I’m coming out of my mid-summer fandom hibernation to say a quick “congrats” to all my favorite shows that scored Emmy nominations this morning.
Lost was nominated for 7 Emmys, including Best Drama Series (!!!), Best Cinematography, and Best Supporting Actor for Michael Emerson, which is MUCh deserved.
The Office was nominated for 8 Emmys, including Best Comedy Series, Best Actor (Steve Carell), Best Supporting Actor (Rainn Wilson), and a slew of writing and directing Emmys.
And *gasp* BATTLESTAR GALACTICA was nominated for 5 Emmys, including Best Writing, Best Special Effects, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing!!!
30 Rock got a crazy 17 nominations for pretty much everything ever! Including Will Arnett for Best Guest Actor!
Flight of the Conchords were nominated for 2 of their songs, Dexter is nominated for Best Drama Series, Family Guy was nominated for Blue Harvest, Extras got 6 noms, including one for Ricky Gervais, The Daily Show and Colbert got their usual nods…
Altogether not too disappointing (although a writing nomination for Lost, or an acting nom or the *unthinkable* – a Best Drama Series for BSG would have been frakking awesome) But hell, even Supernatural got a nomination.

I knew I had good taste in TV.
