  • Crap! I wanted Jessica Lange, Boardwalk Empire and Steve Buscemi to win their respective nominations. *Sad face*

  • Breaking bad and Bryan Cranston should have won. I mean I like Homeland but the second season wasn’t as good as their first season and Breaking Bad is just getting better!

    I do agree with Maggie Smith though! She is fabulous!

    • And that’s your opinion, just like I feel bored every time I watch Breaking Bad, and think Girls is a terrible show. I feel like Homeland S2 was not as good as S1 too, but I still feel like its better than Breaking Bad.

  • Breaking Bad has been getting ripped off tonight. They should be winning. Here’s to hoping either Alec or Louis wins for Best Comedy Actor later on.

    • I’m also hoping one of the hosts wins for Beat Comedy Actress! Both great actresses and great shows.

    • It didn’t deserve it. Season 2 was a big step down from season 1.

      • Which still left it far and away the best thing on TV.

        • You need to watch more TV then, because it wasn’t even a top 10 best show this TV season. lol

  • Cable’s award show..hmm. ^.^

    • I was just thinking that. Why was there no love for any network show? I hope that this is not a pre-cursor for the Emmys.

      • It is, sadly. I’m all for cable sharing in the award love, and I do remember when cable TV was relegated to the sidelines and the Cable Ace Awards. However, I think there’s a false notion in Hollywoodland that if it’s on cable (especially one of the “grittier” cable networks) it must be better than anything on broadcast TV. Unfortunate. I watch way too much TV–including cable TV–and I find the most entertaining shows to be on broadcast. On broadcast, in order to be creative, witty and smart, you have to do it without the “brave” choices to air nekkid people, overt sexual content, and swear words. In other words, it’s tougher to be great on broadcast, although a few manage greatness anyway but don’t get rewarded anymore.

      • You really make it appear so straightforward along with your presentation but I locate this topic to be truly some thing which I think I would in no way comprehend. It seems too complex and quite broad for me. I’m seeking forward for your next post, I will attempt to obtain the hang of it!

  • maybe its because I am a guy but i really don’t get the show “girls” i don’t think they should have won compared to big bang theory and modern family. I think that Lena Dunham is talented but not as much as Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Veep is fantastic. can someone explain this to me please?

    Comment by david – January 13, 2013 07:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The HFPA likes edgy shows and loves to honor people before the Emmys do. Personally, I love Girls and was happy to see Lena Dunham win, but I would have been happy with a Julia win as I like Veep a lot as well.

      Comment by Britta Unfiltered – January 13, 2013 08:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Really? From what I’ve seen online, more guys like the show than girls do. However, I have to agree that the HFPA does like to award the new people, which is great. Sometimes the Emmys can go years without acknowledging newcomers, if at all. I mean JLD has a bajillion Emmys. She’ll be fine.

      Comment by Guy – January 13, 2013 08:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m a girl and I totally agree with you. It’s not so much that I dislike the show, but Hannah’s character is so annoying I can’t bare to watch. I do think Lena Dunham is talented though.

      Comment by Girl – January 13, 2013 09:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t understand how the show can be in the comedy category. I watched the entire first season and didn’t laugh once.

      • Seriously, that’s why these awards shows are a joke.

    • I’m a girl and I agree with you. Really dislike Girls. Don’t get the appeal.

    • I agree with you. I thought that The Big Bang Theory deserved the award and that Jim Persons deserved the award for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical tv series!!!!! I am upset!!!! :-(

  • There’s just way better TV shows/Characters on Cable/Premium Cable! I wonder when it was the last time Cable swept the awards? Or is this the first?

    Comment by Wow – January 13, 2013 07:51 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I disagree with the statement that there are better TV shows and characters on cable. There are more messed up, anti-hero characters on cable. Doesn’t make them better or more entertaining, though. Just less like people you actually know in real life.

  • YEAH GIRLS! I’m a guy and I love this show. And I know several other men that enjoy it also.

    • Aw, this was a really good quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and actual effort to create a great post… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to obtain something done.

