Emmy "Drama": YES!!!


Not only did Kiefer Sutherland get an Emmy nomination, but he has a good chance of winning, if he can avoid all of the spoilers!

Both the lead acting drama categories had SEVERAL surprises…

Lead Actress:
Frances Conroy, “Six Feet Under”
Geena Davis, “Commander In Chief”
Mariska Hargitay, “Law & Order: SVU”
Allison Janney, “The West Wing”
Kyra Sedgwick, “The Closer”
Note that the overwhelming favorite, Edie Falco (“The Sopranos”), is missing, as well as last year’s winner, Patricia Arquette (“Medium”).

Lead Actor:
Peter Krause, “Six Feet Under”
Denis Leary, “Rescue Me”
Christopher Meloni, “Law & Order: SVU”
Martin Sheen, “The West Wing”
Kiefer Sutherland, “24”
Note that the favorites, Hugh Laurie (“House”) and James Gandolfini (“The Sopranos”) are missing, as well as two-time winner James Spader (“Boston Legal”).

Maybe this new system worked after all.

As far as the Drama series category goes, it also produced a big surprise as “Lost” was not nominated, but "24" did make the cut!

Drama Series:
“Grey’s Anatomy”
“The Sopranos”
“The West Wing”
Thankfully, “Six Feet Under” was excluded, but I think you can pretty much just hand the Emmy to “The West Wing.” Obviously, Emmy is feeling nostalgic this year.

I’ll have details on the comedy categories, coming up.

Stay tuned…
