65th Emmy Nominations



I almost forgot about the Emmys! Here's the nominations, as well as my take.....


 
Will this be the year Jon Hamm wins an Emmy??

Hugh Bonneville, Downton Abbey, PBS
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad, AMC
Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom, HBO
Jon Hamm, Mad Men, AMC

This is interesting... my top pick would be Jon Hamm for Mad Men, but given the nominees, I would not disappointed if he lost. I would just prefer him to win.

Claire Danes, Homeland, Showtime

Either Claire Danes or Robin Wright.

I can see Big Bang, Girls or Modern Family winning here.
