Emmy Live Blog VI: Manning Up
Gut check time, Academy! Mad Men has been shut out so far. Will they win a writing award? Will BSG or The Wire, also nominated? This must freak out the voters, as it's a plethora of quality and daring, with nary a cliche to be found. There's no David E. Kelly or Michael Chiklis to hide behind here, Emmy voters! What will it be? Or will you find a way to somehow reward a Picket Fences script?
...And the award goes to Matthew Weiner for Mad Men. Good for him.
