    This is terrific news ! TB deserves all the awards it can get. I hope Stephen Moyer wins; the only real competition in my mind is Bryan Cranston from Breaking Bad ( another great show! ). It would be great if TB can garner a few more awards. Then even more people would tune in, and it would be an even bigger hit !

      Hi iamtrue2bill,
      Its funny but some time ago Stephen was asked what shows he loves to watch (other than True Blood…LOL) and he said he thought “Breaking Bad” was a rockin’ great show and would love to be a guest star! Now here he is up against Bryan for Best Actor.
      Just FYI.
      And I have my fingers crossed for Stephen too!!!!!!!
