Angels receives record breaking 21 Emmy noms

Angels In America garnered 21 nomination including:

Best casting for a mini-series (you’re damned right!)
Best Director (Mike Nichols)
Outstanding lead actor (Al Pacino)
Outstanding lead actress (Emma Thompson)
Best supporting actress (Mary-Louise Parker)
Outstanding supporting actor (Patrick Wilson)
Outstanding mini-series
Best writing (Tony Kushner)

Alias garnered 8 nominations including:
Best actress (Jennifer Garner)
Best supporting actor (Victor Garber)

Who else is sickened by the fact that there are now two reality television categories. Outstanding reality program and Outstanding reality-competition program. Most people called those gameshows. Ed McMahon should be screaming for his duly awarded emmy’s for starsearch in the 80s.

Angels broke the record previously held by Band of Brothers who received 19 nominations. Woo Hoo!

"ABC announced Tuesday (May 18) that the fourth season of its cult-hit spy series is being held back until midseason as a way to solve the on-this-week, off-the-next-two-weeks scheduling that has plagued the show."

so, yeah, way before 4th season starts IN JANUARY.

Those bastards! Why don't they just make more episodes so that problem doesn't happen. Morons.

They can't make more episodes becuase they have to give the actors downtime so that they can do other projects like making such blockbuster films as "13 Going on 30." E! or VH1 should make a show called "When bad scripts happen to good people."
