Missing golden opportunities is nothing new for an awards show that celebrates TV, but never makes for good TV.
Bryan Cranston was "humbled" to win his third Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama Series. Winners, please stop using that cliche. The only thing less humbling than winning an award is winning the same award three times.
