    How could Parks and Rec – especially Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman – not get nominated??? What about Community. You would think actors would actually nominate quality shows.

  2. Matt says:

    Jessica Lange better win for AHS. She brings me to tears in every episode!

  3. Amber says:

    Glee gets nominated, but Community doesn’t????? SAG awards, you are dead to me. It is also a ridiculous thing to snub Treme. Steve Zahn and Khandi Alexander deserved nominations.

  4. Sharon says:

    COMMUNITY?!?!?!?!?!? Come on! You can’t go funnier and the cast’s amazing!

  5. Kelli says:

    Does a Son gotta get cancer to get some acknowledgement; SOA is one of the best underrated and unrecognized shows on TV

  6. Grace says:

    WHERE THE FRACK IS HUGH LAURIE??????????????

  7. isabelle says:

    O..FRICKEN MG!!! how has no one mentioned THE CLOSER or KYRA SEDGWICK!!!!????!!!!! she is AMAZING!!!!! so is the show! stop being idiots and mucking around and focus on her and her show!

  8. Aiswarya says:

    Glee? Stop. Are you kidding me? It’s not even funny anymore, it’s stupid.
    No Fringe love, why?

  9. Lisa says:

    Will not be watching any of these stupid award shows since Sons of Anarchy is not nominated, total BS all the other shows are not worth watching!

  10. Matt says:

    I totally agree!

  11. Ann says:

    Same old s*** as always. Some of the most brilliant shows once again overlooked. Do these people even bother to watch these shows before they nominate them. Because there is no way anyone could watch Sons of Anarchy and not agree that the writing and acting are outstanding! No wonder Kurt Sutter constantly sounds off about award shows. If I worked my ass off to produce a quality show and never got recognized I’d be pissed too.
