    I think Jon Hamm will never win an Emmy because of what you said above.

    Also, Diana Rigg is a bitch on wheels. Love her on GOT.

    1. Craig Kennedy 4 years ago

      Yes on Diana Rigg. Also, I apparently didn’t get the memo on Jon Hamm packing heat. It’s not enough the guy is ridiculously handsome, talented and funny, he’s also gotta be huge? Not fair.

      1. Clarence 4 years ago

        Go and dig up the WTF Marc Maron podcast he did. It was fantastic, although I go into seizures whenever he bitches about the paparazzi snapping shots of his crotch. Memo to Hamm: if you don’t want your large junk on the internet, then wear some fucking underwear.

        1. Craig Kennedy 4 years ago

          He loves it… he just has to bitch about it so it doesn’t SEEM like he loves it.

  2. Joey 4 years ago

    He’s got a supreme case of Big Dick Face. He has to win sometime.

    1. Craig Kennedy 4 years ago

      I bet he gets one next year.

      1. Joey 4 years ago

        Hamm or his schlong?

  3. Kevin Klawitter
    Kevin Klawitter 4 years ago

    I’m wracking my brain trying to think of where “Hannibal” could possibly show up. Mikkelsen or Dancy for Best Actor would be amazing, but not likely at all. Guest Actor nominations seem most likely: Gillian Anderson, Jeremy Davies, Katherine Isabelle, or Michael Pitt would all be deserving nominees. Direction, too, I guess.

  4. Al Robinson 4 years ago

    Just as long as True Detective in nominated for Best TV Show – Drama, and Fargo for Best Mini Series. Fingers crossed.

  5. Antoinette 4 years ago

    Well the only person I’m bothering to root for tomorrow morning is Pedro Pascal. I don’t watch enough TV to know who is supposed to be nominated and there is so much clutter over at gold derby I get confused and don’t know what to click on so I just leave.
