No Emmy Love for 'The Wire'

No surprises out of Hollywood this morning...

From CNN:

...HBO's "The Wire" -- which concluded its fifth and final season this year -- once again came up empty in the best drama nominations. It did receive one nod, for writing.

The series, though much praised and dissected by a hard-core group of fans, has received little recognition from the Emmys, with just one nomination -- also for writing -- in 2005.

Of course, the writing nomination doesn't really mean anything. This is another example of one America denying that another America exists. Read my article on why 'Wire' creater David Simon thinks the show never got the high ratings of other HBO programs received.
