    Breaking bad is a front runner for Drama series. However it has NEVER won directing or writing. Can Breaking Bad pull out a win for either?

    I think that Breaking Bad will finally win Writing this year. My pick
    would be “Ozymandias”, although “Felina” is also a definite possibility –
    especially since it was nominated for Directing while “Ozymandias”
    wasn’t. I’m not sure what that means, or if it means anything that all,
    but it was certainly a surprise. We also have to consider the
    possibility of vote splitting, which could open up the door for True
    Detective (“The Secret Fate of All Life”) if support for that show is
    strong enough. I don’t think that Game of Thrones (“The Children”) and
    House of Cards (“Chapter 14”) have much of a shot, although I wouldn’t
    be unhappy if Game of Thrones pulled off the major upset.

    1. Moira Walley-Beckett, Breaking Bad – “Ozymandias”
    2. Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad, “Felina”
    3. Nic Pizzolatto, True Detective, “The Secret Fate of All Life”
    4. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Game of Thrones – “The Children”
    5. Beau Willimon, House of Cards – “Chapter 14”

    In
    the Directing category, the surprise snub of Rian Johnson for
    “Ozymandias” certainly opens the door for Vince Gilligan to win for
    “Felina” because there’s no longer a risk of the Breaking Bad support
    being split. However, True Detective (“Who Goes There”) is going to be
    very tough to beat, because this is the episode that features the
    much-lauded six-minute tracking shot, and if voters want to reward True
    Detective in another major category in addition to Matthew McConaughey for Drama Actor,
    then this is probably the category. It’s close, but I would give Cary Fukunaga and True Detective the slightest of edges at the moment.

    If
    you’re looking for another potential spoiler, watch out for Neil
    Marshall for Game of Thrones (“The Watchers on the Wall”) – given the epic, almost cinematic scale of that episode, I think that
    he could surprise. And Tim van Patten did win this category last year
    for directing another episode of Boardwalk Empire, so he can’t be
    counted out.

    Downton Abbey and House of Cards are also-rans here.

    1. Cary Joji Fukunaga, True Detective – “Who Goes There”
    2. Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad – “Felina”
    3. Neil Marshall, Game of Thrones – “The Watchers on the Wall”
    4. Tim van Patten, Boardwalk Empire – “Farewell Daddy Blues”
    5. Carl Franklin, House of Cards – “Chapter 14”
    6. David Evans, Downton Abbey – “Episode 1”

    It can win both, but will win just one (Writing). ”Felina” could take it  but is difficult not to ignore ”Who Goes There” final scene.

    It would be really funky.
    Gilligan got his “Finally” award last year so there’s no sense of dueness that they would feel the need to give him a couple more in one night.

    Cary has already directed more episodes of True Detective than Gilligan did of Breaking Bad in 6 years, making the whole show very much his from that standpoint, and IMO Gilligan isn’t even the show’s best director.

    Ozymandias should be a lock right? But if you think about it, they might want to give them directing. They´ve been nominted every season and never won, its a finale…breaking bad´s finale, and they clearly know its Vince Gilligan the one nominated here. Its very plausible that they reward THIS finale than True Detective´s inspired directing…

    I think “Felina” is winning writing to give Vince Gilligan his big solo win (though “Ozymandias” is what should win instead for Moira Walley-Beckett). It’s just like David Chase and “The Sopranos” all over again. Sigh. I doubt he sweeps both categories. Fukunaga will be difficult to beat for the tracking shot episode in directing.

    Writing:
    Ozymandias, Breaking Bad – Moira Walley-Beckett
    Felina, Breaking Bad – Vince Gilligan
    Secret Fate of All Life, True Detective – Nic Pizzolatto
    The Children, Game of Thrones – David Benioff & D.B. Weiss
    Chapter 14, House of Cards – Beau Willimon

    Directing:
    Who Goes There. True Detective – Cary Joji Fukunaga
    Felina, Breaking Bad – Vince Gilligan 
    The Watchers on the Wall, Game of Thrones – Neil Marshall
    Chapter 14, House of Cards – Carl Franklin
    Farewell Daddy Blues, Boardwalk Empire –  Tim Van Patten
    Episode 4.1, Downton Abbey – David Evans

    Although I deeply want Breaking Bad to make a sweep, I know it won’t happen but I do believe Breaking Bad CAN sneak into Directing but since Cary has directed films it can help him

    I agree with what everyone is saying. It will win in Writing, probably Ozymandias, but won’t win in Directing, because of True Detective. Also, it is tragic that Hitting The Fan isn’t in either of these categories, but that is old news.

    It will 100% win writing, I’m not sure about directing though, that True Detective episode was really well directed, especially with that 6-min shot at the end
