What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

Originally posted 08/20/2014 07:10PM

To avoid a conflict with Sunday Night Football, NBC moved the 2014 Emmy Awards telecast up a month, to August 25. But in swerving clear of the football juggernaut, the Emmys steered right into the lane of the landmark cultural occasion of late August: the MTV VMAs, scheduled for one day prior.

It got us thinking: What if we took things to their logical conclusion and handed MTV control of the Emmys, as well?

Using categories from both the VMAs and their summertime counterpart, the MTV Movie Awards, we've imagined what would happen if the cable network was in charge of handing out trophies for everything that's on TV, not just music videos.

Why Peter Dinklage Should Win the Emmy for Game of Thrones

Originally posted 08/22/2014 04:35PM

How do you stand out among the dozens of cast members on Game of Thrones (fully two-thirds of whom seem to be gruff, bearded men)? As Tyrion Lannister, the wise-cracking dwarf played by Peter Dinklage, proves, it helps to not take things too seriously.

While the HBO fantasy series' assorted lords and ladies backstab their way to courtly domination, Tyrion is one of the the few characters who sees the game of thrones as the cosmic joke that is it – even as he remains one of its best players.

Dinklage, 45, who's nominated for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series, is the audience stand-in, and his withering wit helps bring a show full of dragons and ice zombies down to a human level.
