Apart from the weird yet hilarious way hosting a show by Jimmy Kennel, this year’s Emmy’s may also create history in a way. After emerging victorious in the past four years at the Emmy’s, this year also chances are that “Mad Men” may once again win the title and achieve a never before feat.
“Mad Men” is going to be the first drama series to sweep away five consecutive awards in the Best Drama Category. Competiton that may come in the way of “Mad Men” achieving this year’s honors are “Homeland” of Showtime and “Breaking Bad” of AMC itself.
The miniseries from last year, “Downton Abbey” and other HBO drama series like “Boardwalk Empire” and “Game of Thrones” are going to present their challenge this year in the best drama category of the Emmy’s.
Last year “Mad Men” was the most nominated show with 19 nominations to its credit and this year the show is going to stake its claim at the Emmy with 17 nominations. However in the category the show couldn’t get a single statuette to its glory for the acting but the nomination for John Hamm’s role as ad executive Don Draper for a fifth time may change it forever.
Bryan Cranston of the “Breaking Bad” has been taking away the acting honor at the awards ceremony for past three years, has also been nominated this year as well. John Hamm however is not the only actor that has been nominated for all these years and yet couldn’t get an award. Michael C. Hall was also nominated all these years for his lead role in “Dexter” at Showtime. Steve Buscemi of “Boardwalk Empire”, Hugh Bonneville of “Downton Abbey” and Damian Lewis of “Homeland” are also in run for the honors.
I wish all drama series cast and crew the best that are taking part at this year’s Emmy. Also, I would like to say to all those who couldn’t win despite a putting up great effort that you all shall stay forever in the hearts of your fans, so don’t be disappointed.
