There's some level of suck in that list. And some just plain misguided stuff.
I mean I LOVE Boston Legal, but it is NOT viable as a "best drama" candidate. I mean on what planet is that show more "drama" than Ugly Betty?
ANYTHING having to do with the last season of "24" (and sadly that includes Kiefer Sutherland) should not be nominated.
Mariska Hargitay's perpetual nominations annoy the crap out of me. She's not bad, but she's not doing award winning material. Actually, very few ladies on that list are. I love Kyra Sedgwick, for example, and the show she's on, but its not powerful stuff--its a fun, fluffy show.
Supporting Actor, Drama Series list is a REAL mess. Oy! Even Masi Oka is questionable, again despite how much I love him. When a guy like Jack Coleman is doing TEN times the job on the same show? Come. On. You know the whole process is crap when someone turns in a season like Coleman did and gets NOTHING.
The Grey's Anatomification of a lot of the nominations bugs too. The show was CRAP this past year. Manipulative, badly written crap. I don't want to see that rewarded. Sandra Oh is the only one nominated where I can stand the thought. Except that for "Supporting Actress, Drama Series" Rachel Griffiths may be an even better choice.
