The EMMYS are TOMORROW!!!! So I figured it was time to list my predictions for who will, should, and want to win. It’s pretty basic nothing extensive but it works! I have left off the Miniseries and Movie categories since I didn’t watch all of them so I don’t feel right predicting when I haven’t seen all of them!
Friday Night Lights
Game of Thrones
The Good Wife
Who Should Win: Mad Men, Friday Night Lights, Game of Thrones. Honestly these three shows had excellent seasons. They all deserve to win.
Who I Want to Win: Friday Night Lights. It’s the first and last time they will ever be nominated for this category. The final season started off shaky but it ended beautifully and they deserve to win for all the previous seasons they were never nominated for.
Who Will Win: Sadly I don’t see anyone beating this year’s unstoppable HBO drama, Boardwalk Empire. It has the Golden Globe and the SAG. It doesn’t deserve to win though, in my opinion.
OUTSTANDING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA
Kathy Bates, Harry’s Law
Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights
Mireille Enos, The Killing
Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: SVU
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men
Who Should Win: Elisabeth Moss. Did you see The Suitcase? ‘nuff said.
Who I want to Win: Connie Britton. Tami Taylor is the best TV mother ever peeps.
Who Will Win: Julianna Margulies. And I won’t complain. I love her and she deserves to win. She was robbed last year.
Who Should Win: Jon Hamm. Hello The Suitcase people!!!
Who I want to Win: Kyle Chandler. ERIC TAYLOR I will miss you!!!!
Who Will Win: Jon Hamm. I am going to go out on a leap here and say now that Cranston is out for the year, they are going to keep in the AMC family and FINALLY give it to Hamm.
OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Josh Charles, The Good Wife
Alan Cumming, The Good Wife
Walton Goggins, Justified
John Slattery, Mad Men
Andrew Braugher, Men of a Certain Age
Who Should Win: Walton Goggins
Who I want to Win: Walton Goggins
Who Will Win: Walton Goggins. I think they are finally going to give him the award he deserves after being shunned by them during his time on The Shield. I could be biased though. I am a little too in love with Goggins. It’s kind of sad.

Who Will Win: Matthew Weiner, Mad Men, “The Suitcase”- How can he not win for this episode? It was one of the best episodes of television ever. Weiner has this one in the bag and he deserves it as well.

Who I want to Win: The Office, “Goodbye, Michael”- It was one of the best episodes of the The Office last season, it was beautiful, funny, and bittersweet. It Deserves and should win.
Who Will Win: Steve Levitan and Jeffrey Richman, Modern Family, “Caught in the Act”- I love Modern Family but this wasn’t their best written episode. But it is still very funny and I don’t see the Emmys not giving it to them. Why didn’t they choose Manny Get Your Gun?
