Thoughts on the 2009 Emmy Nominations

This isn't going to be about who should have been nominated, but my thoughts on those who were chosen. Granted some performers I know little or nothing about, and I'll cop to that when I get to them as I don't watch anything on CBS daytime regularly except for GL. What is kind of sad is that only one episode (two if it is B&B as it is a 30 minute show) is all that was used to judge any performance. Just about any actor on any show with a dash of talent can eke out at least one good episode a year. And like last year there was only one round of voting, which stinks as people who didn't choose one of the five people nominated in a particular category really had no vote.
