What do you think? Let us know your reaction. Deserving winners or deserving snubees?

Of course, this is all in fun. The real game in town is the Emmy awards which will air next Monday, August 25th. I, and I hope some of my fellow Douxers, will be tweeting and snarking the night away. Come join the fun and be sure to check out our full coverage of the awards and the show itself shortly after it goes off the air. In the meantime, have a great week.

Oh my god Tatiana. It's not like she doesn't deserve it though. :)

Yay for this for Tatiana and Hannibal at least. And for Jordan Gavaris.
Michael Pitt really deserved it for Hannibal.
And, James Spader for being the one of the reasons why people watch The Blacklist. Perhaps the best reason.
With Mary-Louise Parker joining soon maybe it'll improve.
