While JAMers are probably complaining about John Krasinski being left off the list (he was on the initial list of top 10 nominees for Supporting Actor), if you look at the actual nominees it's not like Krasinski was robbed. While I don't watch Jon Cryer's Two and a Half Men, I can say with certainty that the nominations for Jeremy Piven and Kevin Dillion, and Neil Patrick Harris are most deserved. Certainly Rainn Wilson did a better job this season than Krasinski who's Emmy chances were likely doomed to his character's required sleepwalking through the entire season. The fact that Wilson scored one of the slots should be viewed a big step forward for the show and actor, considering how competitive this category is.

Besides, The Office employee most deserving of a nomination was Jenna
Fischer anyway. She was the focal point of the entire third season and continues to be the emotional center of the show. The show could have swept the Supporting Actor cateogory including Creed Bratton and Brian Baumgartner but if Fischer had been snubbed it would have been a dark day. So, let's celebrate Fischer's recognition, along with Steve Carell, the producers, the writers, and directors. Krasinski will have plenty of time next season to show a range of emotions. Or so I hope.


I pretty much agree with Kevin's comments above.  Steve, Rainn, and Jenna really WERE the most integral characters to season three, and I also agree that John K. didn't really get a chance to show us anything noteworthy.

I'm a bit more baffled by the TWO nominations for one of my least favorite episodes of season three, GAY WITCH HUNT.  Are they giving Kwapis credit for that totally improvised kiss at the end?  Maybe it got the recognition simply because it dealt with the issue of being gay in the workplace.  For my money, though, there were MUCH better episodes they could have chosen (although the way I understand it, the show itself submits what they think are the best episodes).  In any case, let's hope our favorite show gets the recognition they deserve come Emmy time.
