The Emmys ignores “Lost,” love “24”

On Thursday, July 6, the nominees for the 2006 Emmy awards were announced. In a huge coup for ABC’s hit television drama, Lost did not get nominated for Outstanding Drama Series. Nor did any actor or actress get nominated for an Emmy. Not even Adewale Akinnyoye-Agbaje! Mr. Eko just may have to beat somebody down with his stick… In total, HBO is nominated 95 times, ABC has 63 nods, while CBS and NBC have 47 nods each. FOX has 41 nominations.

  1. John Jurries Says:

    No suprise on the Lost front. Some of the actors might of deserved a nod, but the writing for season 2 was hardly award worthy. And nice to see the NBC’s constant barrage of “Give us an Emmy” episodes of SVU this past season paid off.
