I've already told you my thoughts on the comedy and drama nominations for the Emmys, but I'm not done quite yet. Today, I have a look at some of the more offbeat nominees and stranger categories (and there sure are plenty) for the awards:
- So the Extras Extra Special Series Finale got submitted as a TV movie, and it came out with six nominations. My favorite: Ashley Jensen for supporting actress in the miniseries/movie category. Her work is always hilarious, but she also got some of the more touching moments in the finale.
- The lead actress category for miniseries/movies has some serious acting powerhouses. Check out this list of talent: Catherine Keener, Susan Sarandon, Judi Dench, Laura Linney, Phylicia Rashad. Pretty impressive company.
- I love plumbing the more obscure Emmy categories for shows that can now refer to themselves as "Emmy-nominated." Like, for example, "The Emmy nominated Pirate Master!" Or, perhaps, "The Emmy-nominated According to Jim!"
- Chuck may have only gotten two Emmy nominations, but they're both totally appropriate: one for Outstanding Stunt Coordination, and the other for Outstanding Main Title Design.
