So in the spirit of TV Squad’s Emmy wish list, I thought I’d post some thoughts of my own. I will be making a big post tomorrow (possibly live-blogging, or close to it) about the nominees, but I thought I’d list some hopes and wishes for tomorrow.
Supporting Actress in a Comedy: Jenna Fischer is one of my choices. She had a great season on The Office, and she really deserves a nod. The Jim/Pam moments this season were amazing.
But, I would love to see Amy Poehler get a nomination. Last year, she was nominated–which was a first for Saturday Night Live–and I think she deserves to be recognized again. She may have only been there for half a season, but lest we forget this…
Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program: Now this choice might seem a little out in left field. But, I think Tina Fey (for SNL) should be nominated in this category. She wouldn’t qualify for the Supporting Actress category for Saturday Night Live, because she wasn’t technically a part of the cast. However, her performances as Sarah Palin were absolutely brilliant. And I think the Academy should recognize this in some way. I know she will probably get a nomination for 30 Rock, which is well deserved, but I think Sarah Palin was her real niche this year.
Lead Actress in a Drama: I would like to see my main girls Kyra Sedgwick and Mariska Hargitay get nominated, and from what I’ve seen in the past, they are pretty much locked in. But, usually someone else comes and takes the award away from these deserving leading ladies.
Lead Actor in a Drama: In Treatment is a wonderful show, and I want to see Gabriel Byrne get nominated in this category for playing Dr. Paul Weston. In fact, I’d love to see all the cast members nominated in their relative categories.
Lead Actor in a Comedy: Neil Patrick Harris is one of the best actors out there and not to mention hilarious. Wouldn’t it be great to finally see him get his due while also doubling as a host on the same night? I am crossing my fingers for a legen…wait for it…dary night.
Outstanding Made For Television Movie: Grey Gardens. I’m calling it right now. Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange were quirky and fantastic.
In terms of shows in general, of course I want The Office to get nominated, as well as How I Met Your Mother, In Treatment and 30 Rock. I think it was a great year for television, and I look forward to hearing who the nominees are bright and early tomorrow morning.Tweet
