  • Newbies recognized this year include Courteney Cox (Cougar Town), Thomas Jane (Hung), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) and .
  • Despite big buzz around Emmy time, Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons did not get any love this time around. Meanwhile, Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) was snubbed as well.
