  1. Its always the same shows on every awards show. I just don’t get the appeal for 30 Rock and Mad Men. Both overrated IMO. I agree Steve it’d be nice for BL to finally win something although I again predict it will be neglected in favour of a cynical cable show (Mad Men or Dexter…)

  2. I would love Boston Legal to win an award in recognition of what a great show it has been over 5 seasons, but I fear that it will never do well in a “drama” category because there is so much comedy associated with the show. I guess it really falls under the category of “dramedy” (like Desperate Housewives).
