For The Record - My Emmy Predictions

Along with comments on the categories on which I have made a different pick to The Buddy.

Drama Series: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CBS; Joan of Arcadia, CBS; The Sopranos, HBO; 24, Fox; The West Wing, NBC.
Winner probably should be "The Sopranos", but since it's never won before, why is it gonna win now? "24" has had better seasons and not won, "CSI" is never gonna win because it's seen as too populist, "Joan" is too green, "West Wing" is shit but it's won four times in a row and is on a nice, respectable subject.

Comedy Series: Arrested Development, Fox; Curb Your Enthusiasm, HBO; Everybody Loves Raymond, CBS; Sex and the City, HBO; Will & Grace, NBC.
"Arrested Development" has buzz and needs a hand.

Actor, Drama Series: James Spader, The Practice, ABC; James Gandolfini, The Sopranos, HBO; Kiefer Sutherland, 24, Fox; Martin Sheen, The West Wing, NBC; Anthony LaPaglia, Without a Trace, CBS.
I've seen the episode LaPaglia submitted. It's damn fine.

Actress, Drama Series: Jennifer Garner, Alias, ABC; Amber Tamblyn, Joan of Arcadia, CBS; Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, NBC; Edie Falco, The Sopranos, HBO; Allison Janney, The West Wing, NBC.
Heart rather than head. My grey cells tell me it'll go to Edie Falco but JG deserves it for a damn fine episode. Which made me cry. Twice.

Supporting Actor, Drama Series: Victor Garber, Alias, ABC; Brad Dourif, Deadwood, HBO; Michael Imperioli, The Sopranos, HBO; Steve Buscemi, The Sopranos, HBO; John Spencer, The West Wing, NBC.
But I'll be hoping for Victor. Really, really hoping. As previously discussed, it's a heart v head situation here. Sadly, I suspect that the Genius that is Garber will lose out to Buscemi because he's a film actor. So I'm going back on my promise to pick Garber. For which I feel bad. Sorry, Victor. But this may actually help you - those I pick tend to lose. Though on that logic, I'm "helping" Jennifer Garner to lose. Oh, goddamit, I don't know. Let's leave it at this: if there was any justice in the world, Victor, you would win this category this year, and have won it the two previous times you were nominated. But, sadly, there is rarely any justice in the world. Sigh.

Supporting Actress, Drama Series: Robin Weigert, Deadwood, HBO; Tyne Daly, Judging Amy, CBS; Drea de Matteo, The Sopranos, HBO; Janel Moloney, The West Wing, NBC; Stockard Channing, The West Wing, NBC.

Actor, Comedy Series: Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm, HBO; John Ritter, 8 Simple Rules, ABC; Kelsey Grammer, Frasier, NBC; Matt LeBlanc, Friends, NBC; Tony Shalhoub, Monk, USA.
Actress, Comedy Series: Patricia Heaton, Everybody Loves Raymond, CBS; Jennifer Aniston, Friends, NBC; Bonnie Hunt, Life With Bonnie, ABC; Jane Kaczmarek, Malcolm in the Middle, Fox; Sarah Jessica Parker, Sex and the City, HBO.
First, SJP picked the second part of a two part episode. Second, judges love Raymond, and Patricia Heaton has won before.

Supporting Actor, Comedy Series: Jeffrey Tambor, Arrested Development, Fox; Brad Garrett, Everybody Loves Raymond, CBS; Peter Boyle, Everybody Loves Raymond, CBS; David Hyde Pierce, Frasier, NBC; Sean Hayes, Will & Grace, NBC.
DHP submitted a decent episode. I don't think Grammer's gonna win lead actor, so I'm assuming this will be the way they choose to remember the final season of Frasier.

Supporting Actress, Comedy Series: Doris Roberts, Everybody Loves Raymond, CBS; Kim Cattrall, Sex and the City, HBO; Kristin Davis, Sex and the City, HBO; Cynthia Nixon, Sex and the City, HBO; Megan Mullally, Will & Grace, NBC.

So, whaddaya think? Anyone want to back me up here? All support gratefully received.

    I might be letting my personal feelings interfere with my prediction, CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI! CSI!

    It's really very good.
