    Damages was robbed for a few nominations. I thought Rose Byrne would have secured a nomination and Chris Messina and Dylan Baker should have received one as well.

    I know this may be an unpopular opinion but I thought that outside the Christmas special season 2 of Downton Abbey was seriously disappointing. I loved season 1, but season 2 was absolutely soapy and ridiculous.

    And that still didn't come out quite right so if anyone wants to post another one have at it!
    I am stoked for "Sherlock"," Luther" and Merritt Wever from a first look. I'm glad that cast members on "Downton Abbey" are nominated too.

    Annoyed at the lack of Community. Seriously, they nominate Jon Cryer instead of Joel McHale?

    But I was happy to see Mayim Bialik there. Big Bang Theory isn't that amazing, but Amy Farrah Fowler is awesome. I really hope they use her 'I'm a princess!' scene where Sheldon gives her a tiara for her clip.

    I misread Tom Berenger as Tom Bergeron. Now I've got this fantastic mental image of Bergeron dressed up as a Hatfield. (Or a McCoy.)

    Happy for Sherlock and Maggie Smith and Michelle Dockery! Can't be quite so happy for Hugh Bonneville, as the Actor in a Drama category has neither of my Person of Interest boys in it. (Yeah, I know, Emmy doesn't like procedurals. It's still annoying.)

    It's kind of odd to see American Horror Story and Missing listed in the miniseries categories. Is it based on number of episodes aired? A quick check shows AHS showed 12 episodes in its first season, Missing 10.

    Also, I didn't think Missing was a miniseries. I thought it was a show that got cancelled. I liked the show, and was not happy that it ended, but miniseries?

    Good to see Christine Baranski finally noticed for "The Good Wife". She was amazing last season. Archie Panjabi had very little to do (a crime), not sure how she got in there again (but then again, they nominate John Cryer and Tina Fey every year, so)...

    I floved "Game Change". Really well acted, no matter what your politics, so some great noms there. Who knew Woody Harrleson had those kind of acting chops when he started on 'Cheers'?

    Shame Charles Dance didn't get a nod for his work in "Game of Thrones". Loved his Tywin Lannister this season, he's added lots of grey shading to that character and his interactions with Maisie Williams (Arya) were fun to watch.

    Homeland Best show on TV.

    Christine Baranski was awesome and her nomination was well deserved.

    "New Girl" and "Happy Endings" were robbed of comedy series nominations. Damon Wayans Jr should totally have gotten a supporting comedy nod (actually, the whole cast is fantastic; IMO, it's the funniest show on TV).

    What category they choose to put themselves in is up to the producers. They must have thought they would have had a better chance on this category than in the drama.

    The Emmys have always had tunnel vision with most nominations. There are many WTF every year.

    Not that I think they deserved any based on the writing this season, but Glee got almost bubkus! No nominations in any major categories this year, but the writing has been so inconsistent this season so I'm not surprised at all, though I do say if there's one person I'm pulling for it's Dot-Marie Jones, she has been phenomenal this year and she damn well better win this year! Was also hoping Two Broke Girls might have gotten something but they were shut out as well.

    Betty White is everywhere!

    I'm happy that Who Do You Think You Are? was nominated. I love that show and I'm constantly surprised but what they are able to uncover.

    Funny that The Voice was nominated, but not AI or X Factor.

    I'm surprised The Good Wife wasn't nominated for Best Drama or for Best Writing. They did get a bunch of acting nominations, including guest actors. The show is very well acted, but I think it's more than acting that makes the show so great.

    I'm glad to see Connie Britton get a nomination because I thought she was robbed when she was on Friday Night Lights.

    I'm very happy for AHS even though I'm also at the miniseries designation.

    And really excited for Sherlock!

    Me too! Glad that Benedict Cumberbatch (most awesome name ever!) got a nomination.

    I wasn't that much of a fan of season 2 of Downton Abbey (I loved season one) but I'm glad about all the acting nominations. I wish either Parks and Recreation or Community got the nods in the comedy series category. Also, Jon Cryer over Joel McHale? Ridiculous.

    Very savvy to pitch American Horror Story as a miniseries - but I don't think Missing quite qualifies
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?

    I like the nominations in the Outstanding Drama category but my problem is that this category could have been easily expanded to include other shows that were good enough for nomination. "Revenge" and "The Good Wife" come to mind: I wish they would amend the procedure much in the same way the Academy Awards does for Best Picture. They could do this for Outstanding Comedy as well. As others have pointed out a number of comedies that may be just as good as those nominated could be included.

    I like the guy who plays Mr. Carter on Downton Abbey, but he seems sort of random for an acting nomination. Did he really have that much to do? I also thought Season 2 was weak, so a lot of the Downton Abbey nominations have a too late to the party feel to me.
