Today’s the day: the EMMYS!
My feelings about these award shows are basically the same as good ole Ron Swanson’s up there, so let’s talk about what would make this award show a lot less stupid, shall we?
In a perfect world, here’s who I think should be walking home with trophies tonight (these are not predictions - in fact, they’re more like anti-predictions since whoever I think should win usually never do..)
Best Drama Series:
Friday Night Lights (although if The Good Wife or Game of Thrones pull out a win I won’t be unhappy!)
Best Comedy Series:
Parks and Recreation
Best Actor, Drama:
Kyle Chandler, FNL (or Timmy O for Justified - but it’s Kyle’s last year!)
Best Actress, Drama:
Connie Britton, FNL
Best Actor, Comedy:
Steve Carell, The Office (it’s a bit of a sentimental vote for all of his years on The Office, because otherwise my vote would be with Louis CK)
Best Actress, Comedy:
Amy Poehler, Parks and Rec
Best Supporting Actor, Drama:
This is one of the toughest categories, I think. I’d be fine with almost any of them winning. Although Walton Goggins or Peter Dinklage would really make me happy!
Best Supporting Actress, Drama:
Margo Martindale, Justified
Best Supporting Actor, Comedy:
Ty Burrell, Modern Family (although we all know this category SHOULD have Nick Offerman in it..)
Best Supporting Actress, Comedy:
Jane Krakowski, 30 Rock
The Colbert Report
I don’t want to make this post super long, so here’s also hoping that Maggie Smith wins for Downton, Idris Elba wins for Luther, Louis CK wins for writing, Steven Moffat wins for writing Sherlock, and Friday Night Lights wins for the Drama writing.
PS. Don’t worry about me clogging your Dashboards tonight with Emmy-related ranting, I’ll be moving my Emmy rage to Twitter. So if you want to talk Emmys all night, follow me here! (and let me know who you are so I can follow you back) Although if something crazy happens, like if Parks and Rec or Steven Moffat wins, sorry Tumblr, you’ll be hearing about it.
