Williams is up for Supporting Actress in a comedy for Ugly Betty.
Dillon is gettingÃ‚Â his for nomination for Entourage.
Tucci is getting some love for his guest turn on Monk.
And Daly is likewise being nominated for his guest-starring stint on The Sopranos (which, by the way, led the pack with 15 nods in all).
Great news for these amazing Lohud stars but,Ã‚Â once again, the Emmy voters seem unwilling to recognize outstanding shows without blockbuster ratings.
Where are the deserved nominations for The Wire? The critical darling has one of the most incredible ensembles and produces consistently solid TV (really, it’s more than TV, it’s event programming that tells us something about where we are as a country).
Ditto for the ensemble cast of Deadwood.
And where’s the love for Battlestar Galactica’s Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnellÃ¢â‚¬â€œtwo of television’s finest actors doing some of their best work ever?
Instead we get Kiefer Sutherland’s 20th nomination for what has become a depressingly tired, and critically stale character (“Damn it, we’re out of time”).
Full list of nominations is here.
