Our Emmy predictions!

September
18

Are you up for TV’s biggest night on Sunday (8 p.m., CBS)?

In the words of host Neil Patrick Harris’ alter ego – How I Met Your Mother’s Barney Stinson – it should be awesome.

OK, awesome might be taking it too far. To be honest, the Emmys have been a bit of a snooze in recent years. But it’s still pretty fun to watch all the pretty people on the red carpet – and yell at the screen when your favorite show gets robbed of a trophy, isn’t it?

So who are YOU rooting for? Do you think 30 Rock and Mad Men - with an amazing 22 and 16 nominations each – will sweep everything?

Below is the list of the nominees in the top categories, with my winning predictions in bold. Now, these are predictions only – not those I actually WANT to see win.

If that were the case, Remote Access would be checking off Lost and Kristin Chenoweth – and neither have a snowball’s chance in Hades. (I’d be thrilled to be proven wrong, however.)

That said, click through for your Emmy scorecard of the main events…and see if you agree with my foggy crystal ball.

    I think it’ll definitely be very similar to last year’s show. “Mad Men” and “30 Rock” were strong as ever, so I can’t imagine they’ll fall from the top. For my predictions, check out my blog: http://bit.ly/6ek6F
