The Emmys: By the TV Lass

After a short hiatus and a masters degree, the TV lass is back in action and ready to take on Fall Premiere season, which is about to get into full swing. 

I thought the best way to be welcomed back would be an Emmy competition.  Below I have added in my comments and my picks for the Emmy winner and where it actually should have went.  I am looking forward to Sunday night, and all the new shows I get to overload on my DVR.
