    With this new Emmy system, more people from a respective branch can vote on the winners. However, there is still an affidavit that each person has to sign (or virtually agree to) in order to cast their vote.

    On Twitter, someone tweeted to Cryer that he should vote for Hamm, and he did. A few moments later, someone told him to vote for Hendricks, and he did (with photo evidence).

    It is clear that he did not watch the episodes for each contender before voting, therefore violating the affidavit. There is photo evidence! Ask him what happened in Lena Headey or Kyle Chandler’s episode, and I bet he has no idea.

    This completely undermines the Emmy system, and he should be banned from voting as a result. What makes this even sadder is the fact that he won an Emmy due to people watching his episode! And now he disrespects the entire system by blindly voting for his favorites. 

    The television academy needs to do two things:
    (1) Crack down on people who knowingly violate their rules (so ban Cryer).
    (2) Change the system next year so that people cannot vote if all of the videos in a category have not been played. This would curb this kind of behavior.  

    If we want the Emmys to maintain any kind of prestige, we have to let them know that their system is completely broken right now.

    I wonder how he ranked the rest of the nominees.

    Did he vote for Jon Hamm because he’s his favorite or because of someone’s tweet?

    The tweet probably added the urgency (he quickly voted for Hendricks after being reminded), but they were probably his favorites anyway.

    Not sure why it matters?

    There’s a huge difference. You’re either voting because you like Jon Hamm or because some random person on twitter wants you to vote for Jon Hamm. The latter is much worse.

    I didn’t mean to imply that someone on Twitter controlled Cryer’s vote.

    I just meant to say that it spurred him to complete the action. I think he is voting with conviction, but it is blind conviction, and that is the problem.

    He is at least open about it, most of the voters will vote like this

    This is a very misleading thread. Damaging i might even add. There is no thruth in all of this.

    No one told Jon Cryer who to vote for! He has been campaigning and tweeting about Hamm (and Mad Men) for the longest!

    Don’t just read one tweet, read the whole feed. He sent a similar tweet for Julia Louis Dreyfuss a few years ago, and for Bob Newhard as well.

    Yes, most people are unhappy about the new Emmy rules (don’t know why??), but dragging someone and trying to bring  a lie across as the truth just to spur up conversation is crazy.

    The editors of Gold Derby have to crack down on this.

    Seriously. The fact that you would suggest a grown ass man, a respected actor would be so blatantly lazy and easily manupilated is baffling.

    Cool, you missed the entire point of this thread. 

    I do think it is blatant. After someone quickly suggested that he vote for Chistrina Hendricks (and then he posted a pic suggesting he did), do you think he watched all of the other episodes in contention?

    Or do you think he did that before the tweet?
    C’mon now.

    I do not care if he has been campaigning for Hamm — in fact, that makes it worse!

    In order to vote, he had to have watched “Part 12” (Bloodline), “What Kind of Day Has it Been” (The Newsroom), “Pimento” (Better Call Saul), “Walk This Way” (Ray Donovan), “Chapter 32” (House of Cards), “Hugs Can Be Deceiving” (Orange is the New Black), “Loser Edit” (The Good Wife), “The Dance of Dragons” + “Mother’s Mercy” (Game of Thrones), and “Episode Eight” (Downton Abbey), along with the ‘Mad Men’ episodes.

    Due to how fast he posted a picture of voting for Hendricks after someone tweeted him, it is reasonably clear he probably did not watch the competing episodes.

    It’s not that difficult to understand.

    It seems that the tapes are being ignored and it is turning into a popularity contest like we feared.

    CanadianFan, he is a Mad Men supporter. Has always been. If you had taken the time and actually read his tweets, you would have seen that.
    You suggested his votes were based on a twitter users tweet. Like he voted Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks because a tweet told him to.

    Regular readers of his account already knew he was going to vote for Hendricks and Hamm. He discussed the shows episodes already.

    You are grabbing at straws, concocting lies to fit into you hate-filled posts, and you are enticing other users to join in based on those lies.

    It’s his vote. He can vote for whoever he wants. You don’t know whether he watched the other tapes. And whether he genuinely finds Hendricks and Hamm worthy of the win.

    Just stop. If this was about Game of Thrones or Orange is the New Black, you would not be this passionate.

    Yeah, it’s great for Mad Men finally winning acting Emmys, but I don’t like it becoming a popularity contest. I mean, what if Modern Family wins again because no one watched the tapes and just name-checked it?

    It is actually impressive how many times you have missed my point. I explicitly said his vote was not because someone on Twitter told him to vote for that person! Read my response to 24Emmy.

    Actually, he can only vote for whoever he wants ONLY IF he has watched all of the episodes, per the affidavit. And you’re so misinformed — I want Jon Hamm to win! But not this way.

    “I just meant to say that it spurred him to complete the action.”

    The fact that i am even debating this is weird. YOU said a fan tweeted him to vote, and he voted. You apologised, by saying you didn’t mean that, you actually meant the tweet spurred him to vote.
    That is the exact same thing!

    You started the thread on a lie, and you are continuing with the said lie.

    If you want to start a discussion regarding how voters choose to vote (which you have already done by the way) , do it. Not in this way.

    Cryer voted based on his own resolutions. Not based on a tweet. That “spurred” him to. You want to (again) start a debate on the new voting system, which you feel so passionately about. The evidence you brought on was WRONG.
