List of Demands: 2013 Creative Arts Emmys

The 2013 Creative Arts Emmys will be held tomorrow night.  While they won't receive the same amount of attention that the Primetime Emmys Telecast will receive, they do produce a lot of interesting and deserving winners.  Here are the 3 things that I hope Emmy voters paid attention to:

3. The Hour Wins For Casting

The Hour was unceremoniously canceled after 2 seasons earlier this year.  Sadly, it got mostly snubbed for its first season (receiving only 1 nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Miniseries or TV Movie).  The nomination tally wasn't that much greater for its fantastic second season, but it did receive a nomination for Outstanding Casting in a Miniseries, Movie or Special.  The Hour stands little chance against miniseries/movie juggernauts like Behind the Candelabra and Top of the Lake, but I'm hoping that The Hour can pull off the upset.

2. Breaking Bad Wins For Editing

There was no better edited program this past TV season than Breaking Bad's "Gliding Over All".  The episode (edited by Kelley Dixon) featured two major montages and numerous time lapses that not only fit in perfectly, but ultimately became the highlights of the episode.  "Gliding Over All" will face stiff competition from House of Cards and another Breaking Bad episode ("Dead Freight"), but I'm hopeful that voters will get this one right.

1. Michael Slovis Wins Cinematography For Breaking Bad

Michael Slovis is easily the best DP on television currently, and yet he has never received an Emmy for his work on Breaking Bad.  Slovis isn't Emmy-less (He won one for his work on CSI), but this is career-best work that deserves recognition.  Slovis faces major competition from Boardwalk Empire and House of Cards.
