    Drama category seems pretty stacked with good shows.

    You watch?

    My favorite episode in the past two seasons was the ex girlfriend driving around in the outfield calling Terry an *** hole.

Doesn't sound like Glee really deserved to get nominated, but there would have been insane backlash if it wasn't, I'm sure. I am a little surprised that Community didn't get some attention over Big Bang Theory. Maybe they were worried about being NBC-heavy.

    Because HBO and Showtime shows are good.

    My favorite shows:

    Sopranos
    True Blood
    The Tudors
    Weeds
    Nurse Jackie
    Game of Thrones
    Entourage
    US of Tara
    BoardWalk
    Hung
    Big Love
    Rome
    Carnivale (still mad this was not renewed)
    Oz
    Six Feet Under
    Dexter
    .....

    The only series on regular TV that I DVR are DIY shows, Modern Family & Big Bang, (edit and Justifed)

    Re: Emmy Nominations

    Game of Thrones nominated, that is awesome. Probably won't win but its a pretty incredible feat for a genre show to even be nominated. Definitely the best show I've seen on TV in a few years. I am really gonna have to catch up on Justified, hear good things about it. I didn't realize Timothy Olyphant was in it, haven't seen him much since Deadwood (another great HBO show).

    I don't get the Glee love.

    I don't think you're in the target audience for that show, but I could be wrong.

    Re: Emmy Nominations

    although I like Modern Family, don't think it was right to give them 4 of the 6 noms for supporting actor.

    Re: Emmy Nominations

    Also, I really wish they'd seperate the drama category into network category and cable category. It's really not fair to the network shows who have to run twice as many shows a year. It's not like there aren't enough quality drama's to do it.

    The reason so many HBO series are nominated is because the Emmy's are based on quality, not how many people watch the shows. If it was based on quantity of viewers we'd just have a bunch of boring procedurals and crappy reality shows. HBO series get so many nods because for years they have been a cut above the rest of television, though finally other cable channels like Showtime and AMC have been catching up in recent years.

    I realize that. I watch Game of Thrones and watched Deadwood and a few others. Im just saying that a lot of other channels with more eyes get shafted.

    Yeah seriously, how is Community now on there? I think Glee has overstayed its welcome.

    Yeah I agree, but I think the Office is losing its touch. I think the Community is the main reason I tune in Thursday and I use to be a huge Office and 30 Rock fan. I also think Parks and Rec really improved this year.



    Also, isn't this category comedy/music and that is why Glee won last year?
