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.
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!
