Congrats to all the nominees! Hugh, America, Project Runway...it's good to see their faces in the crowd.

Still, it's sad not to find any evidence of How I Met Your Mother (in the best comedy category), not to mention the absence of Kristen Bell or Michael C. Hall, and I know Korbi's gonna go ballistic when she sees that Friday Night Lights was dissed. Lost and Battlestar Galactica were robbed in the drama category, but happily both shows got best writing nominations! Woo!

Other exciting news:

  • Supporting actor nominations for Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson on Lost and Masi Oka on Heroes!
  • Guest star nods for Elizabeth Reaser and Kate Burton for Grey's, Judith Light for Betty and Martin Landau for Entourage. Is that something you'd be interested in? Yes, indeedy!

How are you guys feeling? Rage against the machine in the comments below, and we'll try to make the Tater Tops noms a little more gratifying when they come around...
