The 2013 Emmy Awards are upon us and the best television has to offer have been honored. Even though most people may be watching Breaking Bad or the series finale of Dexter, not to mention the Sunday Night Football game between the Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers, the Emmy Award winners are being crowned and the festivities have moved on to the Drama categories.
Boardwalk Empire picked up it’s first award of the night thanks to Bobby Cannavale’s supporting role in season three of the show. It wasn’t the only Emmy that Cannavale was up for and it’s not the only Emmy that Boardwalk Empire is up for either.
Chances are that Cannavale’s win for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series won’t be the last award that Boardwalk Empire collects tonight. However the HBO show is up against the stiff competition of AMC’s Breaking Bad which has already equalled it’s win total with Anna Gunn taking home the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
Boardwalk Empire is still going toe-to-toe with Breaking Bad in almost every major category and the same goes for fellow HBO show Game of Thrones.
The night is still young, but an Emmy win matters no matter which major category it comes from but right now no one show has the edge on another and it will be an intense end to the night.
