How the Emmy Nominations Should Have Gone

So the time has come. The Emmys are nearing and as always, there is always controversy regarding who they choose to nominate. And this year isn’t any different. I don’t claim to know everything about television, because I don’t watch nearly all of the shows out there. But, i do know amazing acting and programming when I see it. So, yes, I did have a few issues with the nominations this year. They nominated past winners and nominees that just don’t deserve it this year. They completely overlook individuals and shows that put out material that screams award recognition. But they didn’t get it. So below is my list for who should have been nominated. It is formatted the same as most other sites and you may disagree with me completely and that is okay. But this is my take and who I believe deserves it. So you will see Downton Abbey completely gone from my list. Not that I don’t think its worthy, but because I have never seen it and can’t put it above things I have seen and think deserve it. You will also see some of the categories being completely identical because they either got it right, or I didn’t see enough to add or remove nominees. So with that being said, take a look at who I think should have been nominated below and share your thoughts if you feel the need to. Continue reading

True Detective Season One Finale — TV EPISODE REVIEW

The best new show on television, “True Detective”

Give that man all of the Emmy Awards that you have! Holy cow, such good acting in this episode. Its nothing new with this show. Every episode, these two guys kill it. This episode had all of the set up from last week so it didn’t take much for it to get going this week. And once again, the episode was damn good. I was worried about this episode last week though. For one, I didn’t think the “lawnmower man” was a very strong villain. And I was worried because I honestly had absolutely no idea where these two characters were going to take us. What a journey this show was. Continue reading

True Detective Episode 7 Review — “After You’ve Gone”

td_7_rust_marty.jpg.CROP.promovar-mediumlarge

“My whole life is this expanding circular fuck-up and I’m about to get clipped in a home invasion. What I’m saying is, I was aware that I might have lost my mind.” I swear I could go episode-by-episode and just pull out these amazing lines, mostly said by McConaughey’s Rust Cohle. The writing is just spectacular. The dialogue blows me away week after week.  Continue reading

True Detective — Does it Live Up to the Hype?

true
There is no denying the appeal of True Detective. It stars two brilliant leads in the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. And they don’t disappoint. They both do things acting-wise that I didn’t even know they could do. Yes, I know McConaughey has hit a stride of amazing roles these past couple years. It all started with The Lincoln Lawyer. Then he landed great roles in films like Dallas Buyers Club, Mud, Killer Joe, and now this True Detective show. For so many years, I was used to McConaughey the “rom-com-King”. So many years went by where he did just horrible movies. They were all mostly romantic comedies, but this became his image. He was the guy from The Wedding Planner or How to Lose a guy in 10 Days. Luckily, I forgot he even did Fool’s Gold. But he has really turned his career around, picking some truly amazing roles. This HBO show is going to get some Emmy love when the time comes, there is no doubt in my mind about that. But how much love will it get? Continue reading
