2014 Primetime Emmy

Qhich is coming to its finale season, did a series of cool period inspired ads for their FYC advertisement. Breaking Bad is still in the running with their unforgettable finale. A pleasant surprise for me is Orange is The New Black finally becoming one of the contenders for….comedy (though i personally think its a little too intense to be called comedy). I wonder if it would be able to dethroned 4 year consecutive winner, Modern Family.
