Emmy slugfest: Can ‘True Detective’ take down ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘House of Cards’? (video)

How will “True Detective” fare at the Emmys now that sneaky HBO moved it over to the race for Best Drama Series? Can it take down reigning champ “Breaking Bad” and overdue titan “House of Cards“?

Orange is the New Black” just scooted out of that category to try and snag the last laugh in the Comedy Series race. Can it win? Or will it bow to “Modern Family,” which is now angling for its fifth victory in a row. If it prevails again, it will tie the series record held by “Frasier,” but it faces serious competition from Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and HBO’s “Veep” and newcomer “Silicon Valley.”

I rounded up some of our editorial team members to size up these hot Emmy contests: Daniel Montgomery, Rob Licuria, Matt Noble, Charles Bright and Riley Chow. BELOW: Watch the video or else listen to the audio podcast version. Check out Gold Derby’s podcast page at iTunes.
