    Join '30 Rock'

    by Heckles

    It's just a given now? Or is the Tina Fey love-fest still in effect?

  • July 7, 2010, 12:50 p.m. CST

    Always Sunny & Burn Notice

    by Trav

    I'd like to see Always Sunny get a nom for comedy and Burn Notice take home the award for "Best Show to Watch in July while Enjoying an Ice Cold Alcoholic Beverage".

  • July 7, 2010, 12:53 p.m. CST

    Lost deserves nothing!

    by JayLenoTookMyJob

    Not even one of Stan Lee's old No-Prizes. Well, nothing at least until the Golden Turkeys are announced. I think they'd have a chance at beating BSG in the "Worst Finale In All of TV History, No, In All of Fiction, EVER" category.

  • July 7, 2010, 12:55 p.m. CST

    What would make me happy?

    by AdmiralNeck

    Nominations for Zach Gilford from Friday Night Lights (The Son), Terry O'Quinn for Lost, John Noble for Fringe (White Tulip), Jack Bender for the Lost finale (or Tucker Gates for Ab Aeterno), something for everyone who worked on the Mad Men season three finale, some love for Justified and Caprica (though those are outrageous longshots), Best Comedy Guest Star nomination for Michael Sheen as Wesley Snipes on 30 Rock, and a surprise shut-out for Modern Family, the most over-rated show of the year. Send Community and Party Down that love. They need it.

  • July 7, 2010, 1:15 p.m. CST

    Sons of Anarchy!

    by word2that

    Deserves to be nominated and Katey Sagal deserves a nom as well. I can't even believe that was Peg Bundy.

  • July 7, 2010, 1:17 p.m. CST

    It's Always Sunny...

    by schadenfreudian

    I second that emotion.

  • July 7, 2010, 1:21 p.m. CST

    Breaking Bad

    by Nice Marmot

    Is the best drama on TV. Easily.

  • July 7, 2010, 1:24 p.m. CST

    SOA deserves!

    by decypher44

    Sons of Anarchy definitely deserves at least ONE Emmy. Damn fine show.

  • July 7, 2010, 1:29 p.m. CST

    Justified deserves a nomination!

    by TheMcflyFarm

    And John Noble deserves an acting nod. And Kiefer I think gave some of his strongest work last season, especially towards the end. And it's funny how The West Wing won at least 4 years in a row, and who gives a shit about that show anymore.

  • July 7, 2010, 1:30 p.m. CST

    Walton Goggins !

    by TheMcflyFarm

  • July 7, 2010, 1:37 p.m. CST

    Only ONE thing HAS to happen

    by Sonny_Williams

    Acting nod for John Noble or I could give a fat fuck about the Emmys for the rest of my life! Along with that, some love for COMMUNITY, JUSTIFIED, and of course, my absolute personal favorite SPARTACUS: B&S!!

  • July 7, 2010, 1:43 p.m. CST

    I know Lost will be nominated, but there's no way they

    by Coughlins Laws

    should win. I'm glad they won their first year so we can avoid a series award instead of a season award. Damon & Lindelof should definitely NOT be rewarded for how they ended the show...

  • July 7, 2010, 1:55 p.m. CST

    SOA, Justified, South Park, Dexter

    by MegaBeth

    All deserve nominations. So does Fringe actually. Good acting on that show.

  • July 7, 2010, 1:58 p.m. CST

    Friday Night Lights

    by Flippadippa

    Which, as always, deserves nomination, will, as always, not get one.

  • July 7, 2010, 2:01 p.m. CST

    On yeah..

    by MegaBeth

    I saw the first 15 minutes of an ABC show called "Rookie Blue". It has to be the worst piece of crap I have ever seen. I'm sure it's already cancelled but I wanted to mention it. It was so stunningly bad, I was amazed.

  • July 7, 2010, 2:05 p.m. CST

    If Community and Justified get shut out of series

    by skimn

    at least give McHale and Olyphant noms for characters that could have become cliches, and were given something extra.<p>Give Breaking Bad best series, for the past 3 years dammit!<p>And give Ty Burrell best supporting and tell the rest to stay home.

