My thoughts on the national parks, movies, sports and whatever else comes into my mind.
2013 Creative Arts Emmys: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
The Creative Arts Emmys were held last night and here are the winners if you haven't heard about them already (courtesy of Gold Derby). Here are some of my brief thoughts on the winners:
-The "Crystal Blue Persuasion" montage was a masterwork of editing. Add in the prison montage and a jam-packed but exceptionally paced plot and there was no way that anything other than Kelley Dixon's work on Breaking Bad's "Gliding Over All" was deserving of the Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series award. Luckily, Emmy voters did what was right.
-Game of Thrones had the best season of television last year, and considering its immense scale and lavish production values it should have come home with a lot of awards last night. Instead it came home with just a makeup and visual effects award while the great but less deserving third season of Boardwalk Empire came away as the big winner.
-Manhunt, the troublesome HBO documentary about the hunt for Osama bin Laden (you can see my numerous problems with it here), won for Best Nonfiction Special over much more deserving programs like Ethel.
-I officially suck at predicting these awards. I went 20 for 72 which is a putrid 27.8% success rate.
