    Not a whole lot of broadcast TV representation in the Drama areas, only The Good Wife and Harry's Law seem included.

    Honestly though, Don't care too much about the Emmys. I'm not going to watch or not watch something based on this. I wonder, in this day and age with so many choices if any of these shows get any kind of a ratings bump because they won an Emmy.

    Happy for most but would have been happier if Laura Linney stayed in the running, The Walking Dead got some acting nominations, Game of Thrones got MORE acting noms and

    ...Katey Segal was not snubbed again.

    Has best reality host been a category before? If not, they must have created it just so they could give it to Betty White.

    Yes it has for several years.
    Press are reporting the big snub is Jeff Probst not being included.
    Apparently he has been nominated every year.

    I don't know about ridiculous. Looking at the Best Drama, who would you bump for Justified? That is a great lineup! Dinklage submits himself, so you can't blame Emmy for that. Walking Dead? Please.

    I was impressed with some good Noms. Jared Harris for Mad Men? Nice job. Homeland getting Noms. Good. If there is any missing person it's Mandy Patinkin for Homeland in Supporting. That is about the only thing that seems crazy.

    Parenthood got a nomination! Yay! Just for guest actor, but still.

    I don't know why NBC gives it such a hard time

    Is it really that good? I might give it a try.

    Meanwhile, I usually hate the Emmys, but I'll probably give it a look this year.

    I've only watched maybe 1-2 of any of the shows listed. (meaning on a regular weekly basis)

    Back in the day I had pretty much been watching 100% of the shows nominated.

    It's not a snub if the host is truly awful at the job.

    I agree. Me pointing out that she wasn't nominated and calling her by her derisive nickname was my way of saying she is an awful host.

    Not just nominated; he's won all four years of this award's existence.

    If the entire Modern Family cast can be supporting actors, then I see no problem with Dinklage being supporting actor. He certainly has way less screen time than any of the Modern Family actors.

    It's interesting that American Horror Story went into the miniseries category. Smart move I guess!

    Guest actor in a Drama is stacked with good choices! Wow!

    Aside from the annual inclusion of BBT in the noms, I feel like these are some of the more accurate/fair nominations I've seen...
