Emmy nominations 2012: the good and the bad
Emmy nominations show some deserving recipients, but other shows and actors have gotten snubbed again.
THE GOOD: Despite the fact that our list of “good” seems to get smaller and smaller every year thanks to a voting body that inexplicably continues to place a priority on big names versus talent (See: Uma Thurman’s Outstanding Guest Star Actress in a Drama nod for SMASH), the Academy of Television Arts & Science did get a few things right. Namely, nominations for a handful of much deserving small screen newcomers like HOMELAND’s Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, SHERLOCK’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman and would appear to be the entirety of Britain’s DOWNTON ABBEY (Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Brendan Coyle, Jim Carter, Maggie Smith and Joanne Froggatt) Equally exciting, recognition for the likes of Don Cheadle (HOUSE OF LIES), Lena Dunham (GIRLS), NEW GIRL’s Zooey Deschanel and Max Greenfield, Merritt Wever (NURSE JACKIE), Anna Gunn (BREAKING BAD), and Jason Ritter (PARENTHOOD).Skip to next paragraph
