So it's not the nominees list we wanted. Here's how to make the best out of this year's Emmy Awards.
Few moments are more important in television than Emmy season. Like, how will we know which new shows are good, if the Academy doesn’t tell us? Alternatively, if your favorite show got snubbed this year, you’ll probably still be watching with your best ironic sneer, being all: “This got nominated over Orphan Black?” Hypothetically, of course.
So, whether your shows got nominated or not, here is the definitive guide to watching the Emmys this year. Works for beginners, as well as advanced TV maniacs.
We could have done with a couple more nods for Orange, tbh.
Jay's lived a less than honest life, sleeping around with women he could never care about, fritting away money he doesn't have in casinos and at races and drinking away his problems every night at seedy bars. However, when he meets Daisy, a mentally unstable but harmless young girl who has lived virtually her whole life indoors sheltered from the harms the real world can bring, his life begins to change and he endeavours to take her along to his wealthy parents' house on the weekend of his brother's wedding to prove to them that he can change his ways. Having never tasted a drop of alcohol in her life, kissed a boy, gone to school or owned a pair of shoes, Daisy also sees her life turn into an adventure as she seemingly becomes the only one who can change this man's stony heart and force him to love her.

She (Elfman) says they had a long-term relationship and she just got a little upset there at the end.

"Swimfan" is the kind of thriller that requires, for the plot to move forward, a complete absence of common sense on the part of the hero -- in this case a high school swim team star (Jesse Bradford) with a sultry, psycho, jailbait stalker (Erika Christensen).
No matter what crazy thing the deranged girl does to him -- leave her panties in his car, email him 81 times in a day, spike his urine sample with steroids, frame him for murder -- Bradford never tells a single person what's really going on because if anyone was watching his back, there would be no movie.
Which isn't to say "Swimfan" doesn't have its guilty pleasures. OK, one guilty pleasure. Christensen -- Michael Douglas's smack-addicted daughter in "Traffic," a beautiful girl with the heart-shaped face and sly, portentous eyes -- is such a fun, wicked, spiteful villainess that she keeps the flick afloat all by herself.
