Who will win. I am from 5 and a half hours in the future. Place your bets now.

The Emmys refusal to recognize Community and Cougartown is absurd, so I'm refusing to recognize their awards.

Then I'm afraid your write-in vote has no chance :)

Anyway, for best drama and best comedy categories, I think it's ultimately Friday Night Lights and Modern Family, respectively. For Best Drama, I think there's a good chance that voters won't go for Mad Men because it won many times in the past, and that Game of Thrones is still a bit untested as a fantasy series (the same curse that many people fear affected the first two LoTR movies in the Oscars). Boardwalk Empire is the closest on that list of pulling an upset, I believe. Friday Night Lights wins partly as a swan song, partly because of being a more consistent critical darling.

For Best Comedy, while I think Parks & Rec is the superior show, I think Modern Family will win. It's a safe bet with plenty of mainstream appeal, moreso than Big Bang Theory. The Office and Glee are also sentimental favorites but the overall quality of their seasons varied quite a bit this year. 30 Rock is a former safe bet, but in a sense it's the Mad Men of the category, in that winning often in the past may hinder them now.

Anything but Glee should win. Actually, I don't get Big Bang Theory at all, and it's opposite Community, so I really don't want them to win either. Parks and Rec or Modern Family are most the deserving. I only recently started watching the latter. I was amazed at how good it actually was. At least Community got an Emmy for the Christmas special. But it is an absolute crime that no other recognition. At the *very least,* Chevy Chase should be up for supporting actor.

I hope Ed O'Neil wins.

I don't think Game of Thrones best drama will win this year. It's probably going to be Boardwalk Empire or Mad Men. Having won before isn't always a hindrance with Emmy voters. Frasier won how many freakin' times? Outside chance for Friday Night Lights, as a parting gift.

Peter Dinklage is practically a shoe-in for best supporting actor.


The Pillars of the Earth wasn't that good. Other than techncial awards and maybe a few actors, I don't think it should be nominated. I think it's just there because it was such a big production.

I predict Kate Winslet will bring home an Emmy to put next to her Oscar.

Lara Linney is basically Queen of the Emmys. Wouldn't be surprised if she racks up another.

Betty White owned the past year. And let's face it, she doesn't have too many "there's always next year"s left. She'll win.

As much as I love Justified, I think best dramatic actor is Steve Buscemi's to lose. It's a more high profile show, and a more obviously great (not in a disparaging way) role. Olyphaunt is a great actor, though I think the first season was actually a bit better for him, he was sadly overlooked.

The majority of nominations are for shows I don't care about. But I will be pulling for the Justified and Big Bang Theory nominees, as they're pretty much the only shows among the lists that I like.

Ty Burell deserved that win.

I must have gotten a bogus list because they didn't even mention Amy Pholer.

Great opening number by Jane Lynch btw.

Wait was that lead or supporting actress.

Jared
09-18-2011, 05:53 PM
That was funny. I wonder if Amy running up at the mention of her name was spontaneous, or something the ladies planned.

Peter Dinklage is amazing on Game of Thrones. He deserved that Emmy.

I know either last year or the year before they all wore funny glasses except for one one the actresses.

Congrats to Modern Family for going 4 for 4 in the opening for catagories.


Yeah that was supporting actress that Bowen won. Pholer was nominated for lead which went to Melissa.

Congrats to Jason Katims and Kyle Chandler. It should have been the trifecta.

Did parson's win surprise anyone?

If FNL wins, it won't be as a parting gift. It'll be because it's one of the greatest dramas in the history of television.

Aye. A pity it wasn't properly recognized by the Emmys in years past, but then again, the show got along without them just fine.

Wellp, I stand corrected about Mad Men. Here's something worth retweeting, from TV critic Phil Rosenthal: The #Emmys have somehow managed to make a Mad Men win for best drama seem like an upset.

Still, congrats to Mad Men. I'll be tuning in for the next season, as always.

Did I miss guest actress in a comedy series? or did they not show it. Congrats to Modern Family for winning all five catagories they were nominated in. Shame on Ariel Winter's parents for letting her wear that dress. She's only fifteen people.

Jared
09-18-2011, 08:26 PM
I didn't see the dress in question. But Julianna Marguiles's was strikingly god-awful. I'm sure it'll top a lot of Worst lists on the fashion shows. For that matter, Drew Barrymore's horrid as well. [/gay] :)

Yeah my sister in law hated it as well.

I was wrong she's 13 and she showed about as much cleavage as Christina Hendricks. It was pretty bad.

My friend called it the Elementary School Art Project dress. Coincidentally, after she won, Kyle Chandler won for playing a high school football coach.

Boy that dress is bad but why in the world are we talking about fashion.:confused:

Because that was part of the show, too? After all, that's why there's an hour long pre-Awards show.

A boob window for a 13 year old does seem kinda wrong just as a matter of principle. But it's not really showing a whole lot.

And stop complaining about the 13 year old in the dress, where are we? Iran?

Kyle Chandler winning just my day maybe even week. I knew he deserved it but never thought hed actually get it. I was over all really happy with the results. I dont watch Mad Men so that wasnt great but I wasnt surprised at it winning either.

Jared
09-19-2011, 05:14 PM
It's funny, Kyle Chandler seemed genuinely at a loss for words, because he really didn't expect to win. I was pulling for him to end with "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose!" I don't even watch the show but I wanted to hear it.

Jon Hamm, Hugh Laurie and Michael C. Hall all probably thought "there's no Cranston, now this is my year!".

Deserved victories for Mad Men and Margo Martindale.

Oh, and HALFMAN! HALFMAN! HALFMAN!

Kyle Chandler and Margo Martindale winning made sitting through the show worthwhile. So glad to see such deserving actors finally get recognized.

Its sad Michael C Hall loses to an weaker actor because he doesnt play football coach. He has won Golden Globe atleast. He has been doing great as Dexter for years.

Margo Martindale won very rightly and was good for Justified to win something. Awesome show.

Someone explain to me why they hate the best show on tv (Sons of Anarchy)? I know Sutter doesn't give a damn, but it's so messed up that a show of that calibre gets passed over consistently, and is the ONLY show that has managed to hold my interest. (Well that and walking dead) as far as dramas go.

I think a lot of Community fans feel your pain, too.

On a separate note: How about those Emmy jokes, eh guys? Yes, we always expect the presenters' jokes to fall flat, but what about the announcer's jokes? It's like the writers wanted to be like Groupon but all failed the job interview.

Amy was on Leno last night and she confirmed the her and Martha Plimpton came up with the idea and then proceeded to get the rest of the nominees in on the gag.
