So, what are my thoughts? I’m more satisfied with these than with the SAG nominations. I think this is a more accurate picture of what’s award-worthy on TV. Were there some snubs? Of course, but there will always be…especially with the innumerable avenues for TV now (with cable networks and all) and the quality TV that’s being put out of late. What do I think was snubbed? “The Walking Dead,” “Treme,” Zachary Quinto for “American Horror Story,” and (guilty pleasure to admit) Jennifer Love Hewitt for “The Client List.”

How do y’all feel about the Globes nomination list?
