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! ;-)

This time of year always makes me wallow because John C. McGinley NEVER gets nommed and it breaks my heart. It's like it affects me personally. Heh.

But seriously, Sean Hayes again? But no Johnny C? What a crock of shit.

However, I was extremely happy to see that the SPN pilot got nods - even if it was for music/sound editing only. It still made me *squee*, as we all know the WB is notorious for getting completely overlooked.

Will & Grace. *sigh* At least this the last year it can be in the running.

I didn't look at all the technical nods, but yay for SPN getting some recognition! ;-) And yes, the WB always got shafted at Emmy time. What else is new?!
