Re: Emmy Nominations 2010 announced

I definitely want to see Conan O'Brien take the Variety/Comedy/Musical category.

And I was pleasantly surprised to see the otherwise-ignored Prisoner reimagining get a nomination with Ian McKellen.

Otherwise, there really isn't anything else that interests me in the nominations as I was never a Lost fan, Dexter doesn't turn my crank, and Mad Men puts me to sleep whenever Christina Hendricks isn't on screen.

I was hoping Torchwood: Children of Earth might have scored a mini-series nomination, and I was hoping David Tennant and/or Bernard Cribbins might have sneaked through a nomination somewhere for Doctor Who: End of Time. But, Lost and the McKellen nomination notwithstanding, the Emmys once again show they're not interested in recognizing SF programming.

The Good Wife?

What, really?

I saw the first eight episodes of this series while on an airplane. While I like the basic concept of a wife's perspective on her politico husband's infidelities; the show itself is a tired and trite and rigorously cliched law show. It really has no business being mentioned in the same breath as Mad Men and Dexter.

That said I need to catch up on the latest seasons of both of those shows; but I'd probably want either one to win (which one? I'd have to see those seasons now wouldn't I?)

As for comedy: 30 Rock, I don't get it. It reminds me of Scrubs for some vague and probrably irrational reason; anyway, the writing and the humour is both broad and very weak; the same terrible tradition of the crass American comedy movie (of which Tina Fey has starred in more than a few). The Office, never really tried it, detested the Gervais series; I saw an episode of Modern Family and it wasn't good. There never seems to be comedy on TV anymore that I like but likely I'm not looking hard enough. I dunno, I grew up on a steady diet of The Simpsons and Frasier and every TV yuk seems so barren now... well, excluding the absolutely fantastic genius that is the British series The Inbetweeners, but of course that doesn't count.

Re: Emmy Nominations 2010 announced

Love all the Glee love, though I'm sad for Cory Monteith, who's stuck in a role that really should be considered Lead, but Morrison has that spot. He's arguably the best actor on the show, but I suspect he's going have a tough time getting recognition.

Really glad Colfer made it (after "Theatricality" I've seriously soured on his character, but that's not his fault, and he's a terrific actor).

Guest Actor (Comedy) is an interesting category to consider, since you've got two nominees (Jon Hamm, Neil Patrick Harris) who are very popular, and multi-time nominees in the past in a different category (which they're also nominated in this year). Will some of the voters try to use the Guest Actor Emmy as a consolation prize for one of them?

All three of the Mad Men ladies being nominated also makes me happy.

Re: Emmy Nominations 2010 announced

Mad Men is an automatic lock... just because. I don't like the show, but the voters do.

Modern Family is also a guaranteed win.

Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey for actor and actress again... just because change is a bad thing.

Huh, missed this the first time over, but in Trek-related news, Sir Patrick Stewart gets a nominating for Supporting Actor in a Miniseries/Movie for the PBS Hamlet (where he played Claudius).

Nice to see Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton finally receive recognition for their work on Friday Night Lights. Although Zack Gilford not getting a Guest Actor nomination for his work on the FNL episode "The Son" is a fucking joke. He gave a GREAT performance that was raw, emotional, and most of all REAL. Anyone of those Emmy voters who saw that episode and decided not to nominate him are fucking braindead. I never cared for the Guest Actor/Actress Awards. A lot of the time they're just there to ego-stroke a big Hollywood actor for playing themselves in a three-minute television appearance.

Re: Emmy Nominations 2010 announced

While I love LOST in general, I don't think S6 was it's strongest season. There were a few very strong episodes - Ab Aeterno and Happily Ever After in particular were great, as was What They Died For. But I think the ending of the show, while okay, was lacking in some very real ways, and so I can't in good conscious vote for the show as best show of the year. Dexter was much better and would be my choice for best drama series.

I'd love to see some of the LOST actors win some Emmys though. Matthew Fox and Nestor Carbonell in particular had outstanding seasons. I also really love Michael Emerson, but I don't think he had all that much to do in S6 - certainly not enough to warrant another nod - seasons 3 and 4 where Ben Linus's high points, IMO.

Still...John Lithgow was pretty doggone good......

Re: Emmy Nominations 2010 announced

I'm happy to see the love for Dexter, Friday Night Lights and Lost. I'm even really amused and happy with the drama nod for True Blood, which is a show that I love, but I'm not sure that I'd call it the best drama on TV.

I just hope these shows don't get overshadowed by the over-hyped critics fav, Mad Men. I'm not bashing the show, but I tried to watch it and couldn't stay awake. Just not my thing, I guess.

Re: Emmy Nominations 2010 announced

I mainly want "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like" to win Best Commercial. Oh and I'll be rooting for Dexter and Michael C. Hall as per usual. Lost and Matthew Fox were very good as well, but S4 of Dexter really does deserve to finally lock in some wins. Then again, S5 could be the best yet...maybe next year?

Major peeves:

No nominations for Katee Sagal (Sons of Anarchy) or Zach Levi (Chuck - which should also get a nomination) and while I love Michael Emerson, maybe that second Lost nomination should have gone to Nestor Carbonnel or Josh Holloway. "The End" wasn't Lost's best ep this year - how about "Ab Aeterno" instead?

Lost and the McKellen nomination notwithstanding, the Emmys once again show they're not interested in recognizing SF programming.
SF needs to come up to the level of the shows that do get nominated. Caprica might have a shot someday if they keep improving. Anyway if True Blood can get nominated, an SF show along the same lines should have a chance.

John Lithgow was nominated for Best Guest Actor, so he isn't competing with any of the men from LOST.

Elizabeth Mitchell was nominated for Best Guest Actress for the role of Juliet on LOST, which I think is awesome. I love her character.

True Blood won't win anything. It didn't get a single acting or writing nomination. It only got nominated for series because it's the biggest show on HBO right now. I'm surprised it go in, since I consider the first season to be a guilty pleasure.
