Snubbed

So, the Emmy nominations came out yesterday (just when I was trying to figure out a topic for today. How convenient!). Supernatural was nowhere to be seen.

Aside from editing and music and hairstyles (????) and title design, here’s the categories where it could have gone.

Art direction

Glee

Heroes

Lost

Modern Family

True Blood

The Tudors

I love me some Glee, but art direction? No. And while I don’t like Heroes anymore, it does have some great art direction. Supernatual could have gone here in place of Glee. (I don’t watch Modern Family, but I hope The Tudors wins, because that is one beautiful show.)

****

Casting

Big Love—don’t watch

Dexter—don’t watch

Friday Night Lights-deserving

The Good Wife--deserving

True Blood--deserving

Mad Men—deserving

Okay, so it can’t go here.

****

Cinematography

Breaking Bad—don’t watch

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation –don’t watch, but please

FlashForward –stopped watching

Mad Men –deserving

The Tudors –deserving

So I don’t know—could it go here?

****

Directing

Breaking Bad –don’t watch

Dexter –don’t watch

Lost --deserving

Mad Men--deserving

Treme—no idea what this is

What about this? Could it replace one of these?

****

Lead Actor

Breaking Bad--Bryan Cranston as Walter White

Dexter --Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan

Friday Night Lights Kyle Chandler as Eric Taylor

House Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House

Lost Matthew Fox as Jack Shephard

Mad Men Jon Hamm as Don Draper

Okay, Kyle deserves it for sure. Matthew Fox, maybe. But haven’t Hugh and Jon had ENOUGH nominations here? Move over for Jensen!

****

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

Breaking Bad Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman—don’t watch

Damages Martin Short as Leonard Winstone—don’t watch

Lost Terry O'Quinn as John Locke—HELL yeah

Lost Michael Emerson as Ben Linus—Also, HELL yeah

Mad Men John Slattery as Roger Sterling

Men Of A Certain Age Andre Braugher as Owen—don’t watch but love Andre like damn and whoa.

What do you say we kick John or Aaron or Martin out for Bobby or Cass?

****

Outstanding Drama Series

Breaking Bad

Dexter

The Good Wife

Lost

Mad Men • AMC • Lionsgate Television

True Blood

I love True Blood but was disappointed in the second season. Still, there’s a lot to be said for buzz. Which would you kick out to give Supernatural a chance?

Any place else you can see to put our favorite show?
