Emmy Predictions and a Contest


Emmy-Awards[1]The Emmys are on tonight and it’s one of my favorite award shows.  This year I am particularly invested, because I just came off of a serious Netflix binge and I am now officially a fan of House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.  Both shows have been nominated in multiple categories.  There are some pretty good races this year, so I think it’ll be an exciting night – not to mention all the fashion.  I’m hosting a contest, too.  I’m breaking down all my predictions for the major categories, but I also want to know who or what you’re pulling for and/or think will win.  Share your picks in the comment section (or e-mail me  The person with the most predicted wins will score a $20 Starbucks card!  Rumor has it that the Pumpkin Spiced Latte will be launched any day now!  I need your guesses by 8:00 P.M. tonight.  Be sure to check back tomorrow to see if you’ve won and read my Emmy commentary.   Continue reading Emmy Predictions and a Contest

I Did Not See It Coming

The Good Wife

Spoiler Alert!

I was in such of state of shock after watching this week’s episode of The Good Wife, entitled “Dramatics, Your Honor.” Dramatic, indeed.  I was truly blown away.  I did not see it coming and I heard that phrase uttered over and over by other fans.  I’m a little embarrassed by how strongly I reacted because I was quite literally shaking and when the scenes for next week rolled, so did my tears.  I’m a grown woman, and I took this way too personal.  Continue reading I Did Not See It Coming
