Emmy Award Nominations 2010: Our Gut Reactions

This might be the first Emmy nomination morning in a number of years that didn't leave us pounding our heads into the wall. That's not to say that there weren't a great deal of snubs (there were) or that undeserving people didn't get recognized (they did), but the number of happy surprises eased much of the frustration that we would otherwise feel. For us, the biggest pleasant surprise was that Friday Night Lights's tremendous husband and wife duo (played by Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton) were finally nominated for their years of brilliant, ignored work. The other big highlight was getting to watch nomination presenter Sofia Vergara stumble over pretty much everyone's name -- so much so that co-presenter Joel McHale generously pronounced "Hargitay" for her. And as if that wasn't enough to charm us, McHale also coped with his Emmy snub far better than we did, by simply shrugging and saying, "It's OK, I phoned it in." Is there an Emmy for best sport? Anyway, on with the rest of our initial reactions to this year's nominees.

TWoP 10: Most Pleasant Emmy Nomination Surprises

Sure, there were a lot of quality performances and shows overlooked during this year's Emmy nominations -- from the lack of acknowledgment for anything related to Community or Sons of Anarchy to the scarcely few nominations for Parks and Recreation. And we're still scratching our heads as to how Tony Shalhoub got another nom. But with that said, there were plenty of pleasant surprises that we're genuinely excited about.
