Blogs, Twitter Abuzz with Emmy Reax

7/08/2010 12:53:48 PM

The Twitterverse was abuzz this morning with the announcement of Emmy nominations. Reactions from around the blogosphere were mostly positive for the strong showing by first-time nominees and the inevitable groaning over those omitted like FX’s Sons of Anarchy and most of the cast of NBC’s Parks and Recreation.

A round up of feedback on the noms from around the Web is below:

Alan Sepinwall, Hit Fix

Maureen Ryan, Chicago Tribune

James Poniewozik, TIME

David Bianculli, TV Worth Watching

Robert Seidman, TV by the Numbers

And on Twitter…

@poniewozik Called it! Had nothing to do w it, but called it! RT @writerchica: @chriscolfer of #Glee gets a nom. AWESOME. #Emmy

@sepinwall Lots of annoying Emmy nominations already, but Coach and Mrs. Coach from FNL both got nods. Nice.

@ConanOBrien Congrats to my staff on 4 Emmy nominations. This bodes well for the future of The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.

@HitFixDaniel [Yes. The previous tweet was sarcastic. Matthew Morrison *may* be the morning’s least deserving Emmy nominee.]
