Awards season is just getting ready to gear up in the movie world, but awards show fanatics (if there are such creatures) don't have to wait for the new year to sit through a three hour-plus session of people winning things, because this Sunday brings the Emmy Awards, the annual celebration of the best/most popular/however you want to define it in television.
8

Hemingway And Gellhorn Clive Owen Nicole Kidman
Miniseries/Movie

"American Horror Story"

"Game Change"

"Hatfields & McCoys"

"Hemingway & Gellhorn"

"Luther"

"Sherlock: A Scandal In Belgravia"
Should Win: Well, we actually weren't wild about "Game Change," so we'd probably lean towards "Luther" or "Sherlock" or "Hemingway & Gellhorn" here.
Will Win: "Game Change" is the front-runner, but "American Horror Story" or "Hatfields & McCoys" are both firmly in contention too.

Best Comedy

"The Big Bang Theory"

"Curb Your Enthusiasm"

"Girls"

"Modern Family"

"30 Rock"

"Veep"
Should Win: Given that this list misses out most of our favorite comedies, we're going to go with the only one in the list that we truly adore these days -- "Girls." But we wouldn't be particularly upset with wins for 'Curb,' "30 Rock" or "Veep."
Will Win: Not much can stop the "Modern Family" train, though we suppose "Girls" could upset, and "The Big Bang Theory" might get an upswing.

Game Of Thrones Finale 1
Drama Series

"Boardwalk Empire"

"Breaking Bad"

"Downton Abbey"

"Game of Thrones"

"Homeland"

"Mad Men"
Should Win: A brutally tough category, we'd just go for "Mad Men," which had its finest season, over "Game of Thrones" and "Breaking Bad." We wouldn't be disappointed with either, though.
Will Win: Honestly, we're not sure. "Mad Men" took it last year, but "Homeland" and "Downton Abbey" are both high-profile new arrivals, "Breaking Bad" is fiercer than ever, and "Game of Thrones" keeps getting better. Hell, even "Boardwalk Empire" stepped up its game in a big way in season two. If we had to pick one, we'd say 'Downton,' but nothing would surprise us here.
