 I think you mean you COULDN'T care less. If you could care less, then you care to some degree and it could be reduced.

 I was quite shocked but very happening when Cumberbatch, Freeman and Moffat all took home Emmy's.  It's a fantastic show and Moffat was correct, Mark Gratis should've been up there with him.  In all honesty I think Mark is the real brains behind the show.  Moffat's writing is hit or miss with me.  He did some great Who episodes under Russell T. Davies tenure including Blink and The Empty Child, but I've been less than impressed overall with Doctor Who since he took over control of the series.  There's been good episodes here and there, but it's been fairly uneven.

And Weird Al's song for Game of Thrones was probably the highlight of the night for me next to Billy Crystal's tribute to Robin Williams and the back and forth between Julia Lousie Dreyfuss and Brian Cranston.  

McConaughey was robbed for Lead Actor.  True Detective was amazing as was his performance.  While his films stuff last year was very solid, I think the buzz around True Detective which was airing this passed winter was the main reason he won the Golden Globe and the Oscar.

 Worst hosted and produced awards show of all time. HORRIBLE. 

RobertTrate 8/26/2014 1:45:37 PM

 Sorry doublerdiner, long night of no sleep. FIXED. 

FerretJohn 8/26/2014 4:38:51 PM

ahh Tyrion, he got no justice at his trial and he got no justice at the Emmy's.  Dinklage should've won Best Supporting

almostunbiased 8/26/2014 4:43:36 PM

Sherlock is the most brilliant show on television, but game of thrones s right up there.  I hink if Breaking Bad wouldn't have just ended it might not have won so much. 

almostunbiased 8/26/2014 4:48:11 PM

Oh and I like Weird Al, and I usually like crap liek he did, but thatw as lame.

redhairs99 8/27/2014 9:30:20 AM

 Yeah, I agree that Breaking Bad ending is the main reason it took home several awards including for Lead and Supporting Actor.

I just had a bad feeling they were going to give everything to The Normal Heart. Glad I was wrong
