If We Picked the Emmy Winners

The Emmy Awards were handed out a couple of days ago, some went the way we thought they would, some others didn’t. Here’s what we would have voted for in a few of the categories:

Supporting actor & actress in a comedy– Eric Stonestreet & Julie Bowen are really the best of Modern Family
Lead actress in a comedy – Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Yes, great choice!
Lead actor in a comedy – John Cryer??? It’s a good thing Louis C.K. won two other Emmys, but he really should have won this too.
Supporting actress in a drama – Downton Abbey is awesome, but I would have voted for Anna Gunn in Breaking Bad (anyone shocked?)
Supporting actor in a drama – Aaron Paul, I would have also been very happy with Giancarlo Esposito! Can’t they give a second award?
Lead actor & actress in a drama – Homeland was amazing. I’m happy with the winners, but Bryan Cranston & Elisabeth Moss would have been great as well.
Drama series – I’m happy that Homeland broke Mad Men’s streak, but I would have preferred Breaking Bad
Comedy series – Weren’t the streaks supposed to end? I saw a couple of episodes of Girls & Veep, but I loved Curb Your Enthusiasm, so I would have to give them the win.

Claire Danes--big fat YES
Damian Lewis yes, but . . . Bryan Cranston. He's won before, hasn't he?
Homeland--yes! But BB I'm predicting should get it next year. Screw Mad Men, which I've never watched, so of course I'm just kidding. But BB hasn't won best drama, has it?
Writing for Homeland--yes
Aaron Paul--yes, but he has a chance next year. Giancarlo Esposito was amazing as Gus and no more chance for that role. If Peter Dinklage had not won last year, I would have been pissed that he didn't win now.
