Envelope Emmy Week: Screening series and roundtables kick off the season

Don draper With the Emmy race poised to shift into high gear, the Los Angeles Times will kick things off with Envelope Emmy Week -- five days of television series screenings, cast Q&As and roundtable panels beginning June 1. 

Matt Weiner's "Mad Men" will launch the screening series programming as stars Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks and Kiernan Shipka join creator and executive producer Weiner for a lively discussion about the turns the AMC series took last season -- the new agency's in trouble, Don Draper's remarrying(!), Joan is pregnant and Sally, well Sally's growing up awfully fast.   

On June 2, William H. Macy and the cast of Showtime's "Shameless" will screen the series and talk about what could be television's most dysfunctional family ever, or maybe just its worst father ever.

Olyphant Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins and the rest of the "Justified" gang gather on June 6 to take us behind the scenes of the highly acclaimed show about the U.S. marshal.

Emmy week continues on June 7 and 8 with two roundtables. Up first is Alternative Families in which an eclectic mix of actors will look at what "family" means on TV these days -- from biker gangs to vampire kingdoms -- and how their on-screen relationships help them and challenge them as actors.

The Geek TV roundtable on June 8 will look at the pop culture impact of shows that target the fanboy audience, as well as characters who embrace their geek status as a badge of honor.

After each panel, check back on Awards Tracker for video highlights of the night's discussions.

Guild members can get additional details and RSVP to attend any of the events at

'Justified' star Timothy Olyphant: 'Going home isn't as easy as it sounds' [Video]

Justified"Justified" was robbed at the Emmys last year. Many of us kudo-watchers believed it would receive nominations for TV drama series and lead actor Timothy Olyphant, but it was snubbed. Don't make the mistake of writing "Justified" off this year, however. Sometimes TV series take a while to get on Emmy voters' radar, and this program, most TV critics agree, got even better in Season 2. Peabody Awards voters recognized that and just gave it a top prize.

One of the chief differences this season is the attitude of its protagonist: U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens, as played by Olyphant. As the series began in 2010, he was booted from the police force in Miami and reassigned to his childhood town in poor, dreary Kentucky. He rebelled at first, yearning to break free from the gothic ghosts of his youth, but he had a curious change of heart in in the second season, even hooking up again with his ex-wife.

"Sometimes going home is just not as easy as it sounds," Olyphant said in our webcam chat. He recalled what the creators of "Justified" pondered while weighing what might happen: "What if, at this point in our story, Raylan wants to be here? And then what that leads to is –- what makes that difficult? There's no drama, there's no show if it's not difficult." Check out more of his comments below.
