I don't understand why The Sopranos and The West Wing were nominated. These shows are mere shadows of their former selves. There are other shows more worthy of a Best Drama nod. Rescue Me, Deadwood and Lost come to mind.

I was shocked and disappointed that Hugh Laurie didn’t get a nomination. I desperately wanted Kristin Bell nominated for Veronica Mars.

Even though I only get to see Battlestar on DVD. If this season is anything like the previous seasons, I'm saddened by that omission as well.

So much for the new voting system. Maybe next year, Veronica Mars!

I too didn't understand the Lost omission. though I didn't mind the loss of Desperate Housewives. That one is the former shadow.

No Naveen Andrews or Hugh Laurie? Agree that The Sopranos & Westwing have well and truly jumped though.
