*Special note: The Long-Form Television category encompasses both movies of the week and mini-series.

  1. So what’s the time period for the shows nominated?Curb had it’s season finale in November 2009.Surely it ended too long ago to be nominated.

  2. How the heck is Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List” considered for excellence for Outstanding Producer of Non-Fiction Television ? This is beyond ridiculous ! ! I want the annoying Kathy to go away.

  3. The feature nominees are pretty predictable. Shame they picked pap like THE TOWN over the much more adventuruous WINTER’S BONE.

  4. Where is Boardwalk Empire the most beautifully produced show on TV?
    Seriously? Nothing on TV is produced with that kind of visual detail and richness. The acting, the writing and directing all are brilliant. What gives?

  5. Yep. Replace “The Town” with “Winter’s Bone” and you’ve got the 10 Best Picture nominees.

  6. These TV noms are so strange. Are they for last year? Where is Boardwalk Empire? That so clearly has to be the best made show on TV.
    Explain to me the dates for TV so I can understand this bizarre omission. Are these all for last season?

  7. I just hope that the award will be given in the most deserving. I also think that “The Town” should really replace the “Winter’s Bone”

  8. Even Umberto Eco, writer of the history of lists and list-making, would have to note that there are just too many Top 10’s floating around. Ten seems to be the butterfly net catching all. Top 3 is meaningful, Top 10 after Top 10 becomes merely apologetic… let’s end this needless addiction to 10’s. Finger counting is adorable, in toddlers and children, not so much in Hollywood circles with benefits.

  9. Kinda stunned to not see COMMUNITY on the list of comedy nominees. Every episode this past season was more original and interesting than anything on 30 ROCK or THE OFFICE. Are PGA members actually watching these shows, or just reading Twitter feeds about them?
