    The Emmy's are tripe. Seasoned performers are left out in favor of newbies, most of whom are not worth watching. The best actors and actresses should win, but they don't. Maybe they are trying to prop up the crap they are serving up as entertainment.

    So tired of minorities screaming "racist" at every opportunity.
    It's a TV award show, and the nominees are who they are. If you are sad your particular show wasn't chosen, then maybe they'll get it next year. But tallying nominees by race is racist. Crying discrimination at the drop of a hat discredits real claims of discrimination and hurts the overall cause of racial equality.
    It just comes off as whining. Maybe there are fewer minorities on TV-shouldn't the awards reflect that? Would you like it if 30% of the actors got 90% of the awards? How would that be fair?
    Anyway-probably shouldn't join this fray-but wanted to make a point.

    There really is an amazing amount of great television on currently and it would be nice to see some rotation in the recognition here. Despite the comedic wavelengths they both exhibit, "Bones" and "Castles" are both solid crime dramas. "The Mentalist" has always been solid. "Saving Grace" and Holly Hunter were both ignored. Then we have Courteney Cox for "Cougar Town," a show that started off a bit on the shaky side, but really developed into a nice ensemble comedy by the end of the first season. Chandra Wilson's amazing work in the finale of "Grey's Anatomy" was dissed. It's crazy. Some of the usual suspects need to be tucked away for a bit, especially when they've reached the point of just being nominated because of who they are or what the show is. If that particular season was sub-par, then it shouldn't be a contender...

    I agree with the comments listed – the really great shows don't get any nominations yet year on year we have the same old boring ones. No disrespect but REALLY! To be honest it's just boring – there should be a limit to how many times a show is nominated – the people who select the shows should have to do more work and give more people opportunities – I really don't think the shows nominated are bad but honestly I don't think they are the best that entertainment has on offer at the moment.

    @Get Over It, of course no one complains about the BET awards being predominately Black...what do you think BET stands for?

    @alan, every major network is pretty much geared towards caucasians.

    I'm asisan, and i'm not compalining that there's not Asain Entertainment Network or something, but I do understand why people are frustrated that there are extremely few people nominated of any color.

    For example, I think Chandra Wilson who plays Dr. Miranda Bailey on Grey's Anatomy should have been nominated based on this year's season finale alone.

    What do you know. There are a lot of Cable Shows I like and Watch on HBO and Showtime plus Broadcast TV, ABC and CBS. But as I read the list of the shows and actors, it's so void of color. I might catch or DVR the Show to just see. But I'm tired of the of these award shows of white actors, creeators and directors awarding their selves again and again. TV is so boring seeing the same thing over and over.

    I have not seen all of the other movies in the category, but Claire Danes really deserves to win the Best Actress award for a mini series or movie for her role in Temple Grandin on HBO. As the father of an autistic child, Ms Danes really brought the story of Temple Grandin to light which helps to give me hope that there is a bright future for my 9 year old daughter still. The things that Temple did in her life were amazing. Ms Danes' portrayal of Temple was fantastic from the way she spoke, the way she refused hugs, all the way down to how she couldnt look anybody in the eye when she spoke to them. She was amazing playing the part of an amazing woman.

    Yes Yes Yes finally Friday Night Lights got some! It's a pity Zach Gilford wasn't in the list. The Son is a great episode. the best of the series and one of the finest hour of television EVER.
    as for NCIS: got all those viewers increasing for the syndication. but there are show a lot better than that, IMHO 7th season is the worst of the show so far...

      John Nobles performance is what make Fringe fun to watch. Without him, it would be just another in a long line of science fiction shows. He probably got over-looked because (like the Oscars), Hollywood doesn't like science fiction.

      I'm very happy for Breaking Bad; it's an amazing show. I don't think Supernatural will ever get any recognition, just because it's on the CW, which sucks because it's also a great show.

      I'm kind of disappointed that The Boondocks has never gotten any noms. The first season was brilliant, and even won a Peabody (which I think is a little more impressive than an Emmy). It blows South Park out of the water, especially with the crap SP's been peddling lately.

    Treme is such good television. I don't understand why it's not more prominent in the nominations., Glee is one of the worst things I've ever seen on television.And by the way

    It's too bad that the large old networks get looked at the most. I'm glad to see some of the others HBO< USA and others, which have much better programming than the big 3 getting more nods. It's just too bad because there are some great shows on these networks that do not get the recognition they deserve, some are so much better than the ones that got the nod this year and past years.

    Jim Parsons always gets nominated (for good reason), but what about Johnny Galecki? BBT is the only comedy I watch so I can't comment on the others.

    Castle and Criminal Minds were totally overlooked. The best shows on network TV. The Mentalist used to be good, but has been almost unwatchable this year. And what about Foyle's War on PBS? A great show.

      I agree with you 100%. It seems someone always has to play the "race" card. After awhile, it becomes annoying and really stupid especially in the entertainment business in Hollywood and on television. People of all races have talent and are recognized by their peers and by the public every day. Get with today's world – we even have a Black President! I think the boo-hooing needs to stop.

      It's interesting that the one industry that still practices discrimination is Lefty-controlled Hollywood. These sanctmonious snobs are always telling everyone, thru their programs, how racists we are. They are the real racists. When I watch CSI:NY and wonder, "Where are the minorites, who dominate this city?" They're invisible on CSI:NY. CSI:Miami might as well be called CSI:Iowa for all the Cubans on the show. I think Miami has the greatest Cuban population in the US. But NOT on CSI:Miami. Who's to blame? The White producers and directors of Hollywood are the real racists.

      Shows are chosen on the basis of quality - not diversity. Notwithstanding, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Nurse Jackie, Dancing with the Stars, Top Chef and Project Runaway all had ethnic minorities in their cast.
