Modern Family, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, and The Office continue to dominate the comedy categories. And joining them in the drama nominations are naturally Breaking Bad, Homeland, Mad Men, Downton Abbey, Boardwalk Empire, and The Newsroom.

Lifetime's "Steel Magnolias" remake dominates the list of this year's NAACP Image Award nominees with seven nods, while "Django Unchained" and "Beasts of the Southern Wild" picked up four each in film categories, and "Grey's Anatomy" and "Treme" nabbed four in TV.
Designed to honor "the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film," the annual Image nominations reliably offer up some real headscratchers: Tyler Perry is a best actor contender for "Alex Cross"? Amber Riley is a lead actress on "Glee"? The critically acclaimed "Middle of Nowhere" isn't worth a mention as outstanding independent film?
But there's also welcome, and rare, recognition for HBO's "Treme," plus well-deserved nods across the board for "Django" and "Beasts."
A partial list of this year's nominees in the film and TV categories follows. For a complete list, including music and literary categories, visit the Image Awards official site. »

Shakira will be replacing Christina Aguilera during the fourth season of The Voice. But don't worry, the show's producers assure fans, like me, that Aguilera and her co-host Cee Lo Green (who will be replaced by Usher) will return to the show for future judging. (And yes, that is my hand holding up Shakira's umbrella.)

You can’t keep a good nurse down.

Chicago – Emmy-winning “Nurse Jackie” starts its fourth season and the highly-acclaimed “The Big C” joins it for its third on Sunday nights starting tonight, April 8, 2012. While both shows have been frustrating at times over their runs, it’s impossible to argue with the talent that Edie Falco and Laura Linney bring to these shows, respectively. I have a clear favorite but it’s nice to have both ladies back on the most crowded night on TV.
On that note — it’s hard to believe that Falco, Linney, and Jeremy Irons are on one network on one night and that network is Not the clear critical favorite for the evening. While “The Big C,” “Nurse Jackie,” and “The Borgias” will have their fans, it’s not a lineup that compares to AMC’s “Mad Men” and “The Killing” Or HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” “Girls,” and “Veep” (the latter two are »

Edie Falco's drug-addicted titular character faces three seasons worth of consequences when Showtime's Nurse Jackie returns Sunday for its fourth season. With her back against the wall personally and professionally in the Season 3 finale, Jackie escaped both crisis when Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) tossed a urine test that would have revealed Jackie's addiction and her husband, Kevin (Dominic Fumusa), confessed to his affair instead of knowledge of his wife's romp with Eddie (Paul Schulze).

For the two-plus seasons I watched "Nurse Jackie," it was a show with a tremendous lead performance by Edie Falco, a bunch of well-etched supporting characters played by Merritt Wever, Anna Deavere Smith and Peter Facinelli (among others) and a reliably black comic sensibility that could deftly turn on a dime for more serious moment. But it was also a show that, like Jackie — a painkiller addict concealing her addiction, an extramarital affair and any number of other secrets — stubbornly, proudly in denial of the need to change things up even a little. Consequences seemed to hurtle at Jackie »

Last time we left Jackie (Emmy winner Edie Falco), she just told her cheating husband (Dominic Fumusa) to pack his bags, and Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith) had thrown out Jackie's urine sample to keep her best nurse's drug habit from going public. And that was just in the last two minutes of the season-three finale. Finally, season four is just around the corner and we've got an exclusive first look at a new trailer. Not only is Jackie headed to rehab, but someone is knocked up… The mom-to-be isn't Jackie, but her best friend Dr. O'Hara! So who's the father? We know she's slept with Sam (Arjun Gupta) in the past, but O'Hara (Eve Best) could have easily just found a donor »
