What people are talking about this week: 2012 Emmy Awards Snubs
View Comments(1)

I watch a lot of television. I mean, way too much. So I have a few opinions on the recent Emmy Award nominations that took place earlier this week. In particular, these three glaring omissions that the folks over at the Emmys made:

Nick Offerman as Ron Swanson

Offerman has created one of the great characters on TV but was looked over in the Best Supporting Actor on a Comedy Series category. Few characters have had the cultural impact Ron Swanson has had over the past couple years, continually delivering memorable quotes. No offense to Max Greenfield of "New Girl" for his nod, but you, sir, are no Ron Swanson.

Conan

Conan O'Brien has been a fixture on late night for nearly two decades and has always been one of the funniest people out there. When he returned to New York for a week earlier this year he delivered some of his best shows ever. In my opinion, Conan definitely outperformed both Jimmy Fallon and Bill Maher for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series. TEAM COCO!

Parks and Recreation

Ok, so maybe I'm really showing my bias towards this show based on my earlier Ron Swanson snub, but really this is the funniest show on television! Not only should it have been nominated, but it should win! "Veep"? Really? Really? If you don't watch "Parks and Recreation," make sure you do so soon. That is all.


Are there any Emmy nominations or snubs you were surprised by? Let us know in the comments below!

It’s hard not to let your Ron Swanson flag fly! Everyday, I aim to be more like that man, down to the breakfast décor in my office at Dish. LOL! And I completely agree that Parks and Rec is the funniest show on TV. For the people who haven’t seen it, go check it out right now! Episodes are available, among tons of other shows, on DishOnline.com, even with out a subscription. Once you see the brilliance of the show for yourselves, there are positions available in the angry mob I am forming to riot the Academy for this decision. ;)
