For Your Consideration
Turn off that reality show and that Regis What's-His-Name, won't you? The 52nd Annual Emmy Award nominations are out! Yippee! All right, fine.
So the Emmy nominations appeared with few surprises and several eye-rolling repeat nominations. Although the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (which hosts the Emmys) revamped the selection process, the nomination process remained the same, begetting the same old, same old. This is why I created the Clare Awards last year. Named for St. Clare, the Patron Saint of Television, the Clare Awards intend to recognize, however symbolically, programming and performances deserving of attention, but ignored by the Academy. So here, for your consideration, are the Emmy nominations along with additional nominees and Clare's Choice.
Next week: the comedies and other Emmy nominations.
