How did we do in our predictions for the 58th Primetime Emmy Awards? Not too shabby … ignoring the fact that our pick for Best Drama, Lost, wasn’t even nominated. Putting aside that utter inanity, the list of nominees on major categories was announced this morning:
Best Comedy Series: Scrubs; Arrested Development; Two and a Half Men; Curb Your Enthusiasm; The Office
Best Actor in a Drama: Kiefer Sutherland (24); Martin Sheen (The West Wing); Denis Leary (Rescue Me); Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit); Peter Krause (Six Feet Under)
Best Actress in a Drama: Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under); Geena Davis (Commander in Chief); Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit); Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer); Allison Janney (The West Wing)
Best Actor in a Comedy: Steve Carell (The Office); Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm); Kevin James (The King of Queens); Tony Shalhoub (Monk); Charlie Sheen (Two and a Half Men)
Best Actress in a Comedy: Stockard Channing (Out of Practice); Lisa Kudrow (The Comeback); Jane Kaczmarek (Malcom in the Middle); Debra Messing (Will & Grace); Julia Louis-Dreyfus (The New Adventures of Old Christine)
The ceremony will be hosted by Conan O’Brien and takes place Auguest 27. That leaves us with just enough time to stage a protest and get Lost on the ballot.
