Oh my God! The Emmys! Researchresearchresearch... Watchingwatchingwatching...

DING! Okay, here we go!

Lead Actress in a Comedy- Tina Fey, 30 Rock

Lead Actor in a Comedy- Steve Carell, The Office. It's his last year.

Supporting Actress in a Comedy- Betty White, Hot in Cleveland. Because she could die. It's their last chance.

Supporting Actor in a Comedy- Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men. Because they're going to want to stick it to Charlie Sheen.

Comedy Series- Modern Family. I have never seen this show. But its nominations are all over the place.*

Lead Actress in a Drama- Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men. I thought she did a great job last season. I'd really like to see her win.[ref] Go Peggy! [/ref]

Lead Actor in a Drama- Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire. Sure. Why not? I haven't had a chance to see this yet (or Justified. Or Friday Night Lights...).

Supporting Actress in a Drama- Margo Martindale, Justified. I heard an interview with her on NPR. It was really interesting. Although Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) was great this year, too. But I don't think she'll win.*

Supporting Actor in a Drama- Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones. He's like the only thing I hear about that show. And people will not shut up about him. And again, John Slattery (Mad Men) did a great job too. But he won't get it either.*

Drama Series- Friday Night Lights. It's their last year. And we should probably let them know that at least a few people watched it.[ref] Sniff... [/ref]

Actress in a Miniseries or Movie- Jean Marsh, Upstairs/Downstairs. Established franchise? Check. PBS? Check. British accent? Check and mate.

Actor in a Miniseries or Movie- William Hurt, Too Big to Fail.

Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie- Paul Giamatti, Too Big to Fail. Because he needs yet another acting award. And the resemblance between him and Ben Bernanke is just uncanny...

Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie- Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey. Because it's Maggie Smith. [ref] Professor McGonagall for you philistines out there... [/ref]*

Miniseries or Movie- Too Big to Fail.

Variety, Music or Comedy Series- The Colbert Report. Stephen, I think it's finally your year. (And Barry Manilow isn't nominated this time...)

Reality/Competition Program- So You Think You Can Dance. Because I think I can predict this category.

Host for Reality/Competition Program- Congratulations, Phil Keoghan, The Amazing Race, you are host number 1! Here, have this statue.

Update: 4/18! Woot! A new low!
