Emmy Noms Inside Scoop

July 2, 2007 by  

Although Emmy nominations won’t be officially announced until July 19th, TheEnvelope.com has a list of shows and some actors that we can expect to be in the running for nominations. This information is coming from actually Emmy judges who were on a panel to help decide the nomination ballots (which means its coming from VERY good sources). For more on how this information came to pass, click here.

Top Ten Finalists for Oustanding Drama Series

Boston Legal (“Angel of Death”)
Dexter (“Born Free”)
Friday Night Lights (Pilot)
Grey’s Anatomy (“From A Whisper to A Scream”)
Heroes (“Genesis”)
House (“Half-wit”)
Lost (“Through the Looking Glass”)
Rome (“De Patre Vostro”)
The Sopranos (“Soprano Home Movies”)
24 (“Day 6: 6 a.m. – 7 a.m.”

Notes: I’m so excited to see that “Friday Night Lights” made the cut, but surprised to see that neither “Brothers & Sisters” or “Rescue Me” were on the list.

Top Ten Finalists for Outstanding Comedy Series

Desperate Housewives (“It Takes Two”)
Entourage (“One Day in the Valley”)
Extras (“Daniel Radcliffe”)
My Name is Earl (“Robbed a Stoner Blind”)
The Office (“The Coup”)
Scrubs (“My Musical”)
Thirty Rock (“Hard Ball”)
Two and a Half Men (“Apologies For the Frivolity”)
Ugly Betty (Pilot)
Weeds (“Cooking with Jesus”)

Notes: More than one judge questioned if “Earl” and “The Office” would even make the cut based on the poorly chosen episodes they submitted. Ugh. Sadly, “How I Met Your Mother” was overlooked again. How can anyone not love Robin Sparkles?

Preliminary finalists for actors after the jump…

Although this list isn’t as comprehensive, here are some of the actors that have supposedly made the Emmy Top 10 finalist list:

Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”
Steve Carell, “The Office”
Charlie Sheen, “Two and a Half Men”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “New Adventures of Old Christine”
America Ferrera, “Ugly Betty”
Teri Hatcher, “Desperate Housewives”
Felicity Huffman, “Desperate Housewives”
Mary-Louise Parker, “Weeds”

James Gandolfini, “Sopranos”
Michael C. Hall, “Dexter”
Eddie Izzard, “The Riches”
Hugh Laurie, “House”
Kiefer Sutherland, “24”

Minni Driver, “The Riches”
Edie Falco, “Sopranos”

Masi Oka, “Heroes”

CCH Pounder, “The Shield”

John Krasinski, “The Office”

    The Coup? Seriously?

  3. sorano916 on July 2nd, 2007 5:41 pm

    I’m not as surprised with “The Coup” than I am with John and “Business School.” ^^;;

  4. mg714 on July 2nd, 2007 5:44 pm

    I’m so excited that FNL made the top 10, as well! I am really hoping it makes it to the actual 5 nominees. As for The Office, I wasn’t too crazy about The Coup, but I still did enjoy it. I do wish they had submitted something like A Benihana Christmas or Traveling Salesmen, though. I do love that J.Kras made the top 10, too!

    I only have a few absolute wishes for the Emmy noms in a couple of weeks – FNL, Kyle Chandler, Connie Britton, The Office, Steve Carell, and Jenna Fischer. I’d love a lot more than these, but if all 6 of those noms happened I would not say a bad thing about the Emmys again (well at least till next year)!

    I hope The Office does get nominated despite people not particularly liking The Coup. I liked it. Its interesting to see John’s name in there. I’m glad about that since I thought he definately should have been nominated last year. I’m surprised they didn’t mention Jenna becuase this is definately her year.

  6. Sam on July 2nd, 2007 5:59 pm

    Don’t worry– The Office will be there. Unlike last year, the panel judging only counts for 50%. The popular vote accounts for the other half. After last year’s win, there really isn’t another show that could have received a higher popular vote. So with that showing, The Coup could actually be ranked in tenth place and the show could feasibly still make it in.

    They made a really dumb decision choosing The Coup. If they had chosen one of at least ten better episode this season, there wouldn’t even be reason to worry.

  7. Meagan on July 2nd, 2007 6:01 pm

    Well, I hope The Office snags a few awards. They deserve them!

