Mad Men and House, FTW. I'd be thrilled with either of them winning the Drama and Lead Actor categories. I'm pulling for Hugh a bit more, though, because he's longer overdue for an Emmy win.

I'm rooting for Mad Men, The Office, Flight of the Conchords, and 30 Rock here... I wish Always Sunny and Battlestar Galacticagot some representation, too, but that's life.

True, but he deserves something. If the Grammys can award the aged for being alive over someone who actually made a good record, Laurie deserves a pat on the back for turning in a set of performances that's only slightly below his previously stratospheric standards.

I deleted the guest acting awards since those were already handed out last week. Also, Best Reality Show went to Kathy Griffin's My Life on the D List. The Simpsons took home outstanding half hour animated series while South Park took home the award for animated program one hour or longer for its "Imaginationland" three parter.

Yes! Although I'm going to be flipping between the Emmys and the Packers game on Sunday Night Football.

I'm rooting for 30 Rock to win everything it's nominated for.

Woot! Didn't realize it was on tonight! My picks for categories I actually care about:

Outstanding Drama Series
Lost


Outstanding Comedy Series
The Office
30 Rock
Curb Your Enthusiasm

Don't make me pick! Although if forced to, I suppose the order I would pick them in is as above.


Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
Michael C. Hall, Dexter


Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
Steve Carell, The Office
Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock

These are both pretty equal to me.


Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
Tina Fey, 30 Rock


Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie
Ricky Gervais, Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale


Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
Michael Emerson, Lost

If Emerson doesn't win this after the season he had, there's no justice in the world.


Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Rainn Wilson, The Office



Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
Amy Poehler, Saturday Night Live

I think this is a bizarre nomination in this category, but she's the closest I'd come to wanting a winner. Don't they have a comedy/variety show category?


Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series
Shelley Berman, Curb Your Enthusiasm
Will Arnett, 30 Rock

I'd rather Arnett win, but I'd be good with Berman, too.


Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series
Elaine Stritch, 30 Rock

Even if I didn't think she was the best in the category (I do), I'd still want her to win to see what crazy shit she'd say in her speech.


Outstanding Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program
Jon Stewart, host; 80th Annual Academy Awards
Stephen Colbert, host; The Colbert Report
David Letterman, host; Late Show With David Letterman
Tina Fey, host; Saturday Night Live

I'd be fine with any of these.


Outstanding Reality Program
Antiques Roadshow



Outstanding Reality-Competition Program
The Amazing Race


Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program
Jeff Probst, Survivor


Outstanding Made for Television Movie
Extras: The Extra Special Series Finale


Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series
The Colbert Report


Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series
The Office, "Dinner Party"

Actually, I'd be okay with any of these other than Pushing Daisies, were it not for the fact that Dinner Party was one of the most awesome, tense, funny, and uncomfortable half hours of television I've ever experienced.

Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program
The Colbert Report
The Daily Show With Jon Stewart
