Over the past 24 hours, theTVaddict has received a lot of comments on how Lauren Graham was robbed once again for her long overdue Emmy Nomination. Here’s the thing, while Lauren Graham is the heart and soul of GILMORE GIRLS, she really didn’t deserve a nomination this year. Lauren Graham was submitted into the Lead Actress in a Comedy. Let me ask you this, what exactly was ‘funny’ about Lorelai’s storyline during this past season? Was it her crumbling relationship with Luke? Her drunken meltdown at Lane’s wedding? Or having to watch her gifted daughter throw her life away and drop out of college?
Don’t get me wrong, for five years Lauren Graham deserved a Lead Actress in a Comedy Emmy Nomination as much as anyone, but this year wasn’t it. Nothing about the trials and tribulations of Lorelai made me laugh this year. Let’s hope David Rosenthal puts the ‘funny’ back into Stars Hollow for what is most likely the final season.
