I am an undergraduate student of English literature. I read a lot and am picky about my anime. So let's have some tea and get acquainted, after all we all will be together one day, dancing in the circles of hell. A hell of my making.

True Detective has TWELVE Emmy Nominations, including Best Drama Show
BOTH Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson have been nominated for Best Actor in a Drama series
Other strong contenders in the Best Drama category are Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones, but even with my bias I am pretty sure that neither come close to the level of excellence that True Detective brings to the table, technical or otherwise.
Also, I don't really say that Matthew McConaughey HAS to win every award, but if he does not then awards are pretty much meaningless. Fanboying to the Extreme
Now, to business.
Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series - 2014
The entire format of the show jumping between 3 different time spans and doing it cohesively and the 4th episode 6 minute unbroken shot. Technical marvel, this show, and that too on a limited budget. Should win this, but I never paid much attention to Breaking Bad or Orange is the New Black in that respect anyway, people tell me OITNB is pretty good.
Outstanding Art Direction For A Contemporary Or Fantasy Series (Single-Camera) - 2014
While the Carcosa set-piece is key, the Louisiana location was exploited beautifully to the maximum. I'm not sure how it would hold up against other shows like Game of Thrones which have better budgets and more freedom being fantasy stories, but True Detective is a contender for its smart use of a limited location.
Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series - 2014
Again, not a sure-shot winner here, but a very strong contender. True Detective might win if you consider all the intelligent references it makes, the writing is layered, and the dialogue and narration give it a very beautiful aspect of fore-shadowing which makes it a pleasure to re-watch. They didn't go for the normal fireworks high points with a very difficult story to pull off in just 8 episodes. They should win in a sane world, but if they don't I wouldn't be that disappointed. The world was just not ready.
Outstanding Casting For A Drama Series - 2014
JUST HAND IT OVER ALREADY! I know strong critics of the show, but nobody who has seen even 10 minutes of the show can deny the sheer perfection that Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and every other actor, big part or small, is. They don't win this? It will be a disgrace.
Outstanding Cinematography For A Single-camera Series - 2014
Once again, the 4th episode with its phenomenal 6-minute unbroken shot wins this for True Detective on its own, add to that the entire Carcosa set-piece of the last episode and you have yourself a winner.
Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series - 2014
Again, hand it over please. Boardwalk Empire is the only one which can cause major discomfort in that area. House of Cards is good too, but nah. True Detective should win this.
Outstanding Drama Series - 2014
Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series - 2014 (Woody Harrelson)
Now if only Matthew McConaughey wasn't here I would have said a Kevin Spacey victory would be nice too. Not any more. Woody is great and in another place he could have won. This time he has to make way for his IRL best buddy.
Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series - 2014 (Matthew McConaughey)
Outstanding Main Title Design - 2014
I don't know, I really don't know. But I do have a desktop wallpaper right out of the True Detective title right now.
Outstanding Makeup For A Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic) - 2014
I wouldn't bet on it, but that villain and his sister looked rather sick, and those troubled kids? Creepy make-up job.
Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score) - 2014
They should definitely win this. Every episode has its own ending tying in with the episode, and the music has great variety. That opening track, and all those closing tracks, something HAS to win here.
