      This year's Emmy nominees were selected under a new set of rules, which were enacted to prevent a predictable glut of fan favorites and hit series and give underrated but deserving contenders a fair chance. But did the change really work? Shows like Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars were still left off the list, and several nominations were given to shows that are no longer on the air! Another bug surprise was that such TV hits like Lost & Desperate Housewives were not nominated which disappointed fans.

      With returning host Conan O'Brien, it's sure to be an exciting evening, no matter what happens, so be sure to tune in!
