Emmys: Oddities and observations

Housemorse1_2Now that I’ve had some time to think about it, I’d say this year’s crop of Emmy nominees fall into a few broad categories.

IT’S ABOUT TIME:

David Morse. Morse (pictured left) broke your heart every week during the 1982-1988 run of NBC’s “St. Elsewhere.” But was he nominated? Nooooo. It took a guest shot role on another hospital drama, Fox’s “House,” to win this underrated actor some Emmy appreciation.

Dwight_3 Rainn Wilson. How could he have been overlooked last year? Just the sight of  him in his Dwight Schrute persona (pictured right) makes me laugh.

Mary-Louise Parker. Emmy voters felt so bad for snubbing her last year for “Weeds” that they gave her two noms, this year, one for “Weeds,” one for the Oxygen movie “The Robber Bride.”

This category can also encompass the new names and faces Emmy voters let into the tent this year, including “30 Rock”; Ugly Betty and America Ferrera; “Heroes” and Masi Oka; Neil Patrick Harris of “How I Met Your Mother.”
