Desperate Housewives Desperate Again

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Brad Garrett announced the 58th annual Primetime Emmy award nominations this morning and the big talk is all about how the Desperate Housewives and Lost were left out of the best series nominations. In fact, the only housewife to get a nom was Alfre Woodard. As for those who were Academy favorites this year, 24 got 12 noms, Grey's Anatomy got 11 and Will & Grace received 10. Also kudos to Lisa Kudrow for being nominated for The Comeback. Maybe now HBO will realize that was a show they should have held on to.

I love everybody on Weeds, Elizabeth Perkins is outstanding, though I think Megan Mullaly will win it. I like two and a half men it's really funny. Arrested development is the greatest imo. Scrubs really deserves some recognition and I feel what hotstuff is saying about Grey's vs. lost but GA is just so very. Sandra Oh has been the shit since Arliss and Chandra Wilson is amazing so that's a tough one. I saw Chandra Wilson in an interview and she was so cool. She had me cracking up. That's all I remember or care about I guess lol

Yay for Six Feet Under... I miss that show! Peter Krause (Nate on the show) is a cutie... everyone is (and should be) over the Desperate Housewives these days

Well guess I won't be watching this year. Lost should have been nominated even more so than GA in my opinion. Am I the only one who notices that GA barely even has any dialogue? There are plenty of scenes that are like 3 sentences long and the format of the show is a patient always dies. I also hate stupid love triangles I could care less if she ends up w/ Dr. dreamy or steamy. DH is a JOKE. I have no clue why people love it so much. Terry Hatcher is annoying as hell ( in real life). UGH they are ALL annoying on DH.

Desperate Housewives not nominated! Oh no. Boohoo! Such a shame, let's boycott this rather discriminating awards show. I agree with a lot of the nominations. Good stuff! :D

I love Gilmore Girls too, even though they take it on and off the air here so I don't get to see it all that much. I love Lost, so I am disappointed it didn't get nominated, but happy Grey's Anatomy did. And the friends fan in me is happy for Lisa.

And as for Lost...yes I am hooked but I am also bored...Hurly was interviewed yesterday on a radio station yesterday in London and he said that he signed up for 7...YES 7 Season....WTF...I will be dammed if I am going to waste 5 more years of my life wondering if they are going to be saved or what those damm numbers mean and why....god I just don't care about this either.

JennaV...I am glad the desperate dimwits did not get nominated too because the whole prestigous event gets ruined with which one is going to win..WHO CARES???? that show has not been good since season 1 episode 4.

Jamie Prestley should win the comedy spot - Hands down. She so plays that role to a T!

Love hat my Bravo Shows - Project Runway and Kathy Griffin My life on the D list were nominated. These shows are the best. I seriously laugh my butt off at the Kathy Griffin antics - she is so D list (AKA Hollywood White trash) and so makes complete fun of herself about it! If she wins and emmy - she might actually get an upgrade to C or B list! Alos miss Arrested Development - but gla dto see they got a nod - take that FOX! And I am also a HUGE Office and Grey's Anatomy fan.
JennaV JennaV 11 years your friend as hot as Jim?

i agree with everyone else -- DH totally lost whatever interesting mystery storyline it had and became just a bad soap opera with unlikeable characters... Lost became, and remains, utterly lost. i think they were more surprised than anyone when the show took off and they hadn't actually written scripts beyond the first 5 episodes... now i could care less what the island mystery is. it's probably one of those lame stephen king giant spider things...

I think DH is probably the most overrated show on air. I like Felicity Huffman in general, but, I am glad none of those twits were nominated. I would love for Chris Meloni to win as well. Ohhh...the Office and Scrubs were both nominated!!! And Steve CArrell! And I have loved Jean Smart since she was on Designing Women! What a great group of nominees. Six Feet Under was a really good show and I would love someone to win from that cast.

I only watch: DH THE OFFICE AND sniff sniff ARRESTED D... Hope the office or AD wins!! BEST SHOWS EVER! too bad AD got the boot :( It was a funny show now I got the OFFICE! Too funny I must say I got a desk like PAM and a "friend" just like JIM! I want AD back someone please pick it up and bring it back I want my TOBIAS!!

I am SOOOOO excited for 24, Kiefer and everybody who is involved with the show. Kiefer keeps getting nominated but never wins. Of course this year he is up against Peter Krause from Six Feet Under. He was just as equally awesome in that show even if it is totally different. Can't wait to watch!

Hey, I love GG too! I heard a lot that Lauren Graham was expected to get a nomination, so I'm really surprised she didin't. The 6th season wasn't the greatest, but she still brought her A-Game. Especially in that scene where Paul Anka was sick, and sleeping on Rory's bed... Lorelai was crying and saying she's a horrible mother... so heart breaking! Same with the scene at Lane's wedding party when she got up on stage and gave the most uncomfortable speech ever. I wish Luke wasn't such an ass... but I still don't forgive her for sleeping with Christopher lol.

I'm a Gilmore Girls fan too!Amazing show-I can't say the same about desperate housewives! I'm also a Gillian Anderson fan and I'm so excited that she got nominated for the Bleak House,she's an amazing actress and her performance in the series is outstanding!

Ah, KimmiAnn, another GG fan!(There aren't that many of us, so we have to stick together!) I looove the show and Lauren Graham, but I'm so angry about season 6. It was just very ... unsatisfying. But anyway, Lauren's Emmy nomination is waaay past due. I'm so mad that The King of Queens and Two and a Half men get nominations, but none for Lauren or Gilmore Girls. Gah. Injustice.
KimmiAnn KimmiAnn 11 years
OMG Rebecca! That's JUST what I was gonna say! Gilmore Girls is an incredible show and deserves some freakin' credit! Who gives a shit that it's on WB? UGH! Their dialog is sooo complicated and fast! The quick wit and incredible acting is just completely dissed every year and I'm sick of it! GOOOOOOO GILMORE GIRLS!!!!!!!!
RebeccaMarie RebeccaMarie 11 years
Goddamn. Where's my Lauren Graham? I am glad about LK, and the lack of Housewives though.

I hope next year Wentworth Miller at least gets a nomination. He's great on Prison Break... and I'm not just saying that because he's my TV Boyfriend. Same with Kristen Bell. Week after week she gave amazing performances on VM.
Shiloh-Jolie-Pitt Shiloh-Jolie-Pitt 11 years
I agree that DH went downhill in its last season...and Lost got too freacking slow!

I so would love to see Chris Meloni get an Emmy for his role on SVU!
