This is more than you probably want know but I hate to see anything posted to Room 23 based on possible misinformation. (The LA Times ain't squat since Sam Zell took over but that's a whole other story.) Nothing regarding outstanding actors is written in stone as yet. Maybe their spies are correct about finalists but maybe not.
If you want to take a look at the recent Emmy info from the Times and from Tom O'Neil who posted the finalists:
Of course I want to see Lost take some gold but I have to be realistic too. Based on their "spy" reports, one of the panels (of about 30 people) only had a few that were under 50. Also from the same report: "I asked one voter about the ability to understand Lost. He said that he isn't a regular viewer but was very impressed and thought it had an arc that would be clear to at least a casual viewer. He wondered if some of the older non-viewers would understand or not."
So, take the emmy news you are getting with a spoonful of sketicism for at least a little while.
