    Claire Danes has won every single award for her amazing performance on “Homeland”
    and now she was just ignored by the Emmys :(
    so I’m going to cheer for Julianna Marguilles…she’s incredible as Alicia Florrick on “The Good Wife” :)

    Remember when Glee once had the most nominations? -le sigh- That show had so much potential. Anyway, congrats to the nominees! They deserve it. A little disappointing Community isn’t nominated though…

    Dave Franco Says:

    David Oakes & Emmy Rossum should have been nominated. American Horror Story with 17 noms? LMAO. It’s a good show, but worthy of having that much noms… no. I wish there was more parity in voting, they same shows get nominated.

    Rosie Says:

    “BOARDWALK EMPIRE” receives only three nominations, while the overblown and inferior “DOWNTON ABBEY” receives seven nods? They couldn’t even nominate Kelly MacDonald, Michael Pitt or Gretchen Mol? Really? Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen received nods for their hammy acting in “HEMINGWAY AND GELLER”?
