    Still seeing this as a mistake for HBO but whatever, at least we have more clarity now and epic battle incoming.

    Nice.

    I’ve only made it through the premiere (my friend wants me to watch it with him), but if it is as good as everyone is saying it is, we have ourselves a legitimate contest.

    Disastrous!! They had the Emmys in the bag and now they’ve possibly thrown it away for them and possibly Game of Thrones.

    So what will win Miniseries now? Don’t tell me it’s going to be AHS.

    Let’s bring on Breaking Bad vs True Detective! Drama Series, Actor, Writing and Directing will be insane races. Michelle Monaghan will have a bit harder time getting in, but I really hope she makes it.

    Why would they do this? they’re guaranteed to win everything in the miniseries category and they throw that away to compete in drama? i don’t get it.

    i don’t think TD can beat Breaking Bad in series, not with the episodes they’re going to submit. 

    i guess matthew mcconaughey can beat bryan cranston though, no matter what category.

    Ugh this is so disappointing…

    True Detective would certainly be appropriate in the miniseries category. Competing there would have allowed them to receive a haul of nominations (all deserved, too) and it would have taken slots away from much lesser programs that manage to sneak in because of lack of contenders.  Now, it will have to fight for a slot amongst a very large group of deserving series, may not get as many nominations as it should or could, and potentially get in at the expense of equally, or more deserving, series and actors and actresses.

    HBO is traditionally very schrewed, but I think this is their submission biggest mistake in a while!

    They would have had so many Emmys in the bag if they stayed in Miniseries.

    HBO wants to stop the AMC stranglehold on drama series…

    Forget Netflix. HBO has the chance to win comedy and drama with True Detective and Veep

    Don’t forget Game of Thrones. The only reason Breaking Bad won last year was because of it’s massive hype. It won’t win again but GoT might be able to retain that hype. True Detective will seem like a long time ago when it comes time to vote on the winners.
