Jesse Tyler Ferguson: Washington Post (blog) — Broadcast TV is an important decision in the arm on Thursday when Fox comedy-gay high school musical “joy” caught most Emmy nominations for any series, 19, and the comedy of the ABC mockumentary “Modern Family “received 14.
However, the TV Academy continued his love affair with long-standing world wars programs, $ 200,000,000 shower HBO WWII miniseries “The Pacific” with the most nominations of any program – 24.
NBC got a big blow kisses at the TV when the Academy snubbed the triumphant return of “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on this year’s list of contenders, but flattered “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” with a name War of the best variety program derby. Conan, of course, is the man who walked from the program after only seven months when NBC tried to move the show to a space of time after midnight. NBC had wanted to return to the litter Leno 11:35 pm after his disastrous experiment with a primetime network show Leno last season.
Thursdsay morning, Conan foot, “Congratulations to my team four Emmy nominations. This is a good omen for the future of ‘The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.”
On the positive side of the peacck network, CBS Late Show with David Letterman “got excluded as well, after a season in which Letterman published some of its best ratings in ages with a spectacular entrance into the chamber of issues with staff are women, one of which found him on the receiving end of a blackmail attempt.
In fact, men did not behave badly with voters at the Academy this year. Also out of the race is routinely Nomme CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men” as well as its regularity nominated star Charlie Sheen, who, during the recently completed TV season, was accused of mistreating his wife. (“Jubilee” actress Jane Lynch, nominated for playing the cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester of hell in that program, also received one of the “Two and a Half Men” of noms few guest star Charlie Sheen as a shrink).
But overall it was a good day to broadcast the competition trophy, which has evolved into a celebration of all things cable. The Academy noted that half of the 12 nominated comedy and drama series are broadcast shows.
Another good sign for the Emmy broadcast, which has suffered in the ratings, because the alignment of the winners has changed so little in recent years: 5 out of 12 in the series noms derby shows in their first seasons.
“” Joy of nominations are the Broadway-seasoned Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison, who each earned best action track nods to complement the best comedy series nomination. In this large breed “joy” goes against “Modern Family”, who left with a whopping five nominations for best actors. expansive set of the show collectively decided to throw their names in the ring as supporters – do not drive. The noms including cast members Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen. Show patriarch Ed O’Neill, was a snub, it’s nothing new: the academy ignored him a year starred in “Married … with Children.”
(Vergara was one of two stars that announces the new crop of Emmy noms Thurday morning. She joined Joel McHale, who, TV academy CEO John Shaffner told in the air, was not nominated. “He called me,” McHale Snark of not performing, nominated in the comedy ratings-starved NBC, “Community”).
“” Joy of count 19-nomination is not breaking the record of 22 noms in one year, set by NBC’s “30 Rock” last year. (“30 Rock” nabbed 15 nominations Thursday morning.)
And speaking of progress, CBS got really shows full respect for his freshman drama “good wife” was one of the new drama series to break this season. This includes a nom de guerre for best drama, one for the star Julianna Margulies, and one for best writing.
Is it safe to go out: The Academy has placated the rabid “Lost” fans giving the canceled ABC drama cult an impressive 12 nominations for its final season, including best drama – a derby where “Lost” no has seen no action since their first season when he won the statuette. Also at the “Lost” list: one actress prize as Matthew Fox and supporting noms de Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson.
In a strange nominations this year, the Academy decided that the 200 and two hundred and first episode of Comedy Central’s “South Park” deserves to be considered in the entertainment program, which will compete against the likes of Fox stalwarts “The Simpsons” and HBO’s critically acclaimed “The Ricky Gervais Show, an animated version of Ricky Gervais podcasts, which hangs Gervais and chat with friends Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington.
episodes, however, the 200nd and two hundred and first of “South Park” were censored by Comedy Central does not show what viewers were led to believe was an image of Mohammed dressed in a bear suit – but actually turned out to be Saint Nicholas. Moreover, the series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, publicly ridiculed the versions of the episodes that were censored TV show, Comedy Central saying they had been ruined. Which raises the question: Who sends these two episodes for review by the Academy of Television, and the Emmy academy to Comedy Central on August 29 to censure one of its programs?
