    One thing I have noticed about “The Sopranos” is that they lost the directing category every year until 2007 when Alan Taylor won for the episode “Kennedy and Heidi”. Having that in mind do fans of “Breaking Bad” thing the show could do the same and finally win for their long deserved category with Vince Gilligan win for directing the finale? I remember back when he was nominated for directing the pilot I was rooting for him to win. I think now that David Fincher and Oscar nominee is not nomiated and the show has enough buzz to win this category and the writing category. What do you all think??

    It’s not out of question although I think “BB” has bigger chance to win Writing for “Ozymandias” with Directing going to “Who Goes There” from “True Detective”. These 2 have the biggest buzz and split the other way around is less likely. Now watch “House of Cards” winning both for “Chapter 14”.

    Writing is very likely, directing not so much since the True Detective episode was so buzzed. Although having a single nomination, surely works in Breaking Bad favor.

    Though I don’t think that Writing will go to Ozymandias. They know Gilligan, they will vote for him, Felina will be the winner.

    I still think it’s bogus that “True Detective” is not in the miniseries categories since it is a series where there is a different cast every season if that is not a miniseries I do not know what is.

    I thought “Ozymandias” was the show’s best episode ever and would rather see that win for writing

    I think it all comes down to 2 possible scenarios, 1) If they to give a big farewell hug to Breaking Bad, or 2) Spread the love among the nominees.

    If it’s No. 1, I think they could award Ozymandias in writing, because is a freaking masterpiece, and give best directing to Felina as a way to award Gilligan individually, just like the last season of The Sopranos when the Academy gave directing to Alan Taylor and give writing to David Chase.

    If it’s No. 2, I think they will want to reward Gilligan individually, and give him best writing, and than give best director to Fukunaga, who has the buzziest episode in the category (and as many people says, is probably who deserves it the most). Or they can give directing to someone else who pulls “a Van Patten” like to years ago, and of course that includes Van Patten himself.

    There could be a possible third scenario, in which the Academy is all over the moon for True Detective and give them both writing and directing. It’s possible too, and the series has really strong entries in both categories.

    Personally, I would like to Ozymandias to win. I’m not the biggest fan of Breaking Bad, but I must admit it was probably the best TV episode of last season. Also, the snub of Rian Johnson for directing still hurts too much!, so it would be great that at least the episode wins this one.

    It could, probably. 

    Although True Detective has a great episode as well as the other five nominees, I think it will either go to House of Cards or Breaking Bad. Or suddenly another one for Boardwalk Empire.

    The writing, oh it WILL go to either episodes of Breaking Bad, and I think it will go to “Felina”.

    I’m predicting Fukunaga to win directing, so no. Writing at least yes, and hopefully for the right episode.

    Fukunaga has it in the bag.
