Emmys

The Emmys are on tonight! It's the first time in 38 years that they're airing on a Monday. I guess they didn't want to compete with Sunday Night Football, True Blood and the VMAs. The Emmys are my absolute favorite, probably because I watch too much TV, and I can't wait to see Seth Meyers as host! Here's who I'd like to see win.

DRAMA
Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Mad Men, True Detective

Breaking Bad. It has to go out with a bang, right?


BEST ACTOR IN A DRAMA
Bryan Cranston, Jeff Daniels, Jon Hamm, Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Kevin Spacey

I'm going with Matthew McConaughey, but Bryan is a close second.


BEST ACTRESS IN A DRAMA
Lizzy Caplan, Claire Danes, Michelle Dockery, Julianna Margulies, Kerry Washington, Robin Wright

My vote goes to Robin Wright, but I have a feeling Julianna will win.
I still need to start watching The Good Wife! Get on that, Netflix.


BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA
Aaron Paul, Peter Dinklage, Jon Voight, Jim Carter, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Charles

Aaron Paul. Hands down.


BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA
Christine Baranski, Joanne Froggatt, Anna Gunn, Lena Headey, Christina Hendricks, Maggie Smith

I have a feeling Anna Gunn will win and I'm not mad about it.


COMEDY
The Big Bang Theory, Louie, Modern Family, Orange Is the New Black, Silicon Valley, Veep

Veep! Or Orange Is The New Black! Or Louie! Or Silicon Valley!
Anything but The Big Bang Theory, really.
And enough with Modern Family. They win every year and it's not that funny.


BEST ACTOR IN A COMEDY
Louis CK, Don Cheadle, Ricky Gervais, Matt LeBlanc, William H. Macy, Jim Parsons

Louis CK all the way.


BEST ACTRESS IN A COMEDY
Lena Dunham, Edie Falco, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Poehler, Taylor Schilling

 Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a genius! 


BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY
Fred Armisen, Andre Braugher, Ty Burrell, Adam Driver, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Tony Hale

I think Adam Driver is a long shot, but I loved him this season.
Tony Hale is my second choice.


BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY
Julie Bowen, Kate Mulgrew, Mayim Bialik, Allison Janney, Kate McKinnon, Anna Chlumsky

Kate McKinnon! She's my favorite right now. Anna Chlumsky is amazing too.


Which actors and shows are you rooting for?

Damn! My plan was to catch up on House of Cards since MFD will be out volunteering tonight and I'm six behind him. I am totally thrown with it being on a Monday.

The only nominated show I was really invested in was Breaking Bad, so it was a happy night for me.

Don't watch the Emmys only get the highlights on the news

I think Matthew's performance on TD is one of the best I've ever seen. I'm completely happy with Bryan winning though. Breaking Bad had a great 7-year run and is the most brilliant show to ever be on tv in my opinion. So glad they swept!

I bet a lot of people are glad it's over so they have a shot at winning next year. Ha!
