Emmy Winners

Honestly? I didn’t watch the Emmy’s tonight. I’ve lost all hope that the Emmy voters have any idea who to vote for. The nominations are silly. And, oh look, Breaking Bad swept the drama category. Oh, hey, Modern Family won… again.

Breaking Bad has already won the Emmy for Best Drama series (last year). Anna Gunn won last year. Aaron Paul won two years ago. He won the year before that. Bryan Cranston won that year too. Cranston also won in 2009, and 2008. Bryan Cranston has now won 4 Emmys for playing Walter White, Aaron Paul has won three, and Anna Gunn has won two. Yay for diversity!

Julianna Marguilies won her second Emmy for her role in The Good Wife tonight. Jim Parsons won his fourth Emmy tonight for his role in The Big Bang Theory. Julia Louis-Dreyfus won her third Emmy for Veep. Modern Family won its fifth straight Emmy for Best Series, and Ty Burrell won his second Emmy tonight.

Seriously.

How can we take this seriously if you just keep giving awards to the same people every year? Yes, they are giving great performances, but there are other actors giving great performances every year too.

And Martin Freeman won for Sherlock? Good for him for winning his first Emmy, but he beat out Matt Bomer and Joe Mantello from The Normal Heart. I guess vote splitting worked out for Freeman. Jessica Lange won her second American Horror Story Emmy award.

Oh! And The Amazing Race won another Emmy! WOW! SO DIVERSE!

So disappointed in the Emmy’s this year. They need to get in touch with reality.
