The 63rd Emmy Award Nominations

The 63rd annual Emmy Awards will be presented on September 18, 2011 and will be hosted by Jane Lynch. 

The Emmy Award Nominations were just announced and I will be letting you all know who I would like to see win by using a (*). 

Drama Series:
- Boardwalk Empire
- The Good Wife*
- Mad Men
- Friday Night Lights
- Dexter
- Game of Thrones 
* This past season of The Good Wife was absolutely brilliant, not sure how but it topped the fantastic first season.

Lead Actress in a Drama Series:
- Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men)
- Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights)
- Mariska Hargitay (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit)
- Mireille Enos (The Killing)
- Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife)*
- Kathy Bates (Harry's Law)
* Julianna Margulies was brilliant this past season, like the show, she was even better this season.

Lead Actor in a Drama Series:
- Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire)
- Michael C. Hall (Dexter)*
- Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights)
- Jon Hamm (Mad Men)
- Hugh Laurie (House)
- Timothy Olyphant (Justified)
* I will always love Dexter, which means I will always vote for Michael C. Hall.

Supporting Actress in a Drama Series:
- Kelly Macdonald (Boardwalk Empire)
- Christina Hendricks (Mad Men)
- Michelle Forbes (The Killing)
- Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife)*
- Margo Martindale (Justified)
- Christine Baranski (The Good Wife)
* I love both Archie and Christine on The Good Wife, but Archie Panjabi's character showed a completely different side this past season.

Supporting Actor in a Drama Series:
- John Slattery (Mad Men)
- Andre Braugher (Men of a Certain Age)
- Walton Goggins (Justified)
- Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones)
- Josh Charles (The Good Wife)
- Alan Cumming (The Good Wife)*
* Alan Cumming on The Good Wife was fantastic this season. Season 2 would not be great without him. 

Comedy Series:
- Glee
- Parks and Recreation
- The Office
- Modern Family*
- 30 Rock
- The Big Bang Theory 
* I love Glee but this past season was off and on. It felt more like it was about the guest stars instead of the core cast. 

Lead Actress in a Comedy Series:
- Laura Linney (The Big C)
- Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie)
- Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreations)
- Melissa McCarthy (Mike and Molly)
- Marsha Plimpton (Raising Hope)
- Tina Fey (30 Rock)*
* I love Edie Falco and Laura Linney but do not feel they are worthy of the Emmy this year. Tina Fey had a fantastic year on 30 Rock. 

Lead Actor in a Comedy Series:
- Matt LeBlanc (Episodes)
- Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory)
- Steve Carell (The Office)
- Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory)
- Louis C.K. (Louie)
- Alec Baldwin (30 Rock)*
* 30 Rock was great this past season, a complete step up from season 4. Alec Baldwin in particular was perfect.

Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series:
- Jane Lynch (Glee)
- Betty White (Hot in Cleveland)
- Julie Bowen (Modern Family)
- Kristen Wiig (Saturday Night Live)
- Jane Krakowski (30 Rock)
- Sofia Vergara (Modern Famiy)*
* I love Jane Lynch and her character but Sofia Vergara really needs to win the Emmy this year.

Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series:
- Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men)
- Chris Colfer (Glee)*
- Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family)
- Ed O'Neill (Modern Family)
- Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family)
- Ty Burrell (Modern Family)
* I loved Eric Stonestreet's character this past year but this is Chris Colfer's award to lose.
