Question: Hate to be a buzzkill, but your Dream Emmy Ballot has Gilmore Girls listed as a comedy when even its own website says it's a drama! Does the person who made the list actually watch TV? Amy H.
Ausiello: Simmer yourself, Amy; that wasn't a flub. Despite subtle protests from WB execs and a certain unnamed cast member, Amy Sherman-Palladino made the bold decision to keep the show in the comedy category where it's been since Season 2. "I personally feel like we've made our bed," she says. "It would be very strange to move back to drama because, if anything, we're funnier now. Also, if Desperate Housewives is being considered a comedy then we are a comedy. If that's the scale, then it almost ties our hands."
