Question: I thought this might be the year when The Walking Dead would finally be represented among the Emmy nominations, at the very least for Melissa McBride as supporting actress for last season's devastating "The Grove" episode. But the noms came and went with nary a Dead mention. I thought this show was among the most-watched basic cable shows, often posting numbers to rival some of the highest-rated broadcast programs every week. I know that its genre is already one strike against it, but is this show also a victim of its own success regarding recognition, where the more popular a show is, the more it provokes attitudes from voters that "normal" people might see as snobbish or anti-populist? While it's true that the dispersal of everybody into smaller groups during the second half of last season was seen as less than successful, and the quality this season appears to have roared back with a vengeance, I'm still thinking there will probably be no difference next year, recognition-wise.

Boardwalk Empire's Series Finale: How Did It All End?

Steve Buscemi

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Sunday's series finale of HBO's Boardwalk Empire. Read at your own risk.]

After five beautifully crafted seasons, the lights finally went out on HBO's Boardwalk Empire Sunday night. And as promised by creator and executive producer Terence Winter, who worked with the team that crafted the maddening and still-debated ending of The Sopranos, there was nothing ambiguous about it.

The show arguably reached its emotional climax in the penultimate episode, when Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) agreed to give up his Atlantic City empire to New York rival Charlie Luciano (Vincent Piazza) in order to save his nephew Willie. As such, the finale became a flashback-heavy exploration of Nucky's soul as he tied up loose ends with his brother Eli (Shea Whigam) and made plans to move to New York and live quietly, thanks to the cool $2 million he made manipulating the stock market with his former wife Margaret (Kelly Macdonald).
