    Was it? I haven't been watching but I heard Season 3 wasn't that strong. Or maybe that was Season 2.

    It was much better than season 2 but no where near as good as the other shows in the category.

    Breaking bad should win best writing for "dead freight" that episode was amazing.
    I'm expecting Homeland to clean house again like last year.

    That show is so bad it doesn't deserve to win anything.

    I wouldn't mind House of Cards or Mad Men winning because they are really good, but BB deserves it.

    The Emmys are a farce. It is as much of a popularity contest as it is about quality.

    Agreed, I've only seen 4 of the performances but Riggs was excellent.

    I tried watching, but couldn't get into it. Anyone here who likes Homeland tell me why people like it so much?

    Because they like watching Ugly Carrie cry and rehashed versions of 24. Homeland sucks balls.

    Good to see GoT get some love.

    It won't win Best Drama Series but I'll be rooting for it.

    Diana Rigg has a good shot at winning.

    Emilia Clarke's nomination? Mmh, I'm not gonna hate on her. Good for the show to get recognition. But Michelle Fairley got shafted.

    A post about ANY show that didn't get nominated, ending with exclamation points to denote my disdain directed towards the opinion of others!!! :mad:

    The walking dead has terribly acting and a ton of plot holes on a regular basis. I watch it because it has zombies but its nowhere near the quality of anything that was nominated

    "Breaking Bad" shouldn't win for this long ass delay in showing the final episodes. I can barely remember the plotline at this point.

    'Modern Family' again? Ugh.

    Excited to see that Bobby Cannavale got a nomination for Boardwalk. Gyp Rosetti was a badass.
