'Flight of the Conchords,' Outstanding Comedy Series

Surprise or snub?: Surprise. You would think this show, which revolves around strange and off beat musical numbers, might be too quirky for the Academy, but it seems they're becoming a bit more hip with each passing year. Along with a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, lead actor Jemaine Clement also received his first nod. Wonder how his co-lead Bret McKenzie feels about that.HBO
