Every year, I always bore my friends with award show predictions. From the Emmys in September to the Oscars in February, approximately 40 percent of my existence revolves around the presentation of these shiny gold statues. With the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards coming up in less than a week, I have decided this year to share some of my predictions* on PopPen.
*Despite the obsessive nature of my relationship with awards shows, please note that my track record with divination is quite poor. I blame Professor Trelawney.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson,
Winner: Ty Burrell? He’s the funniest of the Modern Family guys and would deserve it most. I’d also be okay with Ed O’Neill, who had some great heartfelt moments in Season 2. As a Gleek, I desperately want Chris Colfer to win this category sometime, but the “Grilled Cheesus” episode he submitted is kind of a downer.
Winner: Mad Men. I’ve just stopped picking against it.
Michael C. Hall,
Winner: Jon Hamm is really hot though.
Winner: No one really stands out, but I like The Good Wife and I like Josh Charles. So there you go.
Winner: Well, Archie Panjabi won last year out of nowhere, so this is anyone’s guess. I’ll go with Margo Martindale.
