Emmy Competition 2012

Alright, my competitive streak has hit me and I'm here to hopefully be the foil and pick more winners than The TV Lass.  On Sunday night I will be switching between the Patriots game (go Pats!) and the Emmys - thank god for DVR!  Granted I don't watch as much tv as she does - but here are my kind of educated and totally emotional picks:

Drama Series

"Breaking Bad"

"Boardwalk Empire"

"Downton Abbey" Downton could win but is it really deserved for it's weak second season?

"Game of Thrones"

"Homeland"  My pick - but would be happy with Mad Men winning too.

"Mad Men"

Actress in a Drama

Claire Danes, "Homeland"  - My pick.  She was amazing as Carrie and Emmy voters have liked her for years.

Elisabeth Moss, "Mad Men" - Doesn't really deserve, she was barely on the show after she left SCDP

Glenn Close, "Damages"

Julianna Margulies, "The Good Wife"

Kathy Bates, "Harry's Law"

Michelle Dockery, "Downton Abbey" - Spoiler?

Actor in a Drama

Bryan Cranston, "Breaking Bad"

Damian Lewis, "Homeland" - My pick, and I can't wait for season 2.  Even the President watches - Emmy voters will award the talented new-comer.

Jon Hamm, "Mad Men"

Hugh Bonneville, "Downton Abbey"

Michael C. Hall, "Dexter"

Steve Buscemi, "Boardwalk Empire"

Supporting Actress in a Drama

Maggie Smith, "Downton Abbey" - I have a feeling that Maggie will win, but I would love for Christina Hendricks to win.

Christina Hendricks, "Mad Men"

Christine Baranski, "The Good Wife"

Archie Panjabi, "The Good Wife"

Joanne Froggatt, "Downton Abbey" - Mrs. Byaaates (I just love saying Byaaaates like she does.)

Anna Gunn, "Breaking Bad"

Supporting Actor in a Drama

Giancarlo Esposito, "Breaking Bad"

Aaron Paul, "Breaking Bad"

Peter Dinklage, "Game of Thrones"

Brendan Coyle, "Downton Abbey"

Jim Carter, "Downton Abbey"

Jared Harris, "Mad Men" - I hope Jared wins, his last two episodes were really great.

Comedy Series - Let me rant for a second:  How on EARTH were Louie and Parks and Rec not nominated??  They are the best comedies on TV!  This is ridiculous...

"Curb Your Enthusiasm"

"Girls" - I guess this is my pick, although it is undeserved.  Louie should absolutely be the winner of best comedy.


"Modern Family"

"The Big Bang Theory"

"30 Rock"

Actress in a Comedy

Amy Poehler, "Parks and Recreation" - I hope that she's finally rewarded, and to make up for not nominating P&R for best comedy.  I don't see it happening though.

Edie Falco, "Nurse Jackie"

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "Veep" - Emmys love Julia Louis Dreyfus - she is my pick.

Lena Dunham, "Girls"

Melissa McCarthy, "Mike & Molly"

Tina Fey, "30 Rock"

Zooey Deschanel, "New Girl" 

Actor in a Comedy

Jon Cryer, "Two And A Half Men"

Alec Baldwin, "30 Rock"

Don Cheadle, "House of Lies"

Jim Parsons, "The Big Bang Theory"

Larry David, "Curb Your Enthusiasm"

Louis C.K., "Louie" - No one else on this list deserves it half as much as Louis CK.

Supporting Actress in a Comedy

Julie Bowen, "Modern Family"

Sofia Vergara, "Modern Family"

Kristen Wiig, "Saturday Night Live" - My choice, especially now that she has left the show.

Kathryn Joosten, "Desperate Housewives"

Merritt Wever, "Nurse Jackie"

Mayim Bialik, "Big Bang Theory" 

Supporting Actor in a Comedy

Ty Burrell, "Modern Family"

Ed O'Neill, "Modern Family"

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, "Modern Family"

Eric Stonestreet, "Modern Family"

Max Greenfield, "The New Girl" - The choice for Emmy voters who want to "look cool"?  I hope it's one of the non-Modern Family guys.

Bill Hader, "Saturday Night Live" 

Reality Competition Program

"So You Think You Can Dance"

"The Amazing Race" - My choice again - the best competition show on TV.

"Dancing With The Stars"

"Top Chef"

"The Voice"

Host for Reality Competition Program

Cat Deeley "So You Think You Can Dance"

Phil Keoghan "The Amazing Race" - My choice

Ryan Seacrest "American Idol"

Betty White "Betty White's Off Their Rockers"

Tom Bergeron "Dancing With The Stars"

Movie or Miniseries Series

"American Horror Story"

"Game Change" - My choice - especially in the year of another presidential election.

"Hatfields & McCoys"


"Sherlock: A Scandal In Belgravia"

"Hemingway & Gellhorn"
