    Cool, I need to catch up on a few Louie episodes.

  • Christian

    Jessica Lange is a goddess but that Emmy belongs to Laura Linney for The Big C: Hereafter. C’mon, academy, vote for the performance and not the name!

  • John Doe

    They should do the same for The Americans even if it didn’t get any major noms

  • David

    Sarah Paulson was AMAZING as Lana Winters!

  • Dan

    I’m DVRing those Louie episodes, god only knows when the third season will show up on Netflix.