  • Robbed: Louis C.K., Benedict Cumberbatch, and Mandy Patinkin. Awesome wins: Homeland, Damian Lewis, Claire Danes, Girls, and Lena Dunham. And on the film side of things, I was pretty pleased to see Christoph Waltz win and pretty upset to see Les Mis beat out Moonrise Kingdom (though I totally expected Silver Linings Playbook to be the one to do that). Actually, all Les Mis wins disappointed me. Lincoln underperformed…again. What the heck is going to happen at the Oscars this year? I thought the worst moment of the night was Anne Hathaway interrupting her producer’s acceptance speech because she didn’t get to thank everyone she wanted in her acceptance speech. That was soooo rude. The best moment of the night was Amy Poehler flirting with George Clooney during the best comedy actress category and Tina Fey telling Taylor Swift to stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.

  • Does anyone know what was bleeped or censored out in the middle of Jodie Foster’s speech?

    • I believe it was (at least in part) because she said, “Christ…” when she was asking for/not getting a whoop.

      Comment by Matt Webb Mitovich – January 13, 2013 09:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Breaking Bad was ROBBED. Such a crime that this show hasn’t been recognized yet.

    Comment by Kat – January 13, 2013 08:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Your joking here right? All I used to see the last couple of years is how Breaking Bad won all these awards and is suck a great show. And then I watched it and wondered when it will get interesting. Still hasn’t.

      Comment by Truth – January 14, 2013 06:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Bryan Cranston usually sweeps awards at the Emmys (which is coming to a turning point), but the actual series has not won a major award yet. And are you sure you watched Breaking Bad and not Mad Men, because what?

        Comment by Guy – January 14, 2013 07:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • meh. I think they should separate cable and network. Cable shows are allowed to do so much more. I think it’s not a fair fight. Plus not everyone can watch all the cable/premium shows, they way most people have access to the letter networks. Award shows are lame. BBT wins weekly!

    Comment by Booth_Girl – January 13, 2013 09:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t have cable, so I can’t watch most of the shows that were nominated, and I haven’t seen any of the shows that won. I am surprised network channels still shell out all that money to host these awards shows, since so few network shows are nominated.

      Comment by TVPeong – January 13, 2013 09:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Me too! I haven’t watched half of these shows and why should I have to pay more money to watch them? ugh…

      Comment by Whateva – January 14, 2013 05:02 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The money is different. As you said, BBT wins weekly. Its reward is that it’s going to stay on air for a kabillion years, as long as it continues making that kind of money. Breaking Bad couldn’t even have all the episodes it wanted to finish the series. Unfairness is subjective.

      Comment by Leah – January 14, 2013 02:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Benedict Cumberbatch was ROBBED, seriously, it’s as if the American award shows have some sector loathing for amazing British shows which blow their American counterparts out of the water….sigh

    Comment by TrickGirl – January 13, 2013 09:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Um, the Hollywood FOREIGN Press voted for these awards.

  • I’m just gonna say this… Best moment of the Golden Globes: Anne Hathaway saying this on her speech “The girl who started out as the princess of Genovia”. I teared up.

  • I just can’t with Girls. It’s such a terrible show (in my opinion, of course). I tried to watch it. I tried to like it. I find it grating and annoying. I don’t get why overprivileged, whiny, self-possessed, ambivelent women are supposed to be entertaining. There’s barely a redeeming quality among them, making them unlike any woman I have ever known in any of the four states (red and blue, middle and coast, big city and small city) I have ever lived in. But to each her own.

  • I’m a little surprised at the lack of outcry over the Best Supporting Actor decision. Not that Ed Harris didn’t deserve it — he was eerily fabulous as McCain — but given the lead-up consensus that Patinkin would take it home, it’s odd to hear the crickets this morning.

    Comment by Annie – January 14, 2013 09:09 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • What the eff is people’s fascination with Homeland? It’s not that great. It’s not even really good. The situations on the show are even less realistic /plausible than those depicted on 24, and I don’t remember that show getting award love. I wouldn’t be surprised if next year the big bad are martians, that’s how ridiculous and out of touch the situations depicted on this show truly seem. It’s not like the acting on Homeland is better than on 24 either. You’re going to tell me the ginger and my so called life are better than Kiefer? Hogwash.

  • the fact that the big bang theory was even nominated invalidates all comedy awards but seriously that and smash over community and louie, thats just a massive joke.
    also a joke downton abbey getting a look in for nominations and nothing for sherlock and specifically benedict cumberbatch, i guess because the voters have the attention span of a gnat and sherlock aired this time last year i cant be that shocked.

  • Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!|
