FIVE FAVORITE NOMINATIONS
-Madeleine Stowe for Revenge, a wonderfully soapy performance that I predicted as one of my wild cards (though I thought she was a supporting actress).
-All three Homeland nominations, because it’s a gripping show that was snubbed at the SAG Awards, so hopefully nominations for Drama Series and stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis makes up for it.
-New Girl, because while I knew Zooey Deschanel would get in, I’m equally excited that the show was also nominated.
-Idris Elba vs. Dominic West in the Lead Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries category, because it’s insanely cool to see two stars from The Wire going head-to-head.
-Jim Rash for the screen play of The Descendants, because a writing nomination for the man who plays Dean Pelton might be the closest Community will ever come to an actual nomination.
-No Sons of Anarchy?
-No Breaking Bad for Drama Series?
-No Parks and Recreation for Comedy Series or nomination for Nick Offerman?
-With all the love for new shows and Showtime, nothing for Shameless?
