    I'm hoping for Stranger Things to win, but I agree that Mr. Robot should have been in the mix. It's quickly become one of my favorite shows.

    And while I'm hoping Stranger Things will win, I'd be shocked if Game of Thrones didn't get the nod. I've never gotten into the show, but it's impossible to pull up my Facebook feed during one of their seasons and not see at least a handful of postings.

    It depends if I'm watching with young kids or my adult friends!

    My favorite adult Christmas movie is "Bad Santa" and I'm looking forward to catching the sequel sometime before Christmas.

    My favorite family Christmas movies are National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Love Actually, and Elf. I wish I appreciated the "classics" more, but I just was never able to get into them.

    I've really tried to like the show too, but it just isn't for me.

    I think my main issue is that a panel is not the right format for show that is only 22 minutes long. It seems like he is trying to replicate Bill Maher's format, but Maher has an hour long show without any commercials. You can't have an in-depth discussion with a group of people when a segment is confined to 7-10 minutes.

    Part of me feels bad for Wilmore because he had the impossible task of filling the spot left by Stephen Colbert. Comedy Central must have known that no matter who they put in wouldn't be able to fill his shoes.

    Trevor has a tough road ahead of him. I think he is doing ... okay in the first go of things. He hasn't lost me yet. I was lost on the Nightly Show after 2 episodes. I could tell I would not like the host or the format almost instantly. Trevor though I do like. I just wonder if he will actually be able to be successful and genuinely funny and original for a fraction of the time Stewart was. I hope so.

    I think he has the impossible task of taking over a wildly popular show from someone who chose to step down in his prime. No matter what he does won't be good enough for some people just because Jon Stewart is no longer sitting behind the desk, but I have been quite impressed with him so far.

    He seemed a little nervous (and understandably so) the first few days, but his take down of Donald Trump at the end of last week was sheer genius.

    The way I look at it is that he is already getting pretty comfortable in the first 2/3 of the show, but needs a little help when it comes to interviewing guests. That's something that will take some time to master though. It took years for Jon Stewart to become the interviewer he was and we shouldn't expect Noah to be great at it right off the bat.

    I've been quite impressed with him so far. He's only two nights in, and while he seemed visibly (and understandably) nervous his first night, he seems to be settling in just fine.

    I'm happy he's seeming to completely change the format of the show, but I can tell he's making his mark by having a comedian and an owner of a dating website as his first two guests. He explicitly said he was going to be focusing less on politics and his guests so far have shown that, but he still does spend a decent chunk of the show discussing the political landscape, which makes fans like me happy enough!

    It will take him a month or two to really find his footing, but I think he's doing a great job after his first couple shows.

    Jon Hamm finally took home the Best Actor in a Drama Series and I think he deserved it. I wasn't really rooting for any specific actor, but Hamm has been looked over so many times for that award and it was nice to see him finally get it.

    12 Emmys is one hell of a feat. They not only surpassed The West Wing, they shattered them and everyone else.

    I thought they would win five or more, but I was a little surprised that they won as many as they did. I'm not the biggest fan of the show and think that television has so many great series that it's unfortunate only one series gets all of the limelight. I guess I'm in the minority though!

    Regardless of my personal opinions, I still tip my hat to them.

    The 2015 Emmy's are shaping up to be a big night for a few shows and might be a disappointing night for others. HBO's hit show "Game of Thrones" netted an insane 24 nominations and they have the real potential of winning a good chunk of those nominations, but I would be shocked if they won them all.

    Television has been going through a major resurgence recently and I can't imagine how difficult it is to pick just one winner for each category when multiple actors and shows could easily win. I don't envy the judges this year because no matter who or what they choose there will be a whole lot of people who disagree with them.

    The awards I'll be watching the most are Best Comedy Series, Best Drama Series, and the best Actors/Actresses in each. I am a huge comedy fan and I follow every show that has been nominated outside of "Transparent." I have a hard time picking between the remaining shows, but if I had to pick it would be "Parks and Recreation." This is mainly because it was their final season and it would be nice to see them go out with a bang. But I would be just as happy with "Veep" or "Silicon Valley" taking home the hardware.

    Best Drama Series is just as difficult for me. I follow every single one of the shows that drew nominations and I have a hard time singling one out as my favorite. I know "Mad Men" will likely win just because it was their final season, but I have to admit that--while I love that show--it is one of my least favorite out of the group. I love "House of Cards," but their last season wasn't very impressive and it seems like that show has gotten a little off track. If I had to pick one as my favorite it would be "Homeland," but it would be naive of me to think that they will actually win.

    It will be interesting to see who wins the best actor/actress awards for both the comedy and drama categories. I don't necessarily have a favorite that I'll be rooting for, outside of Julia Louis-Dreyfus for her role in "Veep." She is hilarious in that show and I would recommend it to anyone who hasn't watched it before.

    I'm interested to see what other people think. Do I have some good choices or am I crazy for not wanting "Game of Thrones" to run away with the show?

    I was pretty impressed with his first show. I honestly didn't know what to expect from it, but he definitely exceeded my expectations.

    Only time will tell if he'll be a good fit for the show. It's weird seeing him on CBS, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. I've never been a big fan of the Big 3's late night show's, but hopefully he will change that. It's really nice to see him back on the air after his long hiatus.

    Heisenberg Wrote: Also of note, Nicki Minaj called her out during an acceptance speech over something Miley said during an interview I think. Not sure what that was all about, but seemed to me like a fabricated feud. I think pop culture divas are making this a thing now - fight with other divas, call them out in public and let everyone watch them fake fight over months, just to arbitrarily make up at some point. Creates drama, and that's what all their fans truly crave.

    I was thinking the same thing myself. Feuds (real or not) get people talking and there is nothing a celebrity loves more than hearing their name.

    With regards to Miley--I agree with you. She did exactly what I expected she would do. Her costumes were certainly...interesting. But I think she did a pretty decent job as host.
