And in my heart, Boston Legal is nominated in the comedy category (it seems funny to me in the occasional scene I catch). James Spader, William Shatner, and the show itself, if worthy, get the slots currently taken up by, say, Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer, and Two and a Half Men. Spader’s Lead Actor in a Drama slot goes to Kyle Chandler, and Matthew Fox gets shoehorned into that group somehow too. The open Best Drama place goes to Battlestar Galactica, with the open Supporting Actor spot going to pretty much any Battlestar Galactica actor, even if they are leads (because, hey, it works for Jon Cryer in the comedy category). Perhaps Jamie Bamber, Michael Hogan, Edward James Olmos or James Callis? Just some starter suggestions; maybe Emmy will listen in time for next year.
And in the meantime, to which nominations do you give your hearty thumbs-up?
