Nothing for Revenge or Homeland?!! I'm sorry but that proves its all about who you know. GLEE? !! Big Bang is a great show but this season has been bloody awful. This is bullsh*t

Joyeful

Seriously? Jon Cryer? What hold does he have on the Hollywood folk? And having watched both The Big Bang Theory AND Community this year, there's no way TBBT deserved that above Community. Community was way funnier, AND made much better use of their ensemble cast. I just don't understand it.

I freeked out at first when there were no nominations for Mad Men, and then I realized it hasn't aired any new episodes since the last SAG awards, so its not eligable.

Is this crazy? Not even a nomination for Homeland. I like suits but would never have expected patrick adams to get a nomination for best actor.
