    And not one single nomination for Leverage, the only show I watch religiously. This is why I say fuck the Emmys.

    Kinda surprised they didn't acknowledge Hugh Laurie or House, since it is over with now.

    Very happy that "Sherlock" got 13 nominations, especially Martin Freeman as John Watson.

    Some of these nominations...they must have a "buy your nomination" option the same way you can buy your star on the walk of fame.

    Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series
    "The Colbert Report"
    "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"
    "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
    "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"
    "Real Time with Bill Maher"
    "Saturday Night Live"
    The fact that SNL was nominated as outstanding comedy is even funnier than the show has been in years.

    i am thrilled that she was nominated. The little time she was on screen she flat out nailed it. and as much as the character of Meghan was on screen, i'm surprised that she didn't get a nomination. i'm glad she didn't otherwise she'll continue to be shoved down our throats for the remainder of the series.

    Jon Hamm better win and I really hope Christina Hendricks wins. But you know me - I want Mad Me to win every award they are nominated for.

    Shouldn't there be some kind of limit to how many noms one series gets in a category? I mean 4 out of 6 nominations for Modern Family actors seems a bit excessive. The show is great but you may as well give it it's own category if you're going to do that.

    I hope Jessica Lange takes what she was nominated for - she was fabulous in AHS.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I'm surprised Hugh Laurie wasn't nominated. It was his last year to be eligible and people thought he was going to win. Not like the show wasn't crap the last couple of years, but it's a shame that he never won an Emmy for House, because he was brilliant.

    Off Their Rockers is kinda funny, it's like a hidden camera show where senior citizens do/say funny stuff to unsuspecting younger people. Betty White hosts it.

    Downton Abbey is some show on PBS and only know because of channel surfing.
