To have a say in who wins on the biggest night in TV, you need to have a job in TV.

Only members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences vote on the Primetime Emmys, which is why prestige shows with relatively tiny audiences always seem to win (ahem, Mad Men.)

Other formats, like at the lightweight People's Choice Awards, MTV Movie Awards and a few others, use fan voting to pick winners. But the problem there is that superfans engage in organized ballot-box stuffing, which is why relatively crummy shows and movies with rabid fanbases always seem to win (ahem, Twilight.) Read more...

300 Million Cubic Meters of Magma Are on the Move Within Icelandic Volcano

The Bardarbunga volcano in Iceland continues to show signs of stirring, but it's unclear what type of eruption, if any occurs at all, will take place. According to the latest information from the Icelandic Meteorological Office and other Icelandic government agencies, more than 700 earthquakes were recorded from midnight through 10 a.m. local time, indicating that hot magma was moving within the volcano, which lies beneath a glacier

Most of the new earthquakes have centered along the tip of a dike of newly formed rock that the magma is creating as it flows northeastward, approaching the edge of the Vatnajokull (Dyngjujökull) glacier, which is the largest glacier in Europe. According to the statement on the Met Office website, the dike beneath the glacier, like a freshly laid magma pipeline, is now about 22 miles long and contains a whopping 300 million cubic meters of magma, or about 79 billion gallons.

‘Mad Men’ at the Emmys: Can Hamm, Moss & Hendricks Get the Groove Back?

Mad Men was on a roll going into the 2012 Emmy Awards. For the previous four years, the period drama had beat out, among others, the final season of Lost, the final season of Friday Night Lights and the debut season of HBO phenomenon Game of Thrones and walked away with arguably the prize of the night, Outstanding Drama Series.

But 2012 proved to be the upset — Homeland scored the trophy, breaking the streak that still has yet to start again. (Breaking Bad won in 2013.)

Moreover, Mad Men has not won any Emmy since 2011.

What's with the drought? There are theories. Read more...

‘Game of Thrones’ at the Emmys: Are Losses Coming?

Frustrated Game of Thrones fans must face the fact: There's little chance the show will win the major award it so deserves at Monday night's Emmys. Sorry to behead your dreams.

Not since Peter Dinklage's 2011 win for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama has the show — a bonafide ratings and cultural hit — won a Primetime Emmy. Nothing for writing, nothing for directing and nothing for the show's actors.

And considering this year's crop of competition — the show is up against Breaking Bad in all five major categories its up for, including Outstanding Drama Series — that's not likely to change Monday night. Read more...
