    I know that the final half season of Mad Men doesn’t start until at least Spring, but if you want to talk about the show and hopes for its upcoming final season, this is the place.

    Early predictions for the final season: Mad Men will win writing for its finale. I think it will be like a 30 rock scenario. It will gain more nominations for its actors and will earn directing and writing nomination again (for its finale). Jon Hamm is a sure bet for the nomination and is in the conversation for the win if the writers write good material for him. So I could see him winning. The Overdue factor is on his favour. Elisabeth Moss and Hendricks are also coming back. Who knows? Maybe John Slattery comes back again. I don’t think Mad Men will win a fifth win for Drama Series but it will win something and I think Writing is fitting. I would love to see Jon Hamm winning after losing and losing and losing. Now Cranston is out, McConaughey and Harrelson are out. The only competition for him is Spacey and Daniels. So let’s see what happens by the time the season 7B airs.

    With Cranston gone, I hope Hamm could win but as Adr m. said there is Spacey and I wholeheartidly beleive that he will win for playing Frank at some point and maybe that might be next year.

    I doubt Spacey ever wins. He needs a fantastic tape. Otherwise, the performance is just too campy and self-aware. Hamm may have a chance, but we have no idea what that category will look like.

    I would be over the moon if Moss and Hamm were to win for their final season. But considering the tapes that they have submitted and lost for in previous years when their show was THE show on television, I have no idea what they would have to do in order to win. I have actually realized that they realistically will not win, and that is okay. Regardless, those two and their fantastic cast deserve a fantastic send off if there ever was such a thing. 

    In regards to Spacey: I just cannot picture him winning. He’ll continue to be nominated, but everyone you talk to about HoC is usually divided on him, whilst lauding Wright. Not that is who I believe will win in the next year or two for HoC.

    That’s the problem I have. Spacey doesn’t exactly disappear into the role, does he? 

    I’m kind of wondering if Clive Owen and Aden Young will be part of the conversation. The more I see of The Knick, the more I like it… and season two Rectify was one of my favorite dramas this year.

    I watched the first episode of the Knick and I honestly feel like Owen could get nominated. I never really paid much attention to his acting other than “Closer” but he is a revelation in that show.

    Clive Owen could end up getting snubbed a la Kelsey Grammer in Starz’s Boss. We don’t know if Emmy will embrace a Cinemax show despite Steven Soderbergh’s involvement. Does the show actually get any buzz? But with three spots open, Clive Owen has a pretty good shot for now.

    If no new contender arrives, Jon Hamm should be the frontrunner. The fact that he never won an Emmy has been repeated over and over, and his overdue factor is louder than those of Steve Carell, Hugh Laurie (snubbed in the final season) and possibly Amy Poehler. This plus a strong enough tape with no obvious rivals could finally lead him to victory.

    If the Emmys can embrace Netflix shows, why not a Cinemax one? Plus, HBO has been airing the repeats. Gives many more people a chance to watch (I don’t have Cinemax, so it’s nice to have this ability to see it, even though it’s delayed). By chance, I was able to get Cinemax the other night (this happens every once in a while), and was able to see the fourth episode without having to wait for HBO to show it, and it was another very good one.  Liking it a whole lot more than I expected to.

    Cinemax is known for being a home of softcore porn and pulpy shows while Netflix is considered a new HBO/AMC. But since Cinemax is HBO’s sister channel and The Knick has goodwill with Steven Soderbergh and Clive Owen involved, HBO might help push The Knick onto Emmy’s radar.

    Yeah. Hope so, anyway.  There seems to be a better chance for Owen, than for Aden Young, though he’s so very good in Rectify.

    In a just world, Rectify would end up with nominations for actor, supporting actress , supporting actor and at least one guest nomination. Back to mad men, Hamm would have to get a groundbreaking tape that shows all the emotions I am sure he can express since he did it in the suitcase eventhough that was baity as hell. But it is too soon to tell, let’s wait for the new shows to premiere, god I’m tryign to resist watching The Knick, damn you guys.

    Resistance is futile.

    Christina Hendricks Joins Cameron Crowe’s Showtime Comedy Roadies
    http://www.vulture.com/2014/12/christina-hendricks-roadies-cameron-crowe.html

    Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks is joining the cast of Cameron Crowe’s Showtime pilot Roadies, the network announced today. The show is set within a tour of a successful rock band and is largely told through the crew members’ eyes. Hendricks will play Shelli, the band’s production manager, who’s described in the press release as “tough, but privately emotional, married to her job … and scary-good at it.”

    Well, okay. Hendricks joins the previously cast Luke Wilson, who plays the tour manager; Imogen Poots, who plays an electrical technician; Keisha Castle-Hughes, who plays the sound mixer; Peter Cambor, who plays a guitar tech; and Rafe Spall, the financial manager sent to babysit the crew.

    The pilot shoots early next year, with Crowe writing and directing the first ep, My So-Called Life‘s Winnie Holzman as showrunner, and J.J. Abrams among the executive producers. Hendricks has had several film roles during Mad Men‘s run, but this would be her first major TV commitment post–Sterling Cooper, and while the loss of Joan Harris looms large, the idea that Hendricks could still be on TV, sharply telling people what to do, is a comfort.

    I don’t think the show will do a lot on Emmy night. Final season or not, the Academy has been shutting it out for three years in a row now. I don’t really see more than a single category going their way, if any.
