Excellent analysis...some of my thoughts -

- I'm over Law & Order not being nominated. That said, where's Everwood? Or The OC?
- I'm glad Prime Suspect 6 and Helen Mirren were nominated, but I actually didn't think it was as good as past ones.
- Will & Grace is beyond me - I think Sean Hayes and Megan Mulally are great, but the show's weakest link is Grace, who bugs.
- Al Pacino just gobbles gobbles gobbles scenery. Nothing is left!
- Dave Chappelle would have been an awesome host.

What a waste of time the Emmys have become... Soproanos for all it's greatness had a down year and gets 20 nominations... Deadwood, one of the most cutting edged shows on TV today with some of the best writing and best character development on TV doesn't get a best drama nomination? What a joke. Same for Ian McShane, his portrayal of Al Swearengin has to be one of if not the best played character on TV today.

Perhaps the excellent "Deadwood" didn't get a best drama nom because the Emmy folks couldn't find a clean clip to air at the awards show and mad-bleeping would make it too reminiscent of Sough Park clips.

Come to think of it... that sucks because I've grown to really like Deadwood - even letting it edge Carnivale out of my favorite series esteem.

Oh well. More thoughts 09/19, cuz that's when the awards are, no?

Ian McShane. Ian McShane. Ian McShane.

I'm going to go drown my sorrows in canned peaches.

Surprisingly enough, I agree with ALL of the above comments. And I can't believe I forgot to mention Everwood, Jen. I would put it up there above Joan of Arcadia let alone The West Wing. I thought about mentioning The O.C., but the show wasn't as strong at the end of the season at the beginning, when to me it definitely transcended simple guilty pleasure into an actually complex guilty pleasure.

I was just responding to what was televised and hadn't even looked over the full list, but I'm ecstatic at the Chappelle's Show recognition. And considering that Deadwood actually managed to get 11 nominations, I guarantee Ian McShane got screwed primarily because of "cocksucker."

Matt LeBlanc is nominated for Best Actor, but Jason Bateman isn't? Now that's just wrong.

How could they overlook Ian McShane of Deadwood??? *&@#! Idiots!

I have to disagree about The Simpsons. Though I still love the show, the writing is not nearly as sharp as it was three years ago. It's funny and all, but I feel that we're nearly at the end for Springfield. I get my animated satire fix courtesy of South Park these days.

And while Arrested Development is hysterical and Jason Bateman should have definitely been nominated, where's the nomination for Scrubs?! Will & Grace sucks it big time, as does Everybody Loves Raymond. Scrubs is far superior to both in every way. Why treat Zach Braff and the ever-amazing John C McGinley so poorly? Why?

No nominations for the very strong final season of "Angel?" Bite me.

Besides Ian McShane (his omission is simply incomprehensible), where were the nominations for Peter Gallagher, Keith Carradine and Brendan Fraser's devastating guest shot on Scrubs? Not to mention John McGinley, Kelly Bishop and Lauren Graham. Good to see that Deadwood got the only non-Sopranos writing nomination and glad to see that the Academy has finally realized that The Tonight Show is a piece of shit.

The West Wing nominations are just lazy voting. Jason Bateman should have been nominated. Obviously the academy just doesn't like Scrubs - idiots. Doesn't anyone in the academy watch the WB? Lauren Graham and Kelly Bishop are long overdue.

One question, what do you have against Jennifer Garner. She's amazing. She's deserves the nomination.
