2010 emmy picks – drama


I snatched the following list from Entertainment Weekly because I wasn’t going to type out every single name and show when copy/paste works so much better. Anyway, since I can’t guess the Emmys as well as I can the Oscars, I’m just going to pick who I’d like to win, my pick will be bold. I may give a few comments to those I think may win… or just comments in general. However, there are a few categories I know nothing about due to shows I don’t watch. Lastly, since there are 20 categories, I’m splitting these posts. Thank me later.

*And just like any award show, there are what we call “snubs” meaning, shows or actors we, the audience, felts have been left out. I’ll include any that I personally felt have been overlooked or left out for at least a nomination.

To also save some time, I have some acronyms I’ll use
I hear good things and hope to check out someday – HGT
Fond farewell, schedule last season, nice goodbye gift – FF

Lost C’mon… what did you think I would pick? FF
Breaking Bad HGT
Dexter I love Dexter, but I haven’t seen this past season yet

True BloodI’ve only scene the first season, but I know it’s insanely popular
The Good Wife I know it’s a hit, but I don’t have an interest in seeing this

Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife)
Mariska Hargitay (Special Victims Unit)

Kyra Sedgwick (The Closer)
January Jones (Mad Men)
Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights)

Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights)
Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)
Hugh Laurie (House M.D.)
Michael C. Hall (Dexter) Cancer survivor points even if he doesn’t win
Matthew Fox (Lost)Not only is this an FF, but well deserved for a challenging last season for his character
*John Noble (Fringe) – I don’t know if he’s considered a star or co-star, but his work this past season… wow.

John Slattery (Mad Men)
Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad)
Martin Short (Damages)
Terry O’ Quinn (Lost) – Its the Globes you can have a tie, right? But seriously, this dude kinda played about 3 characters. FF

Mary Kay Place (Big Love)
Sissy Spacek (Big Love)
Shirley Jones (The Cleaner)
Lily Tomlin (Damages)
Ann-Margret (Law & Order: Special Victims Unit)
Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost) – I think she made everyone cry in the premiere, and again in the finale. Might I add the moment she appeared and the world collectively cheered, and then collectively felt the chills as she repeated those mysterious words at the vending machine. FF

  1. I’m only commenting because I’ve become completely obsessed with Lost. It should get every award in every category. I can’t even watch True Blood anymore because frankly, I’d rather watch Lost again for the THIRD time than watch a new episode of True Blood.

    In a way, I’m glad I never had to wait a week or an entire summer (OMG!!) between episodes. But in another way, it sort of sucks that I didn’t get to go on the ride along with all the other fans.

    And get this — tonight in my guitar class, the teacher started talking about electromagnetism and sound. Not a minute later, he called role and one of the names was Jorge Garcia. Trip out!

      I completely feel you regarding waiting a week/summer… I’ve been on both sides of the fence. Seasons 1-5 I didn’t have to wait, but after I finished season 5, I had to wait for 6 and then every other week… which was bittersweet. I felt like I was part of a global community watching the finale, so that was nice. But the waiting was intense, especially after each cliffhanger episode ended with.

      So yes, I want LOST to win everything. On the comedy side, I want Modern Family. I’m taking my time with True Blood. For me, definitely doesn’t compare with LOST. I will actually start my third viewing after I finish rewatching season 6. Then I will start my marathon. But I gotta hurry because new TV shows are starting soon. I’ll be checking out No Ordinary Family as a Heroes replacement. lol

      And guitar class? That’s awesome. Surely you will upload a video of you rocking out?
