BETTER STILL, EVERYONE SAYS "SCREW THIS" AND HANDS THEIR AWARDS OVER TO KYLE CHANDLER AND CONNIE BRITTON: We need a thread to pre-show discuss the main Emmys. airing tonight. Seems like a safe guess it's going to be a lovefest for The Sopranos (which has to be the front-runner for drama series, leading actor, and directing/writing awards), with comedy seeming likely to be spread out (Baldwin will hopefully break Shalhoub's streak, Ferrera seems likely to win for Ugly Betty, and while NPH should win, Jeremy Piven probably will). And while Stephen Colbert can't lose to Barry Manilow this year, he could lose to Tony Bennett. It's also a safe bet we're not going to have anything as brilliant as last year's opening ("No, I did not have Conan O'Brien fall through the ceiling."). Share your hopes (Runway beating TAR) and fears (the rather inexplicable nominee Boston Legal sweeping--even if I could deal with Shatner winning).
