Just the biggies here, the whole list is at:

The ceremony is August 27.

Outstanding Comedy Series:
Arrested Development
The Office
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Two and a Half Men (?)

Outstanding Drama Series:
The Sopranos
Greys Anatomy
The West Wing

Outstanding Lead Actor- Drama:
Christopher Meloni- Law and Order: SVU
Denis Leary- Rescue Me
Peter Krause- Six Feet Under
Kiefer Sutherland- 24
Martin Sheen- The West Wing

Outstanding Lead Actor- Comedy:
Larry David- Curb Your Enthusiasm
Kevin James- The King of Queens
Tony Salhoub- Monk
Steve Carell- The Office
Charlie Sheen- Two and a Half Men

Outstanding Lead Actress- Drama
Kyra Sedgwick- The Closer
Geena Davis- Commander in Chief
Mariska Hargitay- Law and Order: SVU

No major-category nominations for Despirate Housewives or Lost, and a few surprises, mainly Two and a Half Men, and Denis Leary getting a Best Actor nod. How The West Wing managed those three nominations is beyond me as well.

Looking at other sites, the most griping is coming from Lauren Graham not getting nominated again.

SWEET. I am so much more interested in the guest or supporting roles this year.

Looks like they are really pushing the Will & Grace crew this year for their last season.

New Emmy System Gets Its Test (

    The nominations for the 58th annual Primetime Emmys, which will be announced a little after 8:30 a.m. ET Thursday, will be the first under a two-tiered system designed to open up the awards some to those who deserve recognition but haven't necessarily received it in the past. It will also be a public test of whether that system works, and the awards get an infusion of first-time nominees, or whether the Emmys' same-old, same-old reputation endures.

    Under the old voting rules, TV academy members chose their favorite shows and performers, with the top five in each category becoming the nominees. The new system will add an extra layer of voting that the academy hopes will diversify the field.

    Members still vote for their favorites. The races for outstanding drama and comedy, and lead actor and actress in both genres, will then go to "blue-ribbon panels" that will pick the nominees from the top 10 vote-getters in the series categories and the top 15 for lead actor and actress.

Gregory Itzin and Jean Smart BOTH get nominated and I immediately call the new system a success.

Is Shalhoub in line for ANOTHER win? That's OK, he's good.

If you're going to give a sendoff award to Six Feet Under, you give it Conroy.

The lack of a nod for Hugh Laurie is probably the biggest travesty, but nods for BOTH Logans nearly makes up for it.

And the producers of Two and a Half Men clearly have a pact with Satan.

I think this might be the year 24 finally wins the Emmy for Best Drama Series. If House wins, I won't complain. I keep hearing how good Gray's Anatomy is, but I wasn't impressed when I saw it.

Glad to see Itzin and Smart get the recognition they deserve.

I'd like to see Arrested Development get the "Ben Stiller Show" treatment and win the Emmy after cancellation. The Office really kicked it up a notch this year, though, so if that wins, that would be great too.

EDIT: Mr. Eko got screwed.

At least "The 23r Psalm", one of the best episodes of the season, got nominated for Best Writing.

As much as I want Itzin to win, I don't like his chances up against Shatner and Alda. Although, not having watched Boston Legal, is Shatner's character actually that dramatic? From what I've seen in the commercials he always seems to play up the camp and I have a feeling I'm going to be disappointed when he wins again, because I can't imagine anyway he can top The Final Walk of President Logan.

Thank goodness I don't have to vote in the best comedy category. I have a bad feeling that Two and a Half Men will win simply because the other four are so awesome they will split the vote. I think I'd have to give it to the Office, though. I think it had a slightly better season than the other three shows. Slightly.

I'm not surprised Lost didn't get nominated for anything this year. Although I loved the show, it go so wrapped up in its own mythology that I can see it not working as the 'best drama' anymore. Just look at how they underused Sayid and messed around with Locke this year. (Both of whom were nominated last year). After the finale, I TOTALLY see Desmond as Best Guest Actor though.

I'm also not too keen on 24 as Best Drama or Keifer as Best Actor. It was a good season, but you have to take the show with such a large grain of salt these days, I don't know if I can agree with that. The same goes for Keifer. He still runs around breathing heavy and saying Dammit. Not that I don't enjoy the show, but I think as a pure drama, the West Wing was better this season. Although Edgar's death was harder hitting than anything on The West Wing.

I can't believe I'm this hyped about the Emmys... what happened to me?

You could make a pretty good best supporting actor category just from the guys who didn't get nominated, since Rainn Wilson for starters absolutely got the shaft this year, not to mention the two NBC Johns (Krasinski, McGinley). But then again, I'm used to seeing Johnny C. get shunned by the academy. That's five good ones for ya.

