He's in good company--my Army buddy Brenda advises that neither Alexander Skarsgaard nor any of the rest of the cast of Generation Kill were even nominated.

What gets to me is when an actor gets nominated for basically being themselves. Just an ordinary person. That's not acting. That's walking trough a role.

While it's unfortunate (and not surprising) I am chuffed to see Andy Serkis nommed for Little Dorritt. His Rigaud was truly despicable.

But I think we can all agree that if Showtime had invested more in promoting BH likes it does with Dexter and Weeds, then it would have gotten some noms.

Hell, it would have stayed on the air if they had been promoted the show better.

But the Emmys, to me, seems more like a populairty contest then a bonafide awards show. Other well known and respected shows that had good promotion got snubbed from the race.

So it seems these nominations are about who you know then how good you are as an actor. Lord know, if that was the case, Jason would have gotten a few under his belt along time ago.
