And the 2011 Emmy Award Nominees Are...

by at . Comments

Nominations for the 2011 Emmy Awards were revealed this morning, with the ceremony showing love for drama on HBO, presenter Melissa McCarthy and (yes!!!) the final season of Friday Night Lights.

We'll have plenty of reaction (seriously, no Toni Collette, Community or Sons of Anarchy?!?), analysis and opinion leading up to the Jane Lynch-hosted ceremony on September 18. First, though, a look at the nominees...

How can anyone say the TBBT is not funny? Seriously?
I hope Loretta Devine wins for best guest actress. Her small but effective role needs a lot of recognition!
Don't really care about Sons of Anarachy. Why does Hugh get nominated if he probably won't win. Patrick Dempsey should have gotten nominated!
And let's not forget how KaDee Strickland was snubbed. She was amazing!

No credibility here might as well be the MTV awards.

No Sons of Anarchy or True Blood.....again! I am disgusted. Sons is one of the best dramas on TV. The acting is superb and the story lines are great. Is is because the show is about bikers? I hope not. Open your eyes, you Emmy people!

I don't think the people that pick these nominations even watch TV. I LOVE Modern Family, but really..did they need to have 4 nominations for best actor? What happened to Weeds, Fringe, True Blood,Castle and even The Walking Dead(3 Nods for Special effects, Makeup, and I think Music). And there are a few more shows that deserve some credit. I know people get worked up about the sci-fi/horror shows, but there are some amazing actors on True Blood and The Walking Dead. I won't be watching!

What about TRUE BLOOD? I am not watching either. I love house but...

I agree where is Sons of Anarchy??? One of the best shows EVER!!! These award shows are a joke. Who picks them? I guess Sons will be another Susan Lucci.... Just so wrong...

I will never get the love for Archie Panjabi. I find her so overrated. Also, Big Bang Theory is extremely unfunny, I don`t understand its nominations.

Weeds? Californication? Mary LouiseParker? David Ducovny? Really? Sounds like it will be a boring show.

Why is there no nomination for COMMUNITY, the best comedy on TV? No nomination for Sons of anarchy?
