    As we look back on the Emmy awards, there have been some trends that seem to come up when trying to predict the winners. Some of those trends (from serious to just plain weird) are listed below:

    *Since 2007, every winner of Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series has had blonde hair.

    *Since 2000, all but 2 winners (Debra Messing, Sarah Jessica Parker) of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series have had the letter “I” in their first name. The other two winners, have had the letter “I” in their last or middle name.

    *Since 2002, there has been a different winner for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

    *Since 1996, there has only been one woman to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series two consecutive times (Glenn Close in 2008 and 2009).

    *Since 1997, there has not been a repeat winner of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

    Any others you can think of?

    lol. I actually got one. There’s a pattern of winners in Drama Supporting Actress since 2002.

    • veteran actress
    • veteran actress
    • younger, sexy actress of a hit show
    • veteran actress
    • veteran actress
    • younger, sexy actress of a hit show
    • veteran actress
    • veteran actress
    • younger, sexy actress of a hit show
    • veteran actress
    • ?

    If this trend continues either Smith or Baranski would have to win.

    All but one of the last 7 Lead Comedy Actress winners have won for their first seasons. Tina Fey is the exception, winning for season 2. So even with the exception Amy Poehler is screwed…if trends are to be believed. It’s funny that every time a trend for this category comes up on any give thread, it’s always Poehler who’s hurt by them.

    I’ll play with a funny and stupid one…

    If we’re talking about hair color for the ladies (this is just weird…), how about Jesse Tyler Ferguson in supporting actor? David Hyde Pierce was the last non-dark haired supporting actor to win and before him Woody Harrelson all the way back in 1989. Both blondes. Jonathan Winters had gray hair and John Larroquette still had black hair. Is he the first read head to even be nominated here?

    But every winner has been older than 32, Max Greenfield’s age. Two exceptions since…well, ever. Woody Harrelson is the youngest at 28, then Sean Hayes at 30.

    The Sopranos won acting awards every season leading up to its eventual 5th season Drama Series win.

    Mad Men has won the Drama Series award every season which I believe will finally lead to its first acting Emmy in its 5th season. However, I believe it will lose the Drama Series award, criss crossing with The Sopranos trend.

    Thoughts?

    Sopranos won acting awards in its 5th season, so a TRUE reversal would be if Mad Men won both Drama and an acting award for its 5th season. 

    Sopranos’ last 2 seasons (or 2 half-seasons, I guess) both failed to win acting, but the show did finally pick up a Directing win. Hopefully the latter will happen for Mad Men too. 

    It would be an interesting combination of fates for these 2 shows that had Weiner as an exec producer and were the first cable and first basic cable drama to win Drama.
