The Emmy nominations were announced this morning, and there were some truly out-of-the-box nominees. Sarah Silverman for Lead Actress in a Comedy for her Comedy Central show? Flight of the Conchords for Comedy Series and Jemaine Clement for Lead Actor? Simon Baker from The Mentalist? And Family Guy for Outstanding Comedy Series? Yeah, these aren't your daddy's Emmys.

-It's great to see Grey's Anatomy missing from the list, and cable is truly dominating with 5/7 nominees. However, no Shield? No Rescue Me? No In Treatment or True Blood? And here's a fun fact about Big Love - this is the show's ONLY nomination. How dumb is that?
-It's shocking to see an animated show in this line-up, and a second HBO show in the form of Flight of the Conchords. Noticeably absent (and thankfully so) is Two and a Half Men, which got replaced with the far superior CBS comedy HIMYM.
