The 63rd Emmy Award Nominations
The Emmy Award Nominations were just announced and I will be letting you all know who I would like to see win by using a (*).
- Boardwalk Empire
- The Good Wife*
- Mad Men
- Friday Night Lights
- Game of Thrones
* This past season of The Good Wife was absolutely brilliant, not sure how but it topped the fantastic first season.
Lead Actress in a Drama Series:
- Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men)
- Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights)
- Mariska Hargitay (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit)
- Mireille Enos (The Killing)
- Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife)*
- Kathy Bates (Harry's Law)
* Julianna Margulies was brilliant this past season, like the show, she was even better this season.
Lead Actor in a Drama Series:
- Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire)
- Michael C. Hall (Dexter)*
- Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights)
- Jon Hamm (Mad Men)
- Hugh Laurie (House)
- Timothy Olyphant (Justified)
* I will always love Dexter, which means I will always vote for Michael C. Hall.
Supporting Actress in a Drama Series:
- Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire)
- Christina Hendricks (Mad Men)
- Michelle Forbes (The Killing)
- Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife)*
- Margo Martindale (Justified)
- Christine Baranski (The Good Wife)
* I love both Archie and Christine on The Good Wife, but Archie Panjabi's character showed a completely different side this past season.
Supporting Actor in a Drama Series:
- John Slattery (Mad Men)
- Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age)
- Walton Goggins (Justified)
- Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones)
- Josh Charles (The Good Wife)
- Alan Cumming (The Good Wife)*
* Alan Cumming on The Good Wife was fantastic this season. Season 2 would not be great without him.
- Parks and Recreation
- The Office
- Modern Family*
- 30 Rock
- The Big Bang Theory
* I love Glee but this past season was off and on. It felt more like it was about the guest stars instead of the core cast.
Lead Actress in a Comedy Series:
- Laura Linney (The Big C)
- Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie)
- Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreations)
- Melissa McCarthy (Mike and Molly)
- Marsha Plimpton (Raising Hope)

- Matt LeBlanc (Episodes)
- Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory)
- Steve Carell (The Office)
- Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory)

- Jane Lynch (Glee)
- Betty White (Hot in Cleveland)
- Julie Bowen (Modern Family)
- Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live)

- Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family)
- Ed O'Neill (Modern Family)
- Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family)
