    I'm certainly happy for Betty White she deserves to be nominated, not because she's older but she's good. Congrats Betty.

    I'm really tired of Betty White getting nominated for everything. She is funny and I respect her, but she is certainly not deserving of outstanding actress nominations at the moment. There are TV actresses on right now that are acting circles around her. The single and only reason she is getting these nominations is because she is old.

    Bummed that they left Joseph Gordon-Levitt out for 50/50. He did get a Globe nod though.

    What about Norman Reedus in the Walking Dead? He should be nominated!

    Why does Ty Burrell get picked for Modern Family? Ed O'Neill is way better!

      I don't see why Modern Family, 30 Rock and The Office are even thought of as comedies. They are the worst shows ever! But I agree with Ed O'Neill. He is the best.

    Whoops! I meant Screen Actors Guild, not Hollywood Foreign Press, but my comment still stands. YAWN!

    The Hollywood Foreign Press needs to "change the channel". So many of the same TV nominees again and again. I can only speak to the drama categories because I don't watch much comedy. What about "Justified, Sons of Anarchy, and Southland just to name a few?

      I totally agree Lucy- and how about Sarah Wayne Callies for Walking Dead? But i guess it's "who you know" that secures your nom? As far as the comedy watching, don't bother, except Modern Family, which is always good for a few laughs!
