Emmy nominations reax
Here's the list.
I've never been a fan of the Emmys, but this list seems even more terrible than usual.
"The Sopranos" scoring 15 was predictable, and although I wasn't a huge fan of the final season, I won't knock the noms, given the show's legacy.
There are a couple nice surprises (Masi Oka, Alec Baldwin, Jenna Fischer, "Battlestar" getting writing and directing nods).
But there are just a bunch of terrible, terrible noms. "Boston Legal" springs to mind. The voters must have accidentally been watching last season's "24."
Almost nothing for "Lost," after a truly rousing comeback last season. Nothing for "The Wire." I think the only thing "Rome" scored was for hairstyling. My freakin' god.
And, sorry to beat that horse again, but practically nothing for "Friday Night Lights." I mean, even if you don't care for the program, anyone who would seriously argue Connie Britton doesn't even deserve a stinkin' nomination is freakin' blind. Edie Falco and Minnie Driver are the only ones in the drama actress list I agree with -- and Falco didn't have her best season.
The supporting actor in a comedy is probably the best overall category -- although putting Drama and Ari from "Entourage" against each other is silly, given the way that show has tailed off in quality.
I know, it doesn't really matter. "The Sopranos" will win everything anyway. But reading those noms was an irritating way to start the day.
