Samberg is likely to be low-key and that's fine, because this year's Emmys are emphatically about who wins in rough categories, not the host. Last year, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences - mindful of what TV audiences and apparently its own members have been mindful of for years - recognized that the awards process was broken, or at least inadequate to the times. This year, however, there might actually be some hope. Hamm is nominated for an Emmy Award for outstanding lead actor in a drama series. Some new faces are going to have to be recognized.

Veteran actress and comedian Lily Tomlin is among the nominees for best actress in a comedy for "Grace and Frankie".

The 2015 Emmy Awards are right around the corner. While final seasons can turn outgoing shows into sentimental favorites, how will voters respond when half of the nominated variety shows - "The Colbert Report", "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and "Late Show With David Letterman" - no longer exist?

A good, middle-of-the-road option for TV watchers, who live in the suburbs or somewhat close to a bustling metropolitan center is the Flatwave Antenna by Winegard.

The 67 Emmy Awards will be broadcasted live by FOX on Sunday night, which means their website would be the best place to watch the full event repeats once the show ends. Here's a complete list of nominees. He should win, even if his competition this year wasn't largely unimpressive. Period. Considering the high level of the performances, this reviewer would give it the Best Drama if he were in charge.

As for what the Academy will do... This was a grand finale season for the series that, along with "The Sopranos", certified a golden renaissance in drama on television.

Blocking his path to Emmy glory on four of the seven previous occasions was Bryan Cranston, certainly a worthy choice for his work as Walt White on another AMC series, "Breaking Bad".

The ABC sitcom has been an awards-season juggernaut, winning the best-comedy award each of the past five years. Ask Michael C. Hall. Yes, Hamm's performance in the final season was fascinating as it has always been, but he hasn't won for years where he's been better, and sad to say, it doesn't look like they'll start now.

Do you think Andy Samberg is the flawless host for this year's Emmys? Nominations for two black women - How to Get Away with Murder's Viola Davis and Empire's Taraji P. Henson, are a first.

Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline) deserves the award, but Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) or Jonathan Banks (Better Call Saul) will win. It's going to be razor tight, but I'm guessing that Hanson will pull out over Davis. Samberg helped make short comedy clips a bigger part of our culture via digital shorts on SNL, ranging from his first breakout hit "Lazy Sunday" to the inescapable "I'm On A Boat" (featuring T-Pain).

Which leaves us with Jonathan Banks and Alan Cumming. Because with so many awesome shows out there how will the judges choose? Joanne Frogatt and Uzo Aduba have already won prizes for their work on Downton and Orange respectively.

Another significant victor of the night was Joan Cusack, who, while not present at the ceremony, won her first Emmy for playing Sheila Jackson in Showtime's "Shameless". And can Game of Thrones tower over all other shows in TV history?
