BEST TELEVISION SERIES – COMEDY OR MUSICAL
The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Episodes (Showtime)
Girls (HBO)
Modern Family (ABC)
Smash (NBC)
COMMENTS: No 30 Rock or New Girl this year, while Smash is in. And Glee is finally out. Modern Family should win it.

Zooey Deschanel, New Girl (Fox)
Lena Dunham, Girls (HBO)
Tina Fey, 30 Rock (NBC)
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, The Veep (HBO)

Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock (NBC)
Don Cheadle, House of Lies (Showtime)
Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Louis C.K., Louie (FX)
Matt LeBlanc, Episodes (Showtime)
COMMENTS: Jim Parsons is back on, while co-star Johnny Galecki is off. I'm betting on Baldwin to win.

BEST TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
Boardwalk Empire (HBO)
Breaking Bad (AMC)
Downton Abbey (PBS)
The Newsroom (HBO)
Homeland (Showtime)
COMMENTS: All cable (and PBS) again. Homeland is problably the favorite.

Connie Britton, Nashville (ABC)
Claire Danes, Homeland (Showtime)
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife (CBS)
Glenn Close, Damages (DirecTV)

COMMENTS: No Madeleine Stowe this year, but Connie Britton is in. Anyone's game here, but rooting for Britton.

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A TELEVISION SERIES – DRAMA
Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire (HBO)
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad (AMC)
Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom (HBO)
Jon Hamm, Mad Men (AMC)

Archie Panjabi, The Good Wife (CBS)
Maggie Smith, Downtown Abbey (Masterpiece) (PBS)

Max Greenfield, New Girl (Fox)
Danny Huston, Magic City (Starz)
Ed Harris, Game Change (mini-series) (HBO)
Mandy Patinkin, Homeland (Showtime)
Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family (ABC)
COMMENTS: Eric Stonestreet is nominated again this year. Ty Burrell was also worthy of a nomination, but nice to see a comedy in the mix with Max Greenfield added this year.
