It's that time of year again, the bitch and moan edition of who got left out of the Emmy award lists for 2012.
Let's start with:
Shameless on Showtime
Emmy Rossum, Jeremy Allen White, William Macy and Emma Kenney were phenomenal. At least Joan Cusack was recognized for her brilliance in this dirty gem of a dysfunctional family hanging on in the wrong side of the Chicago tracks.
Here's a great montage:
Justified on FX
What in the Apple Pie Hog wallowing hell is wrong with Emmy voters? Walt Goggins and Joelle Carter were electric this past season. Just balls-out great scenes with the two of them. This is a gorgeous hot mess of southern Gothic good vs evil that grabs you and won't let go.
Watch this nice montage of their characters:
Sons of Anarchy on FX
Will someone please explain to me why the top FX series gets zero love from the Emmy voters? Too busy gushing over the cringeworthy Girls on HBO to lift heads up to the finest ensemble cast for a gritty drama next to Justified. Katey Sagal, Kim Coates, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman, Ryan Hurst and Theo Rossi delivered the goods in a big way this last season. Danny Trejo and David Hasselhoff were terrific as guest stars. For shame.
Wilfred on FX
Brillant comedies come around rarely. This is one of them.
Elijah Wood and Jason Gann have created a most wonderful absurd comedy that features the exceptional work of guest stars like Oscar-winning Mary Steenburgen cast as Catherine, the mother of Ryan (Wood). Ryan is a struggling guy who forms a unique relationship with his neighbor’s dog: He sees him as a man in a dog suit. Chris Klein, Ed Helms, Rashida Jones, and Jane Kaczmarek also did great work in the series
