Margie's Emmy Predictions


Margie: Edna thinks all a body's got to do is watch TV. Emmy winners my eye. Well, I can pick them better than she can.

You may wonder why I haven't listed sitcoms. Well, you live around Edna and Cousin T and see if you need to see comedy on TV.

Here are my picks:

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Drama Series

James Spader as Alan Shore

Boston Legal • ABC

Bryan Cranston as Walt White

Breaking Bad • AMC

Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan

Dexter • Showtime

Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House

House • FOX

Gabriel Byrne as Paul

In Treatment • HBO

Jon Hamm as Don Draper

Mad Men • AMC

** I pick James Spader because I think he's cute.

Outstanding Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Sally Field as Nora Holden-Walker

Brothers & Sisters • ABC

Kyra Sedgwick as Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson

The Closer • TNT

Glenn Close as Patty Hewes

Damages • FX Networks

Mariska Hargitay as Olivia Benson

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit • NBC

Holly Hunter as Grace Hanadarko

Saving Grace • TNT

** This is a tough choice but I pick Sally Field because she has really turned her life around. First, she thought she wanted to be a Flying Nun then she got mixed up with Smokey and the Bandit. She's a respectable mother in "Brothers and Sisters" now so she should win.

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

William Shatner as Denny Crane

Boston Legal • ABC

Ted Danson as Arthur Frobisher

Damages • FX Networks

Zeljko Ivanek as Ray Fiske

Damages • FX Networks

Michael Emerson as Ben

Lost • ABC

John Slattery as Roger Sterling

Mad Men • AMC

** I pick Michael Emerson because he's a strange looking little man. I think winning an Emmy might help him get some more parts.

Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

Candice Bergen as Shirley Schmidt

Boston Legal • ABC

Rachel Griffiths as Sarah Walker-Whedon

Brothers & Sisters • ABC

Chandra Wilson as Dr. Miranda Bailey

Grey’s Anatomy • ABC

Sandra Oh as Cristina Yang

Grey’s Anatomy • ABC

Dianne Wiest as Dr. Gina Toll

In Treatment • HBO

** I pick Rachel Griffiths. She's such a pretty young lady and very talented. She reminds me of myself when I was her age.

Outstanding Drama Series

Boston Legal • ABC
Damages • FX Networks
Dexter • Showtime
House • FOX
Lost • ABC
Mad Men • AMC

** I predict the winner will be Supernatural. Wait a minute. What dummy forgot to list my show here?

I guess I'll have to pick Lost but it's just not right.

Outstanding Special Visual Effects for a Series

SciFi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica"

"Stargate Atlantis,"

NBC's " Heroes,"

CBS "Jericho"

Discovery Channel documentary "Human Body: Pushing the Limits.

** The clear winner here is Jericho. What a show! Fantastic. Oh, here's an unannounced award:

The Emmy for Dumbest Decision by a Network goes to CBS for their cancellation of Jericho. Special mention to Leslie Moonves. Need I say more?

Outstanding Sound Editing For A Series
Supernatural • Jus In Bello • CW • Supernatural Films, Inc., and Warner Bros. Television Productions, Inc.

** No need to list more nominees. This is the clear winner. Why? All you have to do is listen to the sound of Jensen Ackles voice and you'll see why. There is no sweeter sound in all the world. Lawsy me, let him whisper in my ear.

Oops! I hear Edna calling me. Gotta run. Bye now.

James Spader is cute, but he's always been somewhat mysterious, staying out of the public eye.

You know, I haven't seen most of those shows, like Boston Legal and Grey's Anatomy. For some reason, most shows don't appeal to me until they are 15 years old and on Nick at Night.

Margie: glorie, the choice is easy for me. You know I love Jensen Ackles. He makes me dizzy! Prison Break is another good one. Thank you.

deb, I love a mysterious man. It's fine if James Spader wants to keep me in private!
Honey, if you wait 15 years then the cute guys are old men!
