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! ;-)

I didn't look at all the technical things. I'm glad Henry Ian Cusick got a nod as I thought Desmond was a great character and I was surprised beyond words to actually love his backstory. Who knew?!

Word on everything else. ;)

What's your icon of? Something comic booky? X-Men?

Heh, I just scanned the list looking for noms of shows that I actually like. Supernatural even got one for sound mixing. :D

And yeah, that's Gambit and Rogue. I'm feeling very comic booky here lately. ;) I guess because X3 let me down so, I needed to retreat into the good canon-ness.

*Matches your Desmond icon*

Yay for random technical nominations. ;-)

Aha. I have to agree that X3 was a real comedown. And I have no desire to see Superman Returns. Why Bryan, why?

And hurrah for Drinky!Desmond.

But SR was so PRETTY!

Eh. That cast does nothing for me whatsoever. There are several other movies out there I'm much more interested in.

PoTC I'm guessing by your Depp icon? ;) Yeah, me too, but the hubby has informed me that he'll chew tin foil for fun before he goes to see that. ;)

I'll admit that Bosworth is not on my favorite (I mean, seriously, what has she done other than be Orlando Bloom's girlfriend?) and Marsden needs to find a job OTHER than that of 'the other boyfriend,' but visually? It was really stunning.

Well, turns out hubby is right. BLEAH. :-(

I don't see how Superman Returns couldn't be better. Hell, X3 was better!!
