I don't watch enough TV to be able to really do this. I do, however, think O'Quinn deserves the award for Lead Actor - Drama. That guy just kills in S6.

Only for different roles/different shows. A role can only be nominated in one category. One episode per role.

Need to watch Parks and Rec. Community doesn't have a strong enough one and I love Modern Family, especially Cam.


Supporting Actress, Comedy:
Alison Brie (Community)
Jane Lynch (Glee)
Julie Bowen (Modern Family)
Aubrey Plaza (Parks & Recreation)
Jenna Fischer (The Office)

Another one I haven't seen enough to defintitively say. Jane Lynch will win but Julie Bowen is pretty good. Only one I wouldn't give it to is Jenna Fischer.

You made a comment yesterday that the show was about dumb blond jokes and situations that dumb blonds get into. It was a description of a different show than Parks & Recreation; your description doesn't work. At all. I believed that you didn't watch the second season because, based on that comment, the only alternative to you not having seen it would be that you actually saw it but didn't understand it at all.

Your reduction/deflection doesn't work. It doesn't deter in any way from your perception of P&R as "a show about a dumb blonde and jokes about her being a dumb blonde and the zany situations dumb blondes get into" when the "dumb blonde" in question (Amy Poehler's character) isn't even dumb. The character is smart, in fact, and dedicated to a fault. She's socially awkward and has an innocence & naivety about her but she is not dumb. This is all readily apparent to people who watch season 2.

(I will grant that the character was written as sort of dumb in season 1. Season 1 was a show that didn't know where its voice was or what its character really were. Your description sort of fits season 1; another reason why I thought - still do think, despite your protestations - that you hadn't watched season 2.)

Another comment that serves as criticism of the first season of the show and not the superb second season. The Leslie Knope character doesn't come off as being like Michael Scott at all in the second season.

I'd take any of the Modern Family writers and actors over anyone in their respective categories.

I don't think that Alec Baldwin would lose to anyone. He's universally loved.

And IMO, you've way overrated Parks & Rec. It's a good show, certainly better in season two than season one, but I don't think it's a "great" show just yet.

While I was surprised and pleased to see Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton get nominations for FNL, the list as a whole is atrocious. As usual, the Emmy nominations make an embarrassment of the entire medium.

Really?

There are some surprising ones but I think, aside from the populism nods (majority of Glee noms) they're pretty decent. Hell, Best Actor in a Drama is effing stacked.

Now that I've watched FNL it's shocking both Coach and Mrs. Coach haven't been nominated before because they're spectacular. Might be the best on screen marriage I've seen. More on my FNL thoughts later.

Mike O'Malley for guest star, for sure. He wins easily, for me, anyway.

The one glee nomination I completely agree with (non-guest star, obviously) is Chris Colfer. I'm glad they recognized him as easily the best character and performance on that show.

The Pacific should win credit sequence but FNL should have been nominated.

I also have to agree with this tweet:

@TVWithoutPity: insane #TheOffice's worst season got #Emmy nom for Best Comedy, while #Chuck, #Community, and #CougarTown didn't.

Breaking Bad walks with Cinematography or I kill some people.

I'll be lending all my good vibes in support of Foxy, O'Quinn, Mitchell and LOST for victory in their respective catagories.

And this past season of The Office was, hands down, it's most uneven thus far. I was actually surprised to read it landed a nod.

The actors from Lost can eat a dick. They weren't convincing, at all. Their final season was a joke, from start to end.

Jon Hamm was fucking EPIC. His performance was head and shoulders above Matthew Fox, who basically played the same character for six seasons, outside a few lines (that weren't even convincing, IMO).

As for Supporting Actor, I don't really have a dog in this hunt but I'd take John Slattery. His performance was sublime. Emerson and O'Quinn reiterated the same performances over the past 3 season and didn't bring ANYTHING new.

I saw the Ann-Margaret episode and of course, the Eli Mitchell "Lost". No comparison. Eli Mitchell is predictable and lame, hence her "V" performances.

Ann-Margaret is a legend. The same of which can't be said for Eli Mitchell.

I didn't see the Ann-Margaret episode of the cartoon known as Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She'd have to be awfully good to win over Elizabeth Mitchell in the Lost finale. Legend doesn't have anything to do with anything. Elizabeth Mitchell and Josh Holloway were so good that I actually stopped hating the flash-sideways during the scene where they reunited at the vending machine.

