RUSH! Daneil Bruhl got recognised for Rush in the States! This may be the happiest I've been about an awards thing since RotK won... ;)

The only one I feel strongly about is Bryan Cranston, who should win just for the Breaking Bad episode "Ozymandias".

I'm sad that they didn't recognize Tatiana Maslany! You think actors would be more aware of the crazy amount of work she puts in at Orphan Black.

Anna
