Here are the nominees for the main categories and my bets on who will win.
BEST COMEDY SERIES
Desperate Housewives (ABC)
Arrested Development (FOX)
Everybody Loves Raymond (CBS)
Will & Grace (NBC)
MY BET: Desperate Housewives. Yet another newbie but a hilarious show mixed with great storylines, drama, and so much more. And how in the world is Will & Grace nominated?
BEST COMEDY ACTOR
Tony Shalhoub, Monk (USA Network)
Ray Romano, Everybody Loves Raymond (CBS)
Jason Bateman, Arrested Development (FOX)
Eric McCormack, Will & Grace (NBC)
Zach Braff, Scrubs (NBC)
MY BET: Jason Bateman. While Shalhoub and Romano are the favorites, I'm going with Bateman. I'm not a fan of Arrested Development, but I've liked his work over the years on some of his other shows and he should get it. If not, look for Romano to get his last Emmy for Raymond.
BEST COMEDY ACTRESS
Teri Hatcher, Desperate Housewives (ABC)
Marcia Cross, Desperate Housewives (ABC)
Patricia Heaton, Everybody Loves Raymond (CBS)
Felicity Huffman, Desperate Housewives (ABC)
Jane Kaczmarek, Malcolm in the Middle (FOX)
MY BET: Teri Hatcher. Hatcher's fine physical comedy is fun to watch. Marcia Cross has great lines and is equally hilarious, so one of them will win this award. Huffman's character is the best dramatic character I think, so she will not get it. Where is Eva Longoria? Her character is hilarious! It will be a big upset if a Housewife doesn't win.
BEST SUPPORTING COMEDY ACTOR
Jeffrey Tambor, Arrested Development (FOX)
Peter Boyle, Everybody Loves Raymond (CBS)
Brad Garrett, Everybody Loves Raymond (CBS)
Sean Hayes, Will & Grace (NBC)
Jeremy Piven, Entourage (HBO)
MY BET: Peter Boyle. It's the final season for Raymond, either Boyle or Garrett should win it. I love Jeffrey Tambor, but I doubt he will win.
BEST SUPPORTING COMEDY ACTRESS
Jessica Walter, Arrested Development (FOX)
Doris Roberts, Everybody Loves Raymond (CBS)
Conchata Ferrell, Two and a Half Men (CBS)
Holland Taylor, Two and a Half Men (CBS)
Megan Mullally, Will & Grace (NBC)
MY BET: Doris Roberts. Again it's the final season for Raymond, and she will it home for one last time. Jessica Walter could also win. Ferrell is great but a long shot. No one else has a chance I think. Where is Nicollette Sheridan?
BEST DRAMA SERIES
The West Wing (NBC)
Six Feet Under (HBO)
MY BET: Lost. This is clearly the best written drama on television. It is well acted and the characters are all just wonderful.
BEST DRAMA ACTOR
Hugh Laurie, House (FOX)
James Spader, Boston Legal (ABC)
Ian McShane, Deadwood (HBO)
Kiefer Sutherland, 24 (FOX)
Hank Azaria, Huff (Showtime)
MY BET: James Spader. Spader won it last year for The Practice, and I think he is the one to beat. Laurie could also take it, but Spader deserves it. Matthew Fox got snubbed, he should be here and should have been the winner, too.
BEST DRAMA ACTRESS
Glenn Close, The Shield (FX)
Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC)
Patricia Arquette, Medium (NBC)
Frances Conroy, Six Feet Under (HBO)
Jennifer Garner, Alias (ABC)
MY BET: Glenn Close. I've not seen the show but Close is the heavy favorite. I'd love for Jennifer Garner to finally get that Emmy, but that would be out of no where. If this is the last season for Alias, hopefully Garner gets it next year. Arquette gets in but not Ellen Pompeo or Amber Tamblyn?
BEST SUPPORTING DRAMA ACTOR
Terry O'Quinn, Lost (ABC)
William Shatner, Boston Legal (ABC)
Alan Alda, The West Wing (NBC)
Naveen Andrews, Lost (ABC)
Oliver Platt, Huff (Showtime)
MY BET: Terry O'Quinn. O'Quinn as the mysterious Locke is such a great character and is for sure Emmy material. Only way he doesn't win is if Shatner wins. Alan Alda could be in the mix, too.
BEST SUPPORTING DRAMA ACTRESS
Stockard Channing, The West Wing (NBC)
Sandra Oh, Grey's Anatomy (ABC)
CCH Pounder, The Shield (FX)
Tyne Daly, Judging Amy (CBS)
Blythe Danner, Huff (Showtime)
MY BET: CCH Pounder. Never saw The Shield, but wow that name CCH Pounder sounds interesting! This is clearly the weakest category. Where is Yunjin Kim???
Coming tomorrow, my bets on the winners for each timeslot for the fall season!
