2003 Emmy Award Nominations

The 2003 Emmy nominations are being presented right now. I don't have access to the live presentation and am dying to know who's being picked.

If you're watching live.....please post the nominations here.

Otherwise, I'll work on finding an online listing once it's been completed.

LOS ANGELES (AP) The funeral home drama Six Feet Under received a leading 16 Emmy nominations Thursday, followed by three-time best drama winner The West Wing with 15.

The Sopranos, back in contention after missing out on last year's awards because it didn't air during the eligibility period, received 13 nominations, along with the comedies Everybody Loves Raymond and Sex and the City.

Law & Order missed out on its bid to set a record, failing to receive the best drama series nod that would have given it 12 consecutive best series nominations. It's tied for the record with Cheers and M-A-S-H. In addition to a best drama series bid, Six Feet Under also earned nominations for cast members Frances Conroy as best actress and Peter Krause as best actor.

Other contenders for best drama series are The Sopranos, The West Wing, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and 24. Nominees for best comedy series are Everybody Loves Raymond, Sex and the City, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Will & Grace and last year's winner, Friends.

Jennifer Aniston, winner of last year's best comedy series actress award, received another nomination in the category this year. Her competition includes Patricia Heaton of Everybody Loves Raymond, Jane Kaczmarek of Malcom in the Middle, Debra Messing of Will & Grace and Sarah Jessica Parker of Sex and the City.

Another member of the Friends cast, Matt LeBlanc, will be up again for the best comedy series trophy he missed out on last year. Other nominees are Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Bernie Mac of The Bernie Mac Show, Eric McCormack of Will & Grace and last year's winner, Ray Romano of Everybody Loves Raymond.

Other actresses nominated in the drama series category are Edie Falco of The Sopranos, Jennifer Garner of Alias, Marg Helgenberger of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Allison Janney of The West Wing, who took home the trophy last year.

In addition to Krause, a drama series acting bid went to last year's surprise winner, Michael Chiklis of The Shield, who received the first such honor for a basic cable show. Other nominees are James Gandolfini of The Sopranos, Martin Sheen of The West Wing and Kiefer Sutherland of 24.

No surprises. I don't watch most of the shows that earned nominations in the major categories. Just CSI, West Wing, Sopranos, and Sex & The City.

Shame on the academy for not selecting That 70s Show as a comedy series nominee. That is criminal. Friends is so very tired. Of the episodes I have seen, W&G, CYU, and ELR has never garnered a laugh from me.

At least I can say I watch more than 1 nominee in that category. I can't say that for the comedy (and I use that term loosely) series category.

Hopefully Six Feet Under will win a few awards this year. Glad to see it got 16 noms. I was really surprised to see Alias pick up several nominations, hopefully this can translate into some better ratings. Also psyched to see Bernie Mac pick up a nomination, it would be great if he walked away with the award, that man's just hilarious.

My picks (hopes)...

DRAMA
CSI
Six Feet Under
Sopranos
24
The West Wing

It's close between THE SOPRANOS and SIX FEET UNDER, but THE SOPRANOS is STILL the best drama on TV.

Lead Actress Drama Series
Frances Conroy - Six Feet Under
Edie Falco - Sopranos
Jennifer Garner - Alias
Marg Helgenberger - CSI
Allison Janney - The West Wing

If EDIE FALCO doesn't win for her INCREDIBLE work this last season, there's something REALLY wrong going on here...

Lead Actor Drama Series
James Gandolfini - Sopranos
Peter Krause - Six Feet Under
Martin Sheen - The West Wing
Kiefer Sutherland - 24
Michael Chiklis - The Shield

All great choices, except for MARTIN SHEEN (I can't stand that preachy show), but I have to go with JAMES GANDOLFINI.

Comedy Series
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Everybody Loves Raymond
Friends
Sex & The City
Will & Grace

CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM. Hands down the funniest show on TV.