Contacted for comment, Comedy Central sent the following comment canned:
“We are very proud of” South Park’s tenth nomination Emmy general and hope that the series will be honored with his fifth Emmy Award later this year. ”
Notice how the cable network totally dodged the question, and any “censorship” thing, while getting two plugs for comparison of the series noms and wins count – well done, Comedy Central!
In its third decade on the air, “Saturday Night Live” finally became the most nominated program in television history, with an estimated lifetime of 126 nominations. That’s two more than the previous record “ER” was recorded in his 15 seasons. “Saturday Night Live” won this nabbing another 12 noms in the nomination announcement ceremony, the TV academy headquarters in North Hollywood. And yes, the night NBC show has to thank Betty White, she has received one of the 12 noms for guests to host the series. Better yet, in that category her battle Tina Fey, former head writer of the program and the star, who took a break from the executive production, writing and starring in primetime on NBC’s “30 Rock” to return to “Saturday Night Live “as guest host.
But wait – there’s more news of Betty White. Remember that Snickers ad which addressed the octogenarian? It is also nominated for an Emmy – for best commercial.
Speaking of old people, the academy gave its long-standing policy is not to appoint Fangs HBO vampire drama “True Blood,” about a psychic waitress and her vampire 173-year-old, for best drama series.
All this love for the new programming does not mean this year’s Emmy broadcast - was established in August from September to accommodate NFL football on NBC this year’s Emmy network – not necessarily a repetition of last year (which, in turn, was a repeat of last year). The three-time winner of the best comedy “30 Rock” has once again been nominated in that category.
“We are very grateful and excited – especially since today is the fifth anniversary of the NBC days we forgot to cancel,” Fey said Thursday morning in a statement – issued to the Press on NBC.
Also new in the race for best drama series, “Two-time winner of AMC Mad Men.” The 1960s-set drama Madison Avenue is this year’s most nominated drama series with 17 bids for trophies.
“Amazing Race”, which has had a death grip better competition reality series since the category was created, it is again. And “Conan” Tonight Show “faces” of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show “has won the competition best variety show the last seven consecutive years.
Meanwhile, “30 Rock, Alec Baldwin, AMC’s” Breaking Bad “meth-cooking professor Bryan Cranston, and” FX Damages “harpy Glenn Close – all of whom grabbed his second best action consecutive victories last year – have increased again in their respective categories: best actor in a comedy, drama theater actor and actress.
Baldwin Jim Parsons as Duke of “The Big Bang Theory CBS, HBO Larry David for” Curb Your Enthusiasm, “Tony Shalhoub in his last bid for the lead role in U.S. series now canceled “Monk” and Steve Carell of “The Office”.
Cranston is accompanied by “Mad Men” Jon Hamm, “Lost” Fox, Michael C. Hall of “Dexter,” Kyle Chandler of “Friday Night Lights” and Hugh Laurie of “House.”
About faced against “Mad Men” January Jones, The Good Wife of Margulies, TNT ‘s “The Closer” star Kyra Sedgwick, Connie Britton of “Friday Night Lights” and Mariska Hargitay of “Law & Order : Special Victims Unit. ”
And last year winning the best comedy actress, Toni Collette of “Showtime The United States of Tara”, is in competition this year with newcomer Michele of “joy”, but also familiar faces “and” 30 Rock Fey Julia Louis-Dreyfus for the canceled CBS sitcom, “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” Edie Falco of “Showtime‘s Nurse Jackie,” and NBC Parks and Recreation “star Amy Poehler.
“Jubilee” and “Modern Family” not only face “30 Rock”, but “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Nurse Jackie” and “The Office” in the race for best comedy.
Meanwhile, “True Blood,” “Lost,” “The Good Wife” and “Mad Men” make strange bedfellows in the drama series race which also includes “Breaking Bad” and “Showtime‘s Dexter.”
most nominated program this year? HBO World War II epic “The Pacific”, produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, with a whopping 24 noms. That, however, set a record. The old miniseries “Roots” still holds that one, with 37 noms.
The only competing against miniseries “The Pacific” is “Back to Cranford PBS.
Movie stars abound in the film career of cable pay television, dominated, as usual. the performance of Al Pacino as the euthanasia advocate Dr. Jack Kevorkian in HBO’s “You Do not Know Jack” and the movie itself, were nominated.
