I think it's pretty nice that Lost got nominated for its final year. I can really see four shows winning for Drama, although Dexter really did have a standout season last season. I think Curb has a good chance of winning this season as well with the whole Seinfeld reunion, although I could see Glee coming in and winning it.

As far as acting goes, I'm pretty sure it's going to be a race between the three usual contenders, Bryan Cranston, Michael C. Hall and John Hamm who were all great this season, with a possible chance for Matthew Fox to get in there. For actress I think it's Glenn Close's this time. Her character went through a lot of stuff this last season and she was great.

In the comedy categories it'll probably be Baldwin again, although I'd personally love to see either Parsons, Morrison or L.D. win it. I think it's awesome that Amy Poehler got a nomination. I think Lea Michelle has a good chance of winning this one though.

Supporting actor in a drama, once again, seems to be the most crowded category, just filled with outstanding performances, although some notable actors are missing, especially John Lithgow from Dexter, who honestly should have this category won. Also, John Noble from Fringe gets snubbed again. That being said, I'd love to see Aaron Paul finally get a win for Breaking Bad, although I think his best season was season 2, so I think it's going to be either Emerson or Quinn for their final performances from Lost. For supporting actress I'm quite surprised with Christina Hendricks getting a nomination, and I'm really not sure who will win this one. I thought Rose Byrne was pretty great this last season.

Supporting actor in a comedy is pretty interesting. I could easily see this going to Chris Colfer just for the couple of episodes that have been heavily focused on him in Glee, as far as the dramatic episodes go, but this is comedy and he is one of the funnier characters on the show. I think Jane Lynch has this one in the bag.

And finally, how great would it be for Conan to win the Emmy for his 7-month run as the Tonight Show Host in a category where there are no other network shows (Leno, Fallon, Letterman, etc.) and with the show on NBC that would be even better.

The list is a joke for 3 reasons

- That Glee got nominated for anything let alone 19 time

- No nominations for Community

And most importantly

No nomination for Ron Offerman aka Ron Fucking Swanson!
Yet another movie website -

Doctor Who?
