It’s The 2012 Emmy Nominations (Alternate Title: My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding Was ROBBED!)

July 19, 2012 / Posted by:

When the Emmy nominations are announced every year, I already know that my face is going to fall into a puddle of cold disappointment, but only because 80% of the TV stuff I put my eyeballs on is made of one hundred percent shit and the only way they’d get any nominations is if the Emmy hos decided to do things differently by nominating the absolute worst. But this year, there are a few noms I’m happy about. YAAASSS at Zoey from Nurse Jackie! YAAASSS at Jessica Lange from American Horror Story! YAAASSS at Veep! YAAASS at Uma Thurman from Smash! I’m only YAAASSSing at the last one, because Uma was so damn terrible that she was kind of brilliant. Give her all the Emmys.

The list of who I think should file a police report for getting ROBBED is way too long to list. I mean, where’s a nomination for Madeline Stowe’s portrayal of an ice cube with a stick permanently shoved up its ice cold ass on Revenge? Where is the nomination for who ever’s responsible for the high budget production values on Ringer?  Where the hell is RuPaul’s nomination? May every wig fall off of its owner’s head on Emmy night as punishment for telling Ru to sashay away.

But you know, it could be worst. At least the Emmys kept it Kuntrashian-free. That’s always the bright side of any situation that a Kuntrashian hasn’t shoved herself into. The nom list for the main categories is after the jump, but click here if you want to see the full list. JUMP!
