    I thought Justin Chambers “Karev” on Grey’s did really excellent work this year. So did Patrick Dempsey. I was surprised and disappointed to see neither get a nom.

    The nominees stink. Grey’s Anatomy, CSI:Miami, what’s wrong with people. These are great shows. Next year the “Michael Jackson” memorial broadcast will probably be nominated. Come on, get with the program. The best shows were ignored and the worst were nominated. UGH!!!!

    Every year it becomes more & more obvious that they don’t base these awards on what viewers like or watch anymore!It’s disappointing that the shows Criminal Minds & In Plain Sight didn’t get anything they are both great shows with outstanding casts!I also think CSI-MIAMI and several of it’s stars like David Caruso,Emily Procter & Adam Rodriguez all deserved noms.At least they got it right with Mariska Hargitay’s nom!!!

    One of the MAJOR snubs was No. 1 Lady’s Detective Agency from HBO, one of the best TV dramas in years. And it’s lead actress Jill Scott. How did politicly correct Hollywood miss this chance to honor a true representation of African life?
