Dexter, House and The Office.December 19, 2011 at 7:19 pm #235144
Yeah, I think The Office is likely done, House might squeak out a nod for Hugh Laurie, but that’s about it. Dexter, I think might stick in for awhile longer.
I also think we’ll see 30 Rock’s nomination totals decline this season. Tina Fey will likely still get in and Alec Baldwin, but I think it’s out of the series race and the supporting players won’t get in anymore.December 19, 2011 at 7:20 pm #235145This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 19, 2011 at 7:31 pm #235146
Dexter is out. Even the biggest hardcore fans of the show admit this season was awful. And after all the bad press and negative reception from the public for that finale, it’s done. Even for Michael C. Hall, as there are many high profile actors in big projects this year.
Also, the little I saw was worst than season 6 of 24 and season 2 of Desperate Housewives. When something is THAT awful, I don’t think it matters how many times it has been nominated in the past, it’s not coming back.
Glee might also finally get snubbed.December 19, 2011 at 7:54 pm #235147
30 Rock will never be out of the series race until it is out of the airwaves. I’d like to say the same about Jane Krakowski, but I know that’s not true. I still have her in my predix though.
I think it depends on how much longer the show continues to run after Baldwin’s exit this season.December 19, 2011 at 8:05 pm #235148
^ But since he’s still in this season and the show still gets a lot of nominations and is not going through a backlash, it’s a bit early to say “30 Rock” could be snubbed. In fact, so far, season unaired, it might be one of the only locks of the Comedy Series category.December 20, 2011 at 4:01 am #235149
I don’t think Dexter is completely out, It will get a nod for Mos Def, Maybe one for Hall and writing for the episode Just Let It Go.December 20, 2011 at 5:11 am #235150This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 20, 2011 at 9:04 am #235151
When you say “done,” I think of shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Entourage and Weeds, which still receive a few Creative Arts nominations but have little to no chance of making it in the major categories.
Denis, Dexter has never received a writing nomination (at the Emmys, anyway) and I doubt it will happen this season.December 20, 2011 at 9:18 am #235152
Dexter is deader than dead; the terrible season would have done it in already but Homeland overshadowing it in buzz was the last nail in the coffin. I’d love to declare The Office dead, but I feel like it’ll never die.December 20, 2011 at 9:36 am #235153

Which is strange, because the Emmys have never fully embraced it. Despite its Outstanding Comedy Series win in 2006, the Academy has basically treated it like Curb Your Enthusiasm, their other perennial nominee. Compare their Emmy reception to 30 Rock, Arrested Development and Modern Family…December 20, 2011 at 9:52 am #235154
Dexter is definately out. Michael C Hall probably wont see another nomination till the series finaleDecember 20, 2011 at 9:52 am #235155This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.December 20, 2011 at 9:54 am #235156
Wait, you think Dexter can get a writing nomination for THIS season? I’m sorry, but I don’t see it. No way the writers branch would ever nominate it with so many great pilots and “Mad Men” coming back. The main reason for the backlash this season is the writing.
