    Once again House did not win, Emmys are trash.

  • Danni

  • suzette

    i miss watching the sopranos win everything :)

  • HADASBT

    I wished The Office won something, but Mad Men’s Best Drama win made up for it YAY MAD MEN

  • Ariel

    i havent heard of any of those people or shows that won. only house md.

  • julia

    I think Eva Longoria and the Desperate Housewives cast should have won :D

  • kprocks89

    mariska hargitay! =(

  • Jess

    #8 I couldn’t agree more with you.

  • Eric

    House and Hugh Laurie got robbed.

  • http://promomami.blogspot.com becca

    I’m SOOOOO happy Mad Men took writing in a drama series and best drama series

    i LOOOVE that show

  • Ann

    House deserves many Emmys. He is an amazing actor! Have you heard him talk in public? His accent is so strong but his English is amazing! At least Steven Colbert won though! That man is FUNNY!

  • tha

    this award show is a flipping joke.
    honestly, wtf’s up with this winners?

  • Caitlyn

    Seriously? Tina Fey is funny…but did she deserve to win??? Plus, her resemble to Sarah Palin, makes me hate her. I can’t help it. Sorry Tina. If I were you I would look into some lasik surgery and a hair cut!

  • i luv music

    NO. STEVE CARRELL IS THE BEST

  • Caitlyn

    Oh Yeah…and how in the hell could Steve Carrell walk out without an award???? And these random shows that nobody except these critics watch win…..what a big disappointment!!!!!

  • asya

    Betty should’ve win.
    this is sucks =[
    the only shows I know in the list are the amazing race and survivor. GO JEFF AND TINA!! I love how she acted in mean girls lol

  • carolinadelnorte

    Who, the hell is Brian Cranston and why did Michael C Hall not win???? Countin the days till DEXTER comes back!

  • WTF!!!!!!!

    #8, #16, #18 – Damn right!
    Plus, he gives the greatests speeches!

    Also Lost got robbed!!!

  • Chelsey

    This is why I dont watch acting award shows. The people who deserve it never win.

    Kristen Chenoweth should have won supporting actress, and the guy from Lost should have won supportin actor.

    Emmy’s suck.

  • casey

    this is why i stopped watching the emmy’s. house is the best drama on t.v. i love 30 rock but the office is better. no awards for heroes, prison break, or chuck. quality of shows should be at least half way a reflection of ratings. nobody has seen half these shows and there are some that no one has heard of. this is why the emmys cant beat sunday night football in ratings.

  • Rmsg

    No I do not agree with Jeff winning.

  • dEVANEE RICHARDS

    I wish Mariska Hargitay would’ve won for outstanding lead actress in a drama series because she is an amazing actress in Law and Order: SVU, I don’t care what anyone says!!!!!!!

  • Hobo

    I’m gonna say.

    U go peoples. That won

    Mmmmmmm. Yerrrrrrrrr

    Yaaay

  • gossipgirl

    Congratulations to everyone that won and were nominated…

    but that was the most boring show i have ever seen in my whole life.

  • Landon

    HOUSE not winning? Emmy’s are rigged. That show is brilliant.

  • lisa

    seriously.. glenn close? mariska hargitay should have won best actress. and as for the rest, who the hell does the voting? there are so many talented actors and actresses who should have won instead of this group.

    emmys are crap.

  • rg70l

    And Brothers and Sisters???????

  • ben

    emmy is cool

  • sussy

    Everything just at a height! Highly recommended!

  • dRJUBE

    erm, where’s Weeds in all of this??? WTF?

  • zena

    Brian Cranston is the amazing actor who portrayed the father figure Hal on Malcolm in the Middle for 7 years. And after four nominations in the comedic category, he never won an Emmy for his outstanding portrayal of a spastic dad. The fact that his talent was recognized in Drama instead of Comedy is a little ironic to say the least, but his portrayal in Breaking Bad was well deserving of it.

  • Elie

    Where the heck are Lost, Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives?

  • http://www.bajenfans.se Adam

    Great that Bryan Cranston won! Flight of the Conchords should have won at least one category as well though.

  • cara

    i wish Michael C Hall would have won for Dexter….such an awesome show!!!!

  • ANdrea

    THE OFFICE!!!!

  • Lynsey

    HELLO!!!!! The Office is the funniest show on TV. 30 Rock is corny and not funny, just like the current Saturday Night Live. But, I guess not everyone is intelligent enough to get The Office.

  • http://cinefilapornatureza.wordpress.com Kamila

    The Primetime Emmy Awards 2008 was Tina Fey’s night! She totally deserved the 3 Emmys she won last night! She is just the best and, please people, watch “30 Rock”.

  • anna

    i think House should have won outstanding drama series!!!!!!!n everythn else it was nominated in !!!

  • sol

    #26 I totally agree with you Kristen and Michael should have won.He is fantastic on Lost .This year the emmys were real boring ,i don’t even watch many of the shows that won.It’s a shame.I believe people who vote don’t watch many tv or at least don’t get informed on what people like.The only fun was with Steve Carell and Ricky G as well as Don Rickles!

  • Kalilah

    YAY 30 ROCK WON!
    I love Tina Fey.

    HATERS TO LEFT, PLZ.

  • Aaron

    Nothing for Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen!!! BRUTAL!!

  • melissa

    i’m sooo happy Mad Men won – the show is AMAZING!

  • Kirwani

    The Emmy’s are fake.

    LOST should have won each year. but specially this.
    and Only one person of that cast beeing nominated proofs enough.
