OUCH
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” :)

@Andini: glee is a joke.

# 7

Go Clive and Nicole. And yeah for Michael C. Hall!

# 8

Where is community?
‘Girls’ Suck big time…should not have been nominated..
On another note…Really Happy for Michael C Hall’s nomination + All of Breaking Bad nominations :)

Same old tired crew gets noms!

So happy The Voice got a nomination. It would be so cool that they win!! It’s my favorite show to watch!!Also excited that American Horror Story got nods! Hope they win some awards!!

max greenfield!!! hope he beats the modern family guys!! :)

Hey Jared. Claire Danes WAS nominated for an Emmy. Check out their website. Can’t believe you forgot her.

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…

Umm, there must be 6 nomination for best leading actress in a tv drama. There are just 5, Claire Danes is missing. Please put her, thanks.

forgot to include ‘Veep’s nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series.

No community? Or Shameless? Not surprised about Glee…show’s gone downhill.

Game of Thrones and Sherlock xD

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.

Dave Franco @ 07/19/2012 at 10:59 am

Btw… GIRLS, a comedy series? Has anyone laughed? I haven’t.

Again no love for SOA.. Hate this!!

Give the Emmy to Nicole Kidman!

Glenn Close and Christine Baranski . my vote.

@Weber from Brazil: Claire Danes did get nominated :) Hope she wins! :D

i am sooo happy for Nicole Kidman

“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”?
