61st Primetime Emmy Predictions

My LiveBlog for tonight's Emmys is set to launch at 7:30. Be sure to head here and follow up-to-the-minute coverage and commentary. Should be great!

Here are my pretty obvious predictions:

Best Drama Series: Mad Men
Best Comedy Series: 30 Rock
Best TV Movie: Grey Gardens
Best Miniseries: Generation Kill
Best Variety Series: The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
Best Reality Competition Program: The Amazing Race
Best Actor, Drama: Gabriel Byrne, In Treatment
Best Actor, Comedy: Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
Best Actor, Miniseries/TV Movie: Brendan Gleeson, Into the Storm
Best Actress, Drama: Glenn Close, Damages
Best Actress, Comedy: Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Best Actress, Miniseries/TV Movie: Jessica Lange, Grey Gardens
Best Supporting Actor, Comedy: Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother
Best Supporting Actor, Drama: Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad
Best Supporting Actor, Miniseries/TV Movie: Ken Howard, Grey Gardens
Best Supporting Actress, Comedy: Amy Poehler, Saturday Night Live
Best Supporting Actress, Drama: Rose Byrne, Damages
Best Supporting Actress, Miniseries/TV Movie: Jeanne Tripplehorn, Grey Gardens
Best Host for Reality Program: Jeff Probst, Survivor

There are a buttload of Emmy awards that don't even get broadcast, and these are the "major" ones (by that, I mean the acting ones). In writing, I think Colbert Report, 30 Rock, and Mad Men will win their respective categories. I don't know what else will be in the show because I can never freaking remember.

Should be a good night for us 30 Rock devotees. If they win, they'll be a TV dynasty: three consecutive Emmy wins for best comedy series. Amazing.
