  • The emmys again, didn`t we vote allready for our dream-nomination? I say Hugh Laurie and Robert Sean Leonard, Robert Carlyle,John Noble, Jennifer Morrison, Anna Torv. The depressing thing is none of them will get nominated. :(((

    I hope that at least Community gets some love!

  • Maura Tierney for her arc on ‘Rescue Me’ She already should have gotten an Emmy for several performances on ER.

  • Ooh, also, for the variety/music program category, it’d be really nice to see Craig Ferguson get some recognition finally.

  • Ellen Pompeo has been underrated since the start of Grey’s and I honestly think she deserves a nod. I don’t even need to see her win, but a nod is something she deserves. I don’t like how each year the same actresses/actors are getting nominated while so many other talents are being overlooked ( John Noble / Lauren Graham as a few other examples ). But if I had to choose one it would be Ellen Pompeo. I adore her work and I think she should be rewarded for it.

    Desperate Housewives had better times but it had so much influence for network TV that I think they should get a nod aswell ; for best comedy. But that’s just me.

    Other names I am thrilled about are Archie Panjabi ( TGW ), Julianne Marguilles ( TGW ), but these 2 have a high chance of being nominated so that’s good. Another favorite is Kyra Sedgwick for The Closer and Anna Paquin for True Blood.

  • I desperately want Megan Hilty and Nick Offerman to be recognized.

  • If I could only choose one dream nod it’d be, hands down, without a doubt, Community for Best Comedy.
    I have a million dream nods, but Community is #1.

  • If I had to choose one I would do Ellen Pompeo because she was herat with the adoption this season and it is just horrible that she has never been nominated, if not her then Courtney Cox cause how the hell did she never get nominated for friends and right now for Cougar Town which is so amazing and funny, others are Sandra Oh, Lana Parrilla, Cat Deeley, Robert Carlyle, Revenge, and A few more

  • Maura Tierney truly deserve an Emmy. It is beyond me that she still has not recieved one previous years. The way she embrace every single character she take on is breathtaking. She does it in such a moving and realistic way. Her arc on ‘Rescue Me’ was something extraordinary. It takes a lot of strenghts to portray a lifechanging event like that. Although it would be sad to see that one would have to adapt a personal matter on screen to finally recieve an Emmy. On the other hand it would be even more sad if such circumstances would’t give her an Emmy. Because if not, when will true talent ever be recognised? This year must be her year!!!

  • Colin Ferguson for Eureka in the comedy category. Besides having some great lines and reacitons, he is fantastic at physical comedy which you really don’t see much today. He also plays the straight man at times well. Plus, this is the show’s last year.

    Melissa RAusch and Mayim Baylick and Johnny Galecki for the Big BangTheory.

    Paul Rudd for guesting on Parks and Rec.

    Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, Parks & Rec.

    The entire cast of Breaking Bad with the exception of the kid who plays the son and the sister in law.

  • Chloë Sevigny. I mean after 5 snubs for Big Love they better give her a nod for L&O: SVU.

  • Sandra Oh hands down. She’s always fantastic but this past season was freaking unbelievable. It sometimes hurt to watch her scenes you felt her pain so much. Absolutely awesome performances year!!!

  • Hmm.. even though I don’t watch anymore John Noble probably deserves his due.

  • Evan Peters from American Horror Story. Happy Endings in some capacity hopefully. In dream land: Castle. Stana Katic with PTSD…wowzer.

  • I know this will be terribly original of me to say, but I pick Community as the best comedy of the year. It’s the funniest and most original show I’ve seen since a young Arrested Development. Only Louie truly comes close to its perfection. And if Community doesn’t get nominated, for the love of all that’s holy, please nominate Danny Pudi. I’m going to cry if I get online on Thursday and see that Max Greenfield got it over Danny. New Girl really isn’t that good of a show. It’s extremely overrated as are all its actors.

  • Definately MAURA TIERNEY! Come on, she’s been rocking television for ages and never received such credit she really deserves!
    She’s amazing in every role she plays, but her ‘RESCUE ME’ performance worths an Emmy this year!
    Go go Maura!

  • Homeland, Damian Lewis, Claire Danes. Sherlock, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman. I know it’s more likely that only Benedict Cumberbatch will get a acting nomination for Sherlock, but I’d like to see Martin Freeman break through awards-wise on this side of the pond as well. He was a major part of the reason The Reichenbach Fall was so devastating.

  • Revenge, Breaking Bad and the good wife. Jake johnson on New girl. Would love Castle, but it’s already so crowded.

    Comment by sam – July 17, 2012 08:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Justified, Hell On Wheels
    Parks & Rec
    Jake Johnson, Charlie Day

    Comment by Jon – July 17, 2012 09:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Max Greenfield, New Girl – supporting actor, comedy
    Silas Weir Mitchell, Grimm – supporting actor, drama
    Courtney Cox, Cougar Town – actress, comedy (and this is more that she should have been nominated many times before.
    Max Adler, Glee – guest star

    Those are just my top choices for who would tickle me if they got nominated. Of course I don’t think I’ll be upset if none of them happen seeing as I’m still on a Kyle Chandler win-high from last year! LOL!

  • Benedict Cumberbatch! He was absolutely brilliant in “Sherlock”!

    (And I figure this nomination has more of a chance of happening than John Noble.)

    Also, I am not getting up at 5:30am to see these. Emmy nominations are not kind to west coast residents.
