Emmys: Fans react to nominations
Commenters in our forum are delighted about top Emmy nominations for new TV shows such as "Game of Thrones." They're furious over the snubs of "Fringe" and "Sons of Anarchy" and flabbergasted that last year's winner for drama actress, Kyra Sedgwick ("The Closer"), was booted out. Below, sample comments. See more here.
DS0816: Glad for Melissa McCarthy. She really earned it! And so did Martha Plimpton.
sweetboroguy: I actually cut off a piece of my hat and ate it this morning because I am a man of my word. "Parks" was nominated for Best Comedy and so I ate the hat.
24Emmy: I'm glad Louis C.K. made it, but poor Joel McHale.
blueprint: Brenda Strong for voice over on "Desperate Housewives"?! How cool is that?
JJA91: All 6 cast members of "Modern Family" get in!!!
MadScntst: Thrilled for Margo Martindale, Walton Goggins, and Timothy Olyphant from "Justified" and Peter Dinklage and "Game of Thrones." Disappointed that Katey Sagal is not there, and downright xxxxed that John Noble is not there.
Marvelous Mr. Maker: No Kyra Sedgwick... Can't believe this...
AM_092: Martha Plimpton! Though not enough love elsewhere for "Raising Hope"
PaulHan: The Emmys ... where you need a federal court order to evict shows like "Mad Men" and "Dexter" and Hugh Laurie + Mariska Hargitay from the lineup.
Atypical: No Neil Patrick Harris? They can't get enough of Jon Cryer I guess ... Jimmy Fallon makes the cut in variety series over Letterman. Didn't expect that.
SkyLight: Go Kate Winslet! Get that Emmy!
Hybrid87: "SYTYCD" + Cat Deeley made me very happy. Disappointed though that Emmy voters can't seem to connect with "Parenthood" because Krause, Emerson, Graham and Whitman would have all made their categories stronger.
Sasha: January Jones, you silly blonde ... Had you gone supporting, you would have been nominated and had chance at winning.
Benito Delicias: "Community" ZERO, "Cougar Town" ZERO, "Weeds" ZERO. These people don't know comedy AT ALL.
Turtle: Poor Harry Shearer. At least he was nominated once (in TWO DECADES). But his continual snub is up there with yet another baffling Katey Sagal omission: How good do they have to be?!
oscarnutlen: same old boring names over and over again.
rp557: All the "Game of Thrones" love makes my day (though I would have liked more acting nominations), Well done, ATAS.
