Go to for a complete list of this year’s Emmy nominees.

For all the latest TV news and reviews

  • So far, the nominations look good…

  • Love the Best Drama nominations. I’m shocked but pleased that Boston Legal got a nod, and I’m glad that House and Heroes didn’t get overlooked either. I’m okay with Grey’s Anatomy, although I find it a bit over-rated at times. I don’t watch Sopranos, but I figure it’s hype must mean something, so it doesn’t surprise me.

    Odd that Lead Drama Actress got six nods. I’d say Sally Field deserves her nomination.

    Thrilled to see Hugh Laurie and James Spader get their nods.

    I don’t care about Lead Comedy Actor, but I’m pulling for America Ferrera in Lead Comedy Actress and Ugly Betty as Best Comedy.

  • James

    How can you LOVE the best drama nominations when the Lost and the Wire are not selections. I do not watch Boston Legal, House and Grey’s Anatomy, but I do know that Lost is better than Heroes. In its third season Lost was better than Heroes’s first season, a season that did not hold back a lot in order to get more of a following.

  • No ELIZABETH MITCHEL? She was great playing Juliet, she made the last parts of season 3 exciting,

  • survivor not nominated and American Idol is? what the

  • Boston Legal over Friday Night Lights and Lost?

  • Common Sense

    I’m with James.

    The omission of LOST as Best Drama Series diminishes the credibility of every other nomination posted above. And please, don’t give me that crap about the producers submitting “the wrong episode” or something. This show is, hands down, the best drama on television now…and, as I have stated before, I believe it’s the best and most-groundbreaking show in TV history. This slap is absolutely laughable, and once again shows just how out of touch Emmy voters are with reality. Grey’s? Ha ha—give me a break! The backstage drama is better than the show. Boston Legal? Oh, come ON! The Emmy voters’ infatuation with Spader and Shatner knows no boundries…we get it, you like them. But give it a rest…they’re NOT even close to being the best on TV.

  • Why are there 6 nominees in some categories?

  • WolfKing

    No Lost, no Veronica Mars (EVER…Buffy & Angel all over again), no Friday Night Lights, no Scrubs?

    Its obvious to me that the Emmy people just want to nominate popular shows regardless of quality (Two and a Half Men, come on…) in order to get ratings for their own broadcast. Which is ironic I suppose, but whatever. It’s as if they just look at ratings and at mainstream critical acclaim (Sopranos) rather than, you know, actually watching TV. This contempt for quality TV (how could you not watch and love FNL? I live in Dublin, don’t play sport, and yet I still find myself engaged in the characters, in the small-town community depite it being totally different from my own), only cheapens the nominations for the genuinely deserving shows/actors, I mean who cares if Steve Carell beats that Monk guy, or vice versa? Their in different leagues, and either way the victory is worthles. Bad, bad Emmy people.

  • Jake

    *yawn* Is it just me or am I just seeing pretty much the same thing once again? With a few exceptions of course.

    I don’t see a nod for Scrubs for comedy series. LMAO, Two and a Half Men… omg… I still don’t get it. Lost and FNL got snubbed from drama. Heck, I even think Studio 60 was better than Bostan Legal… but that’s just me lol. Seriously, this season of Grey’s sucked, why is it even nominated again?

    FNL got snubbed in the acting categories too! Well on the bright side Masi Oka gets a nod for his role as Hiro Nakamura lol. Supahiro! =D.

    Eh, boycotting Emmys once again.

  • Once again guys (and gals!) you’re all on the ball. This year more than ever it’s clear that EMMY voters do not actually watch the shows they vote on. Or at the very least the producers of TWO AND A HALF MEN have some very incriminating photos of each and every voter.

    This year alone, I’ve watched two full episodes of TWO AND A HALF MEN and failed to laugh. Quite literally I sat in front of my TV bored. How voters think TWO AND A HALF MEN is more deserving than SCRUBS, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER and THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE is unbelievable.

    The Good: The Office, Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer, Ricky Gervais, 30 Rock, Tina Fey, The Colbert Report and Stephen Colbert, The Daily Show and Jon Stewart, Michael Emerson and Terry O’Quinn

    The Bad: No FNL or Lost, no Kyle Chandler or Connie Britton, no Matthew Fox, no Elizabeth Mitchell.

    The Why? (in my opinion) of those that did get nommed – Boston Legal, Two and a Half Men, Tony Shaloub (I don’t think he’s bad but there were others I thought should have been in)

  • Perdue

    Once again, Lauren Graham got no nomination … It sucks.

