"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

Such a broad television landscape, so many networks, such a wealth of programming, so many performances and writing and directorial efforts and the SAME people and shows just keep winning. Wake me when it's over.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTroy H.

Wow that supporting actress mini series category was so star packed!!! Congrats to Kathy Bates though well deserved

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterdavid

Parsons? This reeeelly isn't funny.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

How boring.... Just the same people and shows winning. And people complain about the Oscars?

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJamie

I can't believe that Coven won two acting awards and Asylum (which was better in just about every way) won zero.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterdenny

Jessica Lange. Best award of the night.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterbrookesboy

anna! very deserving.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

Did Lena Dunham know she was gonna lose, and therefore made sure she at least won Worst Dressed and Worst Hair?

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterUlrich

Yah! JM for Good Wife.!!!

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

cranston!!! can't believe he won, but fantastic.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo

oh lord, not the "modern family" again...

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo


The Modern Family win was the biggest bulshit in a night of bullshits!

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJJ

At least the Modern Family guy always gives a good speech but really, its time to move on.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

Every time I don't think it's possible to hate a show that I've never seen as much as I do "Breaking Bad" wins another award. Someone please tell me that it's finally over. Please.

This year's show was soooooo boring mainly because it was like everyone read from a list of winners from five years ago. I don't even think the voters have seen any of the new series they nominated. They probably relied on social media buzz to give them nominations.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTroy H.

Y'know how teevee people always talk about bowing out while they're still on top? Modern Family, this is that moment.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHayden W

yes, "breaking bad"! non-viewers can complain!

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermarcelo


August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSteven

Aaron Paul gave one of the absolute worst performances of the year in Need For Speed; the guy should stick to TV ---- he's not moviestar material.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterUlrich

Troy -- it is finally over, yes. Unfortunately its legacy of splitting seasons to cheat and win two prizes will now be a thing. Mad Men's trying it and others will follow.

August 25, 2014 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

How the heck did Modern Family beat Veep and Orange is the New Black? It's just bizarre how much they love this show.

Very happy for Fargo & Breaking Bad tonight. I'm strangely proud that the emmy's still awarded Cranston even in the face of his movie star competitor. That's something you'll never see at something like the Globes.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAnonny

Mad Men' Emmy curse continues: Now 34 acting losses.

The shame, really.

And Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler, both amazing performers and hallmarks of the TV of the 2000s/2010s, are a year away of joining Steve Carell.

Not that I don't love Julia Louis Dreyfus or Bryan Cranston, but they both have FIVE and SIX Emmys now. Spread the riches, people.

And please, the less we talk about the AWFUL Modern Family awardage, the better. It's embarrassing to still be giving it awards at this moment in time.

Nevertheless, I love how the right performers get the wins from the cast. Burrell, Stonestreet and Bowen were miles above the rest of the cast. But that show should've stopped winning things back in 2012.

August 25, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJay

Pretty remarkable snubs for The Normal Heart I thought.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBD


August 26, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterpar

I've seen one episode of modern family and it gah was it awful. Does throwing an assortment of stereotypes into one household really set the standard for quality television these days? Sheesh.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterW.J.

Frances Conroy should have won.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterBrad

I still dont understand why True Detective was running as a drama series. Not only it was NOT, it would have won everything in a slide had it qualified as a miniseries.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda

Kathy Bates is officially the Hilary Swank in Julia Roberts' life.

(2014) Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie
(1990) Oscar for Actress in a Leading Role

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered Commenter3rtful

Troy- You sound pretty childish when you spend so much energy hating something you haven't even seen. (Not saying this as a fan. Like yourself, I've never watched it either.)

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAmir

The actor who might win both an Emmy and an Oscar is now Cumberbatch and not McConaughey.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered Commentermurtada

Is it too much to hope that the academy cites a retraction cause whoever was in charge of the vote tallying for the main categories accidentally copy-pasted the winners list of a previous year? This is just so disappointing.

And yes, Frances Conroy should have won. (Now that I think about it, much as I love Christine Ebersole, they sure missed a chance in not casting Anjelica Huston as the former Supreme. Her or Jane Horrocks.)

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSanty C.

Remember when Bill Cosby and Candice Bergen took themselves out of the running for Emmys? Some of today's stars could learn by example.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

Amir- I wouldn't call it childish per sé, but I think the frustration is stemming from the fatigue that sets in when you see the same crop of shows over and over and over and over as contender/winners.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Really? Did Larry Kramer lost to "Sherlock Holmes"!@#$% How many version of that stupid story do we need? Shame on you emmy voters, shame on you. And I won't even talk about Amy Poehler still being "emmyless" (I know I just did but this one REALLY hurts)...

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterstjeans

Give it a rest, Amir. It's not like I have a club devoted to it, though I'll admit that my rabid love for "Mad Men," which is always on the losing end of every acting race, coupled with the ardent fan following of "Breaking Bad," which has been "MM"'s stiffest competition, doesn't make me terribly objective. I think there is enough TV programming for the love to be spread around, whether to my favorite shows or others that are deserving. The fact that a handful of performers can dominate they're categories in such fashion for as long as their shows air doesn't bode well for either the process or the telecast.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterTroy H.

denny-- Asylum got a win for James Cromwell.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered Commenteranon

Damn, Cary Fukunaga is just so yummy. Oh, and talented.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLizzy

I imagine the fatigue I have while watching the Emmys is similar to the fatigue most people have in regards to Meryl and the Oscars.

August 26, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterAllen

Allen - but the average amount of wins for everyone last night was 3 which is all Meryl's won ever. Emmys are WAY more repetitive. But i see your point.

Lizzy - co-sign. such a good director, too.

Suzanne - absolutely. That was classy. If they're rewarding you too much, be a generous person and step aside.

August 26, 2014 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

Oh and my final thoughts on last night's event and suggested rule fixes are up here.
