Completely agree with Essjaybee here in all categories. Why do they never nominate a CW show like the Vampire Diaries. Ian Somerhalder deserves a nomination. Secondly why is Tyrion, or Dany from Game of thrones nominated for the best supporting actor/actress. They are terrific.

Jim Parsons does an amazing job portraying Sheldon on BBT. The skill that would be required to so convincingly play such a socially inept character can't help but make you admire him as an actor. BEST DRAMA SERIES

Terriers was divine and it should be given some recognition. But at least most of the wonderful shows on FX (Justified, Louie, Its always Sunny,SOA, Archer) got some recognition(excluding Rescue Me and obviously Terries) Its also a shame that TV's best two shows were not on TV this year (Damages and Breaking Bad).
