Best: 'Mr. Robot' Winning Over Serious Heavy Hitters
Sam Esmail's inventive techno thriller came out of nowhere this year, singlehandedly bringing the benighted USA Network into the prestige-drama game. In its very first season, the cyberparanoia series beat out Emmy darling Game of Thrones and popular favorite Empire for the statuette, proving that groundbreaking cinematography and unapologetically strange storytelling can indeed win the day. Here's hoping that Mr. Robot's magnetic, bug-eyed star, Rami Malek, can nab a win of his own next time around.
