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.
Breaking Bad was heavily favored to win the Emmy for Best Drama but it was by no means a lock, which is something we saw demonstrated numerous times over the course of the night. Actor Bryan Cranston was shut out of a Best Actor Emmy which ended up going to Newsroom star Jeff Daniels.
While Breaking Bad was deserving of the award for Best Drama, all of the nominees had a chance despite the odds. Game of Thrones has proven to be one of the most popular and well produced shows on television while House of Cards emerged as not only an early favorite when the nomination list was released, but it has served as a game changer in terms of the way we view television shows.
But there was no drama for the Best Drama award, as there isn’t a show on television than Breaking Bad and the show deservingly took home the Emmy Award for Best Drama.
