Buzfeed made a couple of suggestions of two actors - in the top 6 - who should receive a first time Emmy nomination.
Take a wild guess at which of our two favorites they recommended:
No disrespect meant to perennial faves, but the increasing predictability of the outstanding acting Emmy nominations has lent the annual awards show a sense of repetition.
Oh, cool, Bryan Cranston. Neat, Claire Danes. Yes, hello again, Dame Maggie Smith.
And while those nominations would definitely be warranted again this year, it’s time to inject a much needed sense of surprise into the Aug. 25 proceedings by honoring these 31 deserving first-time nominees, presented below in alphabetical order:
Hugh Dancy, Hannibal
While Mads Mikkelsen has the showier role (playing a sociopathic cannibal will do that for ya), Dancy was tasked with the grander challenge this season as Will Graham found himself imprisoned for the first stretch of episodes — forcing Dancy to find fresh acting notes while working in the same confined space — and lying through his teeth for much of that time.
As a result, Dancy was required to layer multiple truths into every scene, offering him a unique opportunity to play with perception and the outward manipulation of his scene partners. The result was a decadent blend of mischief and mental instability. —J.W.
Joel Kinnaman, The Killing
While Season 2 put a major damper on everyone’s enthusiasm for this once-addictive crime drama, the one thing that hasn’t changed throughout the show’s run is Kinnaman’s hypnotic performance. Season 3 featured a whole new Detective Holder. Clean, responsible, and screaming internally, the actor was a model of duality, seamlessly blending Holder’s desire for change with the duty he now felt to keep up appearances. A truly fascinating portrait of a man on the edge. —J.W.
A Watch Dogs mod created by Guru3D forum user The Worse gives the Windows PC version of the game a makeover akin to its original appearance at E3 2012.
The video above demonstrates the game’s E3 appearance vs. what it looks like on PCs today. With the mod, many of the game’s original E3 assets have been restored and reflections, lighting, lens flares and weather effects are altered.

"Being an actor is a good way to earn a living. And to meet fabulous people. It’s great to live very comfortably. I’ve been lucky, I’ve had a lot of fun with great roles, but it is true that if I were extremely rich, I would stop and I would go to play football on a beach in the Caribbean with my children."
