2010 Emmy Awards Nominations

Wow, several surprises this year! Some quick thoughts:

- I'm sad The Big Bang Theory and even How I Met Your Mother were not nominated
- Cheers for the surprise but well deserved nominations for Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton from Friday Night Lights
-Surprised to see no Grey's Anatomy actress were nominated this year!
-A lot of love for Glee and Modern Family. I'm glad especially for Modern Family's domination in the supporting categories (I feel bad for Ed O'Neil but to be honest Jesse deserved the nod too)
- I'm disappointed Survivor is snubbed again. With that, The Amazing Race for 8th straight win! :D
- Pleasantly surprised with True Blood's nomination
