Star Wars: Uncut is up for an Emmy!

Casey Pugh’s brainchild of collaborative fandom love is up against against network-producted fare for Glee and Dexter for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media – Fiction. Big congratulations to Casey and all who participated!

The Emmys are rarely a big deal for genre shows, but Lost is one of the few that have gotten plenty of love – and that adds up to twelve nominations for their final season, including Outstanding Drama Series. (Along with True Blood.) Matthew Fox, Terry O’Quinn, Michael Emerson and Elizabeth Mitchell are all up for acting.

Robot Chicken got two nominations, one for their ‘Full-Assed Christmas Special’ and another for Seth Green’s voiceovers.

As for the other genre nods, Ian McKellen got one for being the only part of The Prisoner remake that anyone liked, while Caprica, Stargate Universe, and V will duke it out with original flavor CSI for special effects.

    I have to admit that I don’t really get the Emmy noms this year. Nineteen nominations for Glee? For real? Isn’t that overdoing it a little? Not surprised to see the genre stuff largely disregarded, but I was a bit surprised by the absence of Treme and Justified in several categories.

    Ehh, it’s the Emmys. They’ll just give everything to Fraiser 30 Rock until it gets canceled.

    (Not that I don’t love me some Tina Fey. But every year?)

    True enough. I have this sort of selective amnesia when it comes to awards shows. Every year I look forward to the Emmy nominations, and every year I end up asking myself, “Aren’t the people in charge of this actually supposed to watch television?”
