Emmys: Bow to the Fox!  
Oh yeah, and so is Terry, Michael, Elizabeth and the show!!! 

I know that I talk shit about the Emmys all the time (it's not like they don't deserve the criticism, especially for side-swiping so much talent for the usual list of nominees each year), but the fact that they didn't snub Matthew for the fifth time makes me really happy!!! 

For Matthew (Fox) , he’s labored almost unfairly on a show that’s more ensemble-oriented than the guys he’s competing against. Fortunately, the finale was Matthew-centric and he was finally given a chance to be front and center in such a way that allows voters to take notice.
He was so critical to our show.

ME TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Matthew Fox is so deserving of this! I'm excited for Terry and Micheal too, but they've already been nominated and WON, so I'm not as psyched for them as I am for Matthew! Liz getting the guest actress nom for "The End" was great as well!

Lost being nominated for Best Series, Writing, Direction and Sound Editing is great!

What Carlton really means is this: "Foxy got stuck carrying the burden of a real lead on a show where there were a lot of extraneous characters who didn't really mean shit to the actual plot -- characthers like Sawyer for example -- but in the end, he was so astoundingly awesome that even the cabal of morons that are the Emmy Nominating Committee were forced to take notice. He was really the only reason did Lost not totally spin off into total jump-the-sharkdom at so many junctures after Season 3, that every single one of us involved in the production owe him all kinds of sexual favors for saving our jobs and allowing us to keep our incredibly cushy and extravagantly high paying jobs for as long as we have. Line forms behind me."

I was waiting for the actual, true translation! Thank you for not being a moment too soon! Matthew Fox IS Lost, and yeah, that's a cocky thing to say, but the shit don't work without the motor that gets it goin'.

I'm always proud of him and his acting chops, Emmy Nom or not, but this is truly six years in the making.

I'm so excited for him. I think I'm more excited for Foxy...IN A TUX. HOTDAYUM.

Foxy in a tux? Yummy!

Oh, and here's what tvguide said about his nomination.

Matthew Fox: After six seasons on Lost (not to mention six on Party of Five), the artist formerly known as the savior of Funhouse Island received his first Emmy nomination. Even before his tear-jerking death in the series finale, Fox's understated performance was the glue of the ensemble.
Erica: THIS...in Heavenforever_erica on July 9th, 2010 12:56 am (UTC)
TV GUIDE knows what's up! I love it! Thanks for the quote Allison!

Everyone is calling this nomination WAY OVERDUE, and they're right. I love that he received at least one for his back-breaking work on this "ensemble" show. Somebody would have had to stop me from calling 911 on every Emmy Voting Committee member if Matthew's name wasn't called this morning. I'm serious. :P

Foxy on the Emmy red carpet in a TUX: That's the gift that keeps on giving. ;)

Im SO FREAKING HAPPY for Foxy :D and the show... But For Foxy especially!!
Erica: THIS...in Heavenforever_erica on July 10th, 2010 04:31 pm (UTC)
Me too! I can't wait to see him on Emmy Night. He is so deserving of this! I'm excited for Terry, Micheal and the show too, but they've already been nominated and WON, so I think that the icing on the LOST cake would be to give props to the lead of this monstrosity.

I came on LJ specifically to find you after I learned the news of his nominations LOL! I knew you woould be just as excited as I was.

As for Foxy's long over due credit for his amazing work as an actor on LOST....... IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME!

He just has to freaking win. Honestly I don't even know who he is up against but no one holds a candle to Fox this year. NO ONE.

As for Terry and Michael... eh... they have been there and done that. They are good actors but over rated if you ask me compared for Foxy.

I was so happy for Liz though to finally get her credit. She is another actor who never gets credit for being so amazing.

You wanted to find me bb!? *HUGS YOU*. I got up the morning the nominations were announced, and when I heard his name, I couldn't even THINK STRAIGHT. It was simply amazing. He is so deserving.

And you're right, Terry and Michael have been there and done that and it's time for Matthew to get his due. He's been carrying the show for six years, from beginning to end. He needs to be recognized for that. Carlton's quote is so spot-on. He was basically the pivot point of LOST and it wouldn't have worked without him.

And YAY for Liz! 10 minutes she's being nominated for. AWESOME! ;)

Me toooooooo! I can't wait for the ceremony. I don't want to think that Matthew will lose, but win or lose, I'm proud of the work he's done for six years.

I'm so happy he finally got the recognition he deserved!

And Fox in a suit, DAYUM, that will be hot!
