Emmys Announced – Good Year For Downton and Sherlock

Standard

Sherlock and Downton Abbey were both nominated in the top categories for this years Emmy Awards. Benedict Cumberbatch of Sherlock as well as  Hugh Bonneville and Michelle Dockery of Downton Abbey were all nominated for awards.

What surprised me the most is that there were no broadcast network dramas nominated with the exception of Downton Abbey which is on PBS.

I was pleased to see Big Bang Theory and Modern Family both nominated for Best Comedy. Only one of the dramas nominated I watch is Downton Abbey. 

Betty White at 90 years strong was nominated for Best Reality Show host. I would love to see Tom Bergeron and Dancing with the Stars pick up emmys this year.

I am glad that Hatfields and McCoys was nominated for Best Mini Series along with Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton were nominated for Best Actor in a Mini Series.

The Emmy’s are a bigger deal to me than the Oscar’s because I watch more TV than I see movies. It will be interesting to see who wins.

“Sherlock” is Amazing. We are watching the first series of this BBC show on Blu Ray and its quite good. Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are brilliant. Of course Steven Moffatt, Sue Vertue and Mark Gattis bring their great writing and producing talents to this show. It is a visually stunning piece of TV. Quite good TV too.
