    There are many people I am rooting for.  I would love to see Kate Mulgrew, Josh Charles, Joanne Frogatt, Martin Freeman, and several others win.

    But if I could only pick one to ensure the win?

    Minnie Driver in Return to Zero.

    Why?  Because it was the one that surprised me the most, emotionally moved with the most, has stayed with me the most, and she’s an underdog in a field she should be slaying.

    Minnie Driver just for the pure pleasure of watching Lange and Tyson fanboys commiting suicide everywhere.

    It has to be Ricky Gervais for me – he’s absolutely amazing in Derek.

    Josh Charles for me. The best way of honoring The Good Wife this year.

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson. He’s due and has his best tape submission ever this year.

    Jane Fonda — her scene in The Newsroom’s “Red Team III” is one of my favorites of the whole 2013-2014 TV season.

    Josh Charles. He is the most deserving of anyone this year to win.

    Comedy is my expertise so I will stick with that.

    Julia-Louis Dreyfus is the obvious pick of anyone this year. But using my magic Emmy guarantee would be pretty pointless because she already is an Emmy guarantee. And has four anyway.

    Best Actor I don’t care that much about. Samburg deserved this but isn’t here. Gervais is great. So is Louis. LeBlanc is haven’t seen this year but Joey finally winning would be neat. So no big fave here. Similarly, in Supporting Actor I love Hale, Ferguson, and Barugher equally.

    I think the “Orange Is the New Black” pilot is the strongest script in writing, but Louis is always deserving. “Las Vegas” is the best in directing but “Lesbian Request Denied” is equally good and arguably more important, plus Gail Mancuso won last year. In both races one of my two favorites will win, so pass on both as well.

    In Comedy Series my obvious favorite was “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”. But it isn’t there. My favorite among the obvious three frontrunners is “Veep”, but only barely over “Orange Is the New Black”. I don’t think “Modern Family” deserves five, but neither did “Frasier” and neither does anything. And if something is going to tie a record I absolutely adore “Modern Family” and much of their work this season so I don’t need to use my guarantee to stop it from winning over the other two.

    Which leaves Best Supporting Actress. Allison Janney and Mayim Bialik are both giving decent but not award worthy performances on shows that are not remotely award worthy at all. So although I’m sure they are very nice people I definitively do NOT want either to win. I love Julie Bowen but she already has two Emmys and comparatively fewer highlights this season as Claire. Kate Mulgrew I think gave an excellent performance, but not markedly more than anyone else in her ensemble. Kate McKinnon is awesome but will have many more years on SNL with hopefully better material. Anna Chlumsky does fantastic work on “Veep”. She brings such zest and focus to each action and line delivery that, just like her winning co-star Tony Hale, even though she has fewer opportunities to show off than anyone in her category, every time she is onscreen all you want is more of her. It is a shame that she seems to be a longshot and if Hale and Louis-Dreyfus are Emmy champs, she deserves to be as well.

    So my magic guarantee goes to…Anna Chlumsky, “Veep”, Best Comedy Supporting Actress.

    Just one…………well that would have to be Dinklage. As much as I love Aaron Paul, Dinklage had the better episode.

    We all know 2 awards should already be shipped to the producers:

    Best Mini-Series for Fargo and Best Made for TV Film for The Normal Heart.

    I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this, but I want Sherlock: His Last Vow to win for Best TV Movie. Sherlock is such a damned good show that has no Emmy wins, and “His Last Vow” was my favorite episode out of all three series.

    ^I would agree with you but they should have chosen “The Sign of Three” which was, in my opinion, the best episode this season.
