Emmy Award Nominations 2013: Our Gut Reactions

Emmy Award Nominations 2013: Our Gut Reactions

It's a very good day to be Elisabeth Moss. She snagged a nomination for her role as Peggy on Mad Men and another for her miniseries Top of the Lake. Also, if you are working at Netflix, there's probably a big ol’ party happening right now. It is not, however, such a great day to be anyone involved in Parks & Rec (aside from Amy Poehler), The Americans, Justified, Orphan Black or New Girl. See who got nominated for what and get our initial reactions to the announcements.

Emmy Award Nominations 2009: Our Gut Reactions

It's Emmy Award nomination day, which means that we all get insanely frustrated when quality programs get snubbed, while some old standbys get put on the list out of habit. While there were quite a few welcome surprises this year, and some truly deserving television spotlighted, it's pretty clear that the Emmy voters did not take heed and follow our wish list very closely. On the plus side, while watching the nomination announcements this morning, we got to see Grey's Anatomy's Chandra Wilson and Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons read off the main categories, and we love both of them. So that was something. Let's break it down category by category, shall we?

TWoP 10 Reasons the Emmys Should Be Cancelled Forever

TWoP 10 Reasons the Emmys Should Be Cancelled Forever

After suffering through the tedium of three hours of badly scripted banter and ridiculous reality hosts trying to cobble together a show, we've had enough. Hollywood has enough ceremonies on TV where they sit and pat each other on the backs, and we're tired of sitting through them all. At least the Creative Arts Emmys have the good decency to do it on the DL and air them when people can ignore them -- unlike the Emmys, which are a big fancy event with hours of red carpet footage and a ceremony to boot. And if they're going to continue to air them, couldn't people at least go back to wearing wild outfits?

Why <I>30 Rock</I> Deserved The Best Comedy Series Emmy Last Night (Yes, Even More Than <I>The Office</I>) This morning when I hopped online to check out the rest of the world's post-Emmys reactions, I noticed mostly the stuff I expected to see -- the five hosts were crap, Bryan Cranston's win was an upset, yay Mad Men, etc -- but one thing I noticed from both my friends and blog commenters from around the Interwebs was a 30 Rock backlash I didn't even know existed. Well, I'm here to tell you why 30 Rock deserved its Best Comedy Series win last night, detractors!

Emmy Nominations Revealed: What Were They Thinking?

Emmy Nominations Revealed: What Were They Thinking?

I hate Emmy nomination announcement morning. I come in to work all full of summer happiness and then end up feeling annoyed for the rest of the day. Every. Single. Year. I knew it was going to happen based on the short lists, but still, how is Boston Legal still considered one of the best shows on television? It certainly isn't better than The Wire. I'm about ready to throw in the towel on this antiquated awards show. Either that or start a vigilante group to go after nomination voters in the night. Oh, that's a great idea for a reality show. Irritated television critic goes crazy and starts posting pictures of Dexter in people's homes, threatening that he'll come after them unless they start choosing better shows. That said, I am happy that Dexter made the list, and even happier that Grey's Anatomy didn't.
