Emmy Nominations Announced

Emmy_award After all of those Emmy nominee "short lists" were released last month, the official Emmy nominations were announced this morning by Kristin Chenoweth and Neil Patrick Harris -- both of whom, coincidentally, were nominated as supporting actors for their roles in Pushing Daisies and How I Met Your Mother, respectively.

I watched the announcements live, and the two were so cute standing at that podium together that someone should write a new musical just for them (Both joked that they would try out for Emmy-nominated reality competitions Dancing with the Stars and American Idol, so that's a start).

This year, the Emmys introduced a new category -- "Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program." Most of the other choices seemed pretty safe, though, evidenced most strongly by the lack of nominations for HBO's The Wire.
