The biggest Emmy snubs

Posted on


Beckinewton_lI’m actually relatively happy at the moment. Perhaps because I don’t watch 24, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, or Friday Night Lights — all of which failed to receive Outstanding Drama Series Emmy nods this morning. (Check out the full list of nominees here.) I personally would’ve put Brothers & Sisters in Grey’s Anatomy‘s slot. However, I humbly accept that surprise and well-deserved Boston Legal love in the category (its first time!) and say thank you, TV Academy.

PopWatch — and EW’s Nicholas Fonseca, especially— would like to express our condolences to Ugly Betty‘s Becki Newton (pictured), whose fine work as receptionist Amanda went unrecognized in the comedy supporting actress category. We were hoping she’d inherit Megan Mullally’s  funniest-hag-on-TV slot. Maybe next year. PopWatch’s Mike Slezak also notes the absence of love for Newton and wonders why there was no recognition for The Office‘s John Krasinski or any nominations at all for the CW, save for a sound editing nod for Smallville.

While you’re waiting for EW’s TV critic Gillian Flynn to weigh in on the good and bad of this morning’s list, tell us the omissions that have you fuming.

UPDATE: Gillian’s reaction is in and she’s got your back on The Wire.
