“The nominees should really be thankful that Helen Mirren isn’t nominated this year. (Claire Danes 2011)”
The Emmy nominations are in so it is time to let the speculating begin. If I look at the list of ( mini) series nominated I can say one thing. Modern Family will win at least 1 award. But seriuosly, it is funny. When I first saw it I was like… this is one weird combination of people only to find out there family. Ed O’Neil as head of the family and Ty Burrel as Phil Dunphy, the guy is hilarious. Trying to keep up with all the modern technology, buzzwords and is clueless:
“Phil Dunphy: If you show enough houses, you learn all the tricks. Every realtor is just a ninja with a blazer. The average burglar breaks in and leaves clues everywhere, but not me. I’m completely clueless.”
Besides Phil, Gloria (Sofía Vergara who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series) is great. Her accent is ever so funny. But you have to see that for yourself, I can explain it. From all the nominees in this catagory I think she is the one that will be going home with the award.
Outstanding Comedy Series Nominees: To be honest. I have only seen The Big Bang and Modern Family so I have no idea what the other show are like but if I have to choose between these 2.. Big Bang is my personal favorite. Strong cast, great writing, and well see for yourself.
Outstanding Drama Series Nominees:
“Game of Thrones”
This is going to be a though catagory. All the series in here are great which makes it hard for the jury I think. From all these only Breaking Bad is starting to falter, which is a shame cause it started out good. But if I have to pick a winner I would choose between Game of Thrones and Downton Abby. Bot aired for 2 seasons and in both the sorylines and lead characters evolved. Downton Abby is a series which sets just before and during WW1. The characters are protrayed in such a way, that you as viewer, wish you could intervene. To me tis is what make a show great. That you start to get empahy for the characters.
This is also the feeling I get when watching Game of Thrones ( I wish I could wring Joffery’s neck myself). Game of Thrones is a whole different serries. You either like it or not. It can be described in just one single word: Epic! The two differ so much that they should not be in the same catagory, but this goes for all the shows in this catagory. Mad Men, too, is great! But there can only be one winner. My guess: Downton Abby and Peter Dinkelage will hopefully win the award for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series”. He won last year, but he should win it again. Why? His character, funny, strong, protraits power and humility ( when its suits him ).
I could work down the whole list of nominees bot than the item would be very very long:).. For futher info on the Emmy’s check out IMDB.