I agree that Lost's sixth season was a series-damaging joke, but that doesn't diminish some of the performances. Fox was actually good, for once. So good that I am not upset that he got nominated. He sold that conversion from Man of Science to Man of Faith and it seemed to spark something in his performance. I must disagree, strongly - like to the point of cursing -, with you about Emerson and O'Quinn. They both brought plenty new to their characters. Emerson portrayed Ben Linus as more humble on the island and more protective/fatherly in the flash-sideways, while O'Quinn was an entirely different character than in years previous.

I think Brian Cranston should win for the third straight year; his performance is an all-time great one. That said, if Jon Hamm submits the episode "The Gypsy and the Hobo" than he has a shot of upsetting Cranston. I'd like to see Hamm win it one year; he's been very good this whole time.

If you want to argue they aren't worthy because they have given the performance before, that's a fair argument.

But saying they weren't convincing (those nominated) is rubbish. Their performances, by the way, should be independent of a writing failure - ie. religious bs.

Exactly.

And I'm sorry, but Matthew Fox has been earning Emmy nods for 6 years. Consistently. It's a shame it took him this long to be recognized.

But independent of how I feel about Foxy's work on LOST as a whole, he really did some nice work in S6. Does he deserve to beat out the other noms? I don't know. I haven't watched any of those other shows. But Matthew Fox at least deserves to be a part of the conversation.

While I was surprised and pleased to see Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton get nominations for FNL, the list as a whole is atrocious. As usual, the Emmy nominations make an embarrassment of the entire medium.

Dude, come on.

You're asking a bunch of people that work full-time in television (and many of those same people work in film as well), to get home from a 10 hour day, then watch a shitload of television, some of it obscure and difficult to find?

I've never seen FNL or Breaking Bad or Glee or Sons of Anarchy or Damages or Dexter or Monk or the Good Wife or Nurse Jackie or Treme or True Blood (and the actress who played Maryanne lives 20 feet across the street from me) or The Cleaner and on and on and on. There just isn't enough time in the week (or year) to watch all of these shows.

Emmy voters vote for friends and actors that everyone recognizes. I'd bet money that the average Emmy voter hasn't even seen 25% of the shows and performances nominated - it's just too damn time consuming.

Sounds like we need a different organization with a different award to come to prominence so that we can properly acknowledge the work being done by cast and crew of the television medium. An organization whose voters aren't too busy to have an honest say.

If there were a seventh comedy nominated then I would have chosen The Office. I don't feel that last season for that show (or the one before it, or the one before it) was among the strongest comedies on the air. The show seems like a parody of itself most times and it relies too heavily on the fondness that the show's audience has for all of its characters. Still, I watched every episode of last season and would choose it ten times out of ten over The Big Bang Theory.

The show in particular. I hate the writing and I've never laughed during an episode. I've seriously never found a single joke to be funny the few times I've watched it.And while I do find the old "studio audience" "line-line-laugh, line-line-laugh, line-line-big laugh" setup that CBS still uses to be very stale at this point, I enjoy How I Met Your Mother.

Don't know if I have laughed harder than when Marguilies did the squawk, squawk motion with her hand when David Lee tried to address the court.
I wish I had the time and gumption to lay out the myriad and multifold ways this show get SO FUCKING many big and small things right, so many of which a lay person might not even notice. There might be so better, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, etc., don't necessarily know if there are ANY EVER smarter, only so much of what's smart of The Good Wife probably flies over the head of many, while still being a rip roaring good tale for the lay person.

I'd think it right up your alley. Though it's about Chicago, not L.A., it's really ahead of the curve on legal issues, bitcoin, NSA, internet hazing, politics in business, 'creative' problem solving. It's really smart about all of it.

What it does better than any show since The X-Files, even better than Justified, is integrate long form story telling and cases of the week. So you can enjoy a single episode, but really benefit from watching from the beginning.

I've heard it's great and maybe some day I'll catch up to it. But believe it or not, I still haven't seen a single episode of Breaking Bad and I've got every episode of Homeland this season unwatched on the DVR.

It seems like I have more time for the 30 minute shows as of late, than the hour long dramas. I'm dying to start Breaking Bad but the time hasn't been right. Hopefully it'll happen during the holiday season.

Oh, and I still haven't seen Season Four of Justified, which I'd like to see before the next season starts.

Yea, I catch up to The Good Wife eventually. I've heard nothing but raves about it. Just don't have the time right now and watching other shows at the moment.
