Newsflash: 2010 Emmy Nominations

The 2010 Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and a surprising number of shows covered here at Billie Doux received nominations, including Lost, Glee, and True Blood!

Glee was showered with the most love, receiving 19 nominations. Nominations include Best Comedy, Matthew Morrison (Will) for Best Lead Actor, Lea Michelle (Rachel) for Best Lead Actress, and Jane Lynch (Sue) and Chris Colfer (Kurt) for Supporting Actress and Actor. Even the guest actors received some shout outs with Mike O'Malley (Kurt's dad), Neil Patrick Harris (Bryan Ryan), and Kristen Chenowith (April) getting nominations.

Lost also got several nominations for its final season, including Best Drama, Matthew Fox for Lead Actor, Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson for Supporting Actor, and Elizabeth Mitchell for Guest Actress. The finale was also nominated for directing and writing awards.

True Blood only got one major nomination, but it was a biggie, as it now goes against Lost in the Best Drama race.

Other personal favorites include a number of nominations for Modern Family (go Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara!), a nod for Andre Braugher (I don't watch Men of a Certain Age, I've just loved him since his days on Homicide), Jim Parsons for The Big Bang Theory, and Connie Britton and Kyle Chandler for Friday Night Lights.

In case you couldn't tell from the picture, I'm most psyched about these last two nominations. Connie and Kyle have been doing amazing work for years as Tami and Eric Taylor, and I hear the rest of this current season is no exception (I'm watching on NBC). They've got almost no shot at winning, and I know it is foolish to look to the Emmy's for validation for your favorites, but it feels so sweet when they do get recognized! Here's to Kyle and Connie for these MUCH deserved nods!

It's cool that anything I watch got any Emmy nods at all. Usually they don't. I'm sure Glee will do well, and I hope Lost gets some recognition for its final season. (I'm not counting on True Blood getting anything, just because fantasy gets even less respect that sci-fi. Supernatural deserves Emmys and certainly won't get them.)

Not a bad selection this year. My only gripes are the lack of love for Community, no nomination for John Noble, Children of Earth being snub for Best Mini-Series and the continued affection for Two and a Half Men.

HELL YES for Connie and Kyle.

Community should have taken The Office's place in all of their nominations.

Thank God Entourage is starting to be forgotten. That show has been in a slump for a while.

Why are Tony Shaloub and Two and a Half Men still recognized?

Cougar Town is my other giant snub. The pilot and title of the show are mediocre and probably turned audiences and critics away, but aside from 30 Rock, it's the most consistenly hilarious and well-written comedy on television. They really hit their stride early and the Courteney Cox should have been a lock for a nomination.
