Look, the last season of Breaking Bad was stellar television, but like... it's been rewarded before. Award shows annoy me for this very reason - they very rarely recognize truly new, different, or interesting content.

I am glad that Cary Joji Fukunaga won for an episode of True Detective. I know people had mixed reactions to the show, but I think he's a really talented director and has a great knack for really evoking a strong sense of place and atmosphere. I LOVED his adaptation of Jane Eyre with Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska.
