Aurel Graf

Drama Series: I really really want to see “The Good Wife” in this race, not just because it would be the only broadcast series but because I think they did a terrific job this season. I’m hoping “Boardwalk Empire” doesn’t get through and leaves the spot open for “The Good Wife.”

Drama Actor: William H. Macy really deserves a nomination this year! I just love him and Felicity Huffman together and I think he did a terrific job this year on “Shameless.”

Drama Actress: I’m rooting for Glenn Close to get nominated again for “Damages” The last episode, especially the last scene of season 4 was so superbly acted.


Comedy Series: “Community” and “Raising Hope”

Comedy Supporting Actress: Jane Krakowski (“30 Rock”) and Cloris Leachman (“Raising Hope”)

Comedy Supporting Actor: Nick Offerman (“Parks and Recreation”)

Royal Night

Comedy Actress: While I think getting multiple nominations will not be a problem, I feel most passionate about Amy Poehler winning an Emmy this year!  I want Amy to win so bad and don’t really care what happens in any other category as long as she takes home an Emmy in September. 


Movie/Miniseries: “Game Change”

Movie/Miniseries Actress: Julianne Moore (“Game Change”)


Movie/Miniseries: “Sherlock”

Movie/Miniseries ActorBenedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock”)

Movie/Miniseries Supp. ActorEd Harris (Game Change”)
