Sandie’s Emmy 2010 Wishlist

Emmy Awards

Everyone has their own TV taste and when it comes to rewarding the best of the best, it’s pretty much impossible for everyone to agree. That said even though it’s a little late to influence voters (since ballots are due today) I thought I would share some of my hopes for the Emmy nominations this year. I didn’t pick 5 nominees for each category because I just decided to include my top choice(s), so here it goes.

  • Best Comedy Series
    Glee (FOX)
    Modern Family (ABC)
    Community (NBC)
    The Big Bang Theory (CBS)

    You have some great picks here Sandie. That is a really tough choice for me between Modern Family, Community and The Big Bang Theory. I’m not sure if I could pick a winner because I love them all so much.

    I definitely agree that I would love to see Danny Pudi get a nod for best supporting comedy actor. 🙂

    You know, I put Legend of the Seeker on my to watch list and never got to it. Obviously, I’ve missed out.

    Great list! I would add Justified to Best Drama, Timothy Olyphant to Best Lead Actor (Drama) and Walter Goggins for Best Supporting Actor (Drama)–hey, look, a theme!

    I would give Modern Family the edge in best comedy because it’s the one show I have to rewind at some point each week because I couldn’t hear some dialogue over my laughter.

    • Michelle, you have to watch Legend of the Seeker, it’s a really great show!

      As for Justified, it’s my turn to feel ashamed, I am really behind and so far have only watched one episode, so I can’t really judge it that well.

    lovely choices.. but would defenitly add Craig Horner to the best actor list..his work on “legend of the seeker” is Legendary!!.. he’s seriously the best actor i’ve ever seen! so convincing..he IS THE SEEKER! =) and a very good looking one i may add..but dont think i’m just lovin his looks..he is an amazing actor and deserves this award for it.

    Legend of the Seeker deserves several nominations, aside from best show/actor/actress, for cinematography and musical score as well. The show is BEAUTIFUL!!

    I so hope it comes back for a 3rd Season.
