Hollywood Emmy Prediction Roundup: ‘Mad Men’ rules
HollywoodNews.com: When it comes to Emmy predictions, there’s a strong guess by media pundits that AMC’s “Mad Men” could three-peat for the Best Drama Series win.
However, while critics love the show, they want to see another program win. Entertainment Weekly’s Ken Tucker is going out on a ledge and exclaiming that voters will have a soft spot for “Lost.” However, Tucker’s co-worker Michael Ausiello, L.A. Times’ Tom O’Neil and the Vulture TV staff beg to differ.
Best Comedy Series odds go to ABC’s freshman show “Modern Family” per L.A. Times and EW. Vulture, however, would like to see “Glee” bring home the bacon since it’s a cultural phenomenon. The site thinks old-timer fave “30 Rock” could spoil the party for the new kids on the block
Vulture and Ausiello have their money on Jim Parsons of CBS’ “Big Bang Theory” as the winner for Best Comedy Actor. O’Neil is more conservative, selecting the Teflon Tony Shalhoub for “Monk.” Both Vulture and Ausiello concur that “Modern Family’s” Ty Burrell will win for Best Supporting Actor Comedy. O’Neil: Chris Colfer on “Glee.”
All three outlets are in full agreement that Edie Falco, hands down, is the Emmy fave for Best Actress in a Comedy for her moody portrayal of moody medic “Nurse Jackie” – a role that’s more dramatic than funny. Everybody would be nuts not to think that Jane Lynch will win Best Supporting Actress Comedy for “Glee.” In fact, she should be in the Actress slot. Odds, are Fox didn’t want to put her head to head with Falco.
Vulture and L.A. Times believe it’s Michael C. Hall’s year to win Best Actor Drama for his serial killer acting in Showtime’s “Dexter.” Ausiello has offbeat selections: “Bryan Cranston (of AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad’) and Kyle Chandler (of NBC’s ‘Friday Night Lights’). Cranston could well earn his third consecutive trophy, but the Academy has three years of snubs to atone for where Chandler is concerned.”
Vulture and L.A. Times guess for Best Supporting Actor: Terry O’Quinn from “Lost.” Ausiello’s choice: Aaron Paul of “Breaking Bad.”
Everybody is in love with Julianna Margulies for her work on CBS’s “The Good Wife” given her rallies for Best Actress at the SAG Awards and Golden Globes.
For Supporting Actress Drama, the three sites think it will go to a “Mad Men” actress. But there’s a bit of split: O’Neil and Ausiello think Christina Hendricks will sashay away with Emmy booty. Says Ausiello, “Her alternately tragic and triumphant work in “Guy Walks Into an Advertising Agency” (the episode she wisely chose to submit) should earn the never-nominated Hendricks a fistful of gold.” Vulture is “flipping a coin” and calling it in favor of Elisabeth Moss on account that she had more screen time than Hendricks.
