@Dan Forcella : I guess that proves that this category doesn't belong in there...

NOTHING for Once Upon a Time? I didn't expect best drama, but at least Robert Carlyle and Lana Parilla. Funny how they nominate Giancarlo Esposito for Breaking Bad, but they would NEVER nominate him for Once, even though he's still the same talented actor... it just shows that appart for comedies critics don't like network shows. Nothing for Grey's (except for Loretta Devine)?

No "once upon a time"? Lana parilla and Robert Carlisle own that show and neither one was nominated. What a rip.
I'm rooting for Peter dinklage and big bang theory cause those are the only shows I watch that got nominated.

Why is John Noble nominated? For his Overacting in the first half of seaosn 4?
For his overacting in much of the last part? For getting aal the writing, the storylines, the backstories, the attentionseeking scenes, the gadgets, the oneliners, the tearjerker scenes? He only did broken and poor Walter when he got the lines, same with his socalled double acting,
The rest was Noble playing his favourite Walter Noble. Noble is Supporting actor, which means support the lead, in his case it means everything and evryone has to support Noble. I am sick and tired of Nobles PoorWalter routine and his look at me acting.
Totally Overrated.
