    Okay, so there was a thread on the temp boards, but I thought I'd post one here. The awards are this weekend and the Creative Arts Awards were last weekend. Here's the nominees list.


    Honestly, the awards were kind of spread around last weekend (except that Great Expectations seemed to win all the miniseries/movie awards...) so I'm not sure who I predict to win most of the categories. Which is kind of exciting.

    I hope Giancarlo Esposito wins Best Supporting Actor for a Drama Series.

    Yeah that's one I'm really, really pulling for. He's presenting an award, too. Woo!

    He's in one, but you're not. Let's ramp down the intensity.

    Yeah Evan, I know you're usually a drama queen but give it a rest for once.


    Anyway, I have no idea what's going to happen in the miniseries or movie category. Except that I am pretty sure Sherlock is winning absolutely nothing, which is insane [face_plain] I just watched ASiB again last night and holy **** is that episode good. I just hope the cast and Moffat are there... pretty please?

    Don't know how much or if it will anything at all, but I would love to see Boardwalk Empire natch something on Sunday.

    Last year it was shut out. I don't really like its chances this year.

    The real question is whether Mad Men is going to break/set the record for most Best Drama wins. Right now it's tied.

    I believe Woody Harrelson is up for Game Change, along with the film itself up for best tv movie. Something else for me to root for.

    Yeah, unfortunately that's one of the reasons Sherlock doesn't have much of a shot. Too many famous Hollywood actors nominated, and when it comes to Miniseries/movie, voters usually just tick down the list of names they know because they don't actually watch them :rolleyes:

    I wonder what the percentage is of voters who actually do that (not watching what they're supposed to).

    I read that the theory is that some people will vote or it just to see it break the record but that the last season doesn't really deverse it (I've never seen it).

    It deserves it. But so do Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, and Homeland.

    Yeah this season of Mad Men was really good. This is obviously my doing :p

    But I would really love to see Breaking Bad win some time before it's up, because it's also brilliant. And GoT. And Homeland. Yeah, I should have just liked Evan's post I guess.

    I'm so glad Louis CK won something, but the fact that John Cryer got Best Actor further demonstrates how messed up the comedy categories are. I don't understand!

    The Amazing Race won yet another award for best reality competition program.

    Tom Bergeron won for Best Reality host. (the All Star version of DWTS begins tomorrow... I wonder of Tom will bring his Emmy to the set?)

    Aaron Paul won Best Supporting Actor for Breaking Bad.

    OMG Tracey Morgan just passed out onstage at the Emmys and Homeland won for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series!

    My god, Tracy Morgan. [face_laugh] Kimmel's actually doing pretty good so far. I like the writer/director clips they're doing.

    The Emmys have been taken over by the Brits tonight, apparently.
