I've been meaning to give you a proper update, and I'll get around to that soon. In the meantime, here's who I WANT to win Emmys. These maybe aren't the people who I think will win, this is just who I'm rooting for.

2010 Emmy® Nominees

Outstanding Comedy Series
"Curb Your Enthusiasm" (2000)
"Glee" (2009)
"Modern Family" (2009)
"Nurse Jackie" (2009)
"The Office: US Version" (2005)
"30 Rock" (2006)

Shocking I know, but I think Modern Family has earned it more, they've been consistent. While Glee's highs were pretty damn high, they're lows really sucked. Modern Family barely had a bad ep. Go team MF.

Outstanding Drama Series
"Breaking Bad" (2008)
"Dexter" (2006)
"The Good Wife" (2009)
"Lost" (2004)
"Mad Men" (2007)
"True Blood" (2008)

I just like it. The Good Wife had me hooked and fascinated. Dexter used to be brilliant, but it's TGW for me this year.

Outstanding Made for Television Movie
Endgame (2009/I)
Georgia O'Keeffe (2009) (TV)
Moonshot (2009) (TV)
The Special Relationship (2010) (TV)
Temple Grandin (2010) (TV)

I saw none of these, but my money is on The Special Relationship.

Aspergers is a hard thing to play well, he gets points.

Matthew Fox for "Lost" (2004)

January Jones for "Mad Men" (2007)
Julianna Margulies for "The Good Wife" (2009)
Kyra Sedgwick for "The Closer" (2005)

Just because she's amazing. She can show so much in tiny little movements.

Joan Allen for Georgia O'Keeffe (2009) (TV)
Claire Danes for Temple Grandin (2010) (TV)
Hope Davis for The Special Relationship (2010) (TV)
Judi Dench for "Return to Cranford" (2007)

Jesse Tyler Ferguson for "Modern Family" (2009)
Neil Patrick Harris for "How I Met Your Mother" (2005)

I really REALLY want NPH to win, but I think Ty deserves it. Just as long as the T&aHM guy doesn't get it.

saw none

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
Julie Bowen for "Modern Family" (2009)
Jane Krakowski for "30 Rock" (2006)
Jane Lynch for "Glee" (2009)
Holland Taylor for "Two and a Half Men" (2003)
Sofía Vergara for "Modern Family" (2009)
Kristen Wiig for "Saturday Night Live" (1975)

I would be happy if Julie got it, because she's super nice, but dude. It's Sue Sylvester.

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Christine Baranski for "The Good Wife" (2009)
Rose Byrne for "Damages" (2007)
Sharon Gless for "Burn Notice" (2007)
Christina Hendricks for "Mad Men" (2007)
Elisabeth Moss for "Mad Men" (2007)
Archie Panjabi for "The Good Wife" (2009)

Really? You expect me to choose between Rose and Archie? Rose is the woman that made me comfortable with my sexuality and Archie is unbelievably amazing. Archie possibly delves it more, but I can deny Rose nothing.

Kathy Bates for "Alice" (2009)

Julia Ormond for Temple Grandin (2010) (TV)

"Jon Stewart" (1996)
"Real Time with Bill Maher" (2003)
"Saturday Night Live" (1975)

I'll take pity on Conan, but none of them really deserve it.

"The Amazing Race" (2001)
"American Idol" (2002)
"Dancing with the Stars" (2005/I)
"Project Runway" (2005)
"Top Chef" (2006)

I love TAR and AI, but they both kinda sucked this year (bowersox aside) and PR was fucking awesome. Anthony and Seth Aaron own my heart.

Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality - Competition Program
Tom Bergeron for "Dancing with the Stars" (2005/I)
Phil Keoghan for "The Amazing Race" (2001)
Heidi Klum for "Project Runway" (2005)
Jeff Probst for "Survivor" (2000)

Phil deserves it. Heidi seems inconvenienced by being on the show and Ryan is a douche.

Outstanding Reality Program
"Antiques Roadshow" (1997)

"Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe" (2005)
"Food Revolution" (2010)
"Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" (2005)
