Emmy Nominees: Best Directing in a Comedy Series

My predictions: 2/6, choosing the wrong "Entourage" and "30 Rock" episodes and "Desperate Housewives" and missing "Extras" and "The Office".
My ballot: 1/5 "My Musical"

I am thrilled to see "One Day in the Valley" from Entourage here. Such a great episode that perfectly captures the show (which clearly worked as it got the show a nod for Best Comedy Series). The Ugly Betty "Pilot" is no surprise, and it is pleasantly counteracted by the wonderful "My Musical" episode of Scrubs. As with the comedy writing nominees, what are Extras, The Office, and 30 Rock thinking? "Orlando Bloom" (Extras) was lackluster, as was "Gay Witch Hunt" (The Office). "The Break-Up" is fine for 30 Rock, but nowhere near as good as "Hardball".

Who will win? I would be happy with "Scrubs" but I worry that "Ugly Betty" might rear its ugly head and pull off an undeserved victory.
