2017 Emmy Awards

The 69th Emmy Awards aired last night, and it was a doozy. After last year’s wins for Tatiana Maslany and Rami Malek I didn’t think I could be more pleasantly surprised – I was wrong. For me, it was a satisfying show with wins going to Black Mirror, Big Little Lies, Donald Glover for Atlanta, Aziz Ansari and Lena Waithe for Master of None, and Sterling K. Brown for This is Us.

Favorite Emmy Category: Outstanding Main Title Design

Favorite Emmy Category: Outstanding Main Title Design

2016 Emmy Awards

I love TV, but I don’t love the Emmy Awards. Not only is the telecast way too long but the awards are generally predictable and repetitive. There’s a lot of things about them I’d change if I could: I’d love to see broadcast and cable shows split into two separate categories, I wish actors could only win once for every role, and as always it would be nice if more shows were recognized. However, there is one category that I can get behind – Outstanding Main Title Design.

From award shows to big TV events, on and off the screen, here’s all the other things going on besides your regularly scheduled programming.

The Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour is already underway, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty more announcements to be made regarding your favorite networks, beloved TV shows, and future programming. All of the ‘big’ news will be covered by the major entertainment sites, but Deadline is a pretty good source for all of the nitty-gritty.

And if you aren’t a TV critic, but wish you could be there I recommend following these people on Twitter for the pseudo-front-row experience: Todd VanDerWerff from The AV Club, Daniel Fienberg from HitFix.com, Eric Goldman from IGN.com, and Eric Deggans from NPR.

This Sunday is The Golden Globe Awards, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be hosting the shindig again. If that’s isn’t enough of a reason to tune in then I don’t know what is.

Less than a week later is the 20th Annual Screen Actor Guild Awards. It should be interesting to see if Breaking Bad can clean up for it’s final season.

In February the TV landscape switches gears and sports take center stage with The Super Bowl XLVIII and The Winter Olympics. For better or worse, the NBC family of channels (NBC, USA, NBC Sports, CNBC, and MSNBC) will once again be handling all of the coverage for the winter games and with a pretty sizable time zone difference between the US and Sochi it should be interesting to see if we get more or less live coverage. Watching tape-delayed events during prime time for the 2012 Summer Olympics was rather anti-climatic after the Internet spoiled almost all of the results.

The line-up for the 2014 PaleyFest was recently announced and its pretty sweet. Some of the highlights include Veronica Mars kicking things off just one day before it officially hits the big screen, a 10th anniversary Lost panel, and a farewell to How I Met Your Mother. New shows like Orange Is The New Black, Sleepy Hollow, and Masters of Sex will also being making their festival debut. The annual event is held in Los Angeles so I’ve never tried to go, but most panels are live streamed so fear-not non-California dwelling TV fans. The panels usually make their way to Hulu too, so there’s a few ways to enjoy the PaleyFest without the travel expenses.

Other things to look forward to in 2014 include upfronts, San Diego Comic Con, and the ATX Television Festival.