  • Dominique

    No Michael C. Hall for Dexter?????????????????????????????????????????????? But anyway just the fact that Grey’s Anatomy got any noms after a crappy third season is enough for me to not care about the Emmy this year! But it is not like I care for them since they never get it right.

  • Linda B.

    One HUGE, SHOCKING omission i see is no Dexter! They gave lead actress in a drama series 6 nominations, i think they could’ve squeezed Michael C. Hall in there. That show is briliiant. It had me hooked from the very first episode.

    On another note, I’m happy to see 30 Rock up for best comedy. That should give the show a nice boost.

  • The Good: Ugly Betty (America Ferrera and Vanessa Williams), 30 Rock, Neil Patrick Harris for How I Met Your Mother (What a surprise!)
    The Bad: No FNL. No Kyle Chandler nor Connie Britton. No Lost. No Elizabeth Mitchell. No Dexter. Grey’s Anatomy, after a disastrous third season, is now overrated, in my opinion. Such a waste of Emmy nods this year.

    I think it’s sad that they just choose the same shows over and over witha few “break out hits” being added each year. I’m really upset that The Wire is continually snubbed especially after a season that talked about corruption in our local governments and the effects on school children. It was interesting and each week really spole about what’s going on.

    And how can you leave out Scrubs?! They did a freaking hilarious musical episode and killed off a character this season!

  • Nick

    The Emmys are IRRELEVENT, and it’s their own doing. Why anyone would care about who those relics deem worthy is beyond me. TV viewers are more savvy than those suits who, year after year, want to nominate older, veteran actors as a career nod. And someone needs to tell these people that Grey’s and DH lost their cache long ago. If they can’t follow (i.e. “understand”) the brilliance of a show like LOST, they just need to get out of the biz. I mean, it wins Best Drama in its first year, and is not even *nominated* the next two years? Complete joke.

  • Everybody Hates Chris is funnier than Two and a Half Men

  • Brian

    BATTLESTAR GALACTICA? Are you people deaf, dumb, and blind? MICHAEL HOGAN?

  • cam3150

    I’m thrilled for The Office, my favorite show!!!

    I’m also glad to see Michael Emerson finally get some recognition.

    But Matthew Fox should have been nominated for that finale alone!!! Especially the scene w/ “Ben” in where he believes his friends have been shot because he didn’t turn over the satellite phone, and then he beats the crap out of Ben and threatens to kill Tom. That scene gives me chills every time!

  • Linda B.

    cam3150 – I think the last scene w/ him and Kate at the airport where he says they should go back – i think that deserved him a nom.

    You really wonder which episodes were shown to the voters who made the list of nominations. I wonder if shows really try harder for certain actors to get nominations over others.

  • the-good-shepherd

    Ok, they gotta be kidding me!!!
    Where’s DEXTER, where’s BSG, where’s FNL, where’s LOST ????? Not to mention the great Actors working at these Shows that really delivered a superb Performance during the whole Season…..

  • Linda — I wonder if the fake beard did Matthew Fox in 🙂

  • I wasn’t a huge fan of Lost’s third season, but I did forget about Elizabeth Mitchell. She does deserve a nod for her work in reviving Lost.

  • shanna

    Oh yeah. When you add Elizabeth Mitchell to the mix and Kyle Chandler on FNL come on. I also think that there’s a biasis against younger actors. Zack Gilford gave stunning performances this year as Matt especially dealing with his sick grandmother and a father who’d rather be at war than with him. Clearly it’s not about watching TV it’s about propping up shows that already have support of the industry.

  • samantha

    I know that Sally Field is a legendary actress, but Mariska Hargitay deserves to win (again). Her amazing talent is unbelievable! Law & Order: SVU keeps getting better and better and as long as Mariska has the role of Detective Olivia Benson, I believe that she deserves to win every award she is nominated for. If Edie Falco deserved to win this year, then she would’ve won it last year, becuase everybody said the final season of The Sopranos was horrible. Law & Order: SVU seasons are always top notch and so is Mariska’s talent.

  • Mark

    Ive been watching scrubs since season 1, and it just keeps getting better, yet you couldnt tell that through Emmy nominations. After watching last season there was no doupt in my mind that it was the best show on tv, better the The Office, better than two and a half men, and way better than the waste of air time show Ugly Betty, but still noting has happened. My advice to you is sit down and watch just one episode of last season and than youll know what im talking about. Yeah Steve Carell is funny, and the directors, producers, and writers have done an awesome job on that show, but it still has come together at the level Scrubs has. Zach Braff and the rest of the perfect cast of Scrubs is as much and even more deserving of these nominations. Its time for something new. The Sopranoes had its glory, we just lost a great show with Will and Grace, but now its time to wake up and see how good this show really is.
