    The Emmy's get it right...I stood up and cheered for Friday Night Lights, Emmy for writing and for Kyle Chandler and best supporting actor to Peter Dinklage (my son told me he was a sure bet!), whatever. Shows that don't pander and assume the intelligence of the audience (yea, it's been said over and over again). I stood up and cheered for these awards.

    For those of you wondering about Cloris Leachman in the Comedy Guest Actress category, the rule is: "Comedy/Drama series guest performers with 'guest star' billing, or who are contracted as such, are
    eligible in the guest performer categories without regard to the number of episodes he/she appeared in."

Once again all of the nominees are either very popular network shows/actors, "highly praised" premium cable offerings or movie actors who take a TV guest role.

    Survivor wasnt too good but it was still better than any of these shows. Plus NORTHERN EXPOSURE was a hundred trillion times better than any of these. Instead of making new things that stiiink just show reruns. Norther Exposure would win in every category even as a rerun.

      As much as I love True Blood, Season 3 wasn't exactly spectacular as compared to the first two seasons. There is no doubt that the cast is stellar, but the material they had to work with in Season 3 just didn't capture the audience's attention as compared to the first two. Season 4 has started promisingly, so perhaps Emmy nominations will be had for all for Season 4!

      That's one more nomination than it deserves.

      True Blood has an outstanding story line. That's pretty much it. They ended and started every episode last season with over the top screaming. It didnt make sense

      . Actors are terrible. If anyone watches this and thinks something other than Midnight SOAP, please explain.

      Still...I love it 🙂

    Cloris Leachman for Guest Actress? Wasn't she in every single episode of Raising Hope? Can you be a "guest" for an entire season?

      Actually, you can, depending on how your contract is worded. Some actors/actresses demand "special guest star" billing even though they appear in every episode. Other examples are Heather Locklear in Melrose Place, and Jonathan Harris (Dr. Smith) in Lost in Space.

    I wish that Always Sunny in Philadelphia would be recognized for its genius writing. Comedy gold my friends, comedy gold.

      While it was still good, last season really wasn't one of its better years.

      Um, everyone on It's only sunny IS white. I like the show, but I think it is overrated by its hard-core fans.

      @ Mary B
      Do you need to get a new pair of glasses. I clearly see a number of Black actors nominated for Emmy's. What I fail to see is Asian and South American or a number of other races begin nominated. So check yourself before you write anything.

      That's because the BLACKS ONLY CLUB is on BET.

      Raising hope is my favorite new show and it should def be nominanted... i think Cloris Leachman and Martha Plimpton should take home the rewards...but i agree with Paul, Always Sunny should have been nominated....its hysterical and the cast is very talented.
