    what?! HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER not on the list??

  • House and Lost very much deserve to make it to the final five. I’m pleasantly surprised to see Boston Legal on the final 10 list too. It’d be even better to see it make the final five, but I don’t think I’ll get my hopes up that much.

  • Pixelwoman

    My picks:
    Comedy:
    -The office (of course!!)
    -Pushing daisies (for its awsome start)
    -Ugly Betty (my guilty peasure)
    -30 Rock
    -Weeds

    Drama:

    -Dexter (best tv show ever!)
    -House (always good)
    -Grey’s Anatomy (my drama guilty pleasure)
    -Lost (great season finale)
    – Friday night lights

  • My Picks:

    Comedy:
    Family Guy
    The Office
    Pushing Daisies
    Ugly Betty
    Flight of the Conchords

    Drama:
    Lost
    Friday Night Lights
    Damages
    Dexter
    House

    I’ll be very pleased if Boston Legal isn’t nominated yet again. It’s a decent show but definitely not Emmy-worthy.

    When will people learn that Entourage is not a comedy? Comedy= funny. Entourage= not.

  • Mark

    Grey’s made the list? Seriously? I hope the Acadamy puts out a list of 10 for the actors and actresses categories, too.

    Comedy:
    Curb Your Enthusiasm
    Flight of the Conchords
    The Office
    30 Rock
    Weeds

    Drama:
    Damages
    Dexter
    House
    Lost
    Mad Men

  • Josh Emerson

    It annoys the hell out of me that How I Met Your Mother is never recognized!

    From this list, I would make the nominees…
    COMEDY:
    30 Rock
    The Office
    Pushing Daisies
    Family Guy
    Ugly Betty

    DRAMA:
    Dexter
    Grey’s Anatomy
    Lost
    ( and the other two don’t matter to me)

  • So sad to not see anything for Big Love, which really had an incredible second season. Ditto for HIMYM, and (I know I’m not the only one) for The New Adventures of Old Christine.

    And if The Wire isn’t at least nominated, I will die.

  • SimplyKimberly

    Someone should check with the postal service. Clearly none of the Emmy voters/nominators got their Battlestar Galactica DVDs.

  • If the last season of “Wire” doesn’t win something…I’ll probably break my tv!
    Maybe I should just not watch… =)

  • James

    If the Wire doesn’t win, I’m…..moving to Europe with Susan Sarandon.

  • James,

    so what you’re saying is that if THE WIRE doesn’t win, The Terrorists have won? 🙂

    The Wire the most impressive tv show of all time.

  • Jo

    Grey’s Anatomy.

    Did anyone see the second half of Season 4?
    AMAZING.
    Truely a step up from last Season.
