BREAKING NEWS: Emmy Noms Announced

I know what you're thinking, "But PTR, you don't cover the Emmys.  You have a long-standing boycott of these predictable TV awards."  And while you are absolutely correct, I am officially ending the boycott this year.  Why, you ask?  Because the reason for the boycott has been broken.  Long-time readers will remember that I stopped covering the awards because of their continued egregious snub of Friday Night Lights.  And while the show still didn't get a best drama nod, its two stars Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton finally got best actor/actress nominations!!  I know, I couldn't believe it either.  In fact, I re-read the story just to be sure.  Overall, Glee received the most nominations with 19 followed by Mad Men with 17.  HBO led the pack with 101 total nods.  New series The Good Wife and Modern Men also received nominations.  To see the complete list of the main nominees, keep reading after the jump.

Of course the Emmy people love to snub the undderated shows. They really have not a single concept about the fact that there areplenty of underrated shows that have talented Actors/Actresses

They really need to start giving these folks some credit, enough with the popular shows.

Plus couldn't they for once nominate Kathryn Morris, What is their problem. The girl has plenty of talent and has shown that through the whole seven seasons of Cold Case.

I'm very disappointed with these emmy people. This needs to change. I'm sure that Kathryn herself probably gets upset about never recieving an emmy for all her hard work.

If you want to watch great shows like Glee for less money then switch to DISH Network! As a customer and employee of DISH I can’t say how happy I’ve been since I made the switch.
