It's Like I Said It Myself - The TCA Nominations 2007

The TV Critics Association (TCA) nominations came out today (awards are on July 21st) and I couldn't have said it myself any better. Friday Night Lights garnered the most nominations, well deservedly, including nominations for both Connie Britton AND Kyle Chandler! Emmy, are you hearing this?

PROGRAM OF THE YEAR
"American Idol" (Fox")
"Friday Night Lights" (NBC")
"Heroes" (NBC")
"Planet Earth" (Discovery")
"The Wire" (HBO")
"When the Levees Broke" (HBO")

It's weird seeing Planet Earth, When The Levees Broke and American Idol in the same category.

COMEDY
"30 Rock" (NBC")
"The Daily Show" (Comedy Central")
"Entourage" (HBO")
"The Office" (NBC")
"Ugly Betty" (ABC")

I would replace The Colbert Report instead of The Daily Show this year, or throw in How I Met Your Mother but basically good picks.

DRAMA
"Friday Night Lights" (NBC")
"Heroes" (NBC")
"Lost" (ABC")
"The Sopranos" (HBO")
"The Wire" (HBO")

I still haven't seen The Wire but hear it's excellent but again, pretty good picks, though I dropped The Sopranos a few seasons back and haven't caught up so I have no idea what's going on anymore. I would have thrown in Veronica Mars but I understand that the 1st 2 seasons were better and why it might have been left off.

MOVIES, MINISERIES AND SPECIALS
"Broken Trail" (AMC")
"Planet Earth" (Discovery")
"Prime Suspect" (PBS")
"The State Within" (BBC America")
"When the Levees Broke" (HBO")

NEW PROGRAM
"30 Rock" (NBC")
"Dexter" (Showtime")
"Friday Night Lights" (NBC")
"Heroes" (NBC")
"Ugly Betty" (ABC")

INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT IN COMEDY
Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock")
Stephen Colbert ("The Colbert Report")
America Ferrera ("Ugly Betty")
Tina Fey ("30 Rock")
Jon Stewart ("The Daily Show")

INDIVIDUAL ACHIEVEMENT IN DRAMA
Connie Britton ("Friday Night Lights")
Kyle Chandler ("Friday Night Lights")
Michael C. Hall ("Dexter")
Hugh Laurie ("House")
Helen Mirren ("Prime Suspect")

Sweet. Both Tami AND Eric Taylor are nominated!

CHILDREN'S PROGRAMMING
"Dora the Explorer" (Nickelodeon)
"Johnny and the Sprites" (The Disney Channel)
"Kyle XY" (ABC Family)
"Lincoln Heights" (ABC Family)
"SpongeBob Squarepants" (Nickelodeon)

I REALLY want to see Johnny and the Sprites, starring John Targalia (of Avenue Q fame and currently in Beauty and the Beast on Broadway).

NEWS & INFORMATION
"Baghdad ER" (HBO")
"Bill Moyers Journal" (PBS")
"Galapagos" (National Geographic")
"Planet Earth" (Discovery")
"When the Levees Broke" (HBO")

HERITAGE AWARD
"MASH" (CBS")
"Roots" (ABC")
"Sesame Street" (PBS")
"The Mary Tyler Moore Show" (CBS")
"The Sopranos" (HBO")

How is The Sopranos already Heritage?
