Drama Actor and Actress...
Here are the nominees for Lead Actress and Actor in a Drama Series...
Patricia Arquette, "Medium"
Minnie Driver, "The Riches"
Edie Falco, "The Sopranos"
Sally Field, "Brothers & Sisters"
Mariska Hargitay, "Law & Order: SVU"
Kyra Sedgwick, "The Closer"
James Gandolfini, "The Sopranos"
Hugh Laurie, "House"
Denis Leary, "Rescue Me"
James Spader, "Boston Legal"
Kiefer Sutherland, "24"
In the actress category, I'm thrilled for Minnie Driver, who is extremely deserving of this one, while Patricia Arquette is a bit of a surprise.
James Spader sneaking into the Actor category just confirms for me that "BL" submitted some pretty strong episodes. But considering how weak this season was, I can't wait to find out what those were...
And THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to the Academy for not punishing Kiefer Sutherland for the mistakes of his writers...
