Emmys 2015 Winners

So yesterday Emmy Awards honored the best in U.S. prime time television programming. Here are some of the winners with my comments.

Andy Samberg hosted the show for the first time. He did ok but I can easily name host that did it much better, e.g. Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris and Ellen. Other than that, like always, the show was fast paced. I miss more and more things about the show. The clips from tv shows, some kind of tribute to old tv shows and I really believe tv series that are not nominated should be also included! We can all agree that we love tv series for different reasons and some are not even close to be critically acclaimed but so what? We love them! And some are really good despite that are not nominated... I think Emmys lost a lot of heart and soul.

This year my heart was not beating faster in many categories but I was so happy for Richard Jenkins! I'm his fan for a while but I feel his work is overlooked many times. So this was a big surprise! Yeeeey! And we can agree that Viola Davis had the most powerful beautiful speech: click.
And I totally missed Houdini mini series! Aaaa! Need to watch it!
On the down-side. I was a bit sad for Modern Family and Ty Burrell. Hope the good luck will be beack next year! And I love Jon Stewart but I would be even more happy for Jimmy Kimmel...
I know many people were very pleased that Jon Hamm and Game of Thrones finally won. As a big Breaking Bad fan I will say - that's what happens when the best tv show is not on TV anymore. Otherwise both would be empty handed again :P With all jokes aside, I think they deserve it and CONGRATS to all the winners!
