I'm glad Lea Michele was nominated for best actress as maybe it will convince the producer that she is the star of the show and not there only to be abused by the supporting cast!


Chris Colfer MUST win!


I'm actually really shocked that Kadee didn't get a nomination. Private Practice and her deserve some serious recognition for the last few episodes that they've had! I mean really, have there been better rape portrayals on TV? For the work that they've done, they should really get recognized.


The Awards always snobs Private Practice :(


Very happy for Katey Sagal, she deserves it!


Happy for Lea Michele, she is wonderful playing Rachel Berry. Even though I love Glee, I really have doubts about Chris Colfer nomination, the character he's playing is good but I don't think that it's the actor who makes it that good.
Also the nominations are snubbing Private Practice (seriously guys, Kadee Strickland deserves a nomination), Cougar Town (this show is crazily funny) and Parenthood (Lauren Graham and Mae Whitmanare just amazing on this). Moreover there's not a lot of new shows in the list (mainly because this year was not a brilliant one for newcommers)


Yes I agree! Kadee should have been nominated! They are really snubbing GA N PP! Even Sandra deserves an award for her portrayal of a dr with PTSD! I like some of the nominations but other people have been nominated and won so many times, they need to give other people a chance. Frankly I don't think Chris Colfer should win cuz his character just thinks he is entitled. It irritates me about Glee. He isn't the best.
Jim Parsons has to win for TBBT NOT Alec Baldwin or Steve Carrel. No one can beat Jim!!!
Juliana Marguiles is a great actress, loved her on ER and Good Wife.
That's my thoughts anyways.


I'm disappointed that Private Practice's Kadee Strickland didn't get nominated for her portrayal as a rape victim. I think she's more than worthy of such an award. Although, I'm rooting for Chris Colfer to win in his category!
