Sopranos gets 15 nominations. That's impressive, but perhaps a bit excessive.

I am happy with the love for 30 Rock and Dillon getting nominated for supporting actor in Entourage. But am pissed that they show no love to Dexter (best series this season and Michael C. Hall easily gave the best performance this season), no love to The Shield and no love to The Wire. And I thought Sopranos, though it is the favorite, was very disappointing this season. It projected the air of distinguishment far more than its quality deserved. A good final five minutes does not a great season make.

I'm also glad for Landau's guest actor.

My brother works in post-production for that show. I think they pretty much expect it at this point.
I cant remember specifics but I think david simon has said as much since the first season came out. Id be glad if they never acknowledge it after its 5th and final season, but this season is most surprising, given the critical praise it got.

earlier in the week I read some article somewhere saying despite the wire getting the best reviews maybe ever, it still wont get any attention from the emmies

Yeah I think they basically find comfort with the critical acclaim since they know awards aren't happening at this point. It would be strange to start at season 5, I would think. I never got into the show until my brother actually loaned me the DVDs. Really a great show that deserves more than it gets.

My remote is sitting right next to me and I can't even muster the strength to pretend to care enough to put it on.

I've never watched it, but what from my co-worker says about Boston Legal, it sounds retarded. How this shit got nominated over The Wire is beyond me. Plus they shunned both Tony and Carmella in acting categories.

How this shit got nominated over The Wire is beyond me.
cause they dont get it, it doesnt relate to them. too many black people, about issues that dont affect them.

its much easier to support the dogshit that produced in LA, than real shit produced in Baltimore that might make them actually have to think about the fact that they arent nearly as enlightened and cultured theyd like to believe

Hollywood truly likes to believe theyve got it all figured out- all of these racial and cultural issues. and that town and industry can be so condescending about it. and the wire is a language theyve never seen and they know it. its a rude awakening and its much easier to just ignore it and move right along
