I don't think so. I think Anna Gunn's got that locked up also.

Turn the Emmys into a four-hour Breaking Bad lovefest. Everyone involved with the show deserves it. That's not to say there aren't some other great shows out there. But Breaking Bad is in a class of its own.

Pretty much just turn the Emmy's into a Breaking Bad Reunion Revival and give them every single Emmy.

All of them

Agreed.  If Edie Falco could win awards for her role as Carmela Soprano, then Gunn deserves more.  She showed more range and emotions in one episode than Falco ever did in many years of "The Sopranos."  I really dislike Gunn's character, but that one episode alone convinced it for me.  The way her feelings visibly changed the moment she realized that Walt was acting it up over the phone to give her an out with law enforcement - fan-farking-tastic.  And how she ran out into the street when Holly was kidnapped - damn.

Game of Thrones is one of those reasons why Smell-O-Vision never took off.  Nobody wants their living room to smell like the 4 or 5 Medieval vaginas that get banged out on each episode.

Eh, there are no guarantees with the Emmys.  They'll still be going up against Mad Men (four-time winners), Homeland (winner), Game of Thrones (possibly winning this year), Downton Abbey, House of Cards, Boardwalk Empire, and a host of potential newcomers (Orange is the New Black, True Detective, Masters of Sex).  Breaking Bad thus far hasn't won any Emmys outside of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, and while I think they'll be the frontrunners next year (depending on these last two episodes), they're hardly "a lock."

The Banana Thug: And how she ran out into the street when Holly was kidnapped - damn.


especially when you consider she has the keys to the two vehicles - IN THE SHOT ALONG WITH HER - that she could use to chase down a half-century-old pickup.

Can we all agree that we are in a golden age of scripted television?  With everyone complaining about reality TV and shows like Two-and-a-Half Men, atleast we have some great dramas around.

Everyone raved about The Wire - and justifiably so - but how many Emmys did it win? I think that Cranston is a lock for Best Actor either this year and/or next, but all other major awards for Breaking Bad are mere possibilities at this point.

/also, the suckage that was season two of Homeland still came away with a lot of hardware

To be fair, season 2 of Homeland started strong after they completely farked up the ending of the first season.  Then it got bad... really bad... but I still stand by the fact that it started strong.

I absolutely agree and everybody nattering about recently about how the end of Mad Men will mean the end of the golden age are just wrong.  The golden age isn't ending, it's just closing the curtain on Act One.  The age of the white male antihero is over, but we're now seeing a lot of shows based around women or strong male-female dynamics and there's just so much more than before.  Top of the Lake was fantastic, Orange is the New Black is great as well.  And that's not even getting into the enormous second tier like Boardwalk Empire, The Americans, Justified, The Bridge, etc.  It may be tougher to find great shows like The Sopranos, Mad Men, or Breaking Bad.  But that second tier of "very good" shows is show much bigger than it was even five years ago.

Meanwhile the man who gave us Joffrey Baratheon, thinks there's just no one in his universe as bad as Walter White. "Walter White is a bigger monster than anyone in Westeros," he wrote.

Walter White is no Joffrey Baratheon, and he doesn't generally revel in sadistic pleasure. He does what is often convenient for him without much regard to ethics, but he does care for some people, in his own farked up way. Joffrey though, is a sadist. He'd feed people their own limbs in a delightful hollandaise sauce if it amused him.

I dunno, Breaking Bad has it down on the writing tip. It's an original story and GoT is based on a book. They both have great production values, GoT maybe a little bigger. I'd give acting to BB. One thing is for sure, Dexter really screwed the pooch this year.
 
2013-09-18 02:47:21 PM  
All I know is that these last two episodes of BB better blow my friggin mind and not fake mind blow like Jesse on the floor with sheep brains blow. I'm talking bodies piled to the skies and blue meth and money raining down!
