Thanks for that.

What about "Missing" (Naomi Judd got a nomination) being under Miniseries, too.

That was cancelled, not a pre-set miniseries.

Did the storyline wrap-up at the end of episode 10? I don't know; I gave up on it before that point.

Modern Family gets 4 nods for Best Supporting Actor, and there's nobody from BBT? I wonder if they all submitted as leads?

For this year? Really? Peggy was far from a major character this past season, and certainly didn't carry her show like Claire Danes did. I wouldn't have even thought Moss would be a good lead actress submission.

That's what I thought was great! Network shows are so formulmatic or soap operaish these days. HBO, SHO, AMC, and USA have the best programming out there and I'm glad it shows in the awards nominations.

Now if they would just drop those stupid categories for reality-crap...

Clare Danes over Elizabeth Moss this season is a hands-down win for Danes. Peggy's character was the least moving IMHO than any season in Mad Men.

Ashey Judd getting nominated for anything based on Missing is as much of a joke as reality TV shows being nominated!

Simon Helberg (Howard) and Kunal Nayyar (Raj) entered in supporting, according to the Emmy online ballot.

That's about as different 4 dramas can possibly be from another.

That would be a very hard one to choose.

The storyline did wrap up
- but then there was a little new cliffhanger in the last few seconds...

Thanks. Interesting that Johnny Galecki (Leonard) entered in the lead category.

He was nominated last year in the lead category.

Does anybody watch Downton Abby? Is it any good? I watched a few minutes of a recent ep without knowing who anyone was, and it seemed really strange. Not a fair trial, I know.

Oh and I say it every year...the TCA's are much better awards. People who actually watch television for a living.

I happened to wake up when the Today Show showed the coverage of this (argh, TV didn't turn off), but was half asleep. Kimmel made some sort of big joke near the end.. does anybody remember what it was?

Totally agree. Probst is the main reason why I have seen every episode of Survivor.

Watch both, love both, but thought Claire Danes was one of the best acting performances on TV this past year. IOW, Emmy winning material.

Incredibly competitive category. Amazing group of shows. Here would be my personal rankings:

Game of Thrones
Breaking Bad
Homeland
Mad Men
Boardwalk Empire
Downton Abbey [only one I don't watch, can't rate]

Just about a tie between GoT and BB. Slight edge to GoT, pure viewing pleasure. Homeland is a fantastic show, some amazing acting, but the show itself comes in 3rd.

Veep is awful. 'Parks and Rec' and 'Louie' both got hosed.

Michael J. Fox is a shoe-in for the best guest actor.

I assume that you're referring to the drama category, because I think that the comedy category is wide open. Pretty cool that he got nominated in both, though. I'm not sure how Bobby Cannavale gets placed in the guest category (Comedy) after appearing in 10 episodes. Doesn't really seem fair..

Are you referring to all reality shows, or just "reality-competition" shows, of which there is only one "separate" category? (Non-competition show hosts are eligible for the Reality Show Host category; in fact, Betty White was nominated as host of a non-competition reality show.)

If you want to get rid of the reality show categories, then, keeping in mind that all shows have to be classified as something, what category would you use? Special Class (and have them compete against awards shows)? Nonfiction? I think the reason reality show categories exist in the first place is, they tend to dominate whatever category they are in. This is almost certainly why competition and non-competition shows have their own categories.

Just be glad the Emmy types didn't follow through with their announcement of adding a category for reality show judges.

A few years ago, the Emmy rules changed the definition of "guest" from "someone who appears in fewer than seven episodes" to "someone with a Guest Star credit or having 'guest star' in their contract". Had this rule (and the category) been in effect in the mid-1960s, Jonathan Harris would have been eligible for the entire run of Lost in Space ("the version I heard was," he was only supposed to be in the first seven episodes or so, but when the producers realized it had become "The Dr. Smith and The Robot Show", they made him permanent, but had to keep crediting him as Special Guest Star).

Note that a considerable number of the cast of Glee that play regular characters have "Guest Star" credit (for example, Dot-Marie Jones as Coach Beiste and Lauren Potter as Sue's assistant Becky - in fact, Potter got "promoted" from "Co-Starring" after Season 1).
