Finally... LOST is back in the Outstanding Drama Series race. I was afraid that Grey's Anatomy's immense popularity would knock LOST out of the final list of nominees. Phew! Also, I totally rejoiced when I saw Michael Emerson's name in the Outstanding Supporting Actor nominee list. Woo hoo! He absolutely deserves the nomination. I'm just curious why Henry Ian Cusick isn't nominated for "The Constant"... Or Sonya Walger for her guest spot as Penelope Widmore; she was good in "The Constant". Heck, even Alan Dale probably should have been nominated.

And why in the world isn't LOST nominated in the writing and directing categories???

Yeah, well. That's life...

But I'm glad there's a category for mobisodes/webisodes. I didn't even know there was one.

Let's see how LOST fares at the ceremonies on 21 September at 8/7 central. Keep your fingers crossed and/or hands clasped in prayer.
