True Detective, season finale
Okay, so we know all about The Yellow King and Carcosa, but it seems there's still more reason to keep talking about "True Detective." With the show an undeniable critical smash and audience hit, the next stop for program is on the awards trail, where it seems like a no-brainer for a slew of Emmy nominations.

Yep, the 2013/2014 awards season has come to an end.
