Dexter and Pushing Daisies Rep Horror at the Emmys

The nominations for the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards were (rather quietly) announced yesterday, and horror faves Dexter and Pushing Daisies featured prominently on the ponderously endless list.

Season 2 of Showtime's excellent serial killer drama received five nominations:

  • Dramatic Series
  • Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Michael C. Hall)
  • Sound Mixing (one-hour comedy or drama)
  • Art Direction (single-camera series)
  • Cinematography (one-hour series)

Very gratifying to see Dexter get the Dramatic Series nod. Now if only they had also recognized Battlestar Galactica...

ABC's new smash horror/fantasy/comedy scored an impressive 12 nominations for its debut season:

  • Directing (comedy series)
  • Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Lee Pace)
  • Supporting Actress in a Comedy (Kristin Chenoweth)
  • Writing (comedy series)
  • Art Direction (single-camera series)
  • Picture Editing (comedy series)
  • Casting (comedy series)
  • Costumes (series)
  • Hair-styling (single-camera series)
  • Makeup (single-camera series)
  • Prosthetics
  • Original Score (series)

I've not checked out this show, but it's from Bryan Fuller, creator of Showtime's woefully under-recognized and short-lived Dead Like Me, so I might have to check it out. Any opinions?

Additionally, Anjelica Huston's role on the supernatural thriller series Medium landed a nomination for Guest Actress in a Drama Series, and the CW's Supernatural was recognized for Sound Editing.

The Emmys air Sunday, September 21.

RayRay - Great post. Good to see Dexter get some nods - it is a really good show. As for Battlestar Galactica...sigh...sci-fi gets even less respect than horror sometimes.
