A LANNISTER ALWAYS WINS HIS EMMY: The problem with the Emmy Awards is that they neither succeed as recognition of merit or, as the Grammys now do, as spectacle. But we go into Sunday night with the awards show we have, and not the awards show we want. Matt Zoller Seitz lists five races which excite him, while Sepinwall and Fienberg continue their omnibus will/should wins. Wiki has the most concise rundown of the major categories, but, really, is there ever going to be as tight and well-regarded a category as 2005's Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series?
