If Friday Night Lights doesn't win something this year it'll be a travesty. Criminally overlooked its entire run.

Nothing for Community = Disgrace
Nothing for Terriers = Disgrace
Nothing for Rubicon = Disgrace

The biggest joke of a category has to be the best supporting actor in a comedy. Four out of six noms go to Modern Family and nothing for Community?! Don't get me wrong, I really like Modern Family but it hasn't been a great season. Meanwhile Donald Glover and Danni Pudi were knocking it out of the park week in week out. I even thought Chevy Chase may have gotten a nod.

EDIT: Just to continue the rant a little, how the hell has Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson) not got a nom?

Actually Rubicon got a nom for it's title sequence but yeah I agree completely otherwise.
There was also nothing for Treme.

I totally agree regarding all the Mod. Family nominations for what was a disappointing season but I have to stick with my Parks & Recreation loyalty & show outrage at the absence of both, the awesome Aziz Ansari & Nick Offerman who were knocking it out of the park week in week out. I even thought Rob Lowe may have gotten a nod.

Regarding the other nominations, great to see both Friday Night Lights & The Good Wife feature so prominently.

Anyone want to explain how Sherlock got a nod for visual effects? Were there any?

Shocking lack of recognition for Fringe, and Rubicon.

Also, where’s The Walking Dead?? – shouldn’t that be in the mix in some capacity, or have I missed it??

Am I the only one that found Rubicon a drawn out bore
that could have been a two hour movie instead?

Good to see lots of noms for The Good Wife,
and there is something wrong if Peter Dinklage doesn't win
for GOT.

It's a fabulous series just as it is! *still praying for a blu-ray release, hell I'll take a dvd release if that's all they'll offer I just hope they do*

There are too many GLARING omissions this year, it's like the Emmy peeps latched onto a couple of shows last year and that's all they bothered to watch again this year regardless of the quality of other stuff. Or as Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter said, they're just old. His post noms tweets are hilarious!

http://twitter.com/#!/sutterink

"saw two academy members on the gold course. one asked the other what club to use. then they both died because they were so ******* old."

"broke into an academy member's porn locker. found sticky fully-clothed photos of mariska hargitay, kathy bates...and matt weiner. very odd."

"these two academy member walk into a bar. one orders a beer. then they both die because they're so ******* old."

"best part of not getting an emmy nod. now i don't have to pretend i give a **** about the profiteering douchebag academy."

"because you know if we were nominated i'd be all humble and blowing smoke up their asses. now i can stay true to myself and just be a dick."

"the worse part of not getting any emmy nods is all the wasted blowjobs i gave at the academy picnic. my breath still smells like sour amonia"

"**** glee. hate those annoying, "please accept me for who i am", singing brats. there, i said it. are you happy?"

"me, david simon and frank darabont are meeting at home depot to rent chainsaws and woodchippers."

nothing for community - go **** yourselves
nothing for breaking bad - go **** yourselves

if kristen wiig doesn't win they can **** themselves, too. she is easily the most talented comedic actress of her generation. if it weren't for her SNL would be about 15 minutes long.
