    Game of thrones rocks!

  2. Antonio July 10, 2014

    Wow at these noms. The Emmys have always been diverse with their noms. It’s always been about the performances, writing and directing and that’s why they’re the best awards show in my opinion. What other awards show do you would nominate an transgenered actor/actress and not it be a big media specatcle… Can’t say the Oscars or the Grammys or especially MTV or BET

  3. Proud-Arianator July 10, 2014

    Why doesn’t the Vampire Diaries get nominated?

    • Beygency July 10, 2014

      Because nobody respects the CW network. It’s unfortunate because Nina Diabrov (sp?) is AMAZING in her role & constantly delivers excellent work. The industry snobs don’t give it a chance though

      • Proud-Arianantor July 10, 2014

        More than amazing you can’t deny that she kills
        The roles that she plays
        I mean playing two people with different personalities
        Can be challenging

    Hey there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

    The problem of caring for the elderly has surfaced since the 1980s after China implemented the one-child policy to control its population.
