Looks like our campaign story to get David Boreanaz (Booth) an Emmy just might have worked! The nomination ballot for the 2011 Emmy Awards was just released, and David is listed for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series as well as Outstanding Director for “The Blackout in the Blizzard.” Hey David —Don’t forget to thank us in your acceptance speech!

He wasn’t the only Fox regular to get called out alongside some of TV’s greatest performers: Emily Deschanel (Brennan) could potentially be nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, and TJ Thyne (Hodgins) for Outstanding Supporting Actor.

Unfortunately, all we can do is cross our fingers and wait for the nominees to be announced on July 14 because voting is only open to members of the TV Academy. But for those of you who really like a surprise, tune in on September 18 when the winners will be chosen live on Fox. Glee’s Jane Lynch will host the show.
