  • Dan Clarendon

    Irina! Good comparison there.

  • Armando A

    Do you really think Michael Emerson should win?? And yes Ted Danson made a really good job as Frobisher on Damages, but Zeljko Ivanek performance was way better than all the 2 named before! I mean he played a kick-ass lawyer, bad husband, gay men, good friend and ended (SPOILER) himself! That it’s not something everybody can perform in the right way as he did!

    I concur, Dan & Addict….Irina is a great comparison. Man, how I miss that show at its peak.

    If Michael Emerson does not win this award, they might as well just stop having the ridiculous ceremony. I get so tired of the “academy” just giving career-nods to aging actors (see Danson and Shatner) who really don’t deserve it…..rather than the most-compelling actor working in television.

    Emerson is the BEST reason for watching LOST…and trust me, folks, there are millions of reasons to watch it. But Ben is the bomb.

  • Josh C.

    i’d love to chime in and say whether or nor i agree but to be honest………i dont watch any of the shows these guys are nominated for. i know bad me

  • tim wilkins

    based on what I watch, lost’s emerson should win. didn’t see damages and do not watch boston legal.
