SG on TV: SG's Emmy Picks

I'm getting tired of talking politics 24-7. At least for the moment. So let's talk about some really important issues--the Emmys.

First off, how did they sneak up on me? It seems just yesterday the noms came out and I tried to make a predictions post and the damn Blogger software f'ed it up.

Second of all, I wonder what Mr. CVD is doing Sunday night.

Anyhow, for the much anticipated SG Emmy Picks. There are two winners in each category--or at least up to two. I note who should win and who will win. Oftentimes I don't get my way.

And for those Emmy buffs that read this--I know it's not all the categories, but let's be honest--no one gives a shit about sound editing.


Outstanding Comedy
We were once again rocked by 30 Rock, the funniest show on TV

Curb Your Enthusiasm
The Office Should win
30 Rock Will win
Two and a Half Men

Outstanding Drama
The simpler time of Mad Men proved to be dazzlingly complex

Mad Men Will Win
Tie for should win (Lost managed to take a sinking ship and turn it back into a can't-miss show...I mean, who wasn't talking about the Island disappearing and who was in the coffin?!?!)
Dexter Tie for should win (Dexter is an amazing show I discovered this year and it managed to stay away from the Sophomore Slump--that alone deserves an Emmy)
Boston Legal

Outstanding Actor, Drama
James Spader, Boston Legal

Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad

Hugh Laurie, House
Jon Hamm, Mad Men Will win--the Emmys are going to make love to this show

Gabriel Byrne, In Treatment

Outstanding Actress, Drama

Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer
Sally Field, Brothers & Sisters
Glenn Close, Damages Will win and probably should--she's taken a show to new heights allegedly

Outstanding Supporting Actor, Comedy

Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men
