If the Emmys listened to me…

Hollywood’s favorite award show (besides the Oscars) is going to announce their nominations tomorrow

The Emmy nominations are coming out tomorrow, so I’ll be saying my picks for Best Drama, Comedy, and Variety Series.  If the Emmys don’t nominate any of these shows, I’ll be seriously disappointed.  If they do nominate all of them, well, I’ll be cheering and will promise never to criticize them ever again.

So here are my picks!


Breaking Bad

Mad Men


Game of Thrones


Boardwalk Empire

All of these are great shows.  Some of these are guarantees (Mad Men), some will most unlikely not get nominated (Justified).  But I’m guessing most of these will.  Oh yeah, Luck would be an honorable mention for me.



Parks and Recreation


Curb Your Enthusiasm



Haven’t seen Girls, mostly because it doesn’t seem like my kind of show, so that’s why it’s not on the list.  There’s a 100% chance Modern Family will get on here, and I’m not sure if it totally deserves it.  But what will really annoy me is if shows like GleeNew Girl, and The Big Bang Theory get nominations just because of popularity instead of critical praise.

As for the absence of 30 Rock, I gave up on season 4.  I watched a few episodes this season and they’ve been really unfunny.

Variety Series

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

The Colbert Report

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Late Show with David Letterman

Saturday Night Live

No, I don not regularly watch all these shows (just The Daily Show and Colbert Report).  I couldn’t really come up with an option better than SNL, so that made the list.

Any objections?  Think I should have added another show.  Comment!



  1. I’d like to see Conan get an Emmy nod and as long as Louie wins for comedy and Breaking Bad for drama…I’m set.

    • I’m not really a Conan fan, though I do enjoy the clips I do watch of him on Youtube. I’d also be really happy to see Louie and Breaking Bad take home trophies, though I have a bad feeling the Emmys will snub Louis C. K. again. Thanks for commenting.

      • I’m sure Louie will get snubbed for something idiotic but I certainly hope he gets SOMETHING

      • Yeah, if the Emmys snub Louie for Best Comedy I will take the Emmys less seriously than I do now. And that’s saying something.
