Instant Critic.

OK, so the week before every major awards show I cruise my favorite blogs to check up on critics’ predictions for the major categories…

And today, as I read up on some “professional” insight into who will take home TV’s biggest honor next Sunday, I had an epiphany–I mean, now that I have my own blog and know more about TV than some of the looney tunes paid to write about it, I should make some predictions of my own!

And so, without further ado, here are my 2010 Primetime Emmy Award predictions (**disclaimer** I DO NOT deny that I am extremely biased and most certainly have my own ideas about who should win..I’ll do my best to acknowledge when I am predicting and when I am wishing/hoping/dreaming).

    Do you watch DAMAGES? Rose Byrne submitted the first episode of the season to the Emmy voters. In that episode, her character has almost NOTHING to do. I really don’t know what she was thinking (maybe she thinks awards aren’t cool and decided to sabotage her chances), but there’s no way she’s winning this year.
