August 21, 2010 |  3:12 pm

Mike O'Malley was better choice than NPH on glee,


im waiting for the best guest actress in a drama- go Lilly Tomlin!!

I am so proud that my son Dean won for best main titile design for Bored to Death.

Whoever is posting the results should read the Emmy rules a little more carefully; the two categories listed as "ties" are "areas", where you can have more than one winner without there being an actual tie in the voting.

Who won art direction for a multi-camera series?

Shocked about Nurse Jackie winning best theme. And not in a good way...

Booo...on TItle Theme Music! :-( 'Justified' should have gotten that one!!

I think Hairstyling was accidentally deleted from the list when it was updated?
Winners were MAD MEN and DANCING WITH THE STARS (Mary Guerro was a hairstylist on both!)

Anne Hathaway won an Emmy! I always figured she would win an Oscar first. I'm a big fan of both Glee and Modern Family, I hope they both win many awards :) and yay for Betty as well!

Lost got beat by 24 for musical score???????????? Is that a joke????

Seriously, Tom, did you have to put in that aside about Jane Lynch being a "losing nominee"? I noticed the other categories didn't note the losing nominee who presented.

Both "Modern Family" and "Glee" were true joys this TV season, and I hope we see more creative shows (one very funny, one creative and uplifting) like them on TV in the upcoming years... So as long as one of those two shows wins against some of the otherwise-tired seeming competition

@Stacey, Thx. My friend is up for the Emmy on that that's why I really want to know! :-D

Thanks for the extremely speedy updates, Tom!

I honestly don't think modern family deserves best comedy. While I agree the casting was excellent and a deserved win, I find myself losing interest in it a lot. While Glee had its bad moments, I still looked forward to it every week, with some episodes, (especially the pilot), being some of the best television I've seen from a comedy show in a long while.

That saying, I wouldn't mind if either wins, a lot of categories this year are fascinating because they all seem so close.

I'm surprised Betty White wasn't there as well. She was pretty much a shoe in for the award.

Lost had tremendous Picture Editing. Kudos to them!

@Dulce-it doesn't look like they are doing these in any sort of order. They anoced Betty White and not any of the other guest acting. Although, they are probaly spreading them out since it's the "biggest" award they give out.

They announced most of the music categories, but they missed Best Original Main Theme??? Did they not announce it yet, or did you just miss posting it??

@stacy: EXACTLY my thoughts!

I'm suprised Betty White wasn't there.

I'm very happy Modern Family beat Glee in casting, hopefully this means that it will take best comedy.
