    Maybe i'm biased because i've loved the show since it started but i really think Sandra Oh (christina yang) from Grey's Anatomy deserved a nomination

    Glee was a whole lot of awful this season, but I firmly believe Naya Rivera (Santana) should have been AT LEAST nominated… There are a few names in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy that, well, shouldn't be. I don't want to start diss though…

    Pretty sure Glee wasn't nominated for a reason….

    True Blood sucked gigantic dick last season.
    Glee was one bad After School Special after another. The only reason I watch the show now is to see the kids from the Glee Project and they've only seemed to actually write material that's worth a damn for one of the winners.

    Can't believe Community got only one nomination. What the actual fuck…

    whomp-whomp, Glee. Of course you got snubbed. The show is no longer "relevant." The stories are almost as annoying as the characters, and viewers are tuning out. Time to pull the plug on this disaster.

    Didn't follow last season of true blood, so I can't say if I agree with you or not, but glee was absolutely bad this season: to rushed storylines and honestly it was like a big series of public awareness topics. I don't even know why Dot-Jones is nominated and I adore her.

    Re: mswilde

    Btw, mswilde, while I like Naya, I honestly think that they messed up her character. People tend to forget that in the first season, she was a maneater and them BAM…she is suddenly a lesbian because the fans were all giddy with that Brittany comment in episode 13. And before you say: "oh, those guys were her beards", when Puck dated Mercedes for like an episode, she was truely jealous.
    At least they could have put her as bissexual, like they did with Brittany, but ignoring storyline is just stupid.
    Besides, while her coming out story was moving, something like this already happened in Glee with Kurt telling his dad, the only difference is that he got a better reaction.

    glee has been changing… they are doing shit and talking about shit JUST for the sake of doing it, of being one of those programs that just deals with SO many issues but at the expense of good writing and coherent story lines.
    true blood… is not as good as it used to be. Still an amazingly well ACTED show but the writing is all over the place. I think maybe Anna deserved a best actress nod but no one else… i'm sure they got tech award nominations. They were nominated so much season 1 but the show has taken a nosedive since then :[

    Nothing new here, they rarely ever get it right. Total joke that they nominated all four guys from Modern Family again. Worst offense I would say is Veep being in there over Community, that show was horrendous (and really just painful to watch) and Community is better then all of the other nominees put together.
