Outstanding Comedy

The Office
30 Rock
Two and a Half Men
Ugly Betty

The Sopranos got 15 nominations in its last season (finally is over!) and the freshman Ugly Betty became the “Cinderella” of the Emmys with 11 nominations, if you have not watched this series you should as is crazy unbelievable good!! Salma Hayek (she’s Ugly Betty producer) also got a nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Worth mentioning is that Elizabeth Reaser also got a nomination for her appearance in Grey’s Anatomy (I liked her performance here, at least more that in Puccini for Beginners).

Also Ellen Degeneres has a nomination for hosting the 79th Annual Academy Awards, even if I am happy she got it, I don’t think she was at her best in that show.

Last but not least, I am going to go public with my total addiction to Grey’s Anatomy!!! Yes I still LOVE this show, which has one of the best actress ensembles ever on TV and well, in movies too.

There are lots of great actresses in TV nowadays and these nominations proves that TV has A-list actresses as some are Academy Award winners and/or had nominations.
