2013 Primetime Emmy Nominations: Comedy

EmmyLast week, the nominations for the 65th Primetime Emmys were announced. As always, they were met with excitement from some and disappointment from others. Every year, it seems that network comedies are less represented in the nominations, but standout favorites like 30 Rock, Modern Family and The Big Bang Theory continue to hold their own against the influx of cutting edge cable comedies. It will be interesting to see if Modern Family (the perennial favorite) or 30 Rock (which just celebrated its final season) can win voters over enough to take home trophies at this year's ceremony.

Below, I have listed all the nominees in the Comedy categories. Who would you like to win? Was your favorite snubbed in thi...

A Robot World

robotThis weekend, Pacific Rim, the next big budget summer movie, hits theaters. Featuring giant robots created and powered by humans to fight an invading alien force, this is just the latest in a long line of films featuring robots. Robots have long fascinated screenwriters because they mirror all parts of the human condition, allowing for social commentary from a new perspective. Often created by man to accomplish tasks, robots can be sweet or terrifying, and can quickly progress from obedient to vindictive. Whether man made or alien, innocent or destructive, robots have captivated audiences for years. 

If you’re in the mood for a robot movie and can’t make it to the theater, browse the HCPL catalog and request a DVD today!
