24 Season 6 Nominated for (only) 6 Emmys

Oh my, it looks like it's the beginning of the end. With critics calling this 24's lousiest season ever, it was only a matter of time that the award nominations started to dry up, too. What's worse for those in 24-ville... it just racked up its lowest amount of Emmy nominations ever – a whopping six.

24 Season 6 Emmy Nominations:

  1. Outstanding Guest Actress In A Drama Series (Jean Smart) *
  2. Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series (Kiefer Sutherland)
  3. Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score)
  4. Outstanding Sound Editing For A Series (Episode 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM) *
  5. Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (one-hour) (Episode 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM)
  6. Outstanding Stunt Coordination (Episode 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM)

That's it gang. No more directing nominations. No more writing nominations. No more casting nominations. There's even less technical nominations than usual. Is it any wonder why season 7 has already been scrapped and is starting over?

I’ve marked my predictions for 24’s winners with asteriks above. Kiefer won't win back-to-back Emmys this time, even though he did bite someone to death (that's acting). Jean Smart, who many say got snubbed last year, will win with her 20 minute guest appearance. There's not much else to talk about here since all 24 will get acclaimed for is having good stunt work and sound editing. But hey, you gotta hang your hat on something, right?

We’ll see how it does. Below are 24’s past nominations and wins.

I don't understand how can Kiefer be nominated. When you compare his acting in season 1 and 6, you'd agree that even steven seagal could do what he did in season 6.

There were several episodes in the middle of this season where Kiefer was in only one or two short scenes. He was basically sleepwalking through half the season.
