All I know is that if Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton don't get nominated for FNL, something is seriously wrong. They're the winners IMO.

Vanessa Williams and Becki Newton better be nominated for comedy supporting roles in Ugly Betty.

Teri Hatcher? Ugh! I want to slap the shit out of her every time she is on screen. Probably the most annoying character on TV right now.

I had read that supporting actors submit two shows to be considered from.

Another rule change they've made this year. It's just one episode, edited down to all their scenes.

As far as I know, nope.

Makes me sad that Battlestar Galactica's great, great troupe of actors don't ever get mention for the bigger awards. I guess because it's the TV equivalent of off off off Broadway. If there's any actor that did a better job this past season than Michael Hogan as Colonel Saul Tigh, I haven't seen him. An astonishing, unhinged performance much of the time.

That's fucking ridiculous. How can you judge the merits of an actor without the context of the plot?

I've thought the Emmys were a joke for a long time. Now I don't think I can come up with a adjective to describe them after hearing this.

How come David Caruso isn't on the list? Just kidding. I wouldn't be surprised if he won, if he was nominated. No one can stand there for 10 minutes & take off his sunglasses like him.

Why isn't Chris Noth (Law & Order: CI) on the nominations list? No Joke, he's a pretty good actor.

Updated OP with new names in pretty much every catergory, bar Drama Actor. Shitload of Grey's additions and a few Office and Entourage ones, too. "Boobies" Sedgwick should come as no surprise in Lead Actress and Sopranos fans get to see Christopher up in the running.

Absolutely (almost). Especially Chandler. I don't see how anyone but Chandler or Hugh Laurie could win.

Thats what I say!

Scrubs never gets any love.

It's sad to see the show that started the whole NBC 'Single Camera' comedy is now the least watched & respected of the 4. It's still #1 in my books but sadly not many others.
The Office is the most popular of the 4 ( ) followed by Earl ( ) then the up & coming 30 Rock ( ) & Scrubs is usually around the same level as 30 Rock rite now & this coming PTTV season, 30 Rock will probally become more popular then Scrubs & possibly My Name is Earl.

Agreed, those are my two favorites.

Who, Gervias? Has the rumored British invasion of Office characters in the American one already happened?

No Carrell during the business school episode when Michael made it to the show right after Pam began taking down her drawings.

Edited OP: Added the last four names (Chandler, Dempsey, Fox, Spader) to round out the Lead Actor Drama list, in what will probably be the last update before the nominations are officially announced in a few days time.

Gervais in that "Sir Ian" sketch was one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

I think Minnie Driver should win for "Best actress in a drama series", I finally got around to watching all of the episodes & talk about a great drama. Same for Eddie Izzard as "Lead actor in a drama".

Updated OP, to round out the Supporting Actress (Drama) list. Let me be the first to say -- where the fuck is Elizabeth Mitchell? The only thing I can see explaining that snub is if she pulled out of the supporting catergory in the last minute to submit in Lead. Which she could make a valid case for, she was probably more of a predominant female character this season than Evangeline Lilly.

EDIT: Also Updated Supp. Actor (Drama) and Lead and Supporting Actress (Comedy) lists.
