I opened and closed Emmy Awards update from Reuters by promising more Emmy coverage.
I promised more about tonight's awards in 'Orange is the New Black' and 'Cosmos' already big Emmy winners. I'll follow through with that promise later. Right now, I have two updates from Reuters on the ceremony that I've included in tonight's Overnight News Digest on Daily Kos.Instead of writing something original, I'm going to be a good environmentalist and repurpose a comment I left on another diarist's Overnight News Digest on Daily Kos.
Stay tuned for more later.
First, Reuters with Emmys exalt old favorites over TV's shiny newcomers By Mary Milliken and Eric Kelsey in LOS ANGELES Tue Aug 26, 2014 10:07pm EDT.
(Reuters) - For all the talk about newcomers raising the game of television, the industry on Monday chose to bestow its top Emmys on the long-running shows "Breaking Bad" and "Modern Family" and long-time television actors who held off challenges from film stars.Tipsy Bartender celebrated the final Emmy win for the show by posting the recipe for How to make a Breaking Bad Blue Margarita - Tipsy Bartender on his Facebook page.
"Breaking Bad," AMC's unlikely tale of a teacher-turned-drug kingpin Walter White, won the night's biggest honor, the Emmy for best drama series, for the second year in a row while lead Bryan Cranston took best drama actor for the fourth time in that role.
It was a nostalgic vote of sorts for the series after it ended on the fifth season with widespread acclaim and devoted binge-watching fans. It held off the ballyhooed HBO anthology, "True Detective," the bayou thriller starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey and fellow film star Woody Harrelson, who Cranston beat.
Here's one for all the Breaking Bad fans of the world....THE BREAKING BAD BLUE MARGARITA! Everything thing is blue to give it a truly illicit feel. This drink has some to the most unique ice ever; designed and colored to resemble meth! It's a devilishly good cocktail. It was created by Morgan from the blog "HostTheToast."Hey, at least they talked about TV in addition to mixing the drink.
