    The “How did not they win” topic made me think about one interesting fact: in ’04, in the actress category, HBO almost swept all actress awards:

    Comedy Lead: SJP (Sex and the City, HBO)
    Comedy Supporting: Nixon (Sex and the City, HBO)

    Drama Supporting: DeMatteo (The Sopranos, HBO)

    Miniseries Lead: Streep (Angels in America, HBO)
    Miniseries Supporting: MLP (Angels in America, HBO)

    If Falco had won (I think she lost to Janney), HBO would have completely swept all the actress categories…

    So that’s 5/6. Pretty impressive in my opinion.

    So has this ever happened before or ever since?

    Last year in the lead actors series categories, CBS dominated as well (Parsons, McCarthy, Margulies). So that’s 3/4.

    Maybe it’s a useless fact, but I think it’s pretty interesting 😛

    I think AMC probably has the best shot of pulling something like it off.  One year they won series, actor, supporting actor, and writing.  Not far fetched to see Moss winning lead and Hendricks winning suppoting and any of their shows winning direction next year.  Not to assume Paul and Cranston are shoe ins and neither is Breaking Bad or Mad Men for Series but they are definitely ahead of the pack.

    NBC could’ve done it this year with Poehler, Baldwin, Chandler and Britton, had better tapes been submitted.

    Poehler had a perfect tape and Carrell had a better shot than Baldwin I think.  But who knows now?  Britton was never going to win.  She was like 5th on everyone’s list before tapes were announced.

    Yeah, but there was FNL euphoria going on. And now that I look it, Poehler would’ve been better off with “Harvest Festival.”

    It could have happened during those periods of NBC and HBO hegemony, but there are now too many networks in the game for it to ever happen (again).

    FX could do it with Louis CK, Charlie Day, Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins. Or even Glenn Close and Jessica Lange.

    Technically, Glenn Close is not on FX anymore since this past season won’t air there.

    And the day Charlie Day gets a very desrving nomination (as well as Glenn Howerton) is the day that something that never happens happens.  I shit fairy dust and then just flush it.

    Because anyone who knows me knows I would never flush fairy dust.

    Several networks could do it. But the Emmys have proven themselves to be as predictable as a Las Vegas slot machine, so I don’t see it happening.

    Well, as robby said, this year AMC has a good shot in all the drama categories (or the most important ones)

    It’s pretty sure that they will get Lead Actor (Cranston), Writing (BB or MM), Directing (BB or MM) and Series (BB or MM).
    They have a good shot in Supporting Actor (Paul or Esposito)
    They have a decent shot in Lead Actress (Moss)

    But I guess it’s too soon to tell…
