    ABC was the most nominated broadcast network with 16 nominations, followed closely by NBC with 12. AMC and FX led nominations for cable networks, with nine each. Modern Family was the most nominated series with six.

    The Most Exciting New Series will probably be The Walking Dead, since it has that one-of-a-kind feel to it. But first, I guess I’ll see if it even gets nominated.

    I am very happy with these nominations.  Fringe and Justified being some of the nomination leaders is awesome (and the two best performances of the year in Margo Martindale and John Noble).  I am kind of surprised Peter Dinklage didn’t get nominated but that is my one minor complaint.

     

    At first I thought that these awards were a joke attempt at rivaling the Emmys but after these nominations this set of awards could very well work as what it was intended to be (a precursor to the Emmys).

     

    Spenser, I am not 100% positive but I think the Most Exciting New Series category is for shows that are debuting next year, which is kind of stupid because the voters would be voting only on the pilot episode of each series (assuming the voters got the pilots of the new series).

    I second the love for Busy Phillips!  I am, however, surprised and disappointed at Laura Linney’s exclusion.  I’m afraid that because she is so consistently excellent in the performances she gives (onstage as well as onscreen) that people are too willing to overlook just how wonderful she was in The Big C.  It’s as if everyone knew she would nail the role before anyone even saw it, and then when she did no one was surprised and therefore felt no pressing need to give her any accolades.  I’m sure she’ll still make the cut at the Emmys (they love them some movie stars/Oscar nominees), but it’s starting to look like she’s farther back in the pack than I would have thought.

    Linney has certainly surprised everyone before.

     

    I’m happy to see some of these noms but disappointed that there’s no acting mentions for Game of Thrones.

    I love all the “The Middle” love. Except really? Can they only nominate 5 ModFam actors, IMO I think Jesse Tyler was a standout.

    The hard thing about Modern Family is that it’s truly an ensemble and they’re a very talented bunch, making it somewhat tough to find the standouts.  To me, Julie Bowen is the brightest star in the bunch.  It can sometimes feel criminal for one actor to get in when another on the show doesn’t, but it’s also criminal to include so much of the cast from one show when there are still a good number of talented and deserving performers on other shows who deserve recognition.

    Ryan, if you’re right, I do think that is a bit ridiculous, considering how many good pilots turn into terrible (or cancelled) series.

     

    When Modern Family first premiered, I prayed that we’d get some Emmy love for at least two of the performers. And then they got five nominations in acting alone. Let’s not be too picky. They’re a great bunch of comedic actors, and they each deserve recognition, but I would hate for the amazing fact that five out of the main six were nominated to be over-shadowed by the sixth performer’s omission. JTF was Emmy nominated last year; if he isn’t this year in favor of breaking Ed O’Neill’s Emmy curse, you won’t hear a bit of complaining from me.

    The presence of one of the “Real Housewives” shows for Reality Program but neither “Dirty Jobs” nor “MythBusters” is very sad. Those exploitation shows may be guilty pleasures for some, but they don’t belong on a ballot honoring excellence.

    ^ TRUE. I’d rather have the very contrived but very much a guilty pleasure Fact or Faked as compared to the Housewives series.

     

    But not much complains from me, this is a very good set of nominations. Bet the Emmys won’t come up with somethign as good as this.

    Winners

     

    DRAMA SERIES: Mad Men

    COMEDY SERIES: Modern Family

    TALK SHOW: The Daily Show

    REALITY-COMPETITION SERIES: American Idol

    REALITY SERIES: Hoarders & The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

    DRAMA LEAD ACTOR: Jon Hamm, Mad Men

    COMEDY LEAD ACTOR: Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory

    DRAMA LEAD ACTRESS: Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife

    COMEDY LEAD ACTRESS: Tina Fey, 30 Rock

    DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTOR: John Noble, Fringe

    COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTOR: Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother

    DRAMA SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Christina Hendricks, Mad Men & Margo Martindale, Justified

    COMEDY SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Busy Phillips, Cougar Town

    REALITY HOST: Mike Rowe, Dirty Jobs

     

    After the great set of nominees, these winners are a bit disappointing.  I am happy that Martindale and Noble got their wins but the Fey, NPH, Parsons and Mad Men love was a little undeserving.

    Well you really can’t have them all. After a very impressive set of nominees, these are too good to be true, thus the so-so list of winners. While I love the wins of Modern Family, John Noble, Margo Martindale, Jon Hamm, Mike Rowe, and Busy Philipps, I don’t think that the others are justified much. I don’t have problems though with the likes of Neil Patrick Harris as he hasn’t won anything among the televised awards show we have. But AI, Real Housewives, and The Daily Show are meh level.

    I do find the Parsons, Fey, and Daily Show wins disappointing in that it kind of appears as if the voters are almost playing “catch-up” and being sure to honor past Emmy champs before they completely fall out of awards favor.  30 Rock‘s moment at the top of the tv comedy heap has passed, but this way the organization could still be sure to honor Fey for what she achieved before the awards ever existed.

     

    I’m glad Busy Phillips won, if only because she is unlikely to ever land an Emmy nomination or any awards consideration elsewhere, so it’s nice that she’ll at least always have some official recognition for her work on this underrated, underwatched show.  On the other hand, I hope Margo Martindale’s win here can give her that last little boost she needs to get an Emmy nomination.  There is a ton of buzz surrounding her and her show, but Justified is sort of an unknown property with the Emmys — I’m not sure how many of the voters are watching and paying attention enough to give both Martindale and Olyphant the support needed to land nominations.
