Where tvDownload’s Drew and Vinnie discuss their picks for this year’s Emmys!
Josh Charles, The Good Wife
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Mandy Patinkin, Homeland
Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad
Jon Voight, Ray Donovan
Joanna Froggatt, Downton Abbey
Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey
Lena Headey, Game of Thrones
Christine Baranski, The Good Wife
Vinnie: Homeland is one of those dark holes in my TV watching schedule where I tell everyone “I knowww I totally need to watch that,” but I’m not going to. Nope. But I do have a secret, undying passion for the Princess Bride, so maybe Patinkin solely based on that?
Fine, I’ll go by performances I ACTUALLY WATCHED. Lame. My gut wants to say Aaron Paul, because god he was just perfect for five straight seasons. But this last season his performance basically called for different shades of “NOOOOO.” I mean, he did an AMAZING job at portraying total despair, but just sadness an Emmy does not get (did that make sense?). But there was that amazing last second of elation during the finale. You know, this one?
Now Best Supporting Actress? Joanna Froggatt and
Professor McGonagall Maggie Smith are out in my book, mostly because I am so anti-Downton Abbey and how dare they get two chances to win.
Also Addams Family Values:
Wait but for real, is she nominated for American Dad? *Checks Internet*
THANKS FOR THE LIES, VINNIE! Also I got you something:
IN CLOSING! I almost want to say Barinski, because I imagine her entire demographic is people who love The Good Wife: i.e., women who all look and act exactly like Christine Barinski characters. A veritable Baranski army!
