2012 Emmy Thread

Well the nominations are out.

Some observations…

All six grown-ups from Modern Family were nominated for supporting actor.

Out of the 12 nominees for best series, 9 were from cable, 1 each for CBS, NBC, and ABC. Fox was shut out.

Neither Conan nor Jay were nominated for their variety shows.

Louis CK picked up five nominations: comedy lead, comedy series directing, comedy special directing, comedy series writing, and comedy special writing

Jon Cryer, perhaps sensing that he can’t compete against the Modern Family cabal, put himself up for lead comedy actor and received a nomination. He previously won for supporting comedy actor for the same role.

There’s already a thread on this.
