Nominees for the 63rd Emmy Award were announced Thursday morning, and both the Twitterverse and blogosphere were afire with congratulations — and indignation. While Modern Family saw its entire adult cast receive nominations in the Supporting Actress/Actor in a Comedy Series category, garnering positive reactions from the pundits, NBC’s Community was snubbed again this year. Johnny Galecki’s nomination for The Big Bang Theory was a welcome surprise, but nods for the embattled miniseries The Kennedys were not.

@nprmonkeysee: I actually think Johnny Galecki — whom I like, and whom I think is underpraised — is one of the most legitimately surprising nominees.
