Posted on

* The nods for Friday Night Lights‘ long-overdue leads, Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton.

* Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler being up for lead actress.

* Glee standout Chris Colfer sneaking into the supporting-actor race. Ditto his awesome TV dad, Mike O’Malley (for guest actor).

* Elizabeth Mitchell snagging a guest-actress nod for Lost. Ditto Matthew Fox (for lead actor).

* All the Modern Family love.

* Jim Parsons’ second consecutive nod for The Big Bang Theory.

* The Good Wife‘s rockin’ female trio (Julianna Margulies, Archie Panjabi, and Christine Baranski) all making the cut.

* Burn Notice breaking through via a nod for Sharon Gless.

I’m Rolling My Eyes About:

* Two words: Tony Shalhoub.

* Two more words: Jon Cryer.

I’m Super-Pissed About:

* Emmy recognizing the entire Modern family except Ed O’Neill.

* No best-drama nod for Friday Night Lights. Voters also neglected to recognize season 4 MVP Zach Gilford.

* Emmy flunking Community.

* No love for Chuck.

* Timothy Olyphant’s unJustified snub.

* The absence of Fringe‘s John Noble.

* Cougar Town getting bubkes.

* Ugly Betty‘s stellar final season going unnoticed.

* House‘s Lisa Edelstein getting overlooked yet again.

* Sons of Anarchy’s Katey Sagal getting screwed.

* Diddlysquat for Spartacus: Blood and Sand and star Andy Whitfield.

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