    • This is why I can’t watch awards shows! There were 4 more deserving actors in that category!!!!

      • It looks like once an awards committee gets fixated on one person (or show); it takes a thunderbolt to get them looking elsewhere.

  • I like that Dexter’s ensemble is up against Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire and The Good Wife. One of these things is not like that others.

  • Any awards ceremony that doesn’t recognize Amy Poehler and the cast of Parks and Rec is a joke. It’s also a shame to see Steve Carell snubbed yet again.

    • COULD NOT AGREE MORE!!! Both Parks and Rec and, worse yet, Steve Carell getting the shaft. Him not winning is a serious WTF situation.

    • Could not agree more with “shell”!!! Parks and Rec was screwed over and, worse yet, Steve Carell getting the shaft–again. Him not winning is a serious WTF situation.

    • But that would mean everyone’s darling Betty White wouldn’t get an award, nevermind how much funnier Amy Poehler is, any chance to shove Betty White down our collective throats must be taken. Cloris Leachman is hilarious as Mawmaw on Rasing Hope, but no, we must give all our love to Sue Ann and Phyllis can’t have any.

    • “I think awards are stupid…But they’d be less stupid if they went to the right people.”

      I’ve never understood the mass appeal of Betty White. Is it because she’s old? Cloris Leachman is only five years younger than her and vastly funnier. Cloris is like the grandma I wish I had!

      Parks & Rec’s continued snubbing is bordering on ridiculous. The third season of P&R was so close to a perfect season it was obscene. This season is almost as good (too soon to judge as a whole). Why is this show continually ignored?

      Modern Family is becoming stale fast. Every week seems to be exactly the same. I’m not saying it’s not funny but it’s not as funny as it was in the first season. The quality of the writing has really gone down this season and the back half of last season.

    • I wouldn’t say Modern Family sucks, but I agree there are funnier shows than it.

  • Travesty #1: Justified had no nominations.
    Travesty #2: Downton Abbey did not win.

    Conclusion: This award show means nothing.

  • All will be right with the world once Mad Men kicks off in a few weeks ;)

  • What’s that supposed to mean..

    Comment by Chris – January 29, 2012 07:03 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’ve never seen Justified, but to think anyone can top Maggie Smith in Downton…is simple crap. Therefore, I agree wholeheartedly with your conclusion.

  • No nominations for Community (specially Danny Pudi) or Cougar Town, no win for Steve Carell, 6 times Alec Baldwin, and the most unfunny of Modern Family’s characters nominated: THIS AWARD SUCKED!!!

  • Really hard to put any stock in this…NCIS has longevity and an ever-increasing trend line for ratIngs and popularity over the life span, as well as one of the more respected actors professionally and, from why I’ve read, personally…no mention for either

  • SAG tv awards are always bad and this year is no different.

  • This was Kyle Chandler’s last chance for a win for his Friday Night Lights work. Sad, but not suprised, he didn’t win. Thankful he’s got that Emmy!

  • Could not have had more predictable and boring winners if the organization literally tried.
