If Jennifer Carpenter doesn't get an Emmy nomination next year for the final season of "Dexter," which came to a close on Showtime just as the prime-time Emmys were airing on CBS, there really is no reason to have these awards. For years, "Dexter" has been treated as something of a one-man show, and certainly Michael C. Hall's portrayal of the world's first Serial Killer for Justice deserved the attention, and nominations, it received. Based on the Jeff Lindsay novel series, the show premiered in 2006 and no one knew quite what they were seeing.

Thursday morning, after the news broke that Netflix had received 14 Emmy nominations -- joining the ranks of broadcast and cable -- the company's chief content officer was quoted as saying , “In a way, it solidifies that television is television, no matter what pipe brings it to the screen.” The operative phrase there is “in a way,” though. It's true that many aspects of television remain the same when TV takes an online form: the episodic structure, to name just one. But to claim that television on Netflix is the same as television on, well, my television, simplifies the matter.

More and more young people are accessing TV content on their computers, iPads or cellphones. Somebody is going to profit from this and, right now, Netflix seems well positioned to be the chosen one. Having entered the high-stakes business of creating original entertainment programs, Netflix has been rewarded with 14 Emmy nominations this year.

Hey, wait a sec, is this the Oscars or the Emmys? Several big-screen stars -- including Kevin Costner, Nicole Kidman, Clive Owen, Julianne Moore, Emma Thompson, Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates -- earned Emmy nominations Thursday morning for their work on the small screen. They've all either won or been nominated for an Academy Award in years past. But on Thursday, they were at the center of the TV universe, a shift that underscores the medium's growing appeal to film stars who hunger for meaty roles that are harder to come by in youth-oriented Hollywood.

After being dropped by the History Channel and avoided like the plague by other networks until finding a home on the tiny ReelzChannel, the controversial miniseries "The Kennedys" got some vindication Thursday in the form of 10 Emmy nominations. "I was surprised," said Joel Surnow, the executive producer of the eight-hour program. "I frankly didn't think we'd be recognized for lots of reasons, none of them having to do with the quality of the show. " Besides getting a nomination for outstanding miniseries or movie, the project also earned nods for Greg Kinnear and Barry Pepper, who portrayed brothers John and Robert Kennedy, respectively, and for Tom Wilkinson in his role as family patriarch Joe Kennedy.

Connie Britton was in the shower, all suds-upped, when she gathered she'd received her fourth Emmy nomination.  “I had one leg shaved! I kept hearing my phone, and I jumped out of the shower,” Britton said. “Everyone's been so excited and supportive.”   Britton was speaking by phone from the “Nashville” set, during her first day of shooting season two. It was an appropriate place to spend her celebratory morning, if just because she feels the award belongs to everyone around her. “I always feel this way with a nomination - everything I ever do is such a collaboration, every nomination I fully share with my cast and crew.
