Home Television Emmy Nominations: Jon Cryer, Matt LeBlanc, Gywneth, Mad Men, Modern Family

The Emmy nominations are in, and Jon Cryer has his for “Two and a Half Men.” That’s it for that series, with no Charlie Sheen or the series. It’s no surprise. Matt LeBlanc, whose career you might have thought was over, was nominated for playing himself on “Episodes” for Showtime, There are boat loads for “Mad Men,” “Boardwalk Empire,” and “Modern Family,” of course. And some interesting choices. Robert Morse from “Mad Men,” who’s a series regular, got nominated as a guest actor from that show. Meanwhile, the actresses who played Miss Blankenship (Randee Heller) and Dr. Faye (Cara Buono) also got nominated as guests.

In what seems like a first, maybe, since the early days of “Saturday Night Live,” Kristen Wiig got a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a comedy for her work on that show. She should win, hands down. Missing from all the actress noms: Sally Field and Rachel Griffiths, for “Brothers and Sisters,” and Amy Ryan or Jenna Fischer from “The Office.” Indeed, “The Office” cast, other than Steve Carell, got dissed. All the supporting actor noms for comedy, besides Cryer, went to “Modern Family.” It’s hard to imagine, but even James Spader was snubbed for his guest spot on “The Office”–his consolation is that he was hired for the series.

I do think it’s funny that at the end of the massive list of Byzantine nominations–reality show cinematography, prosthetics, use of interactives–is when the writing nominations are finally listed. That’s Hollywood. Two “Mad Men” episodes were nominated– “The Suitcase” and “Blowing Smoke”–“The Suitcase” will win. And in comedy only one from “The Office,” the episode in which Michael leaves. Totally missed was the episode in which Michael proposes to Holly, which should have been nominated and won. Oh well. You can’t have everything.

  1. Some pretty good choices this year, but as always folks are missing you personally would have nominated. As far as James Spader being snubbed for his terrific guest appearance on The Office…he wasn’t; the show didn’t place his name in contention for a nomination so there was no way he could be considered.
