Emmy Nominees!

These are the Emmy nominees for the major categories. The winners will be announced on September 20th. Personally I have to say I'm so stoked to see that Jim Parsons was nominated in Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for 'The Big Bang Theory'. That show is absolutely brilliant, as is Parsons. Great to see South Park back in the animated category for 'Margaritaville'. That was a very smart episode. I'm also shocked to see that Family Guy managed to get themselves in the Comedy Series category! Good for them! (although I'll admit I find South Park way funnier..) Only gripe, where is 'Rescue Me'? That show should've been nominated for it's acting and it's writing. Denis Leary is one of the best guys on TV, and 'Rescue Me' continues to be one of the most interesting shows. It's a shame.
