I'm still holding out hope that KaDee Strickland gets a nomination for her heartbreaking performance on Private Practice this year but that idiot didn't even have her on his list so now I'm really bummed out. :fragile:

Not that the probability is high, but I don't think he had Sharon Gless up for Burn Notice last year but she received a pretty shocking nomination, so it could still happen.

I seriously can't think of any episode in which Matthew Morrison gave a stand-out performance. He had much weaker material this season compared to last.
Agreed, even with a better storyline he's by far the weak link* on TV's own jeckyl & hyde, Glee ...

... and this coming from a guy who bristles at the cartoon corner they've written Jane Lynch's character into.

*unless you count the writing. :slinkaway


Brian, after Miss Cat has crawled through raw sewage under an Indian restaurant restroom to get to a nuclear waste silo where - in 120 degree heat - she'll sort the male spiney spitting slugs from the female spiney spitting slugs ... we'll talk about her merits over my fake husband Mike Rowe. ;)

Not fair! She has to work with Nigel Lythgoe. For that, she deserves much more than an Emmy. She has probably been sexually harassed more times than she can count. :lol:

Maggie Smith! :cheer2: I do hope she wins. She's my absolute favorite thing about Downton. I'd like to see Elizabeth McGovern win too, though I don't know if she has a chance; she's a lovely actress and that's a great role for her. Loved her line about how having three daughters turned out to be nothing like Little Women. :)

Glad that Harry Potter dance on DWTS got a nomination. It was such a cool dance.

They should win all four of those too (my opinion of course, LOL). :cheer:

Wow, Melissa McCarthy, from Mike & Molly, was nominated for best actress in a comedy series. That's gotta be exciting for her! While I've only seen a couple episodes of Mike & Molly, I always enjoyed her on the Gilmore Girls. :)

Justified FTW! I'm thrilled Walton Goggins got a nod in best supporting actor. He is awesome in this role and Margo Martindale absolutely deserves the supporting actress win. And :cheer2: for Timothy Olyphant.

I can't believe every adult actor on Modern Family was nominated. :lol:

I'm bummed that Hal Holbrook wasn't nominated for a suporting actor role for Sons of Anarchy.

No Emmy for Sean Bean? :fragile: But yay for Peter Dinklage!

Yay Game of Thrones!!!! They better have nominated that show. I would have been pissed if they hadn't. Best friggin TV show I've seen in AGES. And Yay Peter Dinklage for best supporting actor nomination! :cheer:

I'm bummed for Sean Bean as well...and frankly think the whole cast could have taken all the Emmys lol, but that's how it goes.(They did get a nomination for outstanding casting, though...so that's awesome.)

Glad to see Steve Buscemi and Boardwalk Empire get some noms, too. And of course Dexter :).

The Good Wife - nominations for Margulies, Panjabi & Cumming :cheer2: They've been absolutely outstanding. Surprised but happily so to see nearly the whole cast in there!

Modern Family :cheer:

Very happy to see Martha Plimpton in there as well.

:cheer: Dot Jones (coach Bieste on) Glee! The rest of the nominees in that category were 1000% expected. Prediction: Cloris Leachman will win.

:( No Busy Phillips, who most every predictor had on his/her slate

:blah: Over-praise for Modern Family. Nom for pretty much every category possible, and [c'mon now!] four of six supporting actors. I really do love the show, but there are so many other deserving supporting actors out there ... Community and Parks & Recreation alone could each field three nominees. Speaking of which ...

:mitchell: Community = TOTALLY robbed again!

:blah: John Slattery gave the funniest performance of my year in his guest shot on 30 Rock, but was snubbed. At least Wil Arnett was nominated for his perfect now-happy-gay-daddy Devin Banks. (Anyway, it's probably Justin Timberlake's category to lose, anyway, and deservedly so.)

:cheer: A major shake-up in the lead actress comedy category. Kudos to the newbies and to the voters!


And this should make a lot of people (myself included) happy:

Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program 2011
Jeff Probst, Cat Deely, Phil Koeghan, Tom Bergeron, Ryan Seacrest
Yes, this does! :kickass:
