Well... isn't that special! Why not just change the title of the award to the premium cable channel award?

Although I subscribe to all of the premium cable channels... the concept that only they have excellent quality of shows or acting is a joke. And do Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have pictures of the nominating committee doing unnatural acts with a non-consenting farm animals in order to get nominated as "actresses"?

Saturday Night Live up for awards? What? They really STINK once again. I kept watching this past season just to see if a funny skit was actually going to happen. The new cast, ummm....zzzzzz. Painful.

SNL is absolutely not funnn at all. Producers seem to based things on "sex" all the time. I too stuck with the show hoping for some "funniness", but it didn't happen. New cast - no good.

Agreed. They jumped the shark over 20 years ago. Does anyone really watch that show anymore?

Once again "The Walking Dead" has been snubbed. I guess Hollywood really has no appreciation of anything original.

Breaking Bad deserves to win, and Bryan Cranston for best actor. One of the best series in a long time. And to think it was not on a "pay" channel!

TONY Hello Beautiful July 10 2014 at 12:46 PM

Breaking Bad does not deserve to win , it should not even be up for an award this year because the show ended last season . That makes no sense at all for a show that ended last year to be up for an award this year . Ridiculous .

Breaking Bad is probably the best drama show ever. It got better with every season, & a couple of the episodes were UNBELIEVABLE! Excellent writing, excellent casting, excellent acting all around.
