Thoughts.

1. Can't really disagree with any of the series noms, unless it would be to remove TWW and put in The Shield. But then, I haven't seen Battlestar Galactica, and I hear that's a great show, too.
2. Kickass for Denis Leary's nom.
3. Boo for Debra Messing zooming a comedy nod rightly reserved for Lauren Graham.
4. My admiration of Ari is evidenced by my avatar, but that supporting actor in a comedy slot is FILLED with great choices. I could vote for any of them in turn, though Sean has been treading water for a while.

Yeah, Huff is awesome. Oliver Platt definitely deserves his nomination. Its just another show that is a critical success but fails to bring in money (see Deadwood and Arrested Development). Bummer.

Jon Cryer? I like the show, but Cryer is hardly worthy of an Emmy.

As for Malcom in the Middle and Arrested Develoment, are they even still on the air?

Cryer is probably my first choice. IMO he's 90% of why the whole show works. It may look like Sheen's vehicle, but Cryer is definitely the glue.

That show's success is about the writing, not the acting. Cryer is a complete over-actor IMO, like some character from a bad broadway show.

I think there are other actors from other shows that warrant consideration before anyone on 2 1/2 Men.

Can't believe of all the people on MNIE they picked Pressley...especially considering the relative difficulty of her role compared to the white trash tramps she's played in all of her other appearances.

Nice to see "House" on the list, I can't really understand why Hugh Laurie doesn't get a nod all by himself, unless they're taking into account the awards he's already won and trying to give someone else a chance...

Forrest Whittaker deserved a nomination for the great job he did on the Shield all season.

The Sopranos gets nominated after the deplorable season they had? The same for Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Hmm, I think 'The Office' could concievably win that Comedy category. That would be awesome... just to keep it in good standing with NBC.

Not that big a deal, so I didn't start a new thread, and this one was close enough to the subject matter.

But I recently watching episodes of Web Therapy, and besides LOVING how funny it is and how unique in it's format [whole show is mostly improv over chat windows as Kudrow's character is a . . . Web Therapist, giving 2 minute worthless therapy session by iChat or whatever Mac has].

But is amazing how gay the cast is.

Dan Bucatinsky
Victor Garber
Alan Cumming
Tim Bagly
Lily Tomlin
Michael McDonald [70/30 on that one, but only one not officially out]
Maulik Pancholy

even Rosie O'Donnell and Sarah Gilbert had arcs.

That's like 90% of all screen time.

Nothing ominous, just quirky.

Cool Breitbart link bro

1. It's not a political link
2. It's 7 years old
3. I resuscitated solely to have a place to put a small musing I had that was tangentially related. TBH, I just did a search for Kudrow and picked link.
4. Don't recall specifically, but I'd wager that it was actually a Drudge link to a Breitbart link who probably scooped other outlets and splashed huge it over the letterhead.

I'm rooting for Kevin James in King of Queens. I always thought that was a way underrated show. This could be the year!

Wow. I read through the entire list, and I have not watched any of those shows once.

This really is the gem of the thread. Look at the OP, read nothing but the "Best Drama" and "Best Comedy" categories.

The Sopranos
The Office
Arrested Development
The West Wing
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Scrubs

To think that none of them even had one show worth watching but still got nominated. Glad to see somebody in 2006 wasn't afraid to call out that bullshit.

Victor Garber is gay? Huh. Never would've guessed.

EDIT: Also, never would have thought to see Denis Leary nominated for an Emmy. Always figured Rescue Me was a show that wasn't worthy of such "lofty" consideration.

No, don't get me wrong. Tommy Gavin is one of my favorite characters in TV. Just didn't think Leary had enough clout to be nominated for an Emmy.

Just like his stand-up comedy, Denis Leary stole his lines from someone else and took all the credit.
