With the 66th Primetime Emmys only days away, Gold Derby Editors Rob Licuria, Matt Noble and Charles Bright joined me for a live Best Drama Series slugfest on the Gold Derby home page. We asked for input from our savvy Gold Derby users and read many of your comments and questions live on air. (Watch the slugfest below.) -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube While we all agree that "Breaking Bad" is the frontrunner (and has been all year), our second-place choices are all across the board. Some of us say "Game of Thrones" is the spoiler, others champion "True Detective," while some think it's "House of Cards." Unfortunately that means "Mad Men" and "Downton Abbey" don't factor much in our discussion for who's out front to win. We also took a moment to recognize the races for Best Drama Directing and Best Drama. »
Aaron Paul will be returning to TV, but next time he'll be the boss. The “Breaking Bad” actor has inked a first look deal with Sony Pictures Television, a studio representative told TheWrap. Also read: ‘Game of Thrones’ Upsets ‘Breaking Bad?’ Facebook Reveals Emmy Winners The projects will be produced through his newly formed production company, Lucid Road Productions. In making the deal, Paul is sticking with a company that he knows fairly well. Sony Pictures TV produced “Breaking Bad.” It also has an overall deal with “Breaking Bad” creator Vince Gilligan and a first look deal with co-star Bryan Cranston. »

Ok, there are probably a lot of good shows on TV that you’re not watching and that deserve attention, but for me, personally, if I have to vouch for one recent favorite, it’s AMC’s ‘80s-set computer company drama “Halt And Catch Fire.” I accept that my taste is not really in line with most critics when it comes to the realms of television (and possibly even fellow Playlisters, too). I don’t think “Homeland” betrayed itself in the third season like many have suggested (I'd argue “House Of Cards” did that with it’s straining-the-suspension-of-disbelief, shark-jumping writing), I like the character-driven “Boardwalk Empire” a lot (a show that many critics seem to have abandoned despite one of the bests casts on TV) and I feel like “Breaking Bad” was always a tad overrated (and if this is where I lose you, fair enough). I never made it »

The world of prestige TV is not a safe one for children. When people aren't being eaten by dragons, they're getting pushed in front of subway cars or murdered in other dangerous ways. What's one way to make these shows more kid-friendly? Remake them with actual kids, of course! In anticipation for Monday night's Emmy Awards, the folks over at mom.me decided to rework the six shows nominated in the Best Drama category with adorable tykes.

Because it's NBC's turn to air the Primetime Emmy Awards this year, and because the Peacock would understandably rather air its lucrative Sunday night NFL package in September, the ceremony will take place in late August again. And as an added wrinkle, this year's ceremony will actually happen on a Monday, August 25 at 8 p.m., with Seth Meyers hosting. Between now and then, Dan and I will be making our picks for both who should and will win many of the major categories — if you're wagering, keep in mind that Dan tends to be much better at predicting the winners than I am, but also that he was just as flummoxed as I by last year's winners like Jeff Daniels, Merritt Wever and Bobby Cannavale — concluding with our predictions for Outstanding Drama Series. Outstanding Drama Series "Breaking Bad" (AMC) "Downton Abbey" (PBS) "Game of Thrones" (HBO) "House of Cards" (Netflix »

Our Gold Derby experts, editors, and users are nearing their final predictions in all the Emmy races for Monday's ceremony. Who are the frontrunners and spoilers in many of the key races? -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube Our new photo gallery at the bottom of this post takes a look at the top two candidates in each of 16 major races.

But what about the more closely contested races like these?

AMC's Breaking Bad went out on a high note last year, with record ratings and love from critics and fans alike. The show is up for 16 Emmys, and could win a second consecutive outstanding drama award, which THR's experts say the show should and will win. Here, we look at ten ways the show's final eight episodes rocked the TV landscape. "Tread lightly," from "Blood Money" Forget cat and mouse. This was war. Breaking Bad wasted no time cutting to the chase, with Hank (Dean Norris) and Walt (Bryan Cranston) having a showdown in the first episode.

