Emmy Nominations 2010

This was not intentional, but I happened to be watching the Today show when the nominations were announced, so I thought I'd share my glee (pun intended) with everyone.   First and foremost - Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton were each nominated for Actor/Actress in a Drama series for their exceptional performances as Coach Eric Taylor and his wife Principal Tammi Taylor.  This is the first nominations for the show in a major category (casting isn't a major category).  Hooray - my love for the show is shown here, here, and here.  The other great surprises were all the nominations for Glee, particularly in the supporting and guest categories.  Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer, and Kurt's Dad Mike O'Malley were all nominated.  I loved the relationship between Kurt and his dad this season, with all they went through when Kurt came out, and then dealing with Finn's homophobia.  Amazing that they were actually recognized for this work.  Also, Lost was recognized as a Best Drama series for the first time since it's first season, along with a first nomination for Matthew Fox (and Terry O'Quinn and Micheal Emerson, both previous winners) Otherwise, there weren't a lot of surprises, lots of regular nominees, but here's hoping some new people win.

I really wish Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson were nominated. I'm afraid I'm one of the few that don't love Mad Men but Amy Poehler's nom made me happy.
