The Emmys-- Katie Version.

The Emmy nominations were released last week. You can find the full list of nominees here, but I've decided to award my own since I don't watch half of the shows that were nominated.  It was harder that I thought it would be!  Especially picking the winner out of each category.  

Drama Series
Downton Abbey
The Good Wife
Mad Men

*My top two shows were Downton Abbey and Justified.  But I gave it to Downton Abbey because I thought this past season absolutely blew it out of the water.*

Comedy Series
Parks and Recreation
Big Bang Theory
Modern Family
New Girl

*There was no question about this one, although this past season of Big Bang Theory and New Girl were phenomenal.  Nothing beats Parks and Recreation though.*

Best Actress in a Drama
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife
Joelle Carter, Justified
Connie Britton, Nashville
Michelle Dockery, Downton Abbey
Christina Hendricks, Mad Men
Christine Baranski, The Good Wife

*Despite my huge girl-crush on Joan Holloway Christina Hendricks, I had to go with Michelle Dockery.  She was fantastic in season 3 of Downton Abbey, and I can't wait to see what she does with the aftermath of the finale in Season 4!*

Best Actor in a Drama
Timothy Olyphant, Justified
Walton Goggins, Justified
Hugh Bonneville, Downton Abbey
Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Jeffrey Donovan, Burn Notice

*Timothy Olyphant.  Hands down.*

Best Actress in a Comedy
Amy Poehler, Parks & Recreation
Melissa Rauch, Big Bang Theory
Mayim Bialik, Big Bang Theory
Casey Wilson, Happy Endings
Eliza Coupe, Happy Endings

*I actually had a difficult time finding enough nominees for this category.  There were surprisingly few female comedians who I thought were worthy.  But maybe that's just because none of them can hold a candle to Amy Poehler.*

Best Actor in a Comedy
Jim Parsons, Big Bang Theory
Simon Helberg, Big Bang Theory
Nick Offerman, Parks & Recreation
Max Greenfield, New Girl
Rainn Wilson, The Office
Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother

*I had the opposite problem in this category.  There were several more actors that I wanted to put in this category, but I finally narrowed it down to these.  And I picked Dwight Schrute for the win.  Fact.*

So, what do y'all think?  Who would you pick to nominate/win??


  1. I think Best Comedy goes to Big Bang Theory. Love that show.
    I hope Downton wins a lot! SUCH a good show!!

  2. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

  3. I'm going with either Psych or The Big Bang Theory for comedy (because those are the only ones I watch). Jim Parsons for best actor in a comedy and Mayim Bailik for best actress in a comedy. I don't watch any of those dramas so I don't have an opinion on them. :)

  4. Anything Downton Abbey. I'm seriously obssessed. Love this!

  5. I feel like I waste a lot of time watching a lot of tv but would you believe I don't watch any of these shows! Haha!
