Hugh Laurie should have been nominated for his role as Greg House. At least the show was nominated.
Good to see Dennis Leary and Jaime Pressley get nominated. Shatner's a lock.
Raisel Ghul, the Demon's Head
Make that a thing.
I am very surprised to not see Edie Falco nominated.
Great to see Sandra Oh nominated - Grey's Anatomy and Lost are the best shows on television IMO.

Pressley is fantastic on 'Earl.' I'm pleasantly surprised to see her get the recognition.Originally Posted by M2

Nice to see "The Office" get some recognition. Along with The Simpsons, easily the funniest and best written shows on TV
More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
I can't get into House -- maybe my brain just isn't wired to find medical television interesting, but it really does seem like every week is the exact same show: "Oh wow, here's a patient that's going to die unless House solves the illness. Oh look! House is breaking all kinds of traditiona, ethical rules, and whatnot to win this week."Originally Posted by Sweetstop
For my money, the three best shows on TV are (were) The West Wing, Rescue Me, and Battlestar Galactica. The latter of those three I would never expect to be critically lauded, despite the fact that it has some of the best acting/writing on television, but I'm glad to see that the former two got the respect they deserved for great seasons.
Oh yeah, and Stephen Colbert should get his own Emmy for just being totally awesome. That is all.
24 Years and Counting...
The Greg House character...brilliant diagnostician, train-wreck of a character, ...is what makes the show good. W/o Hugh Laurie I wouldn't watch it.
The West Wing was wonderful last year. Alan Alda probably deserves that Supporting Actor in a Drama award, too.
