Emmy’s Wrap-Up

It’s Tuesday, so on a normal week, you’d just be getting over a case of the Monday’s. But this week is different. Today, for the first time since 1976, we are spending our Tuesday wrapping up the Emmy’s. This was a monumental year for TV: Breaking Bad and Mad Men ended their legacies and a transgender actor was nominated for the first time in history. So as the anticipation eats away at you, let us begin.



Drama series
My Prediction/WINNER: Breaking Bad, AMC
Downton Abbey, PBS
Game of Thrones, HBO
House of Cards, Netflix
Mad Men, AMC
True Detective, HBO


Comedy series
WINNER:Modern Family, ABC
The Big Bang Theory, CBS
Louie, FX
Orange is the New Black (Netflix)
Silicon Valley (HBO)
My Prediction: Veep (HBO)

Not that I don’t think Modern Family deserves this, in fact it’s my second favorite sitcom of all time (RIP How I Met Your Mother,) but people are LOVING Veep. I haven’t caught on to the phenomena, but I’m thinking they gave it to the vets instead of the HBO rookie because MOFY is an overall fantastic show. Not saying Veep isn’t, but let’s be honest: Julia Louis-Dreyfus runs things. Without her, that show would not be what it is.


Actor, drama series
My prediction/WINNER: Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad (AMC)
Matthew McConaughey, True Detective (HBO)
Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom (HBO)
Woody Harrelson, True Detective (HBO)
Jon Hamm, Mad Men (AMC)
Kevin Spacey, House of Cards (Netflix)


Actress, drama series
My prediction/WINNER:Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife (CBS)
Robin Wright, House of Cards(Netflix)
Lizzy Caplan, Masters of Sex (Showtime)
Claire Danes, Homeland (Showtime)
Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey (PBS)
Kerry Washington, Scandal (ABC)


Actor, comedy series
My prediction/WINNER: Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory (CBS) 
Louis C.K., Louie (FX)
Don Cheadle, House of Lies (Showtime)
Ricky Gervais, Derek (Netflix)
Matt LeBlanc, Episodes (Showtime)
William H. Macy, Shameless (Showtime)


Actress, comedy series
WINNER: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep (HBO)
Lena Dunham, Girls (HBO)
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie (Showtime)
Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly (CBS)
Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation (NBC)
My prediction: Taylor Schilling, Orange is the New Black (Netflix)

As always, this category brings it. But Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a four-time Emmy winning actress. Taylor Schilling really did get her name out there, but I personally think she would have deserved it more if she was nominated for the second season, instead of the first. And while the rest of the nominees are without a doubt hilarious, this one was a given, even if I felt a bit biased.


Supporting actor, drama series
WINNER/My prediction: Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad (AMC)
Jim Carter, Downton Abbey (PBS)
Josh Charles, The Good Wife (CBS)
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones (HBO)
Mandy Patinkin, Homeland (Showtime)
Jon Voight, Ray Donovan (Showtime)


Supporting actress, drama series
WINNER: Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad (AMC)
Christine Baranski, The Good Wife (CBS)
Joanne Froggatt, Downton Abbey (PBS)
Lena Headey, Game of Thrones (HBO)
My prediction: Christina Hendricks, Mad Men (AMC)
Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey (PBS)

Let me make this very clear: I LOVE Anna Gunn and believe wholeheartedly that she deserves this, but with Mad Men coming to an end this year, the academy could have thrown something her way. Luckily, she’s got two BIG awards to come home with every night.


Supporting actor, comedy series
My prediction/WINNER: Ty Burrell, Modern Family (ABC)
Andre Braugher, Brookyn Nine-Nine (Fox)
Fred Armisen, Portlandia (IFC)
Adam Driver, Girls (HBO)
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family (HBO)
Tony Hale, Veep (HBO)


Supporting actress, comedy series
WINNER: Allison Janney, Mom (CBS)
Mayim Bialik, The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
My prediction: Julie Bowen, Modern Family (ABC)
Anna Chlumsky, Veep (HBO)
Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Live (NBC)
Kate Mulgrew, Orange Is the New Black (Netflix)

Honestly: who watches Mom? Granted, Allison Janney is spectacular in whatever she does, but really? I would have thought Mayim Bialik would have taken it home before her, but I would have loved for Julie Bowen to win alongside her TV husband. Because who doesn’t love Phil and Claire?


Guest actor, drama series
Joe Morton, Scandal (ABC)


Guest actress, drama series
Allison Janney, Masters of Sex (Showtime)

Competition reality program
The Amazing Race (CBS)
The Voice (NBC)
Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
Project Runway (Lifetime)
So You Think You Can Dance (Fox)
Top Chef (Bravo)

The Amazing Race was the most predictable winner here, but I still think America’s Got Talent got rigged. They totally deserved a nom, if not a win. 


Reality host
WINNER: Jane Lynch, Hollywood Game Night (NBC)
Anthony Bourdain, The Taste (ABC)
Tom Bergeron, Dancing With the Stars (ABC)
Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance (Fox)
My prediction: Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn, Project Runway (Lifetime)
Betty White, Off Their Rockers (NBC)

I knew I should’ve started watching Hollywood Game Night! Despite my prediction, I didn’t expect Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn to win. After all, Project Runway has been going down the stinker for quite some time, but I’m happy for Jane Lynch. She is a phenomenal comic and apparently an even better reality host.


Structured reality program
My prediction/WINNER:Shark Tank, ABC
Antiques Roadshow
Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Food Network
Mythbusters, Discovery
Undercover Boss, CBS
Who Do You Think You Are?, TLC


Unstructured reality program
WINNER:Deadliest Catch 10, Discovery
Alaska: The Last Frontier
, Discovery
Flipping Out, Bravo
Million Dollar Listing: New York, Bravo
Wahlburgers, A&E
Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan, BBC America


Unstructured reality programs are not exactly my forte, but from what I’ve heard, Deadliest Catch is what’s up.



