64th Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations Predictions: March   7 comments

  1. Downton Abbey will be a strong contender to unseat Mad Men

    Sana manominate nga si Mayim Bialik, benta sya sa akin!
    Hopefully Glee snub will happen hehe

  2. I’m pretty certain Mad Men will not win this time around, though I’m leaning on Homeland to do that honors. Downton Abbey will probably be nommed for Series, Supp Actress, Writing, and a lot of technical noms. Ang saya ng labanang Jessica Lange vs. Maggie Smith though nanalo na kasi si Dame Maggie kaya Jessica all the way na yan.

  3. Feeling ko kasi mas appealing sa emmy voters ang downton abbey than homeland

  4. Where’s “Touch?”

  5. Great choices! I hope ‘Downton’ or ‘Homeland’ will take Drama this year. ‘Mad Men’ has had the award plenty of times. ‘Modern’ will take Comedy again, hopefully. Cranston will hopefully take Drama Actor, races against Marguiles and newcomer Danes for Drama Actress, Paul and Dinklage fro Drama Supporting Actor. Smith will win Drama Supporting Actress. Lange will be placed in the Miniseries/TV Movie Supporting Actress category. A race against, Parsons and Galecki for Comedy Actor, Poehler will hopefully win for Comedy Actress, but Dern could make an upset. A 4-Way race against the ‘Modern’ guys (Burrell, Stonestreet, Ferguson and O’Neil), anyone of them will win. Another 4-Way race for Comedy Supporting Actress, for Bowen, Vergara, White and Wiig. Hopefully Vergara will win.
