I'm really glad Ann-Margret got nominated because she was positively nutty in her role!

I love Mariska Hargitay but she did not deserve an emmy nod this year. SVU went from a mix of good and bad last year to continuous, flat out soap opera with consistently bad stories this year - I actually stopped watching.

Mariska is great and everything but I want to see Julianna Margulies win tbh.

Errr.... where is Epatha's nomination? I can't believe she was left off the list. I don't watch all the shows for the best supporting actress (where I assume her nomination would have been) but I can't believe all those actresses did a better job than Epatha. Very disappointing.

As for Mariska, I agree with anonymous. As much as I like her, this just wasn't an award-winning season. I do watch most of the shows associated with the best actress nominees, and sorry to say, I don't see Mariska in the same class this year. It's not all her fault, of course. The show has been saddled with lousy writing and plots this season.

Sadly I agree I love Mariska but I think she should'nt have gotten a emmy nod and I wish Jill Scott and Epatha would have gotten a nod.

Where is the Epatha nomination?!

This is outrageous!

Jojo said...

Is there a particular episode that NBC submits for Mariska? If so, does anybody know which one it was?

I wouldn't say she necessarily doesn't deserve it, because while the show and storylines are questionable, she is always convincing in her role. But really, the Emmy's always seem to have a set of favourites that keep getting nominated and I'm guessing Mariska is one of them.

CSI never really gets a look-in at the Globes or the Emmys, and it is one of the most watched shows in the world.

Epatha would be in the supporting category? I always assumed she was considered one of the leads.

CSI did get nominations...for technical behind the scenes work..several I think.Im not a fan of it, but in Europe it gets decribed as "the most watched TVshow on the planet,with CSI Miami as 2nd most watched on the planet". They seem to travel well in original form and DVDs dominate the shelves.

LOCI is most watched of the Wolf franchise here...on satellite.

Jojo said...

Sorry, I forgot to specify that I meant the acting awards. You're right though, they do get nominations for the behind the scenes work like sound or cinematography, but even those haven't come around for a couple of years.

I did read an article about CSI being the most watched show because it does well in USA and very well on an international scale. Not sure about CSI Miami, I can't stand that show ;) I'm getting quite off topic, though.

SVU is definitely the highest rated L&O in Australia.

I wonder how well LOLA will travel ?

I think they are confusing things. What is being tried is the actor and not the series. Hargitay as Olivia Benson is fantastic. PC in the episode, its intervention in the last minutes of the episode since it would be worth an Emmy. She was nominated by Perverted.
