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!
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.
