    Oh wait, Downton Abbey only had 7 episodes in the first series, so maybe that's why it was eligible for Best Miniseries/Movie.

    What? Where is Community?!??

    I recently watched the special features/behind-the-scenes on the stop-motion Christmas special from the second season. The cast was in a studio recording some singing (Yvette is really good!) and then Joel McHale said to the camera, "Suck it, Glee." :lol:

    Agreed. Glee was TERRIBLE this year, too.

    I love that both Viola Davis and Meryl Streep were nominated and Meryl Streep just wrote a piece for Entertainment Weekly raving about Viola Davis.

    Is Octavia Davis and Jessica Chastain going to be splitting the vote for Supporting?

    Should Jessica be campaigning for another film?

    I think you meant Octavia Spencer, and yes, they could split the vote. I still think Octavia could win.

    Re Downton Abbey - I was just informed that it was submitted (at least for Emmys) before they knew they were getting a second season. So that explains the Emmys, but they've known since before the SAGs and GG's.

    Though I'm sure in the past there were shows that were cancelled after just 1 season that won major awards in the acting categories (I'm thinking Gena Davis in that show where she was president) - it just bothers me really that Maggie Smith (who is awesome) won the Emmy over Evan Rachel Wood who was amazing in Mildred Pierce, which was legitimately a miniseries.

    I would love to be in a theater (theatre?) full of people watching "Downton Abbey" whenever Maggie Smith is onscreen. So much sarcasm delivered with such relish: I think the audience would be howling.

    I wonder what are they going to do for Downton Abbey series 2 come Emmy time.
    BTW, I finished watching series 2 online, and though I still enjoyed it, it pales in comparison to series 1.
