Male actors
Best Series, Best Actor pattern this year...
Each of the Best Actor awards went to the male lead in the series or TV movie that won in the Best Series/TV movie category. Andy Samberg won for Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Best Comedy), Bryan Cranston won for Breaking Bad (Best Drama), and Michael Douglas won for Behind the Candelabra (Best TV Movie/Miniseries). Not only did none of the female leads for the winning series win, but none of them were nominated. With that said, most — if not all — of the females in the winning series are supporting characters.

Also among the winners...
Jacqueline Bisset won Best Supporting Actress in a Miniseries for the BBC series Dancing on the Edge, which aired on Starz, stateside. Meanwhile, Robin Wright beat out her Netflix competition Taylor Schilling for Best Actress in a TV Series, Drama. That was a tough category too, as she was also up against Scandal’s Kerry Washington, The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies and Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany. I would’ve liked to have seen House of Cards take home more than one award, but it was great to see Wright representing the Netflix drama.

And that about covers the TV categories. You can view the full list of winners here, and check out the list of movie winners here.
