Dexter

Squeezed in between the Golden Globes broadcast and the Oscar nominations is an awards ceremony voted on solely by the actors. (So unlike the People’s Choice Awards, this actually has meaning.)

  • The Closer, Dexter and 30 Rock lead this year’s pack with three nominations each.
  • Despite no individual mentions, freshman comedies and Glee were both honored in the Best Ensemble category.
  • Samantha Who‘s Christina Applegate received a nomination despite starring in a canceled show.
  • received its first nom—but just for its cast, not for any single actor.

The will air Saturday, Jan. 23 on both TNT and TBS.

MONDAY (12/7)

Looks like somebody just wasn’t in the mood to share this week. Although Thursdays are typically known for win-win situations (CBS wins the viewers; ABC wins the demos), that was not the case last night. This time around the Eye network surprisingly took both categories.
