"And The Emmy Goes To...4.06"

Well, in a perfect world it would anyway, IMHO!
I'm glad that TOQ got Outstanding Supporting Actor in a drama last year, after being the hardest working man in television since 1980. But this is Michael Emerson's year, after "The Other Woman". Can he get any creepier? Probably.

I think the people who vote in the Emmys get confused by ensemble casts. Too many choices to make. And the best shows suffer.

Not only that, but Lost isn't neatly labeled by a genre. Is it mystery? Drama? Sci-fi (the kiss of death)? They can't put it in a neat box, so how to compare it to other shows...?

I hope ME and EM both get nominations for their work, and I hope this episode is submitted. Creepy Ben and Clueless Juliet, what a pair!

You know, you're right about those things that you said about the Emmy voters. Much easier (but less creative) to qualify accolades within the confines of doctors and gangsters. :-p

True, EM deserves recognition too. I remember her from a JAG episode, and her acting style back then was strong but understated.
