Emmy Nominees React to Their Golden Opportunities

We know what you think about the nominees for this year's Primetime Emmy Awards, but what do the lucky nominees have to say about their good fortune? Some of your favorites reveal what went through their minds as the good news got out.

Doug Ellin, executive producer of Entourage (Outstanding Comedy Series nominee)
"The New York Times called Entourage the best show in its first season. If for some reason [the voters] appreciate it more and we win this time, there's nothing we've consciously done to change it.... I spoke to Jeremy [Piven], who's in London doing a movie, and I'm playing golf with Kevin [Dillon] in about two hours. Jeremy is kind of our home-run hitter, I knew he was going to get nominated, and when Kevin and Martin Landau also got nominated, it was just great."

I'll boil it down best I can:The Write StuffProducers and performers may submit an essay (of 250 words or less) offering context for the episodes they submit in the best-series and lead-actor races. This is to help shows such as Lost, which is believed to have been hamstrung last year by bewildered voters who don't have the Fuselage bookmarked.Short Ain't SweetA so-called "Ellen Burstyn rule" calls for long-form supporting-actor nominees to have appeared in at least five percent of the program.Popularity ContestPerhaps the most controversial "fix" has the nominees in key acting and series categories being determined by a 50/50 mix of judging-panel ballots and the "popular vote" of Academy members.

The nominees for the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy awards were announced Thursday morning, and Fox's 24 led the pack with 12 nods, including outstanding drama series, while NBC's Will & Grace exited on a high note with 10 noms, the most of any sitcom alive or dead.

(Consolation for shouldering a C story?) Also: Where is Hugh Laurie? Jason Lee? Any of Steve Carell's Office mates? Great new voting system there. But I digress. Here's a sample:Outstanding Drama Series: Grey's Anatomy, House, The Sopranos, 24 and The West WingOutstanding Comedy Series: Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Office, Scrubs and Two and a Half Men Lead Actress/Drama: Frances Conroy (Six Feet Under), Geena Davis (Commander in Chief), Mariska Hargitay (Law & Order: SVU), Allison Janney (The West Wing) and Kyra Sedgwick (The... read more
