August 21, 2010 |  3:12 pm

Were the Emmy people drunk when they chose '24' music over 'LOST'?!?!

LOST has had the best musical score on TV in HISTORY!
They better not hand over best supporting actor award to anyone besides Micheal Emerson or O'Terry.

I am just ASTOUNDED that 24 (a score that is writhed with old and tired music tropes and repetition) won BEST SCORE over some of the best music ever produced for ANY medium? I was lucky enough to see Giachinno perform the Lost score at Lost Live this year, and it was one of the most moving performances I've ever witnessed. I can't believe a man that is so great at pulling the heart strings was beat by such a lazy score that sounds like it was written for a video game. This is just lunacy. Screw you, Emmys.

Who won Outstanding Art Direction for a Multi-Camera Series?

Congrats to the writers @ The Colbert Report! Here's hoping TCR takes home best variety during the Big Show next weekend!

Don't you use spellcheck! Who typed this list? Best "cinematrophy" for a half hour series (Weeds) instead of cinematography? The winner deserves to have the category spelled correctly!

I love NPH, but Mike O'Malley for sure deserved the guest actor award.

What happened to true blood?

"Lost" losing to "24" for music score is maddness. Who even notices the music on "24"? "Lost" is the best television score ever, hands down.

Is this the first time "30 Rock" has been shut out of the Creative Emmys since it started? ..Interesting.

Mr Oneill--while you were able to do a factual job on this piece, the reprehensible article you did on Ernest Borgnine's Sag Lifetime Achievement Award is shameful. You owe Mr. Borgnine and your readers an apology

Well done 24, Sean Callery is a god, top score.

Did CSI beat Breaking Bad for Cinematography? Darn, I guess they really don't have any change of winning best drama. sad face,

YES! NPH finally wins an Emmy. He's gonna have tough competition in best supporting actor in a comedy, though.

Congrats to Betty WHite and Mia Michaels!

kathy griffin was robbed!!!!

Current mood: Bummed:( Elizabeth Mitchell should have won

Lost should have won for best score. The music, especially in the finale was fantastic.

Anybody know who won the two juried awards (Individual Achievement in Animation, and Costumes for a Variety Program)? These were handed out tonight, but presumably announced earlier (although neither nor has them listed)

I think you guys are missing...

Hairstyling for Single-Camera: Mad Men
Sound Editing for Series

or maybe my eyes are failing me.

Soooooooooo happy for Ann-Margret!!!
5th time's a charm.

And a standing ovation to boot.

The emmy voters must be on crack to give 24 best score over Lost.

So sad Elizabeth Mitchell didn't take home the Emmy.

Sean Callery is a legend! Thank god 24 won best music score and not some show like lost

When's writing for comedy/variety show meant to be announced? Hoping for a win for the Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien.

I know it's not gonna happen but I'mactually hoping for Liz to win!!

Congratulations Wendy Melvoin & Lsa Coleman for winning Best Main Title Theme Music: "Nurse Jackie"! Can't think of two more deserving people.
