Now that the Primetime Emmy nominees have been bared, I wish Hugh Laurie would grab his first Emmy on September 21. The Emmy has been elusive to Hugh unlike the SAG and Golden Globe awards. He’s still up against last year’s winner, James Spader of Boston Legal, and the stars of Dexter, Mad Men and cable shows In Treatment and Breaking Bad.
I admit it will be tough because James Spader is really good and so is Jon Hamm (Mad Men). I said that after watching only about 3 to 4 episodes each of their shows. However, Hugh has worked hard in the last season, I strongly believe he has to have it this time. They submitted House’s Head, the second to the last episode for the Best Actor category. They submitted the episode Ugly for Best Drama series category. Now this one may get a tougher time because overall, Mad Men is really an awesome show for a newbie in the race.
I just hope Hugh wins. I would also like to see Sally Field win again for Best Actress. As for the rest, I will just wait and see.
