This is also called: For Some Reason, Monica Cares More About the Emmys than the Tonys This Year.
First of all, Glee received 19 nominations and Mad Men received 17. The surprising thing is that Glee is apparently a comedy and the only reason I can come up with is because at the Golden Globes musicals and comedies are grouped together.
And while I wasn’t expecting David Tennant to get a nomination for either Doctor Who or Hamlet because I didn’t think BBC America would campaign for an award, I would like to know why Bryan Batt isn’t nominated for his role as Salvatore Romano on Mad Men. Still, January Jones, Elizabeth Moss, Christina Hendricks, Jon Hamm, Jon Slattery, and Robert Morse were all nominated.
It was also nice to see Modern Family get quite a few nominations. The Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien received a nomination for Outstanding Variety, Comedy or Music Series. And the best part of the remake of The Prisoner got a nomination. (I’m referring to Ian McKellen’s performance.)
Oh, yeah, and this was nominated for Outstanding Commercial:
The Emmys actually did pretty well this year.
