Countdown to the Emmy's

The 61st Primetime Emmy Awards is just around the corner. In my workplace, this is a huge deal. We have different opinions with regards to different shows. One would go gaga with nip/tuck, the other one will climb the highest mountains just to watch House MD. Okay, that was my exaggerated mind talking. Anyway, I have lifted some parts of the nominations from SOURCE and laid my own predictions and opinions for the upcoming Emmy Awards. This is actually an unforgivable result of too much tv. Pardonnez moi!
