Neil Gets Emmy Nod!


A few weeks back, I wrote a post here about the lack of praise given to gay actors playing straight.  I'm thrilled to report that the amazing Neil Patrick Harris has just nabbed his second Emmy nomination for his awesome performance as a womanizer on "How I Met Your Mother."  Way to go, Neil!  By the way, this is Neil's second nomination,  and I for one hope he wins, although between Jeremy Piven and Rainn Wilson, he's got some stiff competition.

Other gay notable noms went to Cynthia Nixon, for her guest stint on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," and Kathy Griffin for "My Life on the D-List."   Speaking of "D List," who are we fooling?  Kathy has definitely elevated herself to at least B List at this point in time and I'm crossing my fingers that should she win, she'll top last year's "Jesus can suck it" speech.
