The 2009 Emmy nominations get a big thumbs down from those of us associated with this blog. Last year, Little People, Big World earned an Emmy nomination for Original Musical dramatic score - Joey Newman - for the Grand Canyon episode.
This year, personally, I thought Joey Newman's music was top notch, especially the episode dealing with Mike Detjen's passing and the piece he called 'Remembering Mike'.
I enjoyed the music more in that episode than the one that earned him the nomination last year, but unfortunately he wasn't nominated when they announced it yesterday.
These were the nominations this year:
Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score)
* Ghost Whisperer
* Legend Of The Seeker
* The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
* The Simpsons
For those wondering, the nominated reality programs were:
* Antiques Roadshow
* Dirty Jobs
* Dog Whisperer
* Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List
I don't watch any of those regularly :-)
