Question: I have never been a fan of Two and a Half Men (tried to watch it years ago, but the only thing I found funny was Conchata Ferrell) and never understood how it has stayed on the air for so long. I saw that creator Chuck Lorre is planning on the main storyline next season to be about the two main characters (Walden and Alan, both heterosexual) "marrying" each other in order for Walden to achieve his goal of adopting a child. To me, I find this appalling on so many levels. Gay men and women (and their straight allies) have fought for so long for equal marriage rights, so having two straight men "marry" just seems like a mockery for those fighting for marriage equality. I am a little ashamed of Lorre even coming up with this idea (particularly as his biggest star, Jim Parsons, on his biggest show, The Big Bang Theory, is gay). Your thoughts? — Tim in Atlanta

TCA Awards: Orange Is the New Black, Breaking Bad Win Big

Orange is the New Black

There were few surprises at the 30th Annual Television Critics Association Awards. Orange Is the New Black earned Outstanding New Program whileBreaking Bad's final season scored Program of the Year for the second consecutive season.

While last year, Tatiana Maslany beat out favorites like Bryan Cranston to win the Individual Achievement in Drama honors, this year the Orphan Black star got no love from either the TCAs or the Emmys. Instead, Matthew McConaughey took home the award for his work in True Detective, which also got lauded in the Movies, Miniseries and Specials category. Similarly, Veep doubled up its wins with awards for its star and to tie Louie in the Comedy category.

Ask Matt: Emmy Snubs, Sweden, 24, Dome and Extant, and More

Juliana Margulies, Tatiana Maslany

Question: Once again, this year's Emmy nominations are predictably boring. What was the bigger snub: No Good Wife nomination for Best Drama (especially with a weak Downton Abbey season in its place) or no nomination for Tatiana Maslany for her web of roles on Orphan Black? (I already know the answer: Both snubs were egregious.) — Erin

Critic's Notebook: The Emmy Nominations

Lena Headey

No one expects the Emmy nominations to please everybody — there's simply too much TV these days, including on unconventional platforms like Netflix, and there are always going to be shows and performers that won't make the cut, however deserving. But even when the Emmy voters get something right, like adding HBO's freshman hoot Silicon Valley to the best-comedy contenders, we still find ourselves griping over where they stumbled, nowhere more glaringly than in the drama-series race. (For a list of nominees in the major categories, go here.)

Emmy Watch: First Time for Fantasy?

Peter Dinklage

Is this the year Game of Thrones finally breaks through the Emmy geek ceiling? Shows with sci-fi, fantasy or horror themes are rarely major awards contenders, despite earning great reviews and top ratings. In fact, in Emmy history, only one genre show has won Outstanding Drama Series — Lost, in 2005. More often, these shows get rewarded in the craft categories, like special effects and makeup, if they... read more
