2009 Primetime Emmy Nominations

2009 Emmy nominations

Bright and early this morning, Chandra Wilson and Jim Parsons announced the nominees for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards.

Just like last year, we saw many first-timers named and a long list of cable acknowledgements (for both pay and basic channels). Thanks to expanded categories, we also saw a number of surprises (Flight of the Conchords, ) and overdue nominations (How I Met Your Mother, Big Love).

For the second year in a row, , with its 16 nominations, topped all drama programs. Meanwhile, 30 Rock broke comedy records with a whopping 22 noms. Overall, HBO was the most-nominated network with 99 mentions while NBC - yes, NBC - came in second.

This year’s ceremony will be hosted by Neil Patrick Harris on Sept. 20 on CBS.

Desperate Housewives: Wondering what Susan’s daughter has been up to recently? Well, you will soon find out. Julie Mayer (Andrea Bowen) will be returning to Wisteria Lane next year…for probably more than just a quick visit. The network has confirmed that Julie, who was most most recently seen dating her professor, will at least be back for the September 27 premiere. (Sources say she will become a series regular.) Meanwhile, another young lady has been granted an extended stay. Maiara Walsh, who played Carlos’ niece Ana Solis, will be around to give Gaby grief for the entire season.
