If there is any justice, Breaking Bad will do a hell of a lot better than that.

I had posted them (someone transcribed them on another site), but it took up a lot of space and cluttered the page. Will link to them instead.

Here

It's busy and cluttered there too, of course.

No can do, Reza - it's 198 pages.

They got rid of the Individual Performance in a Variety/Music Program category and a loophole in the rules allows sketch performers in comedy-variety shows to submit in the Supporting in a Comedy category (but not Lead)

Yes, it's ridiculous and insane.
