Conan hosting was probably the only good thing about the Emmys this year. The new and controversial voting system that spit out strange nominations and snubbed the big hitters like LOST just screwed things up. What made it disappointing for me wasn’t so much the show but rather the fact that the West Wing won only one award, for Alan Alda. Martin Sheen was snubbed and so was Allison Janney. So suffice to say I’m very pissed at that. Sheen was nominated six times! Six times since 1999 and not a single win for the portrayal of one of the greatest television characters of all time. You’d think they’d throw the man a bone here.
So I’m not watching the Emmys anymore, especially since the West Wing won’t be nominated anymore.
