PopWatch readers are way more important (to PopWatch writers at least) than Emmy voters, so it’s high time we figured out which people and/or which series would take home statuettes this year in a fictional Academy of Television Arts and Sciences controlled by you. We’ll roll out the bigger categories next week, but for now: Outstanding Main Title Design! Vote for the most deserving sequence after the break.
Bored to Death (HBO) Is it lame if I say my favorite part about this is that the “rustling pages” sound effect reminds me of my Mac triumphantly emptying the trash?
Human Target (Fox) I like these opening credits more than I like the show. I am so sorry about the huge, loud BOOM at 0:34; it almost warrants a NSFW warning. So: NSFW.
Nurse Jackie (Showtime) Probably mind-blowing if you’re high. The coffee cup swallows the text. Her eyes don’t follow the floating ring. Wha’ happened???
The Pacific (HBO) This thing is like two hours long! Hey, charcoal.
Temple Grandin (HBO) Below is the trailer, not the main titles, but you get the idea.
