Emmy finalists?

by Jennifer Squires Biller

An early list of Emmy finalists has surfaced at Gold Derby, and if these are even close to being accurate, I am one happy Tuber. (Well, 99 percent happy, anyway. Veronica Mars isn’t on the best drama list. Sniff. Sniff.) Emmy guru Tom O’Neil published the list saying that about “40 percent” of the nominees had been verified. However, he cautioned readers that the nominees “should not be considered accurate since they were compiled via pooling Internet gossip.” Here’s hoping this list is indeed accurate, because it’s full of actors/actresses/shows that don’t normally feel the Emmy love. If this actually turns out to be true, a big thumbs up to the new Emmy voting/nomination process.

I have a question about this list. These are just the people who made it to the "consideration" stage, not necessarily the people who will get nominated. Is that right? I'm still pretty happy with the list but I always get a bit confused when I see it.

The list looks fairly accurate, I guess Thursday is not that far away and we will know for sure.
I will be at the Emmys no matter who is nominated but it is nice to see the final lists :)
