The Wire, Dexter are among the semi-finalists for Emmy awards.

It would be one season too late, but The Wire has a chance to becoming a finalist for an Emmy.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the ten semi-finalists for the best Drama and Best comedy catagories.

Best Drama:
Boston Legal
Damages
Dexter
Friday Night Lights
Grey’s Anatomy
House
Lost
The Tudors
The Wire

I have to say I am thrilled to see both Dexter and The Wire on the list, as well as Damages. But can anyone tell me why Boston Legal is even being considered??

I love the show, but season four was the weakest to date and was hardly award worthy.

Voters:
Please show the world you are not as clueless as I accused you of being last year. Put Damages, Dexter and The Wire among the finalists. It will send a message to the free tv networks that it is time to step up and improve the quality of their shows. Nothing I have seen on the big four can compare to the three shows I just mentioned.

Oh yeah, here are the final ten for comedy.
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Entourage
Family Guy
Flight of the Conchords
The Office
Pushing Daisies
30 Rock
Two and a Half Men
Ugly Betty
Weeds
