What laffer has the best chance of taking down five-time reigning champ “Modern Family”? Is it “Veep,” “Louie,” “Silicon Valley,” “The Big Bang Theory” or perhaps a new show?

Will “Mad Men” win a record fifth Emmy on the drama side, or will it be beaten by “GoT,” “House of Cards,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Downton Abbey” or something else entirely?

Also in our slugfest, we discuss our longshot predictions for the comedy and drama races and what dream contenders we want to see nominated at the Emmys.
