Happy Thursday, boys and girls! It’s day 1 of Comic-Con, but the entertainment gods decided to mess with us by making it also be the morning that the Emmy nominations were announced. Since Dan and I were in the same city at the same time as the HitFix video team, we decided to sit down for a quick chat about today’s nominations, including the quality glut that led to so many “snubs,” exactly how good a day it was for Netflix, which nominations (and omissions) surprised us the most, and more.
As I’ve said, we should be recording our annual road trip podcast in the traditional audio form on Sunday night as Dan drives me to the airport. Look for that sometime Monday. In the meantime, here we are in bright technicolor from the couch in my hotel room. The glitz! The glamor! The t-shirts!
UPDATE: This is now the full 17-minute-plus version. Enjoy.
