I vote for Pushing Daisies all the way. But, what I don't get is why isn't Kristin Chenoweth nominated for Pushing Daisies as Olive Snook? I find that, IMO, to be a little off and odd.

I am glad to see some nominations for Chuck. That series is the best new series I have seen this year.

Amazingly few noms for network shows...which is well deserved. But, glad that Pushing Daisies is being recognized!

Although I'm glad they're showing Pushing Daisies some love, what about The Office and 30 Rock for best comedy? Lost and Damages for Best Drama and Mary Louise Parker for Best Actress in a Comedy?

Yeah, Mad Men! And Dexter! I'm thrilled MCH was also nominated, but sorry Jon Hamm didn't get one. Mad Men is a wonderful ensemble, but Hamm is still the center. How many scenes were there in the entire season without him in it? Surprisingly few.
