    My predictions:

    VARIETY SERIES   
    The Colbert Report
    Conan
    The Daily Show with Jon Stewart*
    Jimmy Kimmel Live!
    Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
    Saturday Night Live

    REALITY-COMPETITION SERIES  
    The Amazing Race*
    American Idol 
    Dancing with the Stars
    So You Think You Can Dance
    Top Chef
    The Voice 

    Do you agree with my predictions? Are your predictions different? Discuss below!

    I thought there are only five nominees..? I think SNL and Dancing with the Stars (SO past its prime) are vulnerable. Don’t the Emmys LOVE Kathy Griffin? She could sneak in though I haven’t seen her talk show so I’m not sure if it would be warranted (like that has anything to do with it, I know).

    I could definitely see Kathy sneak in. But not for SNL. It will be nominated till doomsday, no matter how bad it as.
    I expect this to be the year they will drop Project Runway. I used to love the show so much, but now it is only focusing on the personal drama of the designers rather than the challenges. It’s really sad if you think about it, because it used to be such a great television program.

    I hope Kathy gets in and i also hope that Craig Ferguson’s show gets in as well.  Both of those shows are my favorite late night talk shows.

    Why is no one predicting Bill Maher. He’s been nominated every year. He’s pretty much a lock. I think he’ll get in over Conan. Honestly, his show on TBS isn’t that good. I think Jimmy Kimmel finally deserves a nomination.

    There was a long period of time when SNL wasn’t getting nominated so…it being snubbed wouldn’t be too off the map. But I think they’ll definitely get in again because of Kristen Wiig’s farewell and all. And they’ll probably get in next year because of all the election stuff. But the year after next year…they could definitely be snubbed.  wink!

    I think Project Runway will get in for Dancing with the Stars…although The Voice and SYTYCD are both vulnerable.

    I actually dislike these categories because the same people always win. It’s become a joke. It’s like SUsan Lucci but in reverse.

    Is this a catch-all thread for all the “other” categories besides variety/reality? I’ll have to come up with something soon.

    I don’t see that Variety Series category changing anytime soon. Those shows are very much established as the most popular and things like Jimmy Kimmel and much less Kathy have no chance of beating them to a nomination. I do agree that SNL doesn’t have what it takes to compete there and it’s been that way for YEARS, but I doubt they drop them.

    If anything is going away I would say it’s either Conan or Jimmy, both are vulnerable, nowhere near as popular or established as Colbert, Stewart, Letterman and Maher. Well, maybe Maher is vulnerable too.

    And as a huge Kathy Griffin fan, that show didn’t do enough to warrant a nomination right now. If it gets renewed and they fix all the problems we discussed in that thread, then maybe next year she could have a shot. She definitely has what it takes to someday be a part of this category.

    The categories that “normally” have six are:
    Comedy Series, and all six of its acting categories
    Drama Series, and all six of its acting categories
    Miniseries/Movie
    Variety Series
    Reality Program
    Reality-Competition Program
