Off to the Emmys

Spain
Flying off to Hollywood in a few hours for the Emmy Awards.

Last week GAME OF THRONES won an Emmy for Best Main Title.

And Sunday, at the televised portion of the awards, we're up for four more. David Benioff and Dan Weiss for writing ('Baelor'), Tim Van Patten for directing ('Winter Is Coming'), Peter Dinklage for Best Supporting Actor, and... the big one... Best Dramatic Series. Where we will be contending against three-time winner MAD MEN, HBO's other big new series BOARDWALK EMPIRE, the old line on-line network contender THE GOOD WIFE, Showtime's DEXTER, and the fine high school football drama FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. Tough competition.

I'd ask you all to wish us luck, but in show biz the preferred wish is "break a leg." So let's hope we shatter four legs to splinters come Sunday night.

See you on the red carpet.

Re: Emmies
Due to when the current season started Breaking Bad wasn't eligible this year, but will pop up next year and win a bunch of awards like usual.

The Tyrion and Bronn scenes alone should guarantee him an Emmy, if not Shagga son of Dolf will starting chopping off manhoods until Peter gets what he deserves!

Not eligible.
Breaking Bad was not eligible this year, since it didn't air any show during the evaluated period.

P.S. Shout out to G. from Brazil.

Instead of "break a leg", Italians say, "In bocc' al lupo" -- "into the wolf's mouth". More appropriate, I feel :)

Brilliant. I'll go with that one as well, right down the Diewolf's throat.

You'll walk away with a few bones fractured, I'm quite sure of it.

I'm sure Mr. Dinklage has got this one, given how the Academy snubbed who would've been his biggest competition this year, John Noble from 'Fringe'. If our Tyrion's not a lock, then there's seriously no justice left in these awards.

But Scorcese's an Academy giant though, so break a leg going up against his beast!

You'll be in my neck of the woods! Here's to hoping this humble fan can somehow blunder into your path and buy you a drink! Otherwise, good luck at the Emmys!

I concur with Paedar I offer whatever salutions that will not bring ill luck to your endeavors.

Hope y'all have a great time! I'm afraid your competition is even tougher due to the cancellation of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, which might make it the sentimental favorite. Crossing all extremities for you and hoping you break at least one :->

Since the performances are already over I won't say 'break a leg.' Instead, Good Luck. You and the show are deserving of the nomination and I hope the Emmy for Best Dramatic Series.

Good luck!
