I was quite disappointed that no one at TV Fanatic reviewed Sherlock season 3. Maybe 3 emmys will reignite one of your reviewers interest?

American Horror Story sucked this year.

I am glad that the Normal Heart won. Personally I wish Matt Bomer and Mark Ruffalo would have won in their categories. I do not watch Sherlock and I am sure that Benedict and Martin were both great but they were not my choice.
I was happy that Aaron Paul won.
I knew Anna Gunn, Breaking Bad and Modern Family would win.
I like Bryan Cranston and Breaking Bad, but I think Matthew should have won. As well as True Detective.

As you haven´t seen them, of course you don´t know how great they were in His last vow. I recommend Sherlock to you. (I love Alex O. he is sooo good!)
I wish The normal heart was releashed everywhere. It looks like only US is enjoying the film, so I can´t say if MB and MR should have won or not)

Who is Bryan Craston to be treated differently? He is no better tan the other winners, so I think it wasn´t deserved. And I am so glad Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman won! Matt Boomer is just an OK actor, not nearly as good as Cumberbatch.

Did you notice - Bryan Cranston could talk as long as he wanted, and no one was going to "piano" him off of the stage. Everyone else couldn't come close to his time without the music starting to play. I thought that was correct, by the way. Totally right: Cranston deserved as much time as he wanted. The Robin Williams tribute blew me away.
