As you can tell by the steam coming out of my ears, Emmy nominations are out.

Okay, does the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences even watch the shows they nominate? Seriously. Because I'm convinced that they don't. Or if they do, they have even worse taste than the people who keep "American Idol" and "Survivor" on the air.

Does "The Sopranos" really need even more accolades heaped on them? While "Deadwood" and "Studio 60" receive no critical nominations? I can't even fathom how that happened. There's never been a better show than "Deadwood".


I hope Ian McShane kicks all their asses. While Bradley Whitford mocks them savagely.

Edited to add: Oh yeah! And Lauren Graham, Kristin Bell and "Lost" too! Damned Emmy voters.

Urg . . . I gave up the Emmy's long ago. Each year I check the nominees in hopes that something worth-while is nominated, and each year I am disappointed.

I have to admit, this year was better than last year. I will still refuse to watch, because of their snub on Kristen Bell, Veronica Mars, and Gilmore Girls. I don't know if you watch Gilmore Girls, but if anyone deserves an Emmy, it's Lauren Graham. On her seventh and final year, they couldn't even scrape a nomination? That's just mean!

Good luck with your picks, I'll be reading the news the day after!

Oh, and I assume you heard Kristen Bell will be joining Heroes? So exciting!

Yeah, poor Lauren Graham. I think she got continually screwed because their show was submitted as a comedy instead of a drama. All of her most Emmy-worthy material is pretty dramatic.

I actually haven't watched Heroes yet. But since Kristen Bell will be joining the cast (for at least half the season!) I might have to break down and buy the Season 1 DVDs so I know what the hell is happening.

Ryan Secrest will be hosting the Emmys this year... So I think I'll also just be reading the news the next morning!
