    Again, these are not Bianco’s official Primetime Emmy predictions, but only the nominess that would appear on his ideal dream Emmy ballot. For instance, he picks Debbie Reynolds for Behind the Candelabra as one of his five nominees in Supporting Actress in a Miniseries/Made for Television Film, and we know already from the ballot that she’s ineligible to compete in that category this year b/c of the 5% rule.

    What a pathetic ballot by someone who is an alleged tv critic.  I’d fire him if he worked at my magazine if that was his idea of a dream ballot from this past season.

    Is it Joelle Carter for Justified or Monica Potter for Parenthood or have all blondes become  that indistinguishable?

    WHo is Robert Bianco and why do I care about his weird fascination with The Middle?

    For the record, it is a fine show that makes for great background noise but beyond that is silly.

    I have the impression critics suddenly feel guilty for not giving a solid show like The Middle more recognition, and now all of them decided to give every aspect of the show tons of praise, but it really isn’t that great even though it is very consistent. And I can see Neil Flynn and especially Eden Sher being stand outs, but Heaton is actually the weakest part of the show now that Kattan isn’t a regular anymore. All of the kids and Flynn overshadow her.

    I just noticed he has Aaron Paul in his line-up but not Banks. Did he even watch the show this season? Or he is being intetionally lazy because all critics must say Aaron Paul is the best thing ever all the time?

    Just a thought, but Margo Martindale really ought to go supporting actress in time for the Globes. It could be an easy win in a weak Supporting TV Actress year when August: Osage County and The Americans are the hot property (assumed) there.

    You may be right concerning the majority of critics (given its nomination at the TV awards this year), but Bianco has actually been a pretty vocal fan of it for a while (if not from the beginning of its run). He often predicts (or, at least, since last year) that it will get nominated in major categories (generally Series, Lead Actor, Actress, and Supporting Actress).

    No Mad Men on Drama Series, though…

    I assume he meant Monica Potter from Parenthood but he did nominate Justified for Series, so…

    Awful suggestions across the categories, especially comedy. And invalidated by the inclusion of Big Bang and its performers over 30 Rock, Jane Krakowski etc. (And no Laura Dern?). I mean…