  • July 7, 2010, 2:06 p.m. CST

    If SOA isn't nominated, we roit!

    by shutupfanboy

    The best show on television.

  • July 7, 2010, 2:07 p.m. CST

    Oh and I can dream that Its Always Sunny gets

    by skimn

    some recognition. The courtroom episode was like classic Seinfeld.

  • July 7, 2010, 2:07 p.m. CST

    The Emmys are meaningless

    by satriales

    otherwise the final seasons of The Shield and The Wire would have atleast received a nomination.

  • July 7, 2010, 2:10 p.m. CST

    Sons of Anarchy!

    by Riff_Randell

    Katey is the HBIC, and deserves to win goddammit! Every year, it's the same fucking people sucking each others dicks. Fuck that!!

  • July 7, 2010, 2:16 p.m. CST

    I'm pulling for SOA, Katey Sagal, and John Noble.

    by CCon99

    SOA definitely deserves to be nominated at the least. I would also like to see Katey Sagal and John Noble win, they were both incredible in their respected shows last season. I wouldn't mind seeing Justified and Olyphant nominated in some way as well.

  • July 7, 2010, 2:45 p.m. CST

    Lost deserves an Emmy for the series

    by paburrows

    They ended it awesomely and just like the Oscars waited until Peter Jackson finished LOTR to give him tons of awards, Lost should get tons of awards this year. One of the best series ever!

  • July 7, 2010, 2:48 p.m. CST

    Justified was really good half of the time

    by Indiana-Joe

    It started out with a few good episodes and ended with a few more but the middle of the season felt like filler. Olyphant was pretty good though. I'd be fine if he got a nomination but there's more deserving shows to fill that roster. Maybe they'll keep the momentum going from the end of season one and give us a great follow up. I would love for Rescue Me to pick up a nomination. Sons of Anarchy too. But Breaking Bad should win.

  • July 7, 2010, 2:53 p.m. CST


    by AzulTool

    He is so great on Breaking Bad, that he actually compelled me to post on an Emmy talkback.

  • July 7, 2010, 3 p.m. CST

    Hopefully this year the writing nominations

    by jim

    for Drama & Comedy won't simply be given to whatever is submitted by 30 Rock & Mad Men. Would be nice to see a real sampling of the best rather than 4 nominations from the same show, and a token fifth to another (just to create some "competition" as to the winning show).

  • July 7, 2010, 3 p.m. CST

    I won't give a fuck about the emmys

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    until they stop giving the top prizes to the completely unfunny 30 Rock and the boring-pretensiousness-wrapped-up-in-a-classy-package Mad Men. FUCKING BORING SHOW that gets the top prize every year. <p>Why watch the show when the outcome is predetermined by people who vote for what sounds good rather than what deserves it?

  • July 7, 2010, 3 p.m. CST

    Lost will probably get nominated

    by theGoldbergV

    no idea why though. But the Emmys completely ignored the greatest programme ever made (The Wire) so they are obviously not interested in quality. It'd be great to see some Community love though and Olyphant is the best actor in television

  • July 7, 2010, 3:01 p.m. CST


    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    Agreed 100%! John Noble better get recognized for his work on Fringe S2. Then again, so should John Lithgow for S4 of Dexter. But it'll probably go to some douche from Mad Men.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:02 p.m. CST

    LOST did NOT win....

    by meCPS

    for Season 1. Do you people even read these posts?

  • July 7, 2010, 3:03 p.m. CST

    Oh yeah and John Noble is awesome

    by theGoldbergV

    but Fringe is too sci-fi for mainstream recognition I guess

  • July 7, 2010, 3:04 p.m. CST

    Hugh Laurie

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    STILL needs an emmy for Dr. House, especially looking at ep. 1 of last season when he was in the nut house. He has been incredible in that role for several seasons, but will probably lose to a douche from Mad Men.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:06 p.m. CST

    Terry O'Quinn

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    deserves an emmy for his work on Lost this year. But he'll probably lose out to a douche from Mad MEn.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:07 p.m. CST

