So happy Breaking Bad cleaned up!! I don't usually like it when a show dominated with wins once it's ended ... I always feel it's more about the ending of the show than the quality of the show - but I don't feel that in this case. Not at all!

Their win also means that Mad Men has officially been plunged into obscurity. It's taken long enough.

Most disappointing category: Outstanding Lead Actress - enough of the Good Wife! I really wanted Lizzie Caplan to win for Masters of Sex.

Ooops .. "dominates with wins" I meant to say. I wasn't so sure how to describe that - hope it makes sense!

I've been thinking ... very pleased Julia Louis Dreyfus won Best Actress for Veep - there are lots of good comedy actresses but she really is the best by far.
