  • Go Anna, go True Blood! I hope to see them win ALL the statues they’re nominated for! And Val, I completely agree! The rest of the cast deserves more accolades as well!

  • Nikki

    Nelson Ellis should have definitely been nominated for supporting role. Second year now.

    • I second you, Nikki! Nelsan truly deserves a nomination and win!

  • Nia

    I agree with Val’s comments wholeheartedly.
    So many fine acting moments from all of the cast that should not have been ignored.
    I am grateful that we did recieve the two nods though.

    Better than nothing.

    Thanks AdoreBill

    Thanks for sharing that with us AdoreBill-we love that our TrueBlood has been nominated for a few Golden Globes!
    I have to add though,speaking for myself only,that there are other great actors and actresses that should be given a nod also,Stephen Moyer,Rutina Wesley,Nelson Ellis,Alexander Skarsgard to name just a few! After all,TrueBlood is winning kudos right and left-they need to mention some of the rest of the great cast!
    Oh well,I guess I am just greedy. I will take whatever they give!