That all said, though, either Piven or Arnett absolutely deserve the award. Which is why it'll go to Sean Hayes.

    I don't care what anyone says - Jaime Pressly is a damn good actress.

The director is a little bit too in love with the cartoon take sometimes, but that doesn't mean that she hasn't developed some wicked comic timing and doesn't hit the notes on her character perfectly.

The biggest shocker? No Gandolfini or Falco in the drama acing nods.

My personal choices: Arrested Development, 24, Steve Carell, Allison Janney, Martin Sheen, don't really care for any of the lead comic actress choices, Gregory Itzin, Sandra Oh, Will Arnett, Jamie Pressly (though the lack of a nom for Jessica Walter is this category is glaring -- Alfre Woodard? Come on)

My actual predictions? Lord only knows. The Emmys features more random surprises than any other awards show.

No Emmy love at all for The Shield? Chiklis, CCH Pounder, freakin' Forest Whitaker? No? Kenny f'n Johnson? Nothing?

And I dig Desmond a lot, brother, but if I was gonna give a Best Guest Star nod to anyone from LOST, it'd have to be Michael Emerson as Henry Gale!

Arnett was robbed of a nomination last year, so I'm glad to see his name on there. Taste the happy.

I wonder what HBO did to piss them off. An unusually small amount of nominations for "The Sopranos" (and, though it was a weak season, I'd have skipped Best Dramatic Series and still found room for James Gandolfini and especially Edie Falco who we all said deserved an Emmy for the second episode this year), Ricky Gervais not get a nod for "Extras" and no love at all for "Rome" (Polly Walker owns you, dammit!). Weird.

For the most part, they gave nominations to shows that deserved it, but not enough. If that makes any sense. Like, I'm so thrilled to see Gob get nominated, but where are the nods for Jason Bateman, Jessica Walter, Portia De Rossi and David Cross? (I mean, "Arrested Development" got cancelled, too and, unlike "Will & Grace", "The West Wing" and "Six Feet Under", it never sucked.) I love the love for "The Office", but no nomination for Jenna Fischer (in leiu of Alfie Woodard and Megan Mullally?) How in the world was Julia Louis-Dreyfus nominated for that unwatchable new show of hers and not Mary Louise-Parker for "Weeds"? And how did "LOST" go from the best dramatic series on TV to one unworthy to be spoken in the same breath as the remarkably overrated "Grey's Anatomy". (Oh, and I love Jack Bauer as much as the next real American, but I don't see how a character's extreme badassery translates as Keifer Sutherland being a great actor. Flame away.)

I am glad to see that, if "My Name Is Earl" was only going to get one nomination, it was for the best part of the show. Joy is a hoot, dummy.

Oh, and Charlie Sheen? Really?

Seriously! Especially Jessica, who was nominated last year, and Jason, who was passed over for Kevin James, Charlie Sheen, and Larry David (wonderful man, but best actor?). So JB ends up with only one nomination for his three years, losing his nomination for season 1 to John Ritter's ghost.

Arnett finally getting nominated does mitigate that a little, at least. I've always been mortally offended by his snubs.

No Hugh Laurie is such a crock. No Kristen Bell sucks but was expected.

As great as Kiefer Sutherland is and as much as Jack Bauer is one of the defining characters/heroes of this generation, I think Season 5 was more about all of the other characters than Jack Bauer, who was more of a vehicle to resolve their stories. I think he deserved the nomination and maybe even the win around Season 1-3, but not so much this year.

Looking at the Best Actor nominees, though, I can't see anyone else winning. Krause and Sheen took more of a backseat in the last seasons of their shows, Leary is Dramatic Leary (although the only other viable contender to Kiefer, IMO) on Rescue Me, but I don't know enough about Christopher Meloni to have an opinion on him.

I'd rather have seen Laurie nominated, and win.

EXACTLY. This is a fucking ripoff in the biggest way. The ONLY show on TV that held my attention throughout an entire season.

The entire storyline with Lem, especially the finale was some of the best writing, direction and acting I have seen in my lifetime.

Forrest Whitaker deserves a nod for supporting actor. Without him, the entire show would have been about half as enjoyable.

Just goes to show people who 'vote' for this shit have no idea what good TV is.

I clicked the thread knowing I'd see Hugh Laurie on the nominee list for House. I'm pretty shocked, not only is he not on there, but neither is James Spader. I guess with them giving nods to Meloni (who I have no problem with) and Leary that the competition was just too strong this year.

Looks like Denny Crane will be walking away with the Best Supporting Actor again, and I wouldn't mind much if Candice Bergen won for the Actress side, although I would guess Oh wins again.
