    If Jon Cryer wins another Emmy this year I might throw my TV set through the window, especially with three from Modern Family nominated.

    Breaking Bad should roll all of the drama categories. Cranston and Paul both deserve their Emmys.

    Best Supporting Actor Comedy is the gayest category ever. I can see Modern Family getting hosed when the awards are handed out because everyone on that show is so good it is hard to figure out which one is better.
    Matthew Morrison of Glee has no chance in the lead comedy division - I realize its his character, but I'm trying to think of the funniest line or thing that guy got to do this season.
    Nice to see FNL get some noms - but where the hell was Justified?

    Zach Gilford deserved a nod in the best supporting actor category for his role as Matt Saracen on "Friday Night Lights". I know there are some heavyweights in that category, especially for the more popular "Lost" guys as well as Slattery for "Mad Men" (also well deserved), but the best hour of television I saw this year was the ep when Matt dealt with his dad's death.

    Happy for the Modern Family folks, but Ed O'Neill got snubbed too.

    Katey Sagal got robbed. She deserved to be nominated for her role as Gemma in "Sons of Anarchy."

    No Piven is good.

    Would have liked to see some love for Community -- Brie, McHale, etc.

    Both Al and Peg Bundy are shut out. Not sure how both Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson got nominated for Modern Family.

    It was a non-starter, but Better of Ted and Portia de Rossi would have been great choices.

    Too much Glee and too much Two and a Half Men.

    Tony Shalhoub again? It seems like that show ended in 2006. I'm surprised James Spader didn't get nominated.

    Bowen surprised me, Jesse Tyler Ferguson did not.

    Why -- both Stonestreet and Burrell have the meatier roles. Three nominations for the same show in a category is pretty rare, especially in a pretty stacked category.

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson is awesome in his role. Understated and hilarious. All three of those actors from Modern Family deserve the nods. And, yes, Ed O'Neill got the shaft.

    Burrell should win, but I was very pleased to see the three of them nominated.

    Jon Cryer sucks. How he won last year and how he was ever nominated is beyond me.

    I like Tony Shalhoub, but enough already.

    Wasn't Jim Parsons in the supporting actor category last year?

    The more I see of Bowen - the more I respect her work on MF. While the other characters get more showy stuff to do - she shines with just a facial reaction.
