Just re-watch "The Economist" and "The Shape of Things to Come," and you'll know why.
Here is the complete Best Supporting Actor shortlist:
Naveen Andrews, Lost
Bruce Dern, Big Love
Christian Clemenson, Boston Legal
Ted Danson, Damages
Michael Emerson, Lost
Zeljko Ivanek, Damages
T.R. Knight, Grey's Anatomy
William Shatner, Boston Legal
John Slattery, Mad Men
Blair Underwood, In Treatment
Jake Weber, Medium
The name Zeljko Ivanek caught my eye: he played Juliet Burke's ex-husband, Edmund Burke, back in Season 3!
Here's the complete Best Supporting Actress shortlist:
Jane Alexander, Tell Me You Love Me
Candice Bergen, Boston Legal
Rose Byrne, Damages
Jill Clayburgh, Dirty Sexy Money
Sharon Gless, Burn Notice
Rachel Griffiths, Brothers and Sisters
Christina Hendricks, Mad Men
S. Epatha Merkerson, Law and Order
Sandra Oh, Grey's Anatomy
Dianne Wiest, In Treatment
Chandra Wilson, Grey's Anatomy
Sadly, no LOST actress is in the list, but I've always been a fan of Sandra Oh and Chandra Wilson (well, since Grey's Anatomy first aired, anyway). So I hope either actress wins it!
Stay tuned for more Emmy Awards 2008 and/or LOST news.
And, oh, Happy Canada Day!
