Emmy Finalists Revealed

Last week the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences revealed the top ten vote-getters for outstanding drama series and outstanding comedy series, which will be whittled down to the final five in each category when Emmy nominations are announced later this month. They are: Comedy: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage, Family Guy, Flight of the Conchords, The Office, Pushing Daisies, 30 Rock, Two and a Half Men, Ugly Betty, & Weeds.

Drama: Boston Legal, Damages, Dexter, Friday Night Lights, Grey's Anatomy, House, Lost, Mad Men, The Tudors, & The Wire.

Three words: Friday. Night. Lights. It simply HAS to be one of the final five nominees this year, making up for its unconscionable snub last year.

If I had my way, the chips will fall this way come July 17:

Outstanding Comedy Series nominees: Entourage, Flight of the Conchords, 30 Rock, The Office, Pushing Daisies.

Outstanding Drama Series nominees: Dexter, Friday Night Lights, Mad Men, Lost, The Wire.

But honestly, all I really care about is FNL getting a nomination. Emmy voters, if you're reading this: give the show some love!!!
