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! ;-)

"The Sopranos" are still on?Really?I never understood why this show is so damn popular.
I'm not surprised at all that LOST is not nominated.I'm a bad fangirl,but they deserved the nomination this year.Though,I'm surprised that no actors were nominated-no Josh:(

I'm very happy for Chris Melonie,of course and way to go,Des!

The Sopranos was very good the first two seasons, but honestly, back then, I was more into Oz. That was much more riveting of a show, if you ask me.

Aww, as long as Josh is as sexy as he is, he'll never get any awards recognition. It's the way these things seem to work. Except for Meloni, LOL. But then again he's not viewed as a "sex symbol" as much in the industry, I think.

Sopranos were never my thing.I tried to watch,but Oz was rocking hard back then:)

Chris got his first nom after 10 years or so of amazing job on every single role?Josh has time:)
