  1. Has anybody mentioned how the Australian prosthetics team got a nom for ‘The Pacific’? Jason Baird and the gang from the Gold Coast did a terrific job and are now up there with the best! Australians talent isn’t just the actors you know.

  2. Does Ten still have the rights to this event? They have really good chances in almost every category, so it would be like a two hour ad for their imported programming.

  3. my early picks – Jim Parsons, Edie Falco, Michael C Hall, Juliana Marguiles, Modern Family – comedy, Mad Men – drama, Neil Patrick Harris, Jane Lynch, Terry O’Quinn and Christine Baranski in the 4 supports.

  4. I know they won’t win but good to see FNL get some love.
    I do like Glee but I really hope they don’t win in the actor/actress comedy series because there are way more talented people nominated there that deserve to win. Hopefully Modern Family can get a few since they were robbed by Glee last time.
    I’m always shocked to not see Cat Deeley nominated for best host.

  5. PS exept the part about It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia being the funniest show on television – I definitely don’t agree with that.

  6. As much as I loved Neil Patrick Harris’ guest spon on Glee, Mike O’Malley’s performance in the following episode was wonderful. He deserves the win.

    & I agree with Grinspoon; Lost doesn’t deserve to win. The last season had it’s moments, but the majority of it was crap. There was definitely better drama on the screen but Lost gets nominated anyway purely because it’s Lost. By the way; I’m a massive Lost dork, so please no one have a go at me because I ‘just didn’t get it’.

  7. Suggestion for new category: Show to Jump the Shark Quickest
    Nominations: Glee, Glee, Glee, Glee and Glee
    Agree with Grinspoon.. Community deserved more – some! – recognition (especially Ken Jeong and Jon Oliver).
    Go Conan.
    Can’t understand why The Celebrity Apprentice han’t been nominated for any of its three seasons – beautifully shot and cut and highly entertaining.

  8. Couldnt believe it when Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson were not there. I said WTF! Their performances in that Grey’s finale was just brilliant. This is just the biggest snub. Sorry but the Emmy Awards are dead to me now. They continue to nominate the same stuff every year and there are a few surprises but yeah its just bull.

    To the nominees themselves so glad Glee and Lost are so prominent as well as Modern Family. They got it right with these shows and along with The Pacific i think they will be very hard to stop in their respective categories.

  9. Agree that it’s fantastic to see Kyle and Connie getting noms for FNL – love that show! Don’t agree with you Grinspoon that 30 Rock had a dull season – are you kidding? It just gets better and better and totally should be included for best comedy. Happy that Breaking Bad picked up some – another one of my favs 🙂

  10. Are the Emmy’s not airing on Channel 10 later that day? Don’t they normally? I love watching it.. though I don’t have cable so might have to miss out this year… And congrats to Dexter, Lost, The Office, Glee and Rose Byrne.. some of my favourites right there!

  11. The Pacific was good in ever category except for story. They took the approach on showing the experience for a couple guys during the war, but watching you got no real sense of what was going on. The locations and battles, a lot were just similar. Unlike Band of Brothers which every one complains when you compare the two, but it was just a vastly superior story.

    For nominations, surprise surprise the funniest show on TV doesn’t get nominated again. “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.”
    Now that glees around, that’ll probably win every year from now on anyways. Sort of show that often fits the category, not strictly a pure comedy but popular so always wins at the detriment of straight up comedies.

    Problem is, something like 30 Rock had a pretty dull season, shouldn’t be nominated but it’s a show that has been excellent so just gets nominated. Something like “Community” which was really good should have got the nom instead.

    Lost, final season was the worst season of the show. Loved the show but it doens’t deserve a Nom for dropping in quality so much.

  12. i’m esctatic that Matthew Fox and the other 3 “lost” actors are nominated,not to mention the series is up for best drama.All nominations are so deserving,especially for the series final!
    All the actors from “glee” deserve their nominations too!

  13. What I chuckled at was for “Best Editing of a Miniseries” (or whatever its official title is), “The Pacific” has *three* nominations! – for the three different editors of Episodes 5, 6 and 9.

  14. Thrilled with The Good Wife nominations, especially Archie Panjabi! And Chris Cofler (and his dad) for Glee. And Andre Braugher should be nominated every time he appears on screen.
