[YOUTUBE "kB8y4Zp9UNc"] Has a stint in Iowa finally made Hannah a happy, well-adjusted person?

Since this is the world of Girls, it looks like the answer is no – but some time in the Midwest apparently does have its perks for Lena Dunham's perennially struggling character, according to the newly released trailer for the fourth season of the hit HBO show.

If you think Lena Dunham's afraid of a few critical assessments of her colorful Emmys gown, think again.

What If MTV Ran the Emmy Awards?

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.

Massive spoilers below!

Why Lena Dunham Deserves the Emmy for Girls

Originally posted 08/24/2014 06:25PM



Her show is certainly polarizing, and she has the public just as torn. But the girl has guts, and the Emmys have recognized that. (She's nominated for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series, her third straight nod.)

Girls season 3 saw Lena Dunham's Hannah Horvath go through a series of career crises – (spoilers) losing her ebook deal, fired from a job at GQ – and some personal problems with her three besties and boyfriend Adam. Though often criticized as self-centered (which she still was this season), she was also dealt a few harsh reality checks, losing her grandmother and making an important decision about her future.

Why Adam Driver Deserves the Emmy for Girls, in One Scene

Originally posted 08/24/2014 05:55PM



Adam Driver's performance as Adam Sackler shows that Girls isn't just about the girls.

In season 1, he was – let's face it – pretty darn weird. Season 2 gave us more of him, although in some not-so-nice situations with the girl he was dating. But as the boyfriend of Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham), he proved himself to be loyal, loving and the one constant in her somewhat messy life.

It was actually kind of hard to watch Adam pull away from Hannah this season – (spoilers) he got a job on Broadway and began spending more time focusing on work and less on her. But it was also enjoyable watching him come into his own, working hard to keep Hannah happy while finally finding personal success.
