Apocalypse Now? Emmys End On Time; Tatiana Maslany For The Win!

orphan-black

I’m not sure what the signs of the Apocalypse are but two of them are probably tonight’s Emmy Awards show finishing on time and the Academy actually giving Tatiana Maslany the Emmy for Lead Actress in a Drama.

Seriously. Who’d a thunk it? The members of the Academy must have actually watched some of the multitude of screeners with which they were deluged with this year.

I’m so stoked about this that I’m not terribly ticked off by many of the other choices (not that will keep me from commenting…) – all of which follow the jump.

Another case of the Academy actually watching the screeners.

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series

Rami Malek – Mr. Robot: USA Network

I did not. see. that. coming! Best opening line of an acceptance speech ever (‘Please tell me you’re seeing this too!’) – doubly effective because it works both for Malek and his character, Elliot.
