The 2007 Emmy Awards Nominations: Lost Snubbed, Sopranos Praised

After months of coverage and more than a little bit of analysis, it is has finally come down to this: this morning, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences have officially announced their nominations for what their voters believed to be the best in television over the past year. Are they right on the money, or are they off the mark once again?

The Big Stories

– Lost and Friday Night Lights snubbed, although Lost dominates in Supporting Actor with Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson! Woo!

– The Sopranos leads with 15 nominations.

– Battlestar Galactica and Lost each garnered writing and directing nods on the Drama side, while 30 Rock and The Office dominated the categories in terms of Comedy series.

– There’s a lot of snubs all over the place, I’ll go into more detail tomorrow, but Michael C. Hall is the worst one. Yes, worse than Lost.

– Rainn Wilson and Jenna Fischer break through as supporting contenders for The Office, which garnered a whole lot of nominations once you factor in writing and directing.

  1. Wait, no, that’s not all:

    SHOWDOWN 2K7
    Outstanding Individual Performance In A Variety Or Music Program
    Stephen Colbert vs. Tony Bennett

  2. COLBERT NATION UNITE. Bennett is old and frail, we can take him.

  3. Also of note: “Dick in a Box” received a nomination for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.

  4. Ah yes, well found. I also noticed this, and found it exciting. Less exciting, however, was the lack of a nomination for “Let’s Go to the Mall” from How I Met Your Mother. Robin Sparkles got ROBBED.

    Also, as a note: Supporting Actor categories are almost perfect. Bravo, those panelists.
