Emmy nominees, possibly maybe


As you’ve probably heard, earlier this week TheEnvelope.com leaked a short list of Emmy nominations. The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has made no comment on the list’s accuracy, choosing instead to remind academy members that they have signed a confidentiality agreement (the Academy will mess you up, Emmy voters!) and also reminding the public that nominees won’t be officially announced until July 19.

I don’t know why it matters, really — we’re used to hanging chads and other forms of disenfranchisement in the U.S., so what’s a little spilled ink among TV fans? Plus, who really tunes in for the nominee announcements anyway? (There’s a motivating factor this year, though: Kyra Sedgwick will be one of the announcers. Won’t it be weird if she has to announce herself?)

Anyway, whether these nominees are guesses or sure things, I’m happy to post some photos. The Emmy Awards ceremony airs Sept. 16 at 8/7c on Fox. (Visit TheEnvelope.com for the full, unverified short list.)
