    Are they just on autopilot by nominating the Sopranos? Was Melfi even in this season more than a few seconds and get nominated?? And Janice WTF??? The best ending to the whole Sopranos debacle that was the last season is for them to win nothing!!

    I agree on Minnie Driver and the Sopranos. I always thought Aida deserved a nomination but probably not for this season. Although she was good during the episode at the cabin. I agree with Melfi... she barely appeared this season!

    The Drama noms are the biggest disappointment. But I'm glad there are a few good ones... like Ben from Lost, TR Knight, Brothers & Sisters and Denis Leary.

    I love that the actors from The Office got some recognition this year too! And Johnny Drama! VICTORY! :)

    Considering the list we saw earlier of the potential nominees, I see a lot of pleasant surprises. The lead actor/actress and supporting actor in comedy is a pretty good list. It's great to see Ricky Gervais nominated. Dennis Leary & Minnie Driver, good nods to good shows. Is the shield ineligible due to air dates?

    I just don't get how two and a half men is nominated. Then again, I don't get how anyone likes it at all. The other comedies nominated are wayyyyyy better, IMO.

    Several not-nominated comedies are better. My Name is Earl for example, and on most days, Scrubs. NBC's entire Thursday night comedy block is Emmy consideration-worthy.

    My WTF is Boston Legal. Really? This show is actually better than Lost or Friday Night Lights or Veronica Mars or...? Come on.

    I am giving up on the Emmy's they just can't get right where as the TV critics awards get it right every year but of course they watch way more TV than the morons at the Emmy's.

    No FNL, no Lost, no Elizabeth Mitchell and no Michael C. Hall? WTF?

    And more boring crap like Spader and Shatner and that crappy Boston Legal show along with Shaloub? Just mind boggling.

    *sniff* No Veronica Mars love.

    I need a hug.

    Other than that oversight, kudos to The Office, Heroes, 30 Rock, Entourage, and Neil Patrick Harris (and c'mon?! You nominate him but not the series?!).

    I kind of understand VM and most of it is because they were on the CW and ain't no show on that channel going to get love.

    How is Charlie Sheen nominated as Best Actor, and John Cryer as Supporting Actor? Aren't their roles equal on the show?

    The Emmy nominations are just as embarrassing this year as they are every year.

    I enjoy Heroes, but I can't believe that anyone who has seen every episode of Heroes and every episode of Friday Night Lights would choose the superheroes over the Dillon Panthers as best drama.

    The almost total shut-out of FNL is a travesty. It's the best show on network TV, much better than Heroes and Grey's Anatomy, and even better than Lost imho (which I also think is better than Heroes and GA). Emmy voters are apparently totally in love with the soapy and silly GA, though, so it appears to be a lost cause. :(

    On the plus side, I'm glad to see nominations for Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jenna Fischer and Rainn Wilson. I wish that John Krasinski could have sneaked in there with Johnny Drama, but I can't really argue with the nominees in that category. Drama and Barney are both due.

    Charlie Sheen AND Jon Cryer? Really? HOW did that show scrape seven nods?! :thumbsdown:

    I was expecting to at least see Connie Britton in there from FNL. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Happy to see NPH in there.

    Nice to see all the Brothers and Sisters love.

    Michael C. Hall got screwed. :mad:

    And I'm apparently not the only one who fails to comprehend the unwavering adoration shown to Grey's. :confused:

    So did Jon Rhys Meyers for The Tudors.

    I still am trying to understand Boston Legal.
    Just doesn't make any kind of sense to me.

    Agreed except for Fey. There were a number of times I found her unwatchable in 30 Rock and Baldwin blows her away acting wise.
    Fischer deserves an Emmy just for her last scene of the season alone.

    I thought Boston Legal was a comedy?

    I do think that there's going to be a lot sympathy voting for the Sopranos

    There can be no way to please everyone because so much variety on TV.

    My .02 opinion is they did a much better job this years then in recent history. The only real category I thought was totally butchered was supporting actress in a drama as my opinions on the Soprano actors are the same as others and three Grey's actresses is a bit too much for me.

    Elizabeth Mitchell for Lost and Polly Walker for Rome certainly were deserving.

    It's the same as their love for Soprano's. I just love how everyone is justifying the noms for Sopranos because they deserve it because it is their last year?? WTF??? :thumbsdown:
