Tomorrow is the big day! That is, if you define the “big day” by finding out the 2014 Emmy nominations. If not, well, your day will be some other day. True Detective is expected to appear in a number of categories including Best Miniseries, Outstanding Writing, and at least a Best Actor nod for Matthew McConaughey.
HBO handily avoided stiff competition from Fargo by submitting to Best Miniseries — a decision that has been somewhat controversial. We hope to see a well deserved nomination for Cary Joji Fukunaga in Best Director, but we’ll see how that goes. We’ll also start taking bets on whether or not Woody Harrelson will be snubbed, so please let us know where you sit with that.
Are you looking forward to tomorrow’s announcement, or do you think this is all a waste of time? A win could spell good things for True Detective’s future, but it’s no guarantee of anything. We’ll be waiting on bated breath.
