The 2009 Emmy nominations were announced this morning and some of our favorite celebs and shows are in this year's race.
It was such a hoot to see Grey's Anatomy's Chandra Wilson and The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons announce the noms -- especially when their names and pictures popped up on the screens behind them. They were genuinely surprised.
Other surprises? Jennifer Aniston and Betty White are going head-to-head in the Outstanding Guest Performance in a Comedy Series category. I'd pay to see that fight.
