The Problem with Awards Shows


I watch a lot of TV. A lot more than I should, probably. But when you have a satellite dish, and a DVR, you'd be doing the same. I mention this only to point out that whoever picks shows for Emmy nominations is a stark-ravin' moron. Because today, it was announced that the following shows were nominated for Best Drama...

Damages.
Mad Men.
Boston Legal.
Dexter.
House.
Lost.

Now, I'm down with Dexter and Lost. F'sho. But what's wrong with this picture? I'll tell you what's wrong with that picture. The fact that "The Wire" only got a nod for best writing. Which it had (and you can see on full display over the next six installments of "Generation Kill" on HBO). But if you ask me ... go ahead, ask ... ok, thanks for asking ... Lost is the only drama that enters the conversation. For shame, Emmy nominating people, sheeeeeeeeeeeet.
