GUEST ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES: Edward Asner "CSI: NY", Ernest Borgnine "ER", Ted Danson "Damages", Michael J. Fox "Rescue Me", Jimmy Smits, "Dexter"
  • REACTION: It's like a list of Who's Who. Great list, no real suprises.
  • SNUBS: Charles Durning "Rescue Me", Charles S. Dutton "CSI: NY", Patrick Fishler "Mad Men", Colin Hanks "Mad Men", Christopher Lloyd "Law & Order: CI", Robert Morse "Mad Men", Jon Voight "24"
  • WINNER: The Jimmy Smits storyline was key for Drama Series nominee Dexter, the Emmy winner strikes again.

GUEST ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES: Brenda Blethyn "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", Carol Burnett "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", Ellen Burstyn "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit", Sharon Lawrence "Grey's Anatomy", CCH Pounder "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency"

  • REACTION: Legend, after Legend. Great to see Sharon Lawerence, but shocked not to see Tyne Daly. Even though The Shield got the shaft, CCH Pounder managed a well deserved nod.
  • SNUBS: Tyne Daly "Grey's Anatomy", Sharon Gless "Nip/Tuck", Mary McDonnell "Grey's Anatomy", Melinda McGraw "Mad Men", Susan Sarandon "ER", Lois Smith "True Blood", Sigourney Weaver "Eli Stone"
