The Emmys are a different beast than the Oscars, as there are not 20 other awards given out to the same batch of nominees for the 3 months leading up to them. It is much more difficult and fun to predict these winners and the possibilities seem endless before your hopes are shot down. Will the Modern Family spell finally be broken? Will Breaking Bad finally win for what may have been its worst batch of episodes in 3 years (still fantastic and arguably better than the other nominees)? Will Louis C.K. parlay his record breaking nomination haul to an acting or producing win? Did Emmy voters love the final 30 Rock season as much as the rest of us? Will they acknowledge the moronic lack of nominations for Arrested Development’s revival?
As usual, I will let my own personal bias sway me when I don’t think there is a lock to win, which may be true for every single category this year. So go forth and enjoy my meaningless commentary on a meaningless awards show that I might not even be watching in real time due to Breaking Bad’s penultimate episode.
