No nominations for 'The Walking Dead'? That was the best show I've seen in years. I'm tired of seeing the same people and shows nominated every year.

What?!! No "Best Drama" nomination for Justified?
Friday Night Lights?! Game of Thrones?! Give me a break. Justified deserves Best Drama and all cast members nominated should win in their respective categories. It's so hard to get series with originality and complexity these days. Justified and Dexter are neck-in-neck in my book; but I have to give the newer series a small lead.

Bill Mayer??? Nominated for best "COMEDY"??? Have you seen his sour puss show?? Comedy is not the word I would use. Where is Craig Ferguson??? He does more with his little pinky than all the other nominees combined. And the MOST GREIVACE OMITTION goes to Spartacus: Arena of the Gods.That and SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND are best shows EVER produced fot TV. At least that put in JUSTIFIED AND FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.

Seriously it's the same people all the time. What happen to Harry's Law, Rookie Blue, NCIS etc. there are other shows out there that never get any reconized. Think I will pass this year it seems like a repeat from last year's show.

They nominated Game of Thrones and not The Borgias? Outrageous. I'm especially flabbergasted that they didn't nominate Jeremy Irons for The Borgias. His work was outstanding.

I agree there are a lot of good shows that never get nominated!!! I don'*****ch half of these shows. I love that Game of Thrones was nominated it was amazing!! Love me some Big Bang Theory but Kaley Cuoco should be getting a nomination... and where's How I Met Your Mother or Criminal Minds. There should be a Sci-fi category for shows like Supernatural, Smallville, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, etc... The critics need to broaden their horizons when it comes to TV!!

I think that since most everyone has a DVR, we the fans should be able to have a vote on what is really watched on tv, if we could vote through our DVR somehow, cause the voting system seems to be only what the Executives want, our opinions don't seem to matter!! The Nielsons rating system that are in select homes for family's to vote with is out dated an it needs to be changed!!!! it can't be that difficult to do!! There are alot of very good shows that are not even recognized, an then there cancelled w/only a "oh the ratings are not good enough" well some of the shows would make it if they would only listen to us the fans! What a concept that would be, lol !!!!! Well maybe one day, ya think??
