thoughts on the categories that reywaS has any real knowledge of:


OUTSTANDING DRAMA
Boardwalk Empire
Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
Homeland
Mad Men

Tough category....Boardwalk Empire's season two was great and better than season one IMO. Breaking Bad's season four was great. Game of Thrones was great. I didn't see the latest season of Mad Men...I'm still on season three atm, but I know how good the show is. I've never watched Downtown Abbey. ANd I've heard very good things about Homeland...this will be a tough category to predict.


OUTSTANDING ACTOR IN A DRAMA
Hugh Bonneville, Downton Abbey
Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad
Michael C. Hall, Dexter
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Damian Lewis, Homeland

Wow...another toughie. Steve Buscemi was fantastic...as was Bryan Cranston like always. Michael C. Hall is always wonderful, though I still haven't caught season six yet....still on five. Jon Hamm is good as Don Draper. I don't know anything about Downtown Abbey or Homeland, so I can't say. Bryan Cranston has got to be the favorite going into it.



OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA
Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad
Giancarlo Esposito, Breaking Bad
Brendan Coyle, Downton Abbey
Jim Carter, Downton Abbey
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Jared Harris, Mad Men

Gus vs Jesse Pinkman vs Tyrion Lannister????!!!!??? One of those three definitely deserves it. I say give it to Giancarlo Esposito based purely on the fact that Dinklage and Paul already have Emmy's. This Downtown Abbey must be pretty damned good....anyone tell me anything about it? Should I give it a try?


OUTSTANDING COMEDY
The Big Bang Theory
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Girls
Modern Family
30 Rock
Veep

My personal choice would probably be Modern Family or Curb...Veep was surprisingly good, too. I don't like 30 Rock. Big Bang is always funny. WOuldn't be shocked if Modern Family won again...it's agood show.

OUTSTANDING ACTOR IN A COMEDY
Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
Don Cheadle, House of Lies
Louis CK, Louie
Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men (*his first time in Lead race in years)
Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm
Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory

Alec Baldwin in 30 Rock has just gotten stale IMO. He's not funny anymore. Louis CK deserves his nomination...Louie is a very funny show. I think Larry David deserves the win here...he is very underrated as an comedic actor.



OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY
Ed O’Neill, Modern Family
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family
Ty Burrell, Modern Family
Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family
Max Greenfield, New Girl
Bill Hader, Saturday Night Live

One of the Modern Family guys...they are all funny IMO. I give the edge to either Ty Burrell or Eric Stonestreet.


OUTSTANDING REALITY SHOW HOST
Tom Bergeron, Dancing With the Stars
Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance
Phil Keoghan, The Amazing Race
Ryan Seacrest, American Idol
Betty White, Betty White’s Off Their Rockers

How can Jeff Probst not be nominated????? This category has zero cred. Probst puts all these guys to shame.



OUTSTANDING VARIETY, MUSIC, OR COMEDY SERIES
The Colbert Report
The Daily Show With Jon Stewart
Jimmy Kimmel Live
Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
Real Time With Bill Maher
Saturday Night Live

Bill Maher is a moron. At least Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are actually funny. Watch an episode of Real Time and tell me it's funny....I dare you.

I'm going to bold who I think will will (but also who I want to win...okay, more who I want to win; I haven't watched a ton of these shows--seen more of the comedies than the dramas.)

OUTSTANDING DRAMA
Boardwalk Empire
Breaking Bad
Downton Abbey
Game of Thrones
Homeland

Downton Abbey is seriously one of the best TV shows ever in my opinion. So beautiful, heartbreaking, heartwarming...I feel so connected to the family on this show.

OUTSTANDING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA

Wow, 4 from Modern Family up against each other! Tough competition because they are all so funny. But I think Eric Stonestreet is the best. He consistently makes me laugh the hardest.

I love both Stewart and Colbert. Love Bill Maher too. But gonna go with Colbert on this one.

OUTSTANDING TV MINISERIES OR MOVIE
American Horror Story
Game Change
Hatfields & McCoys
Hemingway and Gellhorn
Luther
Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia

No idea, I picked randomly. I liked Idris Elba in The Wire so Luther got my vote.

Kevin Costner, Hatfields & McCoys
Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock: A Scandal in Belgravia
Idris Elba, Luther

Ashley Judd, Missing
Nicole Kidman, Hemingway and Gellhorn
Julianne Moore, Game Change
Emma Thompson, The Song of Lunch

Picked randomly again because I've never seen any of these, but I love Emma Thompson.

I gotta say, it makes me so proud that there are two alumni from my alma mater up for nominations again this year! Glenn Close and Jon Stewart!!! Yeah!!

I honestly think Modern Family is waaaaaaay overrated. It's still deserves to be nominated, just not take up half of the spots. I'm surprised the producers didn't just resubmit an episode under Drama. Also, where the :censored: is Community? No Best Show, no Best Actor/Actress, nothing except a Screenwriting Nom. While Modern Family has four nominations in One category! I think that Modern Family perfected the Family Sitcom, while Community made another completely new, original, and hilarious genre. My 2 cents. Rant over.

Just come here to say CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM is like the best show ever and LARRY DAVID should win every prize to comedy actor out there. He is not funny, he is HILARIOUS.
