The nominations for the 57th Annual Primetime Emmys were announced today. Leading the nominations were the ABC skank saga Desperate Housewives, NBC's Will & Grace (a show so unfunny it's not funny), and the legitimately amazing TV movie The Life and Death of Peter Sellers. What's great, however, is that Deadwood was nominated for best drama and its star Ian McShane was nominated for best lead actor in a drama. What really really sucks though is that Super Powers Boothe (so so deserving on a best supporting nod) got the shaft. Deadwood's writers got the same--no nominations for best writing on a TV drama. That is an abomination against god and man.

As I said at Tom the Dog's blog, I agree. The writers were shafted and every actor deserves a mention. I guess the Emmys are the same as the Grammys --- the same tired old pablum is heaped with awards while a nod or two is given to those strange "hip" new things the academy doesn't understand but knows it ought to at least acknowledge, like Tom Waits and Deadwood.
