Question: You are probably going to get a lot of angry email about how Orange Is the New Black and True Detective didn't win any of the major Emmys. But I think they may have suffered from submitting in the wrong category, and some of the voters probably didn't want to get more viewers angry after letting both OITNB and True Detective submit in the wrong categories. So glad for Julianna Margulies' win for The Good Wife and Jim Parsons' win for The Big Bang Theory. But the biggest shock for me is Sherlock's three wins, couldn't be any happier. Which win/snub shocked you, and do you think OITNB and True Detective could have won more awards if they had submitted in the proper categories? — Aadil
If you take comfort in the Emmy Awards' almost shocking predictability in rewarding so many of the same shows and stars year after year, this might have been your favorite Emmy show ever. Otherwise, good luck distinguishing this rather dreary ceremony from any other year's. Instead, maybe it's worth looking ahead to next fall, when Breaking Bad will be out of the running and (lighting a candle to the Academy powers that be) Mad Men's Jon Hamm might finally get his Emmy after losing seven in a row, although at this point I wouldn't count on it. (It would help if Mad Men raises its game for its last stand.)
Breaking Bad's farewell tour went out on a high note, as the AMC drama won five awards including drama series at Monday's Primetime Emmy Awards, while Modern Family completed a historic five-peat.
Bad, which also scored drama series last year, became the sixth show to win for its final season after The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Barney Miller, Everybody Loves Raymond and The Sopranos. It's also the first to win the top prizes at ...
Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson
According to the Emmy Awards ballot, True Detective isn't a miniseries, but Fargo and American Horror Story: Coven are. Orange is the New Black, Nurse Jackie and Shameless are comedies, even though there are frequently more tears than laughs on those shows.
The debate over how to classify shows that defy classification ruffled plenty of feathers during this year's Emmy campaign season. Yet...
Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch
Sherlock will return for another four installments in 2015, including a Christmas special, Entertainment Weekly reports. The BBC series, starring Benedict Cumberbatch andMartin Freeman, will begin production on a special one-off episode and a three-episode fourth season next year.
Forget the old Rodgers & Hammerstein song about June. TV is busting out all over, and what a remarkable week it has been. Starting with HBO's Game of Thrones wrapping another astounding season last Sunday — this run of episodes blessed by being able to dramatize so many, though not all, of the climactic events of book 3, A Storm of Swords, the best in George R.R. Martin's "Song of Ice & Fire" series — ending with a...

No matter how many shades of green Malvo could discern, he still didn't see his predator coming until it was too late.
On Tuesday's Season 1 finale of Fargo, unscrupulous hitman Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) got caught by surprise twice. The first time, he stepped into...
Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thornton
Fargo has come full circle.
When the dark comedy airs its season finale on Tuesday (10/9c, FX), Lorne Malvo (Billy Bob Thornton) and Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) will complete the dance they started with each other in the premiere. The drifter-hitman and milquetoast-turned-murderer had been apart for most of the season, but circumstances and hubris recently brought them back together for a fatal misadventure.

Allison Tollman and Martin Freeman
Don't be fooled by Fargo's "Minnesota nice." Lurking behind that polite veneer could be a killer or the cop who will bring that killer to justice. On Tuesday's episode, Deputy Molly Solverson (Allison Tolman) maneuvers Lester Nygaard (Martin Freeman) into revealing ...
