No way Best Dance Crew is better than Survivor or TAR. No way!

I really hope Generation Kill gets some series love.

Charlie Day wins everything. Including a date with me, if his wife will let him.

I think it's about time that Animal Cops wins something.

Liz said...

Any time we can get RuPaul involved I say do it!

To see "It's Not Sunny In Philadelphia" win anything would be beyond cool.

Gah! Do the voters even watch TV anymore? Or just recycle their lists/votes year after year?

At least Flight of the Conchords landed a well deserved nomination.