Variety series
My prediction/WINNER: The Colbert Report, Comedy
The Daily Show, Comedy
Jimmy Kimmel Live!, ABC
Real Time With Bill Maher, HBO
Saturday Night Live, NBC

But honestly: what about Jimmy Fallon?


Writing, variety series
The Colbert Report, Comedy


Directing, variety series
Don Roy King, Saturday Night Live (Jimmy Fallon), NBC


Variety special
AFI Lifetime Achievement Awards: A Tribute to Mel Brooks (TNT)


Writing, variety special

Glenn Weiss, 67th Annual Tony Awards, CBS


My prediction/WINNER: Fargo, FX
American Horror Story: Coven, FX
Bonnie & Clyde, Lifetime
Luther, BBC America
Treme, HBO
The White Queen, Starz


WINNER/my prediction: The Normal Heart, HBO
Killing Kennedy, National Geographic
Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight, HBO
Sherlock: His Last Vow, Masterpiece/PBS
The Trip to Bountiful, Lifetime


Actor, miniseries or movie
WINNER: Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock: His Last Vow (Masterpiece/PBS)
My prediction:
 Billy Bob Thornton, Fargo (FX)
Chiwetel Ejiofor, Dancing on the Edge (Starz)
Idris Elba, Luther (BBC America)
Martin Freeman, Fargo (FX)
Mark Ruffalo, The Normal Heart (HBO)

I never got in to Fargo, but from what I’ve heard, this was Billy Bob’s role of a life time. And considering they killed him off in season one, I thought he would have been the without-a-doubt winner. But Benedict Cumberbatch sure is sexy…and that ALS bucket challenge of his took the cake.


Actress, miniseries or movie
My prediction/WINNER: Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
Cicely Tyson, The Trip to Bountiful (Lifetime)
Helena Bonham Carter, Burton and Taylor (BBC America)
Minnie Driver, Return to Zero (Lifetime)
Sarah Paulson, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
Kristen Wiig, The Spoils of Babylon (IFC)


Supporting actor, miniseries or movie
WINNER: Martin Freeman, Sherlock: His Last Vow (Masterpiece/PBS)
My prediction: Matt Bomer, The Normal Heart (HBO)
Colin Hanks, Fargo (FX)
Joe Mantello, The Normal Heart (HBO)
Alfred Molina, The Normal Heart (HBO)
Jim Parsons, The Normal Heart (HBO)

I just thought The Normal Heart was going to sweep the awards this season but hey, Sherlock sure did make a name for itself.


Supporting actress, miniseries or movie
WINNER: Kathy Bates, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
Angela Bassett, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
Ellen Burstyn, Flowers in the Attic (Lifetime)
Frances Conroy, American Horror Story: Coven (FX)
My prediction: Julia Roberts, The Normal Heart (HBO)
Allison Tolman, Fargo (FX)

I repeat: “I just thought The Normal Heart was going to sweep the awards this season,” and besides, Julia Roberts is always a winner in my eyes.


Writing, miniseries or movie
Steven Moffat, Sherlock: His Last Vow, Masterpiece/PBS


Directing, miniseries or movie

Colin Bucksey, Fargo (FX)

AMC announces ‘Breaking Bad’ spinoff

Better Call Saul.

Well it looks like someone has been calling Saul. As AMC’s Breaking Bad enters its fifth and final season, it is likely that the franchise will continue, but in a different light.

It is rumored that a new series will come about, which will circulate around Bob Odenkirk’s criminal lawyer character, Saul Goodman.

No deals have been made, but it is assumed that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and series writer-producer Peter Gould will develop the series.

While Gilligan hasn’t confirmed any details, he did say,

“I like the idea of a lawyer show in which the main lawyer will do anything it takes to stay out of a court of law. He’ll settle on the courthouse steps, whatever it takes to stay out of the courtroom. That would be fun — I would like that.”

If you’re familiar with Odenkirk’s character, then you know he is quite the sleazeball. With all the action-packed drama in the show, he definitely brings some comic relief.

If the show is developed, it will most likely be a comedy; whether it will be a half hour or an hour long is yet to be decided.

Stranger steals Breaking Bad script!

Bryan Cranston

Fans: beware the spoilers!

Word is that a man has been arrested for breaking into Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston’s car and stole a brown bag containing some personal property, an ipad, and a script for the final season!

29-year old Xavier McAfee was taken into custody Friday on suspicion of burglary breaking into the actor’s white Audi back in December.

Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department’s Aaron Williamson says that Cranston “had driven up [to Albuquerque] and parked his car and walked out to the lookout to take in the views of the city. He was only gone for 10 minutes and realized his car…[had] been broken into.”

A confidential informant told the police that he had known of an individual in possession of a Breaking Bad script, and the man was looking to sell the iPad.

No details of the script have been revealed: it could contain a scene, or even the whole season, but Williamson knows that the crew is “trying to keep tight wraps on this final season and how it is going to end.”

The final season of Breaking Bad will premiere this summer with or without the stolen script. Yeahhh bitch!

Breaking Bad Final Season Premiere RELEASED…and then unreleased

Breaking bad season 5

For fans of AMC’s 7 time Emmy winning show, the news is heartbreaking. For the leading men, the sadness in unimaginable.

After 5 years with the show, Aaron Paul expressed his sadness this morning, tweeting,

He later added that the season 5 part 2 premiere will air July 14th and some shit is going to break!

However, he then said that he was mistaken, but the premiere will air before the end of the summer.

So even though we want the world to stop for a little, all good things must come to an end. Bring on the meth and we’ll cry out chemicals!
