Big snubs for Jim Parsons and the Big Bang Theory in general, and Denis Leary and Rescue Me.

Happy with all the Big Love and Dexter nominations. They were the two best dramas on tv this year. Now only if one of them could take down the insanely overrated Mad Men...

Unfortunate that In Treatment didn't make any of the cuts, but I realize that HBO had to pick and choose what they wanted to promote.

A nice surprise was the nods for Thomas Jane and Jane Adams for Hung. Hung was unfairly knocked by the critics. It's a good show. Though I suspect HBO pulled a few strings to get Hung this recognition.

Where's the love for Gabriel Byrne and In Treatment who won last year he should win again next year and what about Parks & rec why isn't Amy Poehler nominated ?!!!! and Curb had one of its best seasons ever with the "Seinfeld Reunion" why didn't they get another nomination?! and in the film category they apparently didn't see Whatever Works or Invention of Lying two of the best films of the year!

Michael Emerson has got to win for Best Supporting Actor. He's like and artist the way he has developed Ben on Lost.

Usually i would agree, as Lost is my favorite tv show, but Lithgow's portrayal of the craziest serial killer ever was just phenomenal.

GLEE IS NOT A COMEDY, 30 ROCK SUCKED THIS YEAR AND, YES, ENOUGH OF THIS ENTOURAGE CRAP ALREADY - IT'S NOT FUNNY.

HOW ABOUT THE COMEDIES THAT WERE ACTUALLY GOOD THIS YEAR: PARKS AND REC, BETTER OFF TED, ALWAYS SUNNY...

@vasteland

It's Best Comedy/ Musical so even if you wouldn't consider Glee a comedy, it most definitely is a musical.

I agree with everything else you said though. If they were going to pick an HBO comedy it should have been CYE or any of the other shows you mentioned would have been worthy candidates over Entourage.

If John Lithgow doesn't win for 'Dexter'..... just sayin, someone needs to be on the kill table.

What about Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory? He's responsible for one of the best comedic characters on television.
