You can see a complete list here. I am a notorious Emmy hater (the worst of the major real awards groups --on autopilot so often and when they're not they often exhibit bad taste anyway) so I shan't go on and on about it. but I will say these quick things:
Arrested Dev., Curb Your Enthusiasm, Office, Scrubs, Two And A Half Men
Why spoil a splendid lineup with that last whaaa? selection. That 'Men' show is painfully generic. I guess 5 out of 5 would be too much to ask Kinda surprising that they punish Desperate Housewives for a weak second season given that it usually takes Emmy 3 years to notice a show has gone sour. But when they nominate an ever lesser show in its place it sorta defeats the point, don't you think?
Grey’s Anatomy, House, The Sopranos, 24, The West Wing
The drama category is always about big hits. And clearly The West Wing is to Emmy what crack is to Whitney. They just can't help themselves. Sadly some of televisions freshest and most fascinating shows like Big Love, Battlestar Galactica and Huff had to pick up mere scraps for nominations. The most inexplicable snubs? The touching last season of Six Feet Under and last year's Drama winner Lost both got heftier nomination totals than 60% of this lineup but still didn't place for the main prize. (???)
Finally allow me this self-indulgent cry of pain: The Emmy Voters ignored my discerning "TV Giveth. TV Taketh Away" post and to spite me gave Alfre Woodard a nomination for her thankless nothing role on Desperate Housewives whilst ignoring Mary McDonnell's best and juiciest role ever on Battlestar Galactica. This proves once and for all that Emmy votes either a) don't watch their tapes. b) are hopeless idiots or c) want me to suffer.
