LOS ANGELES — The five “Desperate Housewives’’ were shut out of nominations for the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, which signal the red-carpet season in Hollywood.
This year’s crop, announced Thursday, barely managed to register on the style radar. Fashion favorites such as Evangeline Lilly of “Lost” and “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo also failed to garner nominations.
Still, television newcomer Kyra Sedgwick scored a lead actress nod, as did veterans Debra Messing and Geena Davis. With the networks largely devoid of sartorially elite sitcoms or couture-inspired dramas, the focus actually might be on the performances. The awards will air at 8 p.m. Aug. 27 on NBC.
