Tv Season Info
Amid profound changes in how, where, and why we watch television, the medium's flagship organization seemed confused as to which "Golden Age" to celebrate.
For shows and actors that are going on and on and on, it can be hard not to wish for something different. Not because the winners aren't deserving, but because it would be an opportunity for someone new to hold a statue on stage.

The problem with [Seth Meyers'] hosting performance had less to do with his material, and more to do with his dry and stiff delivery. He didn't quite connect with the audience, never owned the room.
A staggering amount of good television was acknowledged in the telecast on NBC, even if the show itself dragged, with the most love heaped on "Breaking Bad" as a going-away prize.