    Michael C. Hall

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    had probably his best season on Dexter. Yet he'll probably lose to a douche from Mad Men.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:08 p.m. CST

    Curb Your Enthusiasm

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    had a top-notch season with the Seinfeld reunion. But it'll probably lose out to the never-that-funny 30 Rock.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:09 p.m. CST

    Modern Family

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    was the best sitcom on TV this year, but it'll probably lose out to the shit sandwich that is 30 Rock.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:11 p.m. CST

    True Blood

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    is an awesomely addictive, yet trashy show that will likely never see a best drama nom. <p>BUT IF IT DID, it would probably lose out to the douchy Mad Men.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:12 p.m. CST


    by theGoldbergV

    is being a dick on the talkbacks, but he'd probably lose out to Media Messiah if he was here

  • July 7, 2010, 3:13 p.m. CST

    Community and P&R are not funnier than Modern Family

    by prunkhaft

    Certainly not Communtiy. That statement surprises me. It's definitely the best network comedy right now, and I enjoy it far more than I do 30 Rock at this point.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:13 p.m. CST

    Breaking Bad <p>Bryan Cranston

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    are both incredible and should win for best drama and best actor in a drama. But they'll lose out to that douchy Mad Men

  • July 7, 2010, 3:16 p.m. CST


    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    not being a dick, justr calling them as I see em - however, calling me a dick kind of loses all it's weight when you do it while named after a WWE actor

  • July 7, 2010, 3:19 p.m. CST

    Man. I haven't seen the last 2 seasons . . .

    by Nice Marmot

    . . . of 30 Rock yet, and it sure as hell was FUNNY. Has it gone downhill or are you haters just trying to be different?

  • July 7, 2010, 3:21 p.m. CST

    Nice Marmot

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    Personally, I like Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. Both have incredible timing. But the show itself just doesn't generate very many laughs for me, and Tracy Morgan is the UNfunny.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:22 p.m. CST

    Don't know what you mean

    by theGoldbergV

    cuz I've never seen WWE but be sure that is not what I'm named after. We get it though, you don't like Mad Men and TBH, I agree with most of the other ones you recommend (well except for LOST, which was shitacular this season) but no need to keep going on about it. No beef chief, although you should check out Mad Men, cuz boring it most definitely is not

  • July 7, 2010, 3:25 p.m. CST

    I can appreciate

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    that 30 Rock appeals to some people, but don't understand how it keeps winning best comedy. By all rights Modern Family SHOULD take that this year, as it's one of the funniest sitcoms I've seen in several years. <p>as for Modern Men, my hate on that stems from it's run of awards when every time I watch it it just bores me. It strikes me as one of those things that the fans feel like they're smarter for watching it, when in reality it's a douchy show that's full of itself (though Christina Hendricks IS luscious). It's like when the English Patient or Out of Africa won BP oscars. Seemed they were voted on because it was the classy choice, not necessarily the right one.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:26 p.m. CST

    I've never seen a single episode of The West Wing.


    Was it any good? Or was it "made for emmy" TV?

  • July 7, 2010, 3:27 p.m. CST

    Y the Lost Hate?!

    by blhotz

    You guys must be absolute morons... everyone loved the finale :P. Can't wait to see the extended scenes with new Jacob, Hurley and new Richard, Ben! Emmys everywhere!

  • July 7, 2010, 3:28 p.m. CST

    MAD Men

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    damn lack of edit function <p>well then I apologize Goldberg, but still no reason to call me a dick simply because I'm sick of the same two shows undeservedly winning every year. And I have tried Mad Men at the start of seasons 1, 2, and 3, and it never managed to hold my interest and honestly felt like a prime time soap more than a drama. Boring.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:30 p.m. CST

    and yes

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    I know True Blood falls dangerously close to soap territory, but it has a lot of nice boobs to keep my interest (who knew Anna Paquin had such a great body?)

