    Besides the “Half Hour Series” nominations, these look good.

    Just here to say Breaking Bad is the best edited show on TV and will rightly win its category. Anyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot.

    I dunno. I’m kinda rooting for FNL this time.

    Idiot here. I’ve already aired my grieavnces, but I don’t mind being redundant. Sometimes the editing is genius, but in recent seasons it’s often been self-indulgent and counter-productive.

    “Face Off” and “Pilot” for Homeland are the most deserving.

    I’ll give you that sometimes the editing in “Breaking Bad” can be very showy, but counter productive? They never do a single cut that isn’t there to build some kind of dramatic feel for a scene, or give it dimension. I think they do a great job not going overboard with some aesthetic language choices that are very bold without necessarily going over the top or becoming more about the editing than about the scene. So I definitely disagree with “self-indulgent and counter productive”.

    Homeland
    has maybe the most consistently poor shot continuity that I have ever seen.  The pilot might have been fine, but just as Glee should not be nominated for writing even if they have a single brilliant episode in a season, Homeland should not have been nominated for editing.

    ^What do you mean by “poor shot continuity”? Continuity mistakes?

    Hair is the big one.  If you happen to have the episodes handy, check out the scene with Danes and Lewis walking through the forest, I think in “The Weekend”, in which Danes goes through three different hairstyles.  Not entirely the editors’ fault, as it appears that they filmed that short scene over three days and the makeup department must have been phoning it in, but there are a multitude of shorter scenes with such unnecessary similar shot discontinuity.

    Not the editors’ fault… They work with what they have. There should be someone on set overseeing this.

    Friday Night Lights had the worst continuity mistakes, but that’s mainly because of the way the show was shot. Not an excuse, though. Very annoying.

    Not entirely the editors’ fault—I doubt that every other shot from each continuity line was really that unusable.

    I once read an interview with an editor saying that preventing shot-to-shot inconsistencies isn’t their priority. Homeland had different editors working on different episodes, so if it’s something that happens so frequently, it’s hard to blame all of them – someone on set is not doing their job. But, these things do take away from the editing a bit, so I see your point.

    Good to see that Breaking Bad has multiple nods for two very well shot episodes. Either one of them should win.

    On another note, as much as I like Modern Family, why the editors chose one of their worst episodes is beyond me. Love the nod for “Mister Softee” though.
