The Emmy Awards for 2010 had expected winners, some surprises and a notable gaffe in the In Memoriam segment of the series.

Jewel's song was the backdrop for the In Memoriam, written for a lost friend.  Major oversight for not adding David Mills, a writer and producer for 'The Wire' and 'Treme' who died earlier this year, to the list.  Mills even had written "Kingpin" for NBC.

The Twitter idea fell flat for Fallon, who otherwise shined and did a terrific job managing a wide variety of song and commentary.

Happy for Temple Grandin, one of M&C's favorite TV film efforts last year.

Hardest pill to swallow; seeing "The Closer' Kyra Sedgwick take the Best Actress in Drama award, when it should have been Katey Sagal for her poignant turn as Gemma Teller Morrow on FX drama, 'Sons of Anarchy.'

Also, not seeing "Friday Night Lights" get any due was tough.

Would someone please explain to us why Showtime's excellent "Nurse Jackie" is classified as a comedy?
