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! ;-)

Everything you've said about The Sopranos? WORD. I stopped watching after they killed off Adrianna ... that, in my mind? One of the last good eps that show has churned out, tight writing, and her swansong was emotional and shocking without being melodramatic. Too bad this whole season wasn't treated with the same care. Argh.

And big-up! to teh Meloni ... accolades for him are loooong overdue *fangirl squee!*

Oh totally. Adrianna's storyline kept me hooked through last season but when she was gone? You realized how dull and pointless the rest of it is. All these boring supporting characters we don't give a crap about getting their own episodes? NO THANKS!

Yay for Meloni! I hope he wins. ;-) Kiefer's already got a few trophies on his shelf.
