    I watched Breaking Bad instead. The Emmys this year were a joke of an awards show which made Teen Choice Awards look more respectable.

    I only liked it when Breaking Bad won their awards. All other winners were a joke, especially Jim Parson. L

    It was a good telecast and the memoriam segments were well done.

    I really liked the show, but, the special tributes to a few select people, generated too many complaints about who was included and who was excluded.

    Next year just show photographs and films of the departed and treat them all as equally as possible.

    I really liked the fact that there were more fresh faces and programs winning this year than last. It’s wasn’t just the same people winning over and over again. There were a few repeat winners, but, there were a lot of people and shows winning their first Emmy award ever.

    One the best Emmy award shows in several years.
