Snappy Judgments: 2009 Emmy Nominations!

EW's Ausiello has made his judgement on this years Emmy nominees:

I'm Super-Ecstatic About:

* Best drama nod for Big Love.

* How I Met Your Mother finally breaks into the best comedy category.

* Jeremy Piven gets snubbed for best supporting actor, clearing the way for Neil Patrick Harris' long overdue win.

* Michael J. Fox up for guest actor for Rescue Me.

* Emmy voters make Howie Mandel pay for ruining last year's Emmys by snubbing him for best reality host. Even better: They gave the slot to Amazing Race emcee Phil Keoghan.

* Jim Parsons!

* Jane Krakowski, Tracy Morgan, and Jack McBrayer among 30 Rock's 172 nominations.

* Aaron Paul breaks through for Breaking Bad.

* Supporting comedy nods for two of my favorite Kristins (Wiig and Chenoweth).

* Elisabeth Moss!

Keep reading to find out which nominations/snubs made me want to hit someone in the face sad.

Yawns to:

* Entourage gets a nod for its worst season yet.

* Tony Shalhoub.

* Anything involving Boston Legal.

I'm Super-Pissed About:

* Nothing for the final season of The Shield or Walton Goggins.

* Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton get the shaft again. Also unacceptable: No Friday Night Lights for best drama.

* Nothing for Chuck or Zachary Levi.

* The Big Bang Theory is a bust in comedy series category. (But woo-hoo Jim Parsons!)

* Jeanne Tripplehorn, Chloe Sevigny, and Ginnifer Goodwin get no love for Big.

* Michael Urie's Ugly snub.

OK, that's my two cents' worth. Now it's your turn. Post your own snappy judgments below.

I am also extremely pissed at FNL getting snubbed again! It made me so angry when I found out.
