More Gilmore.

I found an interesting article on news.yahoo.com today. Here's the link, if you want to read the full story (which I would recommend doing). Of course, I'm going to post the highlights right here.

We have two words for Emmy voters and they're not "Desperate Housewives." Think "Gilmore Girls."

If the WB series doesn't — finally — make a substantial dent in the television nominations announced Thursday, we're going to write a guidebook for voters, "Emmys for Dummies."

"Gilmore Girls" has been ostracized since its 2000 debut, save a single nomination for makeup. It's the poster child for Emmy abuse.

A sophisticated confection about a single mom and daughter, the series is smart, funny and touching and features a cast consistently up to the challenging material.

So, for starters, how about giving star Lauren Graham, who's been nominated for Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards, a comedy series actress bid? Kelly Bishop's version of a grandmother of steel is overdue for a supporting actress nomination.

Word, word, and double-word. I know some of you Gilmore-haters think that the two main Gilmore Girls talk too fast (and I wonder what would happen if you caught a scene that features Paris Gellar on a rampage...your heads would explode), but seriously, y'all...best show ever.

And Lauren Graham really is the best actress on network television. She needs this Emmy. Did you know she had a role in The Pacifier? That's Vin Diesel, people. Emmy nominations = better movie offers.

The Emmy nominations are Thursday. If Lauren Graham isn't nominated for Best Actress, I'm going to shave my head in protest. Stay tuned.

I'm with you, Sport. And don't forget Miss Kelly Bishop. Homegirl deserves a nomination, too.

I looked over the nominations and I don't think I saw her name. I think Blood Ray has clippers you can borrow. Sorry about your girls missing out again.

Yeah. It's some bullshit.
