Damn You EMMY!!!

Despite the title, I'm actually quite content with the nominees for the most part, I'm busy at the moment so I can't analyse the nominees as I wish so I'll just break it down quickly, and be back LATER with an in-depth look. Maybe.
      
THE GOOD
*Amy Poehler has her Emmy nomination. I cannot explain to you how happy this made me. It is easily my favourite nomination in a year of mixed stuff.
*Lea Michele, Kristin Chenoweth and the cast of Glee have been successful. It's a good life, and I'm glad for them all.

*Sharon Gless has an Emmy NOD!!! Burn Notice only gets one nod, but this nod makes me happy (even though I wish it had gotten more).
    
*My usual favourites are back again - Dexter, Damages, Tony Shalhoub, JANE KRAKOWSKI!!!!

THE BAD
*One nomination for Entourage, two nominations for Grey's Anatomy, one nomination for Desperate Housewives? Piven? Wilson? Oh? Cross? My heart bleeds, not really but you get the point. Those snubs hurt me.
   
*Two and a Half Men is still getting love, and I don't know WHY!

*Mariska Hargitay. I hate you.
    
* No love for supporting players in The Office and Parks & Recreation? Really?
     
THE BLAH
* The Big Bang Theory. I just don't get it.
    
*Mad Men. Other than Slattery I'm really not interested any more...I can't say why?
   
*Lost...ummm, I don't know. I don't get this one either, and no Naveen Andrews? Le sigh.
     
Okay. You go? Good? Bad? Blah? Shout it out below.

I'm sad too that no one from the cast of "the Office" got any nominations. (that's my favorite show)

Luke said...

Ditto on the Poehler excitement! It's a relief they at least managed that one. But I'm truly confuddled about the lack of Mad Men love, Andrew! What about the Elisabeth/Christina/January trifecta of greatness?!

whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? :)


how can you not be interested in Man Men anymore? it had the best season yet! i couldn't get enough.

and still you continue defending DH and Grey's (which I still watch but not ashamed to say it stinks)

The Awesome: Conan getting a nod and Leno being snubbed. Mad Men and Breaking Bad getting their normal nods.

The Meh: Big Bang Theory don't care, never will.

Andrew: Encore Entertainment said...

tom jenna especially deserved a nod.

luke, alex boys...i don't know if it's me not catching EVERY episode but i just don't love it. i don't get all the episodes of dexter and i still think it's excellent, so it's probably not that.

and re grey's the show has been poorer, but oh, ramirez and wilson are still great. and perhaps its residual anger that when they had the chance 1,2,3 times to give those women awards they passed them over for uninspired choices. [oh and i just wanted marcia cross to be nominated:)]

fitz obviously i need to start seeing breaking bad

If Nick Offerman can't get a nomination then what does it all mean?

Alex in Movieland said...

what is this with not getting all the episodes? Just like Lost, Mad Men needs to be seen episode to episode to fully make sense.

from what I know Dexter is mostly (mostly!) a procedural, just like Grey's or House. that's a different ball game

I'm glad that The Big Bang Theory wasn't nominated for Best Comedy (some people actually think that it is an oversight). The show focuses way too much on Jim Parson's character for him to even be considered a supporting actor. It has ruined what started out as a good sitcom.
