Breaking Bad and Giants
We used to write emails back and forth MANY years ago, so I just wanted to thank you now for your kindness back then. I know you're a much busier man now.
Regarding the Emmys, I kind of figured that Breaking Bad would win, though I wonder how much of it was driven by previous and current success. I thought the season that was represented in the Emmy's (not the current season) was actually the weakest, though I am loving the current one again. To be sure, it is a great show. At least you didn't lose to something shallow and mindless.
And regarding your Giants, do you think it might be time for a coaching change? I do think the Giants got a little lucky for at least one of the last super bowls. I know that luck is always a part of winning, but really, they got hot at the right time. I give them credit for doing so, but it is hard to sustain that kind of winning.

Martin Scorsese didn't get the best director Oscar until 2007.... The moral of that story is: Critics, they know nothing. Viewing figures tell it all :)

Re: Critics....
Critics don't vote for the Oscars, it's all people who work in the industry. Not sure if it's the same for the Emmys

Very happy with the Jets, but seriously, the Giants...? Poor Eli. Really glad I didn't watch that game.

Was pretty pleased with Chicago, though...well, anytime I see Rothlisberger skulk off the field I'm happy.

Nikolaj better win one day for his portrayal of Jaime and of course GOT will win for best show eventually.

It isn't over.
If Winds of Winter and Dream of Spring end up being amazing and the show can execute well on that in the end, I would think you'd have a pretty good chance of winning, especially considering how many good shows are ending soon. Whether there'll be better ones to replace them is not clear.

Unlike the Giants, Game of Thrones is pure quality. So she didn't win the beauty contest. She's still the best gal in the room.

Emilia Clarke was better than Anna Gunn last season.
I'll start this off by saying Anna Gunn was great last season. Even better this season, which should be the season Breaking Bad wins big and for the last time.

But that is for next years award shows. This was supposed to be the season for Game of Thrones, and in the hearts of the fans I believe it still is. I just think Emilia had a better performance than Anna last season. It was great to see Emilia at least present an award though.

I'm a fan of all six shows that were up for the big drama award of the night. That again is Breaking Bad's award to win next season, but not for last season. But I digress....

But as for me much like you being a fan of Big Blue, I'm eagles fan and there still seems to be hope in our terrible NFC East.

Come north!
You should try watching some CFL games. It's an eight team league, and the talent level is lower than the NFL, the field is a different size, there are fewer downs, and we have the rouge. It isn't as dazzling as the NFL but it's an honest game of football.

My BC Lions beat the Saskatchewan Roughriders on the final play of the game as time ran down to zeros with a field goal to come from behind and win 24-22. A thrilling conclusion to a very hard fought game. An added advantage to watching the CFL is that Belichick and Brady don't ever play up here.

my condolences
Sorry about Sunday and the Giants huge loss. My 49ers got crushed too. I did not think GoT would lose at the Emmy's either.

No Awards for Ripping People's Hearts Out, only Satisfaction.
Sorry dude. I was watching Talking bad and heard that they won the Emmy. The girl next to me was like HA! as I was expecting Game of Thrones to totally take it.

But then I learned none at all? And during the season of the Red Wedding?!!!!

My belief is that it affected the people voting on it so much they refused to give GoT an Emmy out of pure unadulterated spite.

This just proves how deeply it affects people.

I do believe that in the entire history of the known and unknown universe that those last five words have never been uttered by anybody when discussing football. The G-men need a full-on rebuild at this point, from the GM on down. Sideshow Rex seems to have the Big Green Mess somewhat under control and playing with a modicum of discipline, and Geno's not looking bad either.

As for the Emmys, sadly it was predictable given the disdain for genre works from the elites in their ivory towers. You waz robbed!

Sorry about the Emmy snubs. Not so much about the Giants. The Bears are going to violate them in a few weeks anyway.

They'll get what they deserve!

It's a real shame about the emmys, it was the best chance to get the best drama award. Next year it's gonna be Breaking Bad again :(

Re: Valar Morghulis
Saying it was the best chance to win is basically saying that you don't believe any future material from the series is going to top that based on A Storm of Swords. I'll keep thinking the best is still to come until proven otherwise. George said he thought this year was the best chance too, but he has enough pressure on his writing as it is.
