It’s no secret that Friday Night Lights is one of my most favorite TV programs ever. It is brilliant, the acting is the best on TV, and it tackles issues that no other shows would ever touch. But it tackles those issues in real ways that are poignant and sometimes really upsetting.
I’ve been waiting YEARS for stars from the show to get Emmy nominations, some recognition of the amazing work that they do. Finally, finally, finally this morning the two leads , Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, (Coach and Tami, his wife) got what they deserve with nominations in the Outstanding Actor and Outstanding Actress in a Drama categories. Yay!!!
It appears that they haven’t read supporting yet, but both Taylor Kitsch and Zach Gilford were phenomenal this season. As was Michael B. Jordan. It makes me sad that Gaius Charles never got a nom. He was amazing.
Entertainment Weekly is updating this website as the nominations roll out.
