So I'm annoyed. I'm a huge HBO fan when it comes to watching TV. My favorite show is True Blood. I plan my Sunday evenings around it. So When the nominations for the 63rd Annual Prime time Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning, conspicuously missing from the list for best outstanding drama series was "True Blood."

Despite critical acclaim and rabid fan bases, the show did not join nominees "Mad Men," "Boardwalk Empire," "The Good Wife," "Friday Night Lights," "Dexter" and "Game of Thrones" in that category.I was glad to see Boardwalk Empire in there, another on of my favorites.

Another show that received a heavy drumbeat of praise from critics but no best drama nomination was AMC's new crime/mystery series "The Killing." AMC shows garnered 29 nominations in total.

HBO scored a whopping 104 nominations. Which shows you where the quality TV is. But acclaimed drama "Treme" , my wife's favorite, was again overlooked for best drama series.
