2013 EMMYS: My Picks

Emmys day is like Christmas for any TV lover. All of your favorites competing for that golden statue. So here are my personal picks for the 2013 Emmys.

DRAMA SERIES

“Breaking Bad” (AMC)

“Downton Abbey” (PBS)

“Game of Thrones” (HBO)

“Homeland” (DirecTV)

“House of Cards” (Netflix)

“Mad Men” (AMC)

This is a tough category because I have watched each of these shows and they’re all fantastic. I think “Breaking Bad” will win but I choose “Game of Thrones” because of the epicness of each episode. It’s one of my favorites right now!

 

DRAMA ACTOR

Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey”)

Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”)

Jeff Daniels (“Newsroom”)

Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”)

Damien Lewis (“Homeland”)

Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”)

As much as I love “Newsroom” and Jeff Daniels, this award is going to Bryan Cranston. But I’ll mention that Damien Lewis is amazing too.

 

DRAMA ACTRESS

Claire Danes(“Homeland”)

Vera Farmiga (“Bates Motel”) Michelle Dockery (“Downton Abbey”)

Robin Wright (“House of Cards”)

Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men”)

Connie Britton (“Nashville”)

Kerry Washington (“Scandal”)

All I want if for Kerry Washington to win this. She’s amazing in “Scandal.”

 

SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA

Bobby Cannavale (“Boardwalk Empire”)

Jonathan Banks(“Breaking Bad”)

Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”)

Jim Carter (“Downton Abbey”)

Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”)

Mandy Patinkin (“Homeland”)

What a tough category. But I’m pretty sure Aaron Paul has this locked up.

 

SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA

Anna Gunn (“Breaking Bad”)

Maggie Smith (“Downtown Abbey”)

Emilia Clark (“Game of Thrones”)

Christine Baranski (“The Good Wife”)

Morena Baccarin (“Homeland”)

Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men”)

Obsessed with Christina Hendricks in “Mad Men”. But I really feel like “Breaking Bad” is gonna dominate this night and Anna Gunn is amazing.

 

COMEDY SERIES

The Big Bang Theory (CBS)

Girls (HBO)

Louie (FX)

Modern Family (ABC)

30 Rock (NBC)

Veep (HBO)

I always pick “30 Rock” in everything. But “Girls” would make me happy too.

 

COMEDY ACTOR

Alec Baldwin (“30 Rock”)

Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development”)

Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”)

Matt LeBlanc (“Episodes”)

Louie C.K (“Louie”)

Don Cheadle (“House of Lies”)

Again, “30 Rock” is my default setting. But Jason Bateman would make me happy too.

 

COMEDY ACTRESS

Tina Fey (“30 Rock”)

Laura Dern (“Enlightened”)

Lena Dunham (“Girls”)

Edie Falco (“Nurse Jackie”)

Amy Poehler (“Parks and Recreation”)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep”)

This category makes me wish multiples could win. I just want Tina and Amy to share this. Lena could be up there too.

 

WRITING FOR A COMEDY

David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik (“Episodes”)

Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon (“Louie”)

Greg Daniels (“The Office”)

Jack Burditt and Robert Carlock (“30 Rock”)

Tina Fey and Tracey Wigfield (“30 Rock”)

 

DIRECTING FOR A COMEDY

Lena Dunham (“Girls”)

Paris Barclay (“Glee”)

Louis C.K. (“Louie”)

Gail Mancuso (“Modern Family”)

Beth McCarthy-Miller (“30 Rock”)

I didn’t pick Lena for anything else so I’d be cool if she won this one 🙂

 

SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY

Adam Driver (“Girls”)

Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Modern Family”)

Ed O’Neill (“Modern Family”)

Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”)

Bill Hader (“SNL”)

Tony Hale (“Veep”)

Adam Driver is great in “Girls” but I feel like Ty Burrell is so consistently hilarious that I have to pick him.

 

SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY

Mayim Bialik (“The Big Bang Theory”)

Jane Lynch (“Glee”)

Sofia Vergara (“Modern Family”)

Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”)

Merritt Wever (“Nurse Jackie”)

Jane Krakowski (“30 Rock”)

Anna Chlumsky (“Veep”)

Also a very difficult category with tons of laughs. But I love Julie Bowen so yeah.

 

REALITY COMPETITION

“The Amazing Race” (CBS)

“Dancing with the Stars” (ABC)

“Project Runway” (Lifetime)

“So You Think You Can Dance” (FOX)

“Top Chef” (Bravo)

“The Voice” (NBC)

I don’t watch these really but I’ve always thought “The Amazing Race” was the coolest reality show out there.

 

REALITY COMPETITION HOST

Ryan Seacrest (“American Idol”)

Betty White (“Betty White’s Off Their Rockers”)

Tom Bergeron (“Dancing With The Stars”)

Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn (“Project Runway”)

Cat Deeley “So You Think You Can Dance”)

Anthony Bourdain (“The Taste”)

Ryan Seacrest is always my pick for host of everything.
