2007 Emmy Nominations Announced

The nominations for the 2007 Emmy Awards have been announced! The award ceremony, which is set to air in September, will celebrate a year’s worth of primetime television. Which show is leading the pack with a whopping 15 nominations? I’ll give you a hint – “Don’t Stop Believin -----”. That’s right, HBO’s ‘Sopranos,’ which aired its final episode this year, will probably end up winning at least a few of the shiny gold statues, barring any major upsets of course.

I think the toughest category to call this year is the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. In that category, Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven are both up for an award for their roles in ‘Entourage,’ Neil Patrick Harris scored a very well deserved nomination for his role in ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and Rainn Wilson has been recognized for his hilarity in his role as Dwight on ‘The Office.’
