Congrats to the winners! It seems like a lot of them repeated. Jon Voight is the best ctor playing the best role on tv right now (even if he's basically playing himself). He wins next year.

Renoblondee said...

Ate you kidding me with the same winners for like 10 years straight? Ugh.

auntliddy said...

Loved breaking bad from episode one, so glad it won. Please enty, let us not dither about emmys all dam day, okay?

Seven of Eleven said...

Martin Freeman, Bendy, and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss FTW!

Modern Family noms remind me of Friends and Seinfeld. Nominations and awards for popularity rather than talent.

Pip said...

Jon Voight is playing a delusional Birther? I've never seen the show. He is a good actor, I'll give him that.

Kathy Bates deserved her win. She made AHS so much more entertaining than it already was. She made her racist, sociopathic character likeable.

sandybrook said...

No Pip he's playing slime.

Kat has left the building said...

I'm just mad Ricky Gervais didn't win

Sherry said...

Missed most the show and just caught some snippets. Glad Alison Janney won. Love her.

mzmarymac said...

Still pissed off that Orphan Black and Tatiana were snubbed. GRRR....

Lisa said...

You know what ticks me off? When people gripe about who wins. You think someone else was better- fine. But these guys are good and have worked just as hard as the ones you think are deserving. Congrats to all!

Seven of Eleven said...

@Lisa, are you in the biz? PR maybe? Not everyone who wins deserves it. Tatiana Masley being shut out while Oatmeal is the New Black is dubbed a comedy and the lead gets a nom for playing - wait for it - an upper class blonde in jail with a bunch of reprobates (with far more interesting stories) is a great example. Jenji Kohan is an excellent writer and even she admitted she had to use the upper class white girl card to sell the show.

Fun fact: Jenji Kohan is working on a new HBO series about the Salem witches!
