Emmy nominations - 2009

Not many surprises. I actually copy and pasted last year's list and there weren't that many changes.

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Comedy Series

The Big Bang Theory: Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper
Flight Of The Conchords: Jemaine Clement as Jemaine
Monk: Tony Shalhoub as Adrian Monk
The Office: Steve Carell as Michael Scott
30 Rock: Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy
Two And A Half Men: Charlie Sheen as Charlie Harper (WHY, ACADEMY, WHY DO YOU NOMINATE HIM EVERY YEAR? He is likeable, sure, but a comedy void. Stop encouraging him.)

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series

Breaking Bad: Bryan Cranston as Walt White
Dexter: Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan
House: Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House
In Treatment: Gabriel Byrne as Paul
Mad Men: Jon Hamm as Don Draper
The Mentalist: Simon Baker as Patrick Jane (the only new addition in this category, and a decidedly dull one. Where is Kyle Chandler?)

Samantha Who?: Christina Applegate as Samantha Newly
The Sarah Silverman Program: Sarah Silverman as Sarah Silverman
