Emmy nominations

So just got up and saw the noms. (What? I was up late last night!)

They snubbed Lost, which shouldn't come as a big surprise. Yes, it won last year but S2 was definitely nowhere near as good as S1. Still, is it a better show than The Sopranos? HELL YEAH. The Sopranos is the most overrated show in the history of television. I can't believe it's still getting good reviews at this stage in its life. It's dull, incredibly pretentious, talky and pointless. I got HBO again just for its return but stopped watching before the end of this season. Face it folks, it's a shadow of the show it used to be. I've personally never cared much for House or West Wing. *shrugs* So, despite my problems with Lost this year, I'd still put it in there ahead of those two shows.

But I'm excited that 24 is getting a lot of love, not only for Kiefer but for the magnificent acting of Gregory Itzin & Jean Smart. I do wish Reiko Aylesworth had gotten a nom for S3, dammit, but if they were going to start recognizing supporting players, this is a good year to do it.

Also, Desmond!!! ;-) Yay! And Christina Yang. Those nominations make me happy.

And I had to give foxxcub a call just now to let her know that her boy, Christopher Meloni, got a nomination at long last. YAAAY! ;-)

You know how I feel about the Sopranos, seriously, I didn't even watch half this season and to be honest, they waited too long for the season to start..and yet, Deadwood gets cancelled.

They cancel Rome, I think the cable company is going to get a call.

BUT YAY!!! 24, I just saw that Jean got a nomination, she so SO deserves it, and really, that show is just so damn good, I'm so happy I started watching it.

And Chris, it's about freakin' time..I've been waiting for this since the all time best season ever of Oz..Season 3.

I don't watch Grey's, and to be honest, if it didn't win anything, I wouldn't be heartbroken at all, I'm sick of all the Dr. McDreamy stuff..but I do have to say I'm torn between Kyle and Henry for best guest star.

I don't get the continued love affair with The Sopranos. It's OVER and it's been over for a long time. Really, it only had about two good seasons.

The 24 noms made me very happy. Jean Smart absolutely deserves it. She's terrific in everything I've ever seen her in.

I agree Meloni is long overdue for some recognition!

Grey's is a good show. Not the best on TV, but very watchable. I'd have to give the award to Henry because Kyle was only in one two-part episode and only had a few scenes. Henry was a much bigger presence on Lost and did a much better job, I think.