Lead Actor Comedy Series
Larry David - Curb Your Enthusiam
Matt Leblanc - Friends
Bernie Mac - Bernie Mac Show
Eric McCormack - Will & Grace
Ray Romano - Everybody Loves Raymond
Tony Shalhobe - Monk

LARRY DAVID. (See above...)

Lead Actress Comedy
Jennifer Aniston - Friends
Patricia Heaton - Eveybody Loves Raymond
Debra Messing - Will & Grace
Sarah Jessica Parker - Sex & The City
Jane Kaczmarek - Malcolm in the Middle

Considering I only watch two of the shows these people are up from, I'd go with JANE KACZMAREK.

Reality Competition Program
The Amazing Race
American Idol
Survivor

The last episode of SURVIVOR stunk! THE AMAZING RACE has emerged as one of the most exciting and fun shows on. There you go...

Miniseries
Hitler The Rise Of Evil
Napoleon
Taken

Well, I only saw TAKEN. I enjoyed it.

Made For TV Movie
Door To Door
Homeless To Harvard
Live From Baghdad
My House In Umbria
Normal

Again, LIVE FROM BAGHDAD was the only one I saw, so I'm probably not qualified...

That 70's Show and Scrubs are the best comedies on tv right now, and it seems like they get no respect.

I don't watch most of these shows either - Friends is the only one I watch consistently; CSI sporadically and The Sopranos once it comes out on DVD. I understand these shows are critical/fan darlings, but they need to find some new blood - there are several other excellent shows out there in tv land. They might as well just show last year's ceremony again.

why is it that Jane Kaczmarek gets all the props for Malcom in the Middle when Brian Cranston is infinately better as Malcom's dad.

Also, same goes for Marg Helgenberger. I like her on CSI, but William Peterson does a much better job.

Agreed. Pardon the pun, but this category is a joke. But never had a laugh from Curb Your Enthusiasm? Good God, man - what is wrong with you?

The academy's fascination with mainstream popular shows like CSI and 24 instead of higher quality like The Shield or The Wire is pretty frustrating. I'm glad to see some great shows on the list, but their nominations just seem to be default selections with no real effort made on finding the best of the best.

The Futon Critic has posted the creative arts nominations as well. They're way too long to post here, but check the link.

Two items that struck me:

Outstanding Main Title Theme Music
Boomtown
Everwood
Miracles
Monk
No trace of the original Monk theme that was nominated is to be found on the show anymore.



And, the five Special Effects nominees: Buffy ("Chosen"), Enterprise ("Dead Stop"), Enterprise ("The Crossing"), Enterprise ("The Expanse"), and Firefly ("Serenity").

UPN has four of the five. I'll bet Fox wins.

Almost as bad as the nonsense that was their comedy nominations is the omission of Boomtown from the best drama list and Neal McDonough from the best supporting actor list.

I still don't get the fascination with Six Feet Under. I watched the whole first season and thought is was okay, but the academy treats like the greatest thing that ever happened to television. Unless it has really improved since then, I can only .

Well, take my opinions for what they're worth, but it's either the best or the second best show on all of television IMO, and I'm certainly not one to simply go along with the Academy. Last season, I didn't see anything better, and I watched quite a bit.

You know it's a "slim-pickings" type of year when Hitler gets nominated.

I didn't think Hiter: Rise of Evil was bad. I don't think it was great either. Miniseries are pretty much going the way of the dodo - there is little profit potential in them.

I can't believe Boomtown got shutout of the nominations. I for one can't wait for the DVD release of the first season. Are you listening NBC??? They should follow the example set by 24 and The Shield if they want to build up the ratings for this show. Circuit City has a High Def promo for Boomtown that is just incredible in the picture and sound quality.

The thing about Six Feet Under is that I don't really enjoy it all that much as I am in the process of watching the episodes, but it's upon reflection of each episode that it becomes more entertaining and thought provoking. But I don't consider it the creme de la creme, but it'd make my top 10 shows currently on TV, I guess.

Like, I really enjoy most of "Curb Your Enthusiam" while I'm watching it, and some of the bits are fun to run back through my head as well.
