True Detective was the talk of the town throughout its midseason run this year. The fact that both stars, Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, got nods, in addition to Nic Pizzolatto for writing and Cary Fukunaga for directing, should speak for itself. Everything came together to make one heck of a fantastic show, and Emmy voters love honoring first-timers. Still, it's up against Breaking Bad's final season, so this should be a showdown for the ages.
