Emmy Awards 2015 – by R. and S.


This year ’ is the time to celebrate television and, in more detail, the best tv series. We must admit that this edition of the Emmy Awards she pleasantly surprises: After years of disappointments here is again a ray of hope in the minds of the members of the Academy ’.

Starting, allora, from unexpected surprises, the largest was undoubtedly the victory of Game of Thrones such as outstanding drama series: It matters little that the fifth season had not, under some views, all previous height ’, It's still head and shoulders over any other named. In a few d ’ will deal with us, but the harsh reality: Better Call Saul can be a funny spin-off, House of Cards will be offered other fascinating facets of the life of Frank and Claire, but none of this is even remotely comparable to the magnificence and the depth of the stories and characters of Westeros.

Game of Thrones has, rest, did incetta Awards: Twelve total figurines, the highest number of awards ever received by a single series in Emmy history. Among these twelve EC ’ is another important, to Peter Dinklage such as outstanding supporting actor in a drama series: We had defined his nomination “an SOP“, considering the impossibility of ’ not recognize the quality of his performances, But even the tendency of ’ Academy to always ignore the decisive moment. But this year ’, Although perhaps his character has not had a central role, as in the past, l ’ Tyrion interpreter back on stage after winning for the first season that now there seemed a distant mirage.

Given the precedents we really didn't expect a similar triumph, Yet since the opening of the ’ drama class victories in writing and directing fed a hope, then promptly drowned out by the lack of Emmy to Lena Headey (What must be done to win?). But the ’ Academy has finally awarded a series that over the past five years deserved a lot more in terms of awards. Interviewed on the red carpet, Rob Lowe had predicted a big night for Game of Thrones and she guessed; There could be no better way to celebrate the birthday of George R. R. Martin!

Surprised and excited as we cast and crew Game of Thrones and the same can be said for Jon Hamm, what a, After years of nominations in white, WINS as outstanding lead actor. It's about time! An Emmy that deserved a priori at the end of this exhausting waiting for an acknowledgement for his performance as Don Draper. There was ’ however, the revival of Mad Men, came to the conclusion after the seventh season was spread over two years, getting consequently – like Breaking Bad for the fifth – two nominations for the same. We do not forget the speech Dell ’ year of Julianna Margulies on broken in half seasons!

So much for joy Viola Davis with his WINS as Justin Keating outstanding lead actress for How To Get Away with Murder. An award that has an even more important meaning as it makes the Davis the first African-American actress to win the ’ Emmy for best actress. His most emotional speech of the evening, in which it takes a quote from Harriet Tubman – campaigner for the abolition of slavery ’ – and expresses the deepest importance ’ his victory “The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity. You cannot win an Emmy for roles that are simply not there”.

With our high pleasure is, instead, left empty-handed Empire: plays record, so sudden enthusiasm and high expectations ahead of awards season, Fortunately resulting in few nominations and no victory. Is a little’ the same situation Better Call Saul: Nice entertainment, Perhaps with some interesting news profile for the tv landscape, but not over sbilanciamoci.

Happiness for the drama category is inversely proportional to our reaction to that comedy, He sees the affirmation of ’ Veep for Outstanding Comedy, Outstanding Lead Actress and Outstanding Supporting Actor. Veep exceeds the veteran Modern Family, Julia Louis-Dreyfus l ’ beloved Amy Schumer, Tony Hale gets the better of Ty Burrell: with all the good will he not explain. Especially where The Big Bang Theory was completely forgotten: After application failure della serie, It was predictable that Mayim Bialik wouldn't win (beaten by Allison Janney for Mom). Disappointment for the Amazon series Transparent, that at least takes home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor with Jeffrey Tambor.

The HBO miniseries also triumphs with Olive Kitteridge, that brings home all the major statuettes, with the exception of Supporting Actress (Vince Regina King to American Crime). After the rain by nomination, disappointment American Horror Story: Freak Show, Sarah Paulson is not enough nor is the double character to be honored.
