Snappy Judgments: 2009 Emmy Nominations!

Posted on

Emmy-snap-judgment_l I’m Super-Ecstatic About:

•    Best drama nod for Big Love.

•    How I Met Your Mother finally breaks into the best comedy category.

•    Jeremy Piven gets snubbed for best supporting actor, clearing the way for Neil Patrick Harris’ long overdue win.

•    Michael J. Fox up for guest actor for Rescue Me.

•    Emmy voters make Howie Mandel pay for ruining last year’s Emmys by snubbing him for best reality host. Even better: They gave the slot to Amazing Race emcee Phil Keoghan.

•    Jim Parsons!

•    Jane Krakowski, Tracy Morgan, and Jack McBrayer among 30 Rock‘s 172 nominations.

•    Aaron Paul breaks through for Breaking Bad.

•    Supporting comedy nods for two of my favorite Kristins (Wiig and Chenoweth).

•    Elisabeth Moss!

•    My incredibly prescient predictions.

Keep reading to find out which nominations/snubs made me want to hit someone in the face sad.

Yawns to:

•    Entourage gets a nod for its worst season yet.

•    Tony Shalhoub.

•    Anything involving Boston Legal.

I’m Super-Pissed About:

•    Nothing for the final season of The Shield or Walton Goggins.

•    Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton get the shaft again. Also unacceptable: No FNL for best drama.

•    Nothing for Chuck or Zach Levi.

•    Big Bang Theory is a bust in comedy series category. (But woo-hoo Jim Parsons!)

•    Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloe Sevigny, and Ginnifer Goodwin get no love for Big.

•    Michael Urie’s Ugly snub.

OK, that’s my two cents’ worth. Now it’s your turn. Post your own snappy judgments below.
