    Jimmy Kimmel is the Man!

    Emmy Hoarders: Modern Family Buried Alive in Noms.

  • Feedback

    They should split the Comedy series supporting actor category into “Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy series” and “Best Supporting Actor in Modern Family”. Like that they get to nominate all 6 male actors in MF. You know they want to.

  • whomoi

    Doesn’t anyone “proof” their material for spelling errors anymore? It’s spelled “recEive”. And it was misspelled several times in this mailing! Sloppy work!

  • Tony

    The middle has always been robbed. Eden Sher is amazing. And Patricia Heaton deserves a nomination too. But Eden Sher is under appreciated she is a 20 year old who plays the roll of a 14-15 year old insanely good! Maybe next year!

  • Nick

    Yay for DWTS, EM:HE, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, The Middle, Missing, MF, and OUAT for their noms. But seriously? Revenge, Castle, and BoP snubbed!!! Damn, they hate me.

  • joel

    And ABC responds by cancelling four of their six nominated dramas.

  • Networkman

    Revenge was definately robbed. I think voters may feel that its “soapish” and want the more edgier cable dramas to be recognize. I don’t care if it is not groundbreaking, if the show’s execution is great and the performances are entertaining than it should be considered. This is exactly why family comedies are also snubbed because they are viewed as not being groundbreaking therefore not of worth to be rewarded. I feel that is BS. If the show is great then give it the respect it deserves. Also actors/actresses who perform in families comedies should feel as if they have a shot at being recognized for their great work as well.

    Yeah ABC – best network in TV… well best Broadcast network teehee!
