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.
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
The simpler time of Mad Men proved to be dazzlingly complex
Lost 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)
Outstanding Actor, Drama
James Spader, Boston Legal
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
