas are fine to compete against networks.

Sad to see nothing for Hannibal, Review or Enlightened, when the usual suspects of BBT, Modern Family and coasting movie stars are practically seeds at this point.

But yay Treme!

Also Dean Norris > Aaron Paul in 5b. Not sure which episode to single out for Anna Gunn, she did great work throughout as her world was destroyed.

How fucking depressing to see Big Bang Theory up there. Absolutely terrible show.

Emmy Awards

It should have been knocked out of contention for Brooklyn Nine Nine at the very least. It just won the Golden Globe!

I always say I don't care, but goddammit.

Seriously. I figured at least Mads would get a nod, if not Dancy. Hell, even Michael Pitt.

Ah, but this Emmy nom for The DINK! is for Season 3, I'm pretty sure.

Nope, season 4. This Emmy year covers July 13 to June 14 I think.

How the hell is Louie in the Comedy sections? It hasn't been funny all season!

On top of that, how is the episode for which Louis got a writing nod "So Did The Fat Lady" when "In The Woods" qualified?

As great as it was to hear the "Fat Lady" concluding monologue, the construction and character work on Into the Woods was a lot more impressive.and what's weird is that the guest actress from the former wasn't even nominated herself.

This, but "solid" don't cut it when it comes to awards.

Of course, I'll be rooting against Breaking Bad in all categories. Not that the stumbling-across-the-finish-line True Detective is worthier.

Strange that True Detective didn't go the American Horror Story route and call themselves a mini-series. They would've swept, had they. Now they're going up against the "final" season of Breaking Bad, instead.

An article on Grantland suggested that HBO is more interested in the appearance of dominance then actual awards. So getting True Detective into the Best Drama lineup at the expense of another popular show is more prestigious in their minds. Not to mention Harrelson and MMC both getting onto the Drama Actor list.

Appearance of dominance as opposed to actual dominance?
