TV Guide’s Dream Emmy Ballot

TV Guide’s 5th Annual Dream Emmy Ballot is the TVG staff’s Emmy wish list. Since I’m a TVG magazine subscriber, I got my issue ahead of the official announcement (which I think is Thursday).

The Office received two nods:

  • Lead Comedy Actor: Steve Carell (“the height of arrogance … undeniably brilliant”)
  • Supporting Comedy Actor: John Krasinski (“The Office’s secret weapon”)

Yay Steve and John!

But, uh, where is our nomination for Best Comedy?! The nominees that were chosen: Arrested Development, Entourage, Everybody Hates Chris, My Name is Earl, and Scrubs.

We was robbed!

Okay. Must. Calm. Down. This isn’t real, after all!

Update:

Okay, in the online version of the dream ballot, Michael Ausiello says:

… the arrivals of Earl and Chris (not to mention the emergence of The Office, which would have been our sixth nominee) boded uproariously well for the future of the genre.

I feel a little better now.
