QuickTakes: What did you find most surprising about the Emmy nominations?

Jul 20, 2008  •  Post A Comment

“Bryan Cranston was the biggest, and most pleasant, surprise of the Emmy nominations. The show [“Breaking Bad”] is watched by, like, five people. It aired during the strike when nobody was paying attention to scripted TV. He spends half the pilot coughing up a lung, and his character is a meth dealer. I never in a million years thought the Emmy voters would even know the show existed, let alone nominate a guy they snubbed for every season of ‘Malcolm in the Middle.’”
—Alan Sepinwall, TV critic, Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger
“When shows like ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ that have big audiences and have proven themselves, aren’t nominated. That we were nominated and having two basic-cable shows nominated. We thought if any basic-cable show was going to be nominated it would be ‘Mad Men.’”
—Daniel Zelman, co-creator, “Damages”