  • July 7, 2010, 3:33 p.m. CST

    Sorry for calling you a dick

    by theGoldbergV

    was a bit harsh on my part. Agree about English Patient too, what piece of shit that film was.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:35 p.m. CST

    it's cool

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    no harm done, and I'll stop with the shoulda woulda coulda posts. I WISH something else would win, but I've said my piece and it's not like I'm going to change voters' minds.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:43 p.m. CST

    What's the show no one watches?

    by RPLocke

    That will get the most noms.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:49 p.m. CST

    If everything is right in this world

    by batman713

    Breaking Bad and Bryan Cranston will win. Aaron Paul should also win supporting for good measure.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:50 p.m. CST

    Emmys should have no-repeat rule

    by Sonny_Williams

    Of course it'll never happen, but how great would it be if Emmy winners were banned from nomination for the following year or two. At least the voters would have to consider other possibilities instead of voting for the same people year after year.

  • July 7, 2010, 3:56 p.m. CST

    Surely the GLEE Phenomenon

    by zer0cool2k2

    will garner it some undeserved noms. Although, I wouldn't hate Jane Lynch getting nominated.

  • July 7, 2010, 4:37 p.m. CST

    I remmeber the year Star Trek Next Generation was

    by RPLocke

    nominated along side NYPD Blue and ER for best show. Guess what show won? Picket Fences, lol. Emmys are a joke.

  • July 7, 2010, 4:43 p.m. CST

    Sorry Herc, none of the Comedies you mentioned...

    by Mr. Profit

    Are funnier than "Modern Family". While "30 Rock" and "Modern Family" are nowhere near the level of laugh out loud funny that "Arrested Development" was, both are in my opinion the most deserving of nominations. <P>"Modern Family" is funny but it has a lot of heart as well, and the ensemble works well together onscreen. <P>I used to STAN hard for "South Park" many years ago when it first came out, and now when I watch I don't feel anything for it anymore. It just shocks for the sake of it, and after a while how much replay can you get out of something once you have already experienced the shock value? <P>Also both "Parks and Recreation" and "Community" are inconsistent and were not strong overall.

  • July 7, 2010, 4:56 p.m. CST

    Only care about Breaking Bad...

    by DanielKurland

    I love a ton of television, but Breaking Bad was head and shoulders above everything else this year. This season was some of the best television IN GENERAL, I've seen. I'll be very bummed if it doesn't sweep. Community, Party Down, and Parks and Rec would also be nice...

  • July 7, 2010, 4:57 p.m. CST

    Oh and I also care about John Noble...

    by DanielKurland


  • July 7, 2010, 5:11 p.m. CST

    As far as I'm concerned,

    by NoQuarter

    Breaking Bad should win all drama-related categories. Easily the best show on TV this year.

  • July 7, 2010, 5:13 p.m. CST


    by Dapper Swindler

    "Y the Lost hate...everyone loved the finale" Think about what you just said and then tell me who the moron is here.

  • July 7, 2010, 5:14 p.m. CST

    Just remembered a show. . .

    by Nice Marmot

    Whatshername will get nominated for Nurse Jackie.

  • July 7, 2010, 5:16 p.m. CST

    And Jane Lynch will be nominated for Glee.

    by Nice Marmot

    If anybody else on that show gets nominated, its a joke. OK, that gay kid has some seriously funny lines. Nobody else deserves it though . . .

  • July 7, 2010, 5:21 p.m. CST

    lost nominated only for acting

    by yourSTEPDADDY

    If they get noms for best show or writingthen emmys are truly stupid

  • July 7, 2010, 5:31 p.m. CST

    Lost will get a best drama nomination

    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    for the same Reasons Return of the King got an Oscar (even though it was the weakest of the three LOTR films), more for the show as a whole rather than the final season itself - that's just how Hollywood tends to do things

  • July 7, 2010, 6:22 p.m. CST


    by RPLocke

    Hey bozo, ALL the LOTR movies were nominated for best pic. You idiot.

  • July 7, 2010, 6:44 p.m. CST

    Party Down

    by Herbert_Kornfeld

    I'd love to see this show get a nomination, especially now that it's been cancelled. It'd be a nice send off, and maybe it would convince Starz to reconsider. I'm not holding my breath, though.

