    Very good chat.

    – I think you guys are selling Game of Thrones a little short in the series race. I think it still has a tremendous amount of buzz, and it expanded its nominations in acting last year. If it gets into writing and/or directing, it has a shot.

    – As for lead actor, you’re making me reconsider Hamm. Maybe I should take Spader more seriously… Spacey has a good tape with the premiere because he delivers an effective speech at the end of the episode.

    – I’m with Chris as far as Masters of Sex goes (glad to hear that Daniel and Chris adore the show!). I think Caplan and Sheen get in. 

    – Downton needs to leave all categories…

    “We could have some fun with this category if we ever took a graphic novel approach.”  Ha!

    “Now, here comes Matthew McConaughey.  He won that Oscarstole
    it from Leonardo DiCaprio if you ask me.”  This seems to be common
    knowledge.  Hearing teenagers talking about in the supermarket was
    funny.

    “How do you vote for a guy who threatens to kill his own baby?”  Walt was not going to kill his baby; he intended to take her on the run with him.

    “They sustained the quality.”  On Downton Abbey?  Claire Danes absolutely has a submission in the finale.  Tom’s reason for predicting House of Cards is that he loved the second season.  Hmm…  Yay, Matthew Rhys shout-outs!  But Chris has seen the finale and was a bit disappointed, aw.  I liked Chris’s assessment of Mad Men.

    What
    you need to remember about James Spader is that he does very well in
    the tape system, but we do not know that he actually does that well in
    the popular vote.  Sure, he won twice non-consecutively for Boston Legal,
    but he was also snubbed twice non-consecutively and there were only
    five seasons.  Beyond that, he did not get in as a guest or a supporting
    actor for The Office.  What helps him with The Blacklist
    is that the academy does occasionally throw a bone to one of favourites
    and/or a successful big four network drama (Connie Britton for Nashville, Simon Baker for The Mentalist).  However, this is increasingly difficult (I think), with the rise of cable.
