    I am obsessed with VEEP. Have seen every episode multiple times. Happy to see it recognized.

    I agree, based on awards so far, GoT seems like the new front runner.

    They kept the show pretty tight, will wrap it up in three hours.

    I'll probably have to get an HBO Now subscription eventually.

    I just don't know if I can ever get into Games of Thrones.

    I'm not surprised Game of Thrones finally won a Best Dramatic Series Emmy. It's a pretty good show, considering the production costs are estimated at over US$10 million per episode. :eek:

    Although most of the critical commentary has been that last season is the one that should have been nominated.

    I think "travesty" is right, within the context of the thing. Draper is an iconic character and Hamm's performance in the role is equally iconic. He didn't need to win every year or even more than once, but if you're going to do the awards at all, Hamm had to get one.

    A number of critics are saying Jon Hamm's win is essentially a makeup award by Emmy voters for the fact Hamm lost three times to Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad. It reminds me so much of how AMPAS voters voted Jimmy Stewart the Best Actor Oscar for The Philadelphia Story 75 years ago as a makeup for Stewart losing to Robert Donat a year earlier.

    ..agreed! And how great that Tina Fey got to give him the award! :D:D

    I loved how he - um - took the stage...hilarious! He has such a flair for comedy!

    On another note-I love me some Peter Dinklage, but even he had to give major props to Jonathan Banks...talk about a travesty!

    Except the Academy isn't a monolithic thing where that kind of thing can happen as though by fiat. And anyway, the voting rules changed this year, making conclusions about why things happened, and especially any comparisons to past years, difficult.

    My biggest surprise was the Andy Samberg was actually a GOOD host.

    I think Veep is great but I don't think it was the winner this year.

    Lisa Kudrow should have gotten it for Best Actress in a Comedy and Tatiana should have gotten Best Actress as a make up to HER for not being nominated the first season.

    I will join in the sentiment that Jon Hamm deserved a win.
    16 Emmy nominations over all (not just for Mad Men) he was turning into Susan Lucci.

    Better Veep than Modern Family

    I watched some of Veep. The first season. And I think the first few episodes of season 2. Then I just stopped requesting the discs from Netflix. Can't really explain why. I DID like what I saw. It was pretty funny. JLD was great in it. So was Tony Hale. But I guess I lost interest.

    Speaking of which, will the rest of you please log off of Samberg's account? I'm trying to catch up on Veep, but Amazon Prime has only the first season for free, and HBO Go keeps telling me that it's on the maximum number of logins for the account...

    Oh, and I am assuming the green ribbons were for transgender awareness/support, but you would think at least one of the winners who mentioned transgender in their speeches would have mentioned this.

    That actually seems pretty typical Hollywood to just expect that everyone knows what the cause célèbre is rather than explain it.

    Put me down on the other side. I thought he was awful. Most of his jokes fell flat, no one in the audience laughing, but he just kept grinning for a few beats then tried another lame joke.

    I thought the whole show as a bust, way too many awards. I was happy when I noted that Bill Murray wasn't in the audience (just a photo in the run up to the big reveal) so then when he won there was just the "Bill was unable to be here tonight..." He was smart enough to stay in Chicago at the Western Open BMW thing.

    I had to google the green ribbons. Apparently... Climate Change...

    Sunday night's green ribbons, stamped with the the hashtag #DemandClimateAction, are tied to a petition written by the National Resources Defense Council. It calls for world leaders attending the U.N. Climate Change Conference in December to take swift and decisive actions to fight climate change.

    Interesting.

    I too thought they were for Transgender rights. Seems like everyone from Transparent was wearing them, including Jeffrey Tambor who made a plea for Transgender rights. I don't recall many other winners wearing them and making statements about climate change.
