‘Studio 60’ down, but not out

Sorkin drama scores five Emmy nominations

Viewers may have rejected “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” but Emmy voters showed a soft spot for Aaron Sorkin’s showbiz skein.

NBC drama managed to score five noms, the same number as big hits such as “CSI”–and more than the tallies for some frosh skeins that will be back for second seasons, including “Brothers & Sisters,” “Dexter” and “The Tudors.”

While the noms might be a bit of a consolation for Sorkin, voters’ love had some limits.

“Studio 60” didn’t land any noms in the writing category, and it’s A-list cast of regulars was overlooked. (Matthew Perry notched a nom, but it was for his work in the TNT telepic “The Ron Clark Story”).

Skein’s guest cast fared better: John Goodman and Eli Wallach both landed noms in the guest actor category. And helmer/exec producer Thomas Schlamme was nommed for the “Studio 60” pilot.

Other two noms were for cinematography and casting.
