Contractually obligated Emmy Nomination Entry

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series:

Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory
Johnny Galecki, The Big Bang Theory
Matt LeBlanc, Episodes
Louis C.K., Louie
Steve Carell, The Office
Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock

I'm going to have to go with Alec Baldwin, because I don't watch the other shows. Also? Where is Joel Mchale? I mean for real! Mat LeBlanc? Episodes? For reals? Gah.

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series:

Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire
Michael C. Hall, Dexter
Kyle Chandler, Friday Night Lights
Hugh Laurie, House
Timothy Olyphant, Justified
Jon Hamm, Mad Men

Hugh Laurie isn't go to win again. I think he's endless bitching about not winning is why he doesn't win. I wouldn't vote for him either. Buscemi won all ready and MCH won as well. I see it as Kyle Chandler or Timothy Olyphant. Emmy likes rewarding Dramas that no one watches or has ever heard of.

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series:

Laura Linney, The Big C
Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly
Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie
Amy Poehler, Parks & Recreation
Martha Plimpton, Raising Hope
Tina Fey, 30 Rock

The Big C or Mike and Molly . Either laughing in cancers' face or fat jokes. I don't find  a drug addicted RN "funny", I'm pretty sure RH was canceled so Martha Plimpton has a good chance, I heart Tina Fey,. but she has 36 Emmys at home all ready, but, in this crowd, I still  have to go for Fey. But Laura Linny will win because she's a movie person.

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series:

Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Kathy Bates, Harry’s Law
Mireille Enos, The Killing
Mariska Hartigay, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men

I see it as a toss up between FNLs and TGW. I don't watch either and I hate  SVU. I think HL got canceled  after three episodes and I am over MM. I vote for The Killing because that's the one I watch and the actress is brave to spend the entire series looking like a wet cat.

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series:

Chris Colfer, Glee
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family
Ed O’Neill, Modern Family
Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family
Ty Burrell, Modern Family
Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men

I'm going to have to go with Joel McHale!

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series:

Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
Josh Charles, The Good Wife
Alan Cumming, The Good Wife
Walton Goggins, Justified
John Slattery, Mad Men
Andre Braugher, Men of a Certain Age

I like Alan Cumming, he was great in Cabaret, so on the strength of a years old performance in a different discipline, Go Alan Cumming!

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series:

Jane Lynch, Glee
Betty White, Hot in Cleveland
Julie Bowen, Modern Family
Sofia Vergara, Modern Family
Kristen Wiig, Saturday Night Live
Jane Krakowski, 30 Rock

They're going to give it to Betty White, but I want Kristin Wigg to win.

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series:

Kelly Macdonald, Boardwalk Empire
Archie Panjabi, The Good Wife
Christine Baranski, The Good Wife
Margo Martindale, Justified
Michelle Forbes, The Killing
Christina Hendricks, Mad Men

Lets go Michelle Forbes! I just figured out who she is, she was on H-LOTS. The show  uses no light at all, real or artificial that I never got a good look at her. It was so dark it was practically a radio show.

Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series:

Idris Elba, The Big C
Nathan Lane, Modern Family
Zach Galifianakis, Saturday Night Live
Justin Timberlake, Saturday Night Live
Matt Damon, 30 Rock
Will Arnett, 30 Rock

As long as it isn't Nathan Lane for the grossly over rewarded MF, I really don't care. I would be happy with Matt Damon won though.

Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series:

Bruce Dern, Big Love
Beau Bridges, Brothers & Sisters
Michael J. Fox, The Good Wife
Paul McCrane, Harry’s Law
Jeremy Davies, Justified
Roger Morse, Mad Men

I've heard that MJF plays a complete asshole on TGW. I'm sure he has a lot of anger issues in his life, so I'm glad he has the outlet.

Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series:

Kristen Chenoweth, Glee
Dot-Marie Jones, Glee
Gwyneth Paltrow, Glee
Cloris Leachman, Raising Hope
Tina Fey, Saturday Night Live
Elizabeth Banks, 30 Rock
Joan Cusack, Shameless
Alfre Woodard, True Blood

Blech Glee. I vote for Tina Fey or Elizabeth Banks, because I follow her on Twitter.

Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series:

Mary McDonnell, The Closer
Julia Stiles, Dexter
Loretta Devine, Grey’s Anatomy
Randee Heller, Mad Men
Cara Buono, Mad Men

Yeah. I don't care about any of these.
Outstanding Comedy Series:

The Big Bang Theory
Modern Family
The Office
Parks & Recreation
30 Rock

Yay! Community!!

Outstanding Drama Series:

Boardwalk Empire
Friday Night Lights
Game of Thrones
The Good Wife
Mad Men

Yeah. Don't care about any of them.

Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series:

The Colbert Report
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Real Time with Bill Maher
Saturday Night Live

Could all of these win?

Hugh Laurie has never won an Emmy ever and he has never complained or said a negative word about not winning. Maybe you are thinking of Denis Leary who has complained about not winning. It was Jon Hamm who jokingly compained about Bryan Cranston winning and how he was going to beat him up, but Hugh Laurie has never complained, just talked about how lucky he is to be nominated. Get your facts straight. As for NOT voting for him for this supposed reason then he wouldn't be nominated at all would he???
