  1. Congratulations to all and also a nod to Office guest Timothy Olyphant for his nomination for Justified!

  2. Congrats to everyone! Steve was absolutely fantastic this year. If he doesn’t win, I will burn Utica to the ground.

  3. The supporting cast deserves some nods! SERIOUSLY. But I doubt any of you would disagree. :)

  4. If Steve Carell doesn’t win for Best Actor for his last year as Michael Scott, I will burn Utica to the ground.

  5. Awesome. Good nominations this year. Good luck to all Office noms. And good luck to Timothy Olyphant and Kathy Bates as well.

  6. Kathy Bates was also nominated for best actress in a drama series – Harry’s Law :)

  7. Steve’s emmy is long overdue. His performances in his last episodes were outstanding, and his acting in “Goodbye, Michael” was ‘superlative’, one might say. He really does deserve this.

  8. I don’t want to take anything from the other Office nominees, but if there could only be 1 out of the 4 to win, I want Steve to win – it’s really unbelievable he hasn’t won one yet. *fingers & toes crossed*

    And if he wins, here’s hoping Ricky Gervais, Stephen Colbert & Jon Stewart are involved :)

  9. Congrats to them, but I’m not too excited about those noms. I’m sick of the supporting cast constantly being snubbed. Other cast members really deserved a nomination.

  10. The only reason I’m gonna tune in to the ceremony is to see the phenomenal Steve Carell finally get his Emmy.

  11. If Steve doesn’t win,I think i’ll just lose it and cry.
    It would be a REALLY unfair, bitter and sad ending for Michael Scott as a character.
    They’d better not screw it up!

  12. The person who deserves an emmy the most is Greg Daniels. Goodbye Michael was the most well written episode in not only Office history but t.v history in my opinion!
