    Go ‘head, admit it. You have secret hates or just grudges against shows you think are grossly overrated.

     

    Me, I think “Community” is garbage. Sorry, but I  don’t get that show — just a bunch of lugheads acting as obnoxious as possible — and so successfully that I turn it off after 5 minutes. Can’t bear it. I’ve tried it several times and never have I observed any genuine wit or cleverness. So, bottom line, I hope they get snubbed in every Emmy category.

     

    Now, your turn to bitch ….

    “Glee” — I think Ryan Murphy is a hack and am not sure why he continues to get work as a writer, director or producer. (Have you seen “Eat Pray Love”? Blech!) Sentimental drivel awkwardly spliced to mean-spirited comedy, with an acceptance-and-equality message tacked on. Some great talent in the cast, but they deserve better. It would be fair if the show received a couple of acting nods but absolutely nothing else.

    Kathryn Joosten doesn’t like my website, so I won’t miss her when her name isn’t called.

     

    Andre Braugher, Sofia Vergara and Jim Parsons are actors whose appeal is totally lost on me.  I guess I must only have regard for talented performers.

    I think Andre Braugher is one of TV’s best actors and think a nod for him would be deserved, though he really belongs in the lead race. I love Vergara too.

     

    But while I’ve got nothing against Jim Parsons, per se, “The Big Bang Theory” doesn’t seem to me to be much more than a weekly 30-minute nerd joke. I watched one episode when it was getting big buzz: “The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis,” which people at the time were calling not only a great episode but one of the best of all time. It was pleasant enough, but I don’t think I even chuckled once. Decent, but unspectacular.

    I’m hoping, probably to no avail, that Justin Timberlake doesn’t get in for hosting SNL.  His episode was fantastic, but the main difference wasn’t that he’s so much more amazing than the other hosts but that the writers were much more on their game than usual and the cast really stepped up and delivered.  I don’t dislike the guy, but I’m resentful of his status where that show is concerned. 

     

    I would second Kathryn Joosten if she were still in the guest star category — seriously, how many years can someone who’s basically a series regular get an Emmy nom as a guest? — but since she’s now in supporting, I’ll leave it alone.

     

    And January Jones.  I haven’t seen much of Mad Men, but she’s been terrible in everything else I’ve seen of her.  I can’t believe she’s much better on that show.

    Two and a Half Men’s supporting players (Jon Cryer, Holland Taylor, Conchata Ferrell) take away worthy nominations from other deserving actors and actresses. If they’re snubbed, I’ll be happy.

    Stop cracking me up rburton! LOL.

     

    Anyway, I agree Kathryn Joosten doesn’t deserve to be nominated. Same goes for Dexter the show. I’m also not rooting for Glee (or any of its actors), Edie Falco, Chris Noth, Christina Hendricks, and Mariska Hargitay.

    Dexter-I watched the Pilot a few years back and could never get into it (I thought Dexter was too much of a bad person to watch a series about him).  Apparently, it had a bad year this year so now is the time for its slot to go to one of the new shows (Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead) or critically acclaimed shows (Justified or Friday Night Lights).

     

    True Blood-The third season was horrible and its nomination would probably be at the expense of Game of Thrones (which is IMO HBO’s best series).

     

    January Jones-I second EmmyLoser’s thoughts on her

     

    Sharon Gless-It was great to see Burn Notice get a major nomination but it was based only on her name and not her performance.  Burn Notice is also well past its prime at this point.

     

    Michael Shannon-I don’t get what about his performance everybody finds so great.  He would also be getting the nomination over much more deserving people in his own show (Michael Stuhlbarg and Stephen Graham)

     

    Glee-It was very deserving its first season but I stopped watching about a third of the way through this season because it was so bad.

     

    Matthew Morrison-He is easily one of the worst actors on television.  How he is even in the running for a nomination completely stuns me.

    Jeez alot of yous’ are gobshites. Community, Dexter, Michael Shannon and January Jones are class.

    I hope Glee goes all Desperate Housewives, I hate Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men and I don’t love The Good Wife.

    The only morality in a cruel world is chance.

    Nurse Jackie for Comedy Series – for me its just not anywhere near as funny enough to be nominated.

    Edie Falco – She is great. BUT…her goldderby interview where she didn’t know about the emmy voting/tape process just made it seem to me that if she doesn’t get nominated, she wouldn’t really mind. When you compare that to comedy actresses like Courtney Cox, Eva Longoria and Martha Pimpton who are equally good but it would just mean so much more to them

     

    Glee for comedy series – far too inconsistent this year

     

    And finally, out of the four super talented Modern Family actors (Burrell, Stonestreet, Ferguson and O’Neil) I want only Burrell and any two of the other three to get nominated. I don’t want all four in the category taking up slots from other equally deserving actors from different shows…spread the love etc.

    The Killing for anything. Michelle Forbes was pretty one note throughout the season, and, surprisingly, the writing isn’t all to blame. Mireille Enos was great in “Missing”, but that was pretty much it. And Veena Sud… I fear for her. If she gets nominated for writing and/or producing, her head will get so big it’ll explode.

    I have a list, but I will narrow it down to 4.

     

    Tina Fey (SNL), Mariska Hargitay, Matthew Morrison, and Veena Sud.

     

    Tina’s last stint on SNL was a fail. I place blame all around. She had an amazing season on “30 Rock”, so she should be honored for that than the automatic SNL thing b/c she’s Tina Fey. The lead actress drama category is so stacked, that it will be a shame if Mariska were back AGAIN. Matthew Morrison shouldn’t be nominated and I fault the writers for that. Veena Sud’s “Shit Don’t Stink” press tour left a bad taste in my mouth. It would’ve been one thing if the show was more than great technicals, but the delusional arrogance not backed up by the work would just make a nomination just the worst.

    Mariska Hargitay- she’s cute and all, but she already has an Emmy, and she’ll rob Connie Britton and Peg Bundy

    Kathy Bates- I don’t get Harry’s Law at all, and why people would like it

    January Jones- it’s like going to the craps table, and playing “Winner Takes All”, she should have submitted Supporting and called it a day

    and

    “Two and a Half Men”- in EVERY SINGLE CATEGORY, except for Comedy Series (oh, wait) and Lead Actor (oh, wait)

    Glee for anything (especially series and supporting comedy actor), Showtime people for Comedy Actress (yeah right), Late Show and Tonight Show for Variety series.
