So I've learned from experience, I am not good at predicting the Emmys. I have a fairly good Oscar track record, but the Emmys are a different ballgame, partly cause I do not follow the world of television as obsessively as the world of movies. Regardless, I love awards shows, and a few of my favorite TV Shows are up for some big awards, so I'll be watching tonight on NBC. But I will refrain from doing any formal predictions, cause it's sorta pointless, I'll get half of 'em wrong anyways. But I do wanna talk bout what I want to win, what if I had to put money on it will have a strong presence at the show, and other miscellaneous thoughts about the Emmys.
First and foremost, I'm seeing this years' Emmys as a last hoozah for LOST fans. Season 6 received multiple nominations with Matthew Fox up for Best Actor and the show up for Best Drama. Obviously I want it to win, but will it? Probably not, it's nomination is the farewell to the show in-and-of itself. If you asked me which shows will win the most tonight, it will be True Blood and Glee, but Mad Men could be True Blood's spoiler if not enough of the older Academy members like near pornographic vampires. 30 Rock may have run its awards course, but I see no way in which it will usurp Glee in the Comedy categories tonight. Personally I'm pulling for The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien to win the Best Variety category, but I don't think it will, regardless, it's hilarious that neither The Jay Leno Show nor The Tonight Show With Jay Leno are nominated. As for Emmy host Jimmy Fallon, I have never watched his tenure on Late Night, he could be really funny, I don't know, but he has some big shoes to fill after Neal Patrcik Harris doing so well last year.
So that's that. The Emmys are on NBC tonight, starting at 8/7 central.
