Emmy Snubs & Surprises
Every year, the Emmy nominations bring surprises and snubs, and this year is no different. "Family Guy's" nomination in the comedy series category is perhaps the biggest Cinderella story of all since once upon a time it was canceled not once, but twice by FOX, before the network resurrected the cartoon after strong DVD sales and cable rerun viewing. And even though the Academy gives much love to cable programming, newcomer "True Blood" and the now defunct "Battlestar Galactica" are conspicuously missing from the major acting categories. Check out who received some well-deserved, often overdue recognition and who got overlooked.

'Family Guy,' Outstanding Comedy Series
Every year, the Emmy nominations bring surprises and snubs, and this year is no different. Check out who received some well-deserved, often overdue recognition and who got overlooked.
Surprise or snub?: Surprise. Apparently, only competing against other animated programs is for chumps since "Family Guy" is hanging with the big dogs, going against the live-action comic stylings of "30 Rock" and "The Office." It's been a Stone Age since an animated program, "The Flinstones" has had this distiction, and even "The Simpsons," which has been on for two decades never got this honor. Yes, Stewie Griffin will indeed take over the world.
