Emmy nominations 2010: Who got snubbed? And which nominee has you most excited?

Thursday, Jul 8, 2010


The 2010 Emmy Award nominations are in, and while there are certainly reasons to celebrate — nods for Glee‘s Chris Colfer and Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara, for starters — I can’t help feeling like a dog staring down a bowl of cold kibble while the whole family sits down to the table for a juicy steak dinner. Too early for that kind of heavy food metaphor? Okay, let’s start ranting about the snubs that have us all seething with fury — because it’ll be hard to even process the full list of nominees until we’ve released the pressure in our chest cavities over the ones that got away. Oh, and just so this post doesn’t turn into a rioting mob armed with brickbats and torches, be sure to finish your screed by sharing the nomination that made you happiest. I’ll get us started…you pick up the baton in the comments below. Okay, here goes…

Where the heck is the love for Ugly Betty‘s Vanessa L. Williams? I know, I know, the folks at Emmy HQ have already sent instructions to their engraving department telling them to get started on Jane Lynch’s statuette for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy. But I was hoping that after four magnificent years of bringing to life unrelentingly bitchy fashion editor Wilhelmina Slater, Williams might finally get her due. I mean, this is a woman who got the nation to fall in love with her character while spewing lines like “My favorite moment of the day is throwing out my breakfast muffin in front of a homeless person!”

And while we’re on the subject of comedic actors, how about Cougar Town‘s Courteney Cox? True, the pilot about her man-hunting, sex-obsessed fortysomething turned off some folks, but by the end of the season, Cox was leading a hilarious weekly ensemble party, one punctuated with surprising touches of poignancy, and liberal pours of vino.

Which snubs are too much for you to bear? Release your pain and rage in the comments below!

  1. Words can not describe the anger i am feeling!!!! GRRRR she is by far the best actress America has ever seen, so talented and so INCREDIBLY beautiful, and STILL no nomination? Cougar Town deserves it so much more than any other program (and since when was Glee a comedy?). She deserves to be recognized for her hard work! I’m just going to sit here being FURIOUS till some of the jerks down at the Emmy headquarters realize the HUGE mistake they have made, and realize the enormous number of fans they have pissed off by not nominating her! from possibly the most enraged person in Britain ¬_¬
