THE GOOD: theTVaddict is thrilled that the WEST WING was recognized for a fantastic final season. SCRUBS and ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT received much deserved Best Comedy Nods – afterall, they are the two best comedies on TV. A close second of course is THE OFFICE, which received a nomination for best comedy and a best lead actor nod for STEVE CARELL. Finally Will Arnett received a long overdue Supporting Actor Nomination for his brilliant portrayal of GOB on ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT (A moment of silence for the most original show on Television). DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES received a much deserved zero major nominations. Let’s hope it’s a wake up call for the writers to actually come up with a good mystery for season 3. Finally, LISA KUDROW got recognized for the underrated comedy gem THE COMEBACK. Kudrow was amazing as Valerie Cherish, and she definitely deserved to be nominated.
THE BAD: Yet again the little netlets that could were ignored. EVEROOD, VERONICA MARS, GILMORE GIRLS, EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS were completely shut out. Naturally I’m not surprised, but this just proves that yet again the EMMY VOTERS don’t watch TV. BATTLESTAR GALACTICA was ignored. Again, expected. But seriously, this show is far more then a sci-fi show. It definitely deserved a best drama nod.
THE UGLY: TWO AND A HALF MEN, seriously! I’m sorry, I don’t get the appeal of this generic, formulaic CBS laugher. The only thing that’s funny about CHARLIE SHEEN is his personal life. STOCKARD CHANNING for OUT OF PRACTICE? Again, I realize the Emmy Voters are completely obsessed with Mrs. Channing, but awarding her for a show nobody watched…. again… get with the program Emmy Voters. Continuing on the CBS Front, how Doogie, I mean NEAL PATRICK HARRIS didn’t receive a Best Supporting Actor nomination is insane. Nobody steals the scene, or the show for that matter like Barney.
