The Phlegmmy Awards!

Just like I did for the movies around Oscar season, I want to put forth a list of nominees for my awards for Television – The Phlegmmys. I’ll just post the nominees now, but if any Emmy voters are out there want to learn something going forward in phase 2 of voting, maybe you can help make the right decision come awards night. Or not. Whatever.

A couple things to note – I watch way more comedies than I do dramas. My drama section is better than it has been in years past, but this is my first official year doing this and you’ll notice a high proportion of new shows in the drama section. I’m sorry world, but I haven’t seen Breaking Bad, I’m behind on Dexter, and I can’t get through season 2 of Man Men. I said it.
