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.
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.)
Big Love—don’t watch
Friday Night Lights-deserving
The Good Wife--deserving
Okay, so it can’t go here.
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?
Breaking Bad –don’t watch
Dexter –don’t watch
Treme—no idea what this is
What about this? Could it replace one of these?
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
The Good Wife
Mad Men • AMC • Lionsgate Television
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?