  8. Sus on July 2nd, 2007 7:10 pm

    I’m so excited Ugly Betty’s in there! 🙂 And House. And several others. 😉

    I’d like Eric Mabius to get nominated for supporting (even though just about everyone on that show is basically a lead) because while I hated (HAAAATED) his character on The L Word, I heart him to pieces on Ugly Betty.

  9. Carli on July 2nd, 2007 7:33 pm

    I frakking hate the Emmy’s!! Where’s the BSG love?! Not to mention Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton?

  10. HealthcareHottie on July 2nd, 2007 7:40 pm


    Business School was one of John’s finest with the whole vamipre bit. I don’t think it was necessarily THE best, but it did show off his acting talent.

    Submitting The Coup doesn’t even make sense to me. Considering that they are up agains hour long shows (how that is fair is anyone’s guess), they should have submitted Benihana Christmas. Not only is it one of the best and funniest episodes of S3, it really showcases the entire ensemble cast. Everyone had their moment in that episode.

  11. Laura on July 2nd, 2007 7:57 pm

    Well, I for one am VERY excited to see The Office, FNL, Lost, Steve, and J Kras all on here, but I’ve got to chime in with my fellow fans and say I see a huge gap with no Jenna Fischer or Connie Britton. Also, both of my top picks for Best Drama Actor, Matthew Fox and Kyle Chandler, are absent. I sincerely hope these highly deserving actors and actresses get the nod on the 19th.

    Before we all get too upset, make sure you understand what we are looking at. This is a preliminary list of those who are being considered for an Emmy nom. The list is most definitely NOT complete. You think JKras is the only one up in his category? And I promise you Masi Oka and Vanessa Williams will have some competition as well. If you don’t see your favorites listed, it might just be because they can’t be confirmed…yet.

  13. CrazyGringa on July 2nd, 2007 8:25 pm

    Yeah, it’s just wierd to not see Jenna as a given. I went in and read that article that GMMR linked and that voter said hardly anyone laughed when the voters watched The Coup. That makes me :o( I thought it was funny.

  14. LaLa on July 2nd, 2007 10:26 pm

    Seriously, what is up with The Office submitting “The Coup” as their Emmy consideration episode? That is definitely one of the weakest episodes of last season. Where oh where is “Traveling Salesman”?? Or “Benihana Christmas”?? Or a number of other episodes that were far better. Sigh. Let’s hope it doesn’t hurt them this year.

    Glad to see John Krasinski finally being considered – but why isn’t Jenna up there? She should be a given. Seriously, she is by far the best supporting comedic actress out there. And where is Rainn Wilson? Sigh. Stupid Emmys.

  15. heather b on July 2nd, 2007 10:36 pm

    LaLa and others – see comment #12. We shouldn’t freak about Jenna and others not making the cut. This is a small list and not all the finalists have been named yet.

    I’m glad that we agree that “The Coup” was a weird choice. However, I would have liked John to have submitted an episode which he had a more central role than “Business School.” “The Convention” and “The Return” come to mind. To me, “Business School” was more about Michael and Pam than Dwight and Jim. Plus, voters who haven’t seen The Office would probably watch Jim’s and Karen’s “prank” and not be impressed because it’s not a great representative of what Jim’s pranks are; it wasn’t funny, witty, or well-executed. Those are my problem with “Business School,” in terms of showcasing John’s diverse talents, which is why I wished he chose “The Convention” or “The Return.”

    I have one thing to say aboot this particular blog…

    Lets to go the mall….toddaaayy.


  18. Billiam on July 3rd, 2007 7:04 pm

    Who does the actual submitting of episodes? Is it the director, the studio, the network?

    I agree that “The Coup” was a horrible choice (should have been “Branch Closing” or “Cocktails” or “The Intiation” or “Beach Day” or “The Merger” or…).

    I also think that “Genesis” was not a very good choice for Heroes. The pilot was so-so. Personally, (and I’ve seen alot of critics agree with me) I feel that “Company Man” was probably the best episode of any show this season.

    And 30 Rock’s submission should probably have been either “Cleveland” or the Paul Reubens episode.
    I feel, however, that Scrubs chose wisely, but choosing a very different sort of episode that is sure to stand out from the pack.

    I hope Johny C. McGinley ends up on the list for supporting actor, but I know that he won’t.
    And how do you all know that “Business School” was Krasinki’s submission?
