It was an interesting show, mostly, but I watched to see Neil Patrick Harris and the "In Memorium" slides. I have never seen at least eighty percent of the shows nominated or which won awards, because I do not have cable, I cannot afford cable, and I will not be getting cable. And I am not the only person in this situation. This show is officially irrelevant, for me.

I agree with Barb. One show for cable and one for network.

So disappointed that NCIS did not win any awards. I think it is the best drama on TV.

You are kidding right? A lot of people don't have pay per view station...this is a joke! Just like everything else in this country.

It was a tough show to watch. Shown on a network station and yet the cable shows out won the network shows. There's so many wonderful shows on the regular networks that a lot of people watch faithfully and yet the cable shows were mostly nominated. I also felt that there were too many nominees in each category. I think perhaps the time has come to have two separate award shows- one for cable and one for network.

Outstanding Comedy Series: Breaking Bad Er, did you mean "Outstanding Drama Series: Breaking Bad" or was that one of your sarcastic jokes a la Neil Patrick Harris? :-)

May want to check your article for errors. I doubt Breaking Bad won Outstanding Comedy Series.
