Who should get Emmy nominations?
We’re only about a month away from Emmy nomination announcements, and Gold Derby has posted a fascinating rundown of which shows and actors are lobbying for peer recognition. To date, no money’s been spent on ”for your consideration” trade ads for dearly departed favorites such as Arrested Development, Alias, and Everwood (though some of the shows’ cast members are getting pushes). Even more puzzling to me, though, is the absence of a push for the awesomely hateful Lance Barber (The Comeback‘s Paulie G) and Emily Procter, whose Calleigh Duquesne is pretty much the only reason to watch CSI: Miami anymore.
On the flip side, series seeking their initial nominations range from totally deserving (Battlestar Galactica, The Comeback) to downright bizarre (how ironic that the funniest thing about NBC’s Teachers is the materialization of its ridonkulous Emmy campaign).
Whatever happens, a nomination for any of the following folks — Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff or Tricia Helfer, Arrested Development‘s Will Arnet, or Desperate Housewives‘ Harriet Sansom Harris — would make my month. And a nomination for The Comeback‘s Lisa Kudrow, who dug so deeply and fearlessly into her Valerie Cherish character for 13 sad, funny, and underappreciated episodes — well, that would make my frackin’ year. But, of course, you already knew that. So tell me, who would you like to see get an Emmy nod come July 8? And who shouldn’t go seeking it in the first place?
