Desperate Housewives stars to boycott Emmys?
STAYING AT HOME

Desperate Housewives actresses Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria and Marcia Cross may snub this year's Emmy Awards after failing to pick up any nominations. With the only star from the show to land an individual nomination being Alfre Woodard in the Best Supporting Actress In A Comedy category, the other Housewives are reportedly feeling less than enthusiastic about attending. "None of them are going," a source claims. "Felicity Huffman may go as a presenter because she won the lead actress Emmy last year and they usually have last year's winner present this year's award. But the rest of them are definitely not going. If you're not nominated, you really don't have a reason to go. It's a lot of prep work to get in shape, all made-up, pick gowns and dressed-up to these things. It's exhausting. And if you're not up for an award, and it's just going to be embarrassing, why go?"

That sophomore slump feeling certainly showed up amongst this year’s Emmy award nominations with last year’s big winners “Lost” and “Desperate Housewives” failing to garner nominations in most of the key categories, including the ones they won in last year like best actress and drama series respectively. This is the year the Emmys were supposed to break new ground. Breathless stories ran in Variety and the Hollywood Reporter recently about how the new voting system would lead to some wonderful surprises that would revitalize interest in the long distrusted award show and reward some new talent.
‘24′ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ have dominated the nominations for the 58th Annual Emmy Awards in the US. ‘24′ with their action thriller series, has been nominated in 12 categories while ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ has received 11 nominations; both are nominated for Outstanding Drama Series.
They go up against long running HBO gangster show ‘The Sopranos’ and the recently cancelled political drama ‘The West Wing’. Both shows have previously scooped the accolade.
‘Curb YoView the profile for Kate Winslet on Celebrity Spotlightur Enthusiasm’, ‘Two and a Half Men’, ‘Scrubs’, ‘The Office’ and ‘Arrested Development’ are all in the running to be named Outstanding Comedy Series.

Interesting there were a lack of new series from this past season garnering serious attention. Whilst new hit cable shows like “The Closer”, “Huff” and “Weeds” took in nods, of the new network shows it was only female acting turns in shows like “My Name is Earl”, “The New Adventures of Old Christine”, “Commander-in-Chief” and “Out of Practice” that got any attention in the major categories. British mini-series imports “Bleak House” & “”Elizabeth I” also fared superbly.
Last year’s Emmy winner for best comedy series, Desperate Housewives, was shut out in series and acting categories with one awkward exception: Alfre Woodard, who has since left the show, was nominated for best supporting actress.
Among the other stars who have been nominated across the various TV categories are: Gillian Anderson (’Bleak House’); Lisa Kudrow (’The Comeback’); Debra Messing (’Will & Grace’); Kyra Sedgwick (’The Closer’); Martin Sheen (’The West Wing’) and the ‘Extras’ trio of Patrick Stewart, Ben Stiller and Kate Winslet.

Not that I usually like Teri, Marcia and Eva's fashion choices, but I do hope they go to the Emmy's just because they bring a lot of glamour to the red carpet. Wasn't it at last years Emmy's that Marcia wore that fabulous green Elie Saab gown? Could be kind of boring without them there.

That aside (which sounds like a joke to me anyway, not totally serious), DH had its best season ever, and for it not to get nominated is like a slap in the face. The lost finale for season 2 is also considered to be one of the finest finales ever made for television, and it was also snubbed. I mean, nobody cares about Emmy awards because they aren't taken that seriously but it still seems like an insult.

Personally, I thought DH went downhill after the first season....seems, from what I've heard anyway (I stopped watching after 1st season) that they're just pulling the usual drama/suspense tricks to keep the show alive.

I dunno, I think it's a little overrated so I'm glad they didn't get any nominations....maybe time for them to get a taste of humble pie.

Again, like I've said before, I can't stand awards shows so I think they should just skip the hoopla and Fed-Ex everyone their awards.

Agreed.

What makes them the final authority on who should and shouldn't be nominated?

Oh please. Who cares if they don't attend. I doubt I'll be watching the Emmys and thinking "Now where on earth are the Desperate Housewives?"

It's just some media ploy, imo.

i'm just happy the west wing got the nominations it deserved.

i think desperate housewives is good, but not that good. it's not classic tv.

I've never heard that from anybody, and you should definitely judge it for yourself instead of listening to others...

I just watched E News tonight and Ryan Seacrest asked Eva Longoria if this is true, and she said that it isn't true. She even has a dress picked out for Emmy's already.