  • July 7, 2010, 6:47 p.m. CST


    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    don't be a douchebag <p>besides, I said Lost would get a NOM for the same reason ROTK got the OSCAR - never said anything about noms in regards to LOTR <p>so again, DON'T BE A DOUCHEBAG

  • July 7, 2010, 6:50 p.m. CST

    Always Sunny

    by BoopyBeepy

    Dominates over every network comedy. Who thinks Modern Family is funny? It's a good show to jerk off to but the comedy is stale. The husband on that show is basically doing a twist on steve carell from the office. Ed O'neil is akward, his wife is fucking annoying to listen to, little manny is a douche bag. That cameo with Ed Norton playing Russell Brand wasn't funny. There's just something really gutless about the show. Its seems like a copy, of a copy, of a copy, of a copy, of a copy, of something that was funny in 2005.

  • July 7, 2010, 7:12 p.m. CST

    Party Down (continued...)

    by PennsyDeux

    But it won't happen, and they'll get snubbed for that piece of shit Entourage. :|

  • July 7, 2010, 7:15 p.m. CST

    30 Rock Sucks

    by VitaminZ

    The whole show is just celebrity cameos. "Hey, there's Matt Damon! Oh my gosh, it's Julianne Moore with a terrible accent!! Wow, this MUST be funny." Probably the most overrated show ever. Always Sunny, Party Down, and Modern Family are all much better.

  • July 7, 2010, 7:16 p.m. CST


    by Colin62

    As far as last year's list I don't think Big Love, Lost, House, or Dexter belonged on there. But I guess TV's generally a shit product so you have to nominate someone.

  • July 7, 2010, 7:23 p.m. CST

    You know what should be canceled?

    by Triple_J_72

    The Emmys! Why? Because today's programming doesn't deserve awards. :-)

  • July 7, 2010, 7:28 p.m. CST

    LOST for the win!JUSTIFIED&John Noble(FRINGE)..

    by Thanos0145

    deserve Emmy nods!<p>LOST will win Best Drama (sorry Finale haters). O'Quinn and Emerson should get noms (Emerson should win again).<p>JUSTIFIED's Olyphant and Goggins deserve noms as well.

  • July 7, 2010, 7:31 p.m. CST

    Jared Harris

    by Hercules

    Like to see that guy win something.

  • July 7, 2010, 8:18 p.m. CST

    Community IS funnier than Modern Family

    by SifoDyasJr.

    I like Modern Family. It's very clever. But Community is massively hilarious. It's uneven every so often, but they have had at least a half-dozen classic episodes and this is just their first year on the air.

  • July 7, 2010, 9:05 p.m. CST


    by AKA_Gern_Blanston

    did Community get better? I watched early in the season for Chevy Chase but it never really grabbed me, and I just stopped watching after the Halloween episode. Should I give it another try past that ep.?

  • July 7, 2010, 9:15 p.m. CST


    by Timahh

    if you honestly stopped watching after the Halloween ep, then i don't know what to say. That episode was amazing...with that being said the show has most definitely improved in basically every conceivable category since then, but if you don't like that Halloween ep, then community might just not be your bag.

  • July 7, 2010, 9:25 p.m. CST

    John Noble better get a nomination.

    by Imagikafan

    He should win, as well.

  • July 7, 2010, 9:32 p.m. CST

    Justified and John "Freakin'" Noble better get noms

    by SID 8.0

    Throw in Michael C. Hall too. As good as a lot of performances from a lot of actors were this past year no one was better than Noble, no one.

  • July 7, 2010, 9:41 p.m. CST


    by Dr. Hfuhruhurr

    30 Rock is hands down the funniest sitcom on tv and the entire tv industry, the people who make comedy for a living, has agreed on that point since the show's debut.

  • July 7, 2010, 9:46 p.m. CST

    I love the people who call awards crap

    by Dr. Hfuhruhurr

    Only because their favorites don't get nominated. "These awards are meaningless and they better give a meaningless award to my show!"

  • July 7, 2010, 10:18 p.m. CST

    Jesus, those winner lists...

    by blackwood three shows in ten years.<p>TV is dead.<p>Also, I will be super pissed if SPARTACUS isn't nominated.

