    Well, nominations for the Emmy awards were announced this morning. 'Sopranos' racked them up, but they did last year as well and got spanked. No nods for 'Buffy' which was odd, yet predictable, though many considered 'The Body' episode some the finest TV of the season. 'Friends' too was absent in the 'Best Comedy' slot, bumped by 'Malcom in the Middle.' I didn't know they added two new 'reality' programming categories this year.
    I got some of the below from CNN.com. Emmy.tv has a PDF file with all of the nominations, including technical nominations.....
    (CNN) -- The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced its nominations for the 53rd Emmy Awards, and HBO's "The Sopranos" whacked the competition, picking up 22 nominations including one for best drama.
    NBC's "The West Wing" was second, with 18 nominations. It was also nominated for best drama, along with "ER," "Law & Order" and "The Practice."
    The nominees for best comedy were "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Frasier," "Malcolm in the Middle," "Sex and the City," and last year's winner, "Will & Grace."

    Buffy being shut out is a bummer, but I don't know if the Academy knows what to do with Buffy, is it a comedy or a drama?
    I was glad to see the Powerpuff Girls, The Daily Show, and Freaks and Geeks nominated.
    I haven't watched the Emmy's in years. I only watch The Oscars, the SAG awards, and the Indipendent Spirit Awards.
