"Modern Family" is a load of liberal sh*t (hence the title) and no doubt will win lots of awards.

Just give it the damn Emmy to The Office and Steve Carell.... So the MF can come back to the show.... Without him the show is a sinking ship, My God!!!!!

Where the f*ck is Breaking Bad!! I would usually be backing Dexter but since the anti climactic end to the last season that I just wanna forget about I'll back A Game Of Thrones for best drama.

None of those comedy series stand out either Arrested Development should still be in there on it's 6th season but no retards can't handle comedy without laughing tracks and obvious humour. They need to be told when to laugh... c*nts.

@Cinemaisdead

Breaking Bad's fourth season hasn't begun yet, but will no doubt be nominated next year.

Season three was nominated last year.

The new season's release was pushed back.

Dinklage will win, his acting in GOT is crazy good. Everything else who gives a f*ck, mad men will win everthing as usual. Is it me or does mad men look like a boring ass show?

If there isn't an HBO show nominated in every category, I call bullsh*t. Network TV has nothing on the excellence that is HBO. Last season of True Blood was AWESOME, so was Boardwalk Empire, Entourage, Treme, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Game of Thrones.

I feel true blood is running out of steam, the mystery and funny stuff is gone. And im sorry, as hot as anna paquin is, she cant act. And bills accent is hilarious. Game of thrones and boardwalk empire were the only real new shows to surprise me this year. Dexter kinda blew, and everything on cable pretty much sucks. I tried watching modern family once, it was basically a dumbed down knockoff of arrested development.

Btw arrested development is the comedic version of the godfather.

@Cinemaisdead

The seasons have to air and have their submissions in before late May. Dexter began in September, ended in Decemeber, it can submit for this year. Breaking Bad submitted for last year's season 3 as the season began in April or something like that but didn't begin till July this year. Therefore it was too late for it to submit anything for this year.

The Emmy voters actually got a lot right this year with their Best Series nods for "Friday Night Lights" and "Parks and Recreation", Best Actor for Louis CK, and the multiple "Justified" nods. The biggest travesty is actually the Supporting Actor in a Comedy category. I very much enjoy "Modern Family", but nominating all four of it's big actors is overkill. Especially when omit people like Nick Offerman (Parks and Rec) and Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother).

My predictions:

Lead Actress in a Comedy Series:
I really want to say Amy Poehler because she is so good in Parks and Rec and the most deserving in that category, but there's a good chance Laura Linney wins because she is a more recognizable "awards" name and she has more dramatic material. Keep in mind the award is for acting IN a comedy series. Not comedic acting (unfortunately)

Lead Actor in a Comedy Series:
Alec Baldwin. Jim Parsons had his year, 30 Rock rebounded from a weak 4th season and Baldwin has a great submission episode at his disposal so I think he'll take his 4 statuette home. Steve Carell/Michael Scott goes down as one of the best actors/characters to never win an Emmy for an iconic role (even if this season was awful).

Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series:
Jane Lynch. She won last year, she's hosting, and damnit if people don't like Glee (for whatever reason).

Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series:
Ed O'Neil. He's a veteran and probably has the most well-rounded material to submit from the Modern Family cast.

Best Comedy Series:
Modern Family. But it should be Parks and Rec, if only critics voted for these things.

Lead Actress in a Drama Series:
Julianne Marguiles. The Good Wife is popular with critics, she probably should've won last year. I think it should be Elisabeth Moss, but I'll be (pleasantly) surprised if she wins.

Lead Actor in a Drama Series:
Jon Hamm. He's given one of the best performances on TV for 4 years now and it has gone unrewarded because, unfortunately for him, Bryan Cranston has been giving THE best performance on TV for each of those years. He's ineligible this year so I expect Hamm will finally win.

Supporting Actor in a Drama Series:
Hard to say, probably a Good Wife actor. Usually if you get two deserving nominees from the same show, one of them will win. Sorry Peter Dinklage, but he broke ground just by getting the voters to recognize a fantasy based show. This is an interesting category though because Braugher is a longtime Emmy fav, and Slattery is one of those who people can't believe hasn't won an award yet.

Supporting Actress in a Drama Series:
Christina Hendricks. This is her year, hell this could be the year Mad Men just takes every category.

Best Drama Series:
I shouldn't even have to say this. Mad Men will win.

Yeah, I call bullsh*t. Only "Best Drama" and one acting nod for Game of Thrones? Not right, not at all.

Alex, what are you talking about? The Killing clearly has two nominations on here. One for lead actress in a drama series (Mireille Enos) and one for supporting actress in a drama series (Michelle Forbes).

Dexter (new promo is out btw)

Cheaters

You wonīt find anything better than "Game of Thrones" on TV this year, so, obviously, it wonīt win anything. Snubbing "Walking Dead" is also unforgivable... and "The Killing" wasnīt ignored, with two acting nods, and, farnkly, it should have been, because itīs a pretentious, boring piece of sh*t.

Emmys and oscars are just a bunch of self loving lets pat ourselves on the backsh*t shows. Awards mean sh*t. Look at the best comedy category. Look at it. The horror. The horror. Workaholics is funnier than all those shows and yet will never win an emmy. And who givesa sh*t, its funny and we dont need an award show to tell us whats good. The office hasn't been funny in 5 years nor has modern family EVER been funny. Yet they are gonna win awards.
