The Emmys Love Sci-Fi

Cylons

The list of nominations for 2007 Emmy Awards has been released. And — none too surprisingly, given the surplus of sci-fi on television nowadays — there’s a lot of recognition of the genre.

Here’s the overview:

• Outstanding Direction for a Drama Series: Battlestar Galactica, Heroes and Lost.

• Outstanding Drama Series: Heroes.

• Outstanding Visual Effects For A Series: Battlestar Galactica, Eureka and Heroes.

• Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series: Masi Oka in Heroes, Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson in Lost and, though not sci-fi, The Shat himself for Boston Legal.

• Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series: Battlestar Galactica and Lost.

Certainly some good choices, but I tend to doubt it’s going to be a genre sweep. I’m linking them a lot today, because they’re great, but SF Signal has some analysis of the nominations if you’re so inclined.
