Breaking Bad. Game of Thrones. House of Cards. True Detective. There’s a reason these shows are Emmy-nominated this year for best writing in a drama series. The writers are the best in the business. Check out the insider secrets and expert opinions from three out of four of the nominated shows’ writing teams in THE WRITERS’ ROOM video clips.
So the Emmys happened on Sunday night and I watched it right until Mad Men at 10 pm. NY Magazine’s Vulture blog had a nice round-up of the show’s highlights and lowlights with a headline asking “Were these the best Emmys ever?” (no), as well as the attendees’ sartorial selections. Side note: My favorite observation of the show was by my friend Ayo with whom I was watching the show in his apartment. Ayo asked, “Has anyone seen a photo of Betty White when she was younger? I bet she was hot. I’d get after it.”
