Red Right Hand: A SELECTION OF NOT EMMY NOMINATIONS

A SELECTION OF NOT EMMY NOMINATIONS

Emmy nominations are announced on July 19. I expect there will be the usual disappointments, maybe a surprise or two, some genuine recognition, and a lot of the same old general wrongness. Who knows, since there have been some more tweaking to the rules and stuff. Whatever. To me, Emmys are just kinda of like big gold talking points.

In advance of the announcements, I present the nominations for the My Not Emmys of which the categories are few, the decisions unapologetically capricious and the winners remain unannounced so that I don't have to make tough decisions. Eligibility requirements are that they aired in the U.S. during the Emmy eligibility period and that I have watched it (sorry, second season of Rome - shut out because I waited for DVD) and remembered it while I was writing this post (sorry, ___________) . After the 19th, should I be so inclined to compare and contrast, I will...compare and contrast.

Though thanks to the leaks in this year's Emmy process, we already know that some of my selections are certain to not be duplicated and were possibly not even submitted.

I also invite you, gentle reader...or vicious reader to proffer your own award nominations, either in comments or on your own site. Your choices, your rules.

Do keep in mind that the following is hardly a scientific or even remotely objective assessment and is far more reflective of stuff that I dig with just a little bit of filtering for stuff that I dig but know is crap.


NOMINEES FOR AWESOMENESS IN A DRAMA SERIES
The Emmys have done six before, so I did six.
NOMINEES FOR AWESOME WRITING IN A DRAMA SERIES
NOMINEES FOR AWESOMENESS IN A COMEDY SERIES
Wherein I nominate essentially all of the comedies I watch...not that it's a big field or anything these days.
NOMINEES FOR AWESOME WRITING IN A COMEDY SERIES
I'm not expecting much in the way of duplication in the comedy categories, though I think The Office for series is a gimme. Hell, selecting Gilmore Girls where I did was the equivalent of the Academy uselessly acknowledging a series well after it's too late.
