Let’s start with the red carpet, shall we? Ok, sad life. I didn’t get to watch the Emmys red carpet! Heartbreak. I was able to catch most of the ceremony and post coverage though.
Drama: BREAKING BAD! I watch everything, but this was the most deserved award of the night.
Lead Actor in a Drama: Jeff Daniels. WHAT?!?! Listen, I like Newsroom as much as the next, but he was the last one I expected to win in the category.
Lead Actress in a Drama: Claire Danes. Her ugly cry on Homeland needs an Emmy of it’s own. Brava.
Supporting Actress in a Drama: Anna Gunn for Breaking Bad. She deserved it. But, all of the women in the category deserved it.
Supporting Actor in a Drama: Not Aaron Paul. NOT AARON PAUL? Fuck everything.
Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series: David Fincher for House of Cards. Thumbs up.
Comedy: Modern Family. I can get behind that.
Lead Actress in a Comedy: Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I haven’t watched Veep yet, but everyone says it’s amazing so she probably deserved it.
Lead Actor in a Comedy: Jim Parsons. How Big Bang Theory wins anything is beyond me.
Supporting Actress in a Comedy: Merritt Wever. I don’t watch this show but her amazing acceptance speech made me want to.
Supporting Actor in a Comedy: Tony Hale. I didn’t expect that. Again, I haven’t seen Veep yet but compared to the other nominees, I didn’t expect him to win.
Miniseries or Movie: Behind the Candelabra. BOOM. So much win.
Like I said, I missed the red carpet. A lot of looks seemed typical and safe but these are some that stood out to me from what I did manage to see:
I do appreciate the ones that took risks but I can’t say I loved them. Come onnnn…
What’s going on with these??
Thoughts on the overall ceremony: I love NPH. He’s an amazing host. The ceremony as a whole was weird, sad, and random but that’s better than boring, right? I watch almost every show nominated so I felt like I needed to be there to cheer all of my my TV friends on!
