Below are my predictions for the major categories of the Television Emmy Awards being broadcast Sunday.
1. BEST DRAMA SERIES:
This is a tough category for me, because I don't watch any of these shows. I saw the first couple episodes of Boardwalk Empire. It was OK, but I didn't really keep up. I do like Steve Buscemi though... not so much in this show, but he was amazing in the movie, Fargo.
2. BEST COMEDY SERIES:
Modern Family cast
This is also a tough category, because I like several of these shows. Normally, I would pick 30 Rock, but I didn't like it as much last year as Modern Family. It kept up the quality in its sophomore year.
3. BEST DRAMA SERIES ACTRESS:
I did watch several episodes of Harry's Law, and I thought it was not so good. I do love Kathy Bates though and I don't know anything about the other shows.
4. BEST DRAMA ACTOR:
This is just because I like Steve Buscemi. I used to love Michael C. Hall on Six Feet Under also.
5. BEST COMEDY ACTRESS:
This was also a tough call because I like four of these nominees. Shane is rooting for Martha Plimpton, but I think Laura Linney is amazing in the Big C, just like most things she is in. It isn't really a situation comedy in the traditional sense, so she probably won't win. She should though. I also love Edie Falco in Nurse Jackie and Tina Fey in 30 Rock.
6. BEST COMEDY ACTOR:
Of course Alec Baldwin will probably win again, but Louis C.K. deserves to win for Louie. There is an amazing scene where a police officer who has just saved his life asks Louie to kiss him to show his gratitude. I thought it was one of the best things on.
7. BEST MOVIE/MINISERIES:
Downton Abbey is the only one of these I watched. It was really good.
I am usually wrong about these things more than half the time, but so what. Who cares? Who do you think deserves to win?
