That Jim Parsons won is a crime.

Amen to that. Louie C.K. deserved that award much more than Parsons.

I agree as well but I got tired of the running joke in BIG BANG THEORY after 1 season. I hear it's great if you don't get tired of the running joke.

LCK wins EVERY year. They probably wanted a change.

I'm not saying he's a bad actor, cuz he isn't, but there were much more deserving nominees than Jim Parsons, such as Louis CK and Matt LeBlanc.

I don't even watch the other nominees, but why did Louie not win actor, writing, or directing?

Louie is hilarious! Maybe if it had a laugh track, or "live studio audience" more simpletons would find it as funny as Big Bang.

Louie has won before though and has won a lot of awards regarding his Stand up and Show. So don't take Modern family winning (again...meh) as a knock on Louie C.K.

Well overall this was a pretty nonsensical Emmy's.

Jeff Daniels winning Best actor in a Drama? (Even he was surprised)
Jim Parsons winning best actor in a Comedy?
Modern Family winning best comedy?

Well Modern Family winning has become a norm, like how it was for Mad Men to win best drama for a while. Parsons, well, people clearly seem to like him and his performance, and being liked as a person around the academy can come in handy (my only explanation for how Jimmy Fallon gets nominated). Daniels is a tricky one... Maybe people just really liked the fact he was able to knock so many Sorkin monologues out of the park despite his character basically being Tony Soprano as a news anchor?

I've seen a few episodes of Big Bang, and it does have a few laughs, but it doesn't come close to shows like Louie or Arrested Development. The writing is a constant regurgitation of "smart guys being socially inept." Jim Parsons plays a character with no range either. Louis CK and Alec Baldwin were much more deserving of the award.

Well there's also the fact that even after so many seasons they still play with tired and arguably inaccurate geek stereotypes, despite managing to have started to move beyond that after the first season.

They went really heavy on awarding what people don't watch. What's crazy is that Newsroom is critically panned as pretentious shitty garbage. I tried watching it but I figured I didn't like it because my belief that American News teams are putrid slimy cowards (Fox and MSNBC).

Parsons won over Jason Bateman? And Louis C.L.? And Don Cheedle? Hell, even Alec Baldwin? What the hell?

I am just mad that Orphan Black is nowhere to be found in this year's Emmy. The show is so good, and Tatiana Maslany could fill at least 4 spots of best actress nomination.

I think it was a timing issue. Orphan Black started airing pretty late so if it does pop up it'll probably be next year (like what happened with The Newsroom).
