Nominees for the 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards

Some new faces, some old, and everyone is going to get creamed by “House” anyway if the Emmy voters know what they’re doing, but of course they don’t, so the “Sopranos” and its lackluster final season will clean house. (Pun intended.) Ain’t it always the way? Emmy voters are full of actors who WISHES they could be on a given show, so when that show says goodbye, they get all nostalgic and send it away full of hardware. Anyways, that’s my prediction. Here are the nominations for the 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards (aka the 2007 Emmy Awards). Is your favorite in? Out? And why do people keep nominating that Godforsaken Charlie Sheen show? Really, that is one major piece of crap.