    Breaking Bad For The Sweep

    by HeisenbergsBlueSky

    I'm predicting Best Drama,Best Actor And Best Supporting Actor.anything less is a slap in the face and a disgrace to great entertainment

  • July 8, 2010, 12:22 a.m. CST


    by VitaminZ

    That's nice that other people in the TV industry like 30 Rock so much. These are the same people responsible for all the total shit on TV, right? Great. It's a show about guest stars.

    My thoughts on Drama category

    Best supporting actor;Terry O'Quinn, Michael Emerson, John Noble, Martin Short (Damages) and Aaron Paul. For me pick of the awards in terms of quality and I would love to see John Noble or Michael Emerson get it, but Aaron Paul surely should win. <p> Best actor: Michael C Hall, Bryan Cranston, and John Hamm, don't think anyone else comes close to those 3 so the rest just make up the numbers and Bryan Cranston for the win. <p> Best supporting actress;Elisabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, again I am stumped, so think Moss will take the win <p> Best actress; Glenn Close, January Jones, Katey Sagal, think Close will win it, but wold love to see Sagal win it, though getting January Jones on stage so we can see more of her is also good. <p> Best series; Dexter, Lost, Mad Men and Breaking Bad. I love Lost and want it to win, but think Breaking Bad is not a bad choice either. <p> Still got a couple of Justified episodes to see, but for me its a so so series so far, maybe the last two eps might change my mind.

    Best Comedy; Curb should win, but think Glee will take it home. <p> Best actress: think Toni Collette should win, Eddie Falco is a chance, but I think Michelle Lea from Glee will win, think Glee will be the new "30 Rock" in terms of awards. <p> Actor Larry David should win, but will be another win to Glee. <p> supporting actor; Jeremy Piven maybe, no idea on this one. <p>

    AKA Gert: 2 reasons you should have kept watching "Community"

    by DiscoGodfather

    The chicken fingers episode was brilliant, and "Modern Warfare" was probably the best episode of any comedy this season (except arguably for "Sunny"'s "World Series Defense" episode.)

    Breaking Bad got seven

    by The McPoyle Clan

    including directing, editing, sound editing, cinematography, and as expected for Cranston, Paul, and Drama. But it didn't make the cut for writing, which is bogus. Mad Men took two spots in the category again, and depending on your view, either FNL or the Good Wife took its spot; the Lost finale had the other.<br><br>MM made a good call on the supporting actor category, except subtract Braugher for Noble. Never watched Men of a Certain Age, but everyone else in the category is certainly worthy, though my money is on Paul, of course.<br><br>Big, but pleasant surprise--Kyle Chandler got a lead actor nod for FNL.

    Olyphant and Goggins!!!

    by TheManWhoCan

    Best anti-buddy/buddy team up since another 48 hours! Modern family is laaammme broad comedy at its worst. (Daughter always on the cell phone lame lame lame uninspired writing yawn!)30 Rock is good but HAS to stop it with the cameos its the worst thing about it. At least Community put a clever twist on the idea and showed how awkward the celebrity cameos always are with the Jack Black episode!

    the Academy wasn't oversentimental for Lost's last season.<br><br>They did go crazy for Glee. If you're not already sick of all the hype it gets, you will be. It is no doubt the "popular" choice, even if it doesn't live up to the hype.

    IS MONK NOMINATED AGAIN??? <p> But yeah, funny slap in the face for Jay. It's like the Academy wants Herc to make fun of Leno :D

    I'm actually kind of excited that the guys from Modern Family pushed out Piven once and for all, but would have rather they knocked out Jon Cryer. Someone else better fucking win. And seriously? Tony Shaloub? On the plus side, it seems like pretty much everyone in the main cast of Mad Men got a nomination.

    President Logan got his!...even if Boyd Crowder did not. Nor did Olyphant.

    poor Glee

    by Bouncy X

    i've never watched it and never will but you can tell that by season 4 (if it reaches it) it'll be a shell of its former self and just drag until its put down due to ratings, like every other "kitschy" show.
