To see the rest of the list that includes much deserved noms for Mike O’Malley for Glee and Betty White for Saturday Night Live go to Variety!

I think this was a great year for the Emmys because they were not as elitist as year’s past and nominated shows that people watch and like. Yes their favorites still got in there, but so did other shows like Glee, Modern Family, Friday Night Lights and True Blood. Way to go!
Congrats to the Modern Family cast (except for poor Ed O’Neill and Rico Rodriguez) who got well deserved nominations, too bad the Academy didn’t think the show was worthy of one. Also dissed in that category was The Big Bang Theory, but Jim Parsons received his second nom. Also nominated from CBS Monday comedies were Neil Patrick Harris for How I Met Your Mother and Jon Cryer and Holland Taylor for Two and Half Men and I don’t think any of them were really deserving this year. Not that I don’t love them, but both comedies were not as good this year as they were in season’s past. At least Charlie Sheen and the actress who played his ex-fiancee’ on the show did not get noms. Glee of course got several noms and Lea Michele is the new America Ferrera…if you know what I mean. Congrats to Chris Colfer, Jane Lynch and Mike O’Malley on their noms for Glee. Now when it comes to the Showtime noms for Nurse Jackie and United States of Tara, I know the shows are 30 minutes long but does that really mean they are comedies?
Now when it comes to the drama category, I have to admit I don’t watch most of the noms. Although I am happy for Michael C Hall for Dexter, Kyle Chadler for Friday Night Lights, Andre Braugher for Men of a Certain Age, Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn for Lost and the show for getting the nom.
Now it will be interesting to see will the Emmys stick with their favs or will they branch out for the newer and better shows? Let’s hope they change things up.
