Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and truly like learning more on this matter. If possible, while you gain expertise, would you mind updating your weblog site with more details? It is extremely helpful for me.

I’m not 100% satisfied with this year’s list of Emmy nominations (which, I’m sure, many others aren’t), but I’m still happy for the shows I was rooting for.
Who did YOU think was snubbed?

There are ONLY 6 people, people! There are atleast 20 deserving in EVERY category. They have specific love for specific people, like Kathy Bates, but mostly everyone deserves their nominations. Remember, there are over 15,000 members in the academy. It’s a percentage game.

I am really inspired together with your writing talents and also with the layout to your blog. Is this a paid subject or did you modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent quality writing, it’s uncommon to peer a nice weblog like this one these days..

I do trust all the ideas you’ve presented to your post. They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for novices. May just you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

I think that this year has a pretty bad nominations. Every year yopu get the same shows that get a nomination and win like mad men. They are missing some great shows that have been on over the last year like awke, southland, justified and a hell of a lot more.

Where is Smash and Megan Hilty ? Also, where is Debra Messing ? They deserved to be nominated. But I’m so glad that Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik were nominated.

I love that Mayim was nominated. I love her on Big Bang Theory.

Jane Epsen deserved a writing nominations of “Skin Deep” episode of Once Upon a Time.
