  1. I hope christina hendricks /mad men can come through with the goods and win!

  2. I agree....I think she is fantastic, and has not gotten the credit she deserves

  3. Apparently no love for NCIS?

  4. I acutally really like NCIS, the problem is that the Emmys don't really like NCIS. You know how they pick their favorite shows and run with them. Furthermore, they have a problem with the highest rated shows (NCIS, CSI, Greys, AI, etc.). I agree though that it would be nice for Mark Harmon to finally get some attention.
