Oooh. Aaron Paul is an interesting choice, they do skew towards younger actors for the announcement though he’s a surprise, especially given that he’s a double winner already. Kate Mara though is suggestive of possible HoC love, and acceptance of Netflix. It’s like english literature all over again – finding the hidden meanings in everything.June 27, 2013 at 11:10 am #282216
Sign of the times! This is the first duo that non of them come from network.June 27, 2013 at 11:28 am #282217
Isn’t the thing that usually goes that one of the presenters get nominated, and the other isn’t? I think it’s clear Aaron Paul is coming back, so… sorry Mara.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJune 27, 2013 at 11:30 am #282218
Yeah, there’s no way in Hell Mara is getting in. Paul, on the other hand, is proably the biggest lock for a nomination in any category this year.June 27, 2013 at 11:31 am #282219
Isn’t the thing that usually goes that one of the presenters get nominated, and the other isn’t? I think it’s clear Aaron Paul is coming back, so… sorry Mara.
Usually, though Neil Patrick Harris and Kristin Chenowith were both nominated when they announced in 2008.
Still, I’m thinking Mara will probably be left out.June 27, 2013 at 11:44 am #282220
Just went to move Aaron Paul to first place, but he was already there. This moves Kate Mara up to eleventh for me.
CBS fucked up by not having Jonny Lee Miller, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki or Simon Helberg as one of the presenters. They all could have used the little push.
Pretty cool that the presenters are from Breaking Bad and Netflix’s House of Cards.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJune 27, 2013 at 11:47 am #282221
Aaron Paul is not winning. I have him in third place.June 27, 2013 at 11:48 am #282222
Chandra Wilson and Jim Parsons were also both nominated in 2009.June 27, 2013 at 11:48 am #282223
I rank by likelihood of nomination.June 27, 2013 at 11:49 am #282224
Yeah, I rank by nomination too. It’s too early to tell who will win or not.June 27, 2013 at 11:51 am #282225
If I were to rank by likelihood of winning, Aaron Paul would not even
be in my top six because in no scenario would he ever win. At least
some longshots who have very little chance of being nominated have some
chance of winning if they get in because they have great tapes.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantJune 27, 2013 at 11:51 am #282226
I do a combination of both, as most of you guys know.June 27, 2013 at 11:51 am #282227
Yeah, I rank by nomination too. It’s too early to tell who will win or not.
At this stage it’s clearly the way to go.
