Stellar nominees, but why so mean and loop the dramas and comedies in one, preventing nods for people like Enos, Panjabi, and Best? Great slate, though - even if I've never mustered up significant appreciation for Friday Night Lights.

Love the AHS mentions. Straight to the point and perfect all over.