As part of our Primetime Emmy Awards coverage Monday evening, I will do a live blog during the event with Sons Of Anarchy creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter. To me, Sons is the most accomplished and ambitious long-running series to be ignored by Emmy voters, save for a couple song nominations. Sons is a Shakespearean tale that to my mind has produced some of the most shocking moments and richest character development of any series to come along during this cable series golden age. Perhaps the series has been marginalized by voters because the empire is a motorcycle club dealing in illegal firearms, drugs and violence. But some of the most lauded series take place in unsavory settings, from The Sopranos and organized crime to Boardwalk Empire and Prohibition Era bootlegging, to Breaking Bad and the production of methamphetamine. As Sutter and Sons rev toward their seventh and final season, »

HBO programming head Michael Lombardo can’t stop talking about the upcoming season of True Detective, though we don’t have even so much as an official casting announcement from the network. With the first season going up against Emmy heavyweight Breaking Bad, which has the nostalgia vote boosting its already stellar chances at this year’s awards, True Detective likely needs all the buzz it can get – so Lombardo is likely doing anything he can to keep the good press coming.
Included in his recent discussion about the acclaimed detective series have been some interesting comments about season 2, which will arrive on HBO next year and is again written by series creator Nic Pizzolatto. At the Edinburgh TV Festival, Lombardo confirmed some details about the upcoming season, stating:
“We’re going to start shooting in September for it to air next summer. [It has] different characters, a different setting. It’s set in California, »

According to our racetrack odds, which are based on the combined predictions of Gold Derby Experts, Editors, Top 24 Users, and All Users, HBO's telefilm "The Normal Heart" will be the top winner during Monday night's Primetime Emmys telecast with five wins. -Break- For our complete predictions by category, click here. 5 reasons why 'Breaking Bad' will win Best Drama Series at Emmys Set during the early years of the AIDS outbreak in New York City, "Normal Heart" is the frontrunner to win Best TV Movie, Best Movie/Mini Writing for famed playwright and activist Larry Kramer, Best Movie/Mini Directing for TV vet Ryan Murphy, and supporting awards for Julia Roberts and Matt Bomer.

Moira Walley-Beckett devastated Breaking Bad fans last year with "Ozymandias," the episode that saw years' worth of storytelling come crashing together. Her script featured deaths, broken relationships and shocking revelations. It earned her an Emmy nomination for penning what is widely considered the series' best episode. Walley-Becket, who is wrapping up filming on her upcoming Starz drama Flesh and Bone this week, goes up against Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan in the drama writing category at Monday's Emmys, where Gilligan is nominated for penning the show's series finale. Vince Gilligan and most fans agree this was the best

True Detective is a really great show and may very well be the future of where television is headed but you cant dethrone the best show ever made.
Orange is the New Black, for all its issues, is uniquely female-centered, and it gives groups of women and women of color on-screen time. Its sympathetic and complicated. »

With the 66th Primetime Emmys only days away, Gold Derby senior editors Marcus James Dixon and Daniel Montgomery battled it out mano-a-mano style in all 26 Emmy categories for your enjoyment. (Watch the slugfest below.) -Break- Follow Gold Derby on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, iTunes and YouTube Sure, there were times when Daniel and I agreed, like in the program races where we declared "Breaking Bad" and "Modern Family" the frontrunners. But we really duked it during the Julia Louis-Dreyfus ("Veep") vs. Melissa McCarthy ("Mike and Molly") debate, the Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones") vs. Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad") discussion and "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" vs. "Colbert Report" argument.

Remember last year's Emmys, when "Nurse Jackie" co-star Merritt Wever won a stunning upset victory in the supporting actress category and delivered a flustered but delightfully human speech that lasted about 12 seconds? That's the sort of moment that Emmy viewers pray for, when spontaneity and real emotion break through the otherwise canned, tightly scripted ritual of a televised awards ceremony.
Turns out Emmycast producer Don Mischer prays for such moments as well. As he said in a recent Variety interview, such surprises drive Twitter traffic, which in turn drives viewership.
Of course, the problem with depending on such moments is that you can't plan them. All you can do is make room for them to happen. For the rest of the August 25 show, however, here's what you can expect to see, courtesy of Mischer and Emmy emcee Seth Meyers.
