The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2009. Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) will have hosting duties. In my opinion there were some surprise snubs. Notably missing from the nominees were America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”), Katherine Heigl (“Grey’s Anatomy”), and Anna Paquin who won a Golden Globe for her performance in “True Blood” this year.
Kudos to “Chuck” for receiving one nomination for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for “Chuck versus The First Date” and an extra special thumbs up to “Legend of the Seeker” for receiving its first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Original Dramatic Score) for its series premiere: “Prophecy”. I also hope that this is the year that either Chandra Wilson or Sandra Oh will win an Emmy for their work on “Grey’s Anatomy”.
