The 2011 Emmy Award Wish List

I failed earlier in the week to post my Emmy predictions, and then I concluded that nobody really cares who will win. We're all far more interested in who should win, because at the end of the night, we're likely to forget who the winners were in a week's time anyway. And if we impress hard enough upon our brains our wish-list, maybe we'll remember who we wanted to win instead of who actually won.

The point is: The lovely and hilarious Courtney Enlow is livebloggging the Emmy's tonight, and no one live-blogs awards show better than Courtney. It makes the entire awards-show experience worthwhile. Honestly, they're some of the greatest posts of the year, so do check it out tonight. Buy some wine. Don't wear pants.

Here, again, is a refresher on this year's nominees. In bold are not the nominees I think will win, but those who I want to win. In the end, isn't that what really matters, anyway. That and seeing if Jane Lynch will host as Jane Lynch or as "Jane Lynch."
