This year's Creative Arts ceremony, just over one week before the primetime awards are given out, is no exception, given some of the surprises that we saw Saturday (Sept. 10).Whether these are any indication of what might happen next Sunday is anybody's guess. But it's sure as heck fun to speculate, right?"Boardwalk Empire" dominates: It wasn't a big stretch to think that the academy voters were going to fall in love with "Boardwalk Empire." It's a sweeping period piece shot on an epic scale, with the pedigree of both Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter behind it. But given the love the academy has had for "Mad Men" during the last three years, it was a surprise to see "Boardwalk" dominate most of the technical awards for drama, including... //

Futurama Preview: "Overclockwise"

Futurama's sixth season is sadly winding down. " Overclockwise " is another Bender-centric episode which sees the robotic character increase his processing power by so much that he becomes "god-like". It looks like robots will be taking over the world after all.  Due to his super intelligence,  Bender  is no longer willing to aid in his friends' problems. That petty stuff is beneath him, as you'll see in the clip below.  //

First Look: Futurama Turns Japanese For Season Finale

Futurama was recently picked up for 26 new episodes, which will air on Comedy Central through 2013.
