Official 2011 Emmy Predictions


It's been quite a week here at Please Welcome Your Judges. With the Emmy steadily approaching, I've broken down my predictions in many of the major categories: Supporting Actors, Supporting Actresses, Lead Actors, Lead Actresses and Series.

But now the time has come, there's no more waiting. In just mere hours, host Jane Lynch will usher in the 63rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards and we'll watch as the winners are announced in 25 categories—and, yes, that includes the snack break otherwise known as "Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special." Ugh. Don't worry, though, we'll get through it together. Just follow @PWYJudges on Twitter—I'll be live-tweeting the broadcast, and I'm sure there will be plenty to discuss.

The TV Academy is incredibly unpredictable, but what fun is there in not at least trying to predict the winners? Here's my final list of predictions for the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards:
