Breaking Bad

Television’s big night out, the The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards Awards, were last night, and I didn’t actually watch it because (A) I had a class from six to nine, and then (B) the BF and I decided to watch Wrath Of Kahn instead of the final leg of the Emmys. Apparently, I wasn’t missing much, but that’s neither here nor there. The important part is that we get to discuss which rich people got trophies and which ones didn’t and why that’s great/terrible. So here’s the full list of winners via HuffPo

Kind of sad that 30 Rock only got one award, despite the fact that this was their last year in the running, but at least Tina Fey got a final shoutout on her writing. Also a pleasant surprise: The Colbert Report breaking The Daily Show‘s decade-long streak. I loves me some Jon Stewart, but The Colbert Report had a great season and their recognition was long overdue.
