Emmys Finalists!

Whee! The lists of top ten finalists for comedy and drama have officially been released. Er, the shows, not the individual actors. God, I love this stuff. A few "Huh?" names, but overall I can't complain.

Here are the lists:

DRAMA: Boston Legal, Damages, Dexter, Friday Night Lights, Grey's Anatomy, House, Lost, Mad Men, The Tudors, The Wire.

COMEDY: Curb Your Enthusiasm, Entourage, Family Guy, Flight of the Conchords, The Office, Pushing Daisies, 30 Rock, Two and a Half Men, Ugly Betty, Weeds.

I never expected BSG for drama, so I'm not upset. I've always thought Grey's was overrated, Boston Legal just makes me roll my eyes, and The Tudors is too darn soapy (albeit with gorgeous production values that the Emmys folks love.) The others, though, are fine by me. Besides, we all know Mad Men is going to win. ;)

As for comedies... CONCHORDS! One acting predictions list had Jemaine as "probable" and Bret as "possible", but I don't see how you can even separate the two. I'm also happy for 30 Rock and Pushing Daisies, of course, and The Office is great but wasn't quite as good this year. The others? Meh.


Poll time: If you were a member of ATAS, which FIVE (or fewer) shows would you choose?
