2007 Emmy Predictions

by Rachel Cericola, TV Fodder Editor

It's the eve before the Emmys. As the nominees pick out their final outfits for the red carpet; we pick apart their performances. Here's who we'd like to see take the statues home tomorrow night...

Lead Actor, Comedy
alec-baldwin The Nominees Are...
  • Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
  • Tony Shalhoub, Monk
  • Steve Carell, The Office
  • Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men
  • Ricky Gervais, Extras

And the Winner Should Be...

Despite a great surrounding cast, Alec Baldwin is "30 Rock," and that's a good thing. The academy has awarded him before -- but in the supporting category. Also, they seem to think that Tony Shalhoub is the only guy that can ever win this thing.



Lead Actress, Comedy
jldreyfuss The Nominees Are...
  • Tina Fey, 30 Rock
  • Felicity Huffman, Desperate Housewives
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus, The New Adventures Of Old Christine
  • America Ferrera, Ugly Betty
  • Mary-Louise Parker, Weeds

And the Winner Should Be...

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is starting to channel her inner-Elaine in the second season of her often-overlooked sitcom. We also wouldn't mind seeing Mary-Louise nab another statue.



Supporting Actor, Comedy
KevinDillon The Nominees Are...
  • Jeremy Piven, Entourage
  • Kevin Dillon, Entourage
  • Neil Patrick Harris, How I Met Your Mother
  • Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men

And the Winner Should Be...

Possibly the toughest category this year, we'd be happy with almost any of the recipients (not so much Jon Cryer). However, we'd love to see Johnny Drama finally get some recognition outside of France.



Supporting Actress, Comedy
vwilliams The Nominees Are...
  • Jaime Pressly, My Name is Earl
  • Jenna Fischer, The Office
  • Holland Taylor, Two and a Half Men
  • Conchata Ferrell, Two and a Half Men
  • Vanessa Williams, Ugly Betty
  • Elizabeth Perkins, Weeds

And the Winner Should Be...

The academy threw an extra nominee into this category to confuse things. However, the real queen of mean is Vanessa Williams -- and she looks so damn good doing it.



Comedy Series
30Rock The Nominees Are...
  • 30 Rock
  • The Office
  • Two and a Half Men
  • Ugly Betty
  • Entourage

And the Winner Should Be...

It took them a few episodes to get going, but "30 Rock" has become the funniest show on TV. The proof is in the "Cleveland" episode, among others.



Lead Actor, Drama
jgandolfini The Nominees Are...
  • James Gandolfini, The Sopranos
  • Kiefer Sutherland, 24
  • Denis Leary, Rescue Me
  • James Spader, Boston Legal
  • Hugh Laurie, House

And the Winner Should Be...

Even though Tony Soprano never got the chance to sleep with the fishes, this is his swansong as far as the Emmy is concerned -- so he'll get to take one home.



Lead Actress, Drama
sfield2 The Nominees Are...
  • Minnie Driver, The Riches
  • Sally Field, Brothers & Sisters
  • Patricia Arquette, Medium
  • Edie Falco, The Sopranos
  • Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
  • Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer

And the Winner Should Be...

Falco could be comparing awards with her costar, but we like Sally Field -- we really like her.



Supporting Actor, Drama
mimperioli The Nominees Are...
  • Michael Imperioli, The Sopranos
  • Michael Emerson, Lost
  • Masi Oka, Heroes
  • William Shatner, Boston Legal
  • Terry O'Quinn, Lost
  • T.R. Knight, Grey's Anatomy

And the Winner Should Be...

No one could have possible predicted Shatner's previous wins. However, this year it's got to go to Imperioli. His show ended, and so did his character -- and not in the most pleasant way.



Supporting Actress, Drama
sandra_oh The Nominees Are...
  • Katherine Heigl, Grey's Anatomy
  • Chandra Wilson, Grey's Anatomy
  • Sandra Oh, Grey's Anatomy
  • Rachel Griffiths, Brothers & Sisters
  • Aida Turturro, The Sopranos
  • Lorraine Bracco, The Sopranos

And the Winner Should Be...

We've gone with "Sopranos" stars in the other categories, but not this one. The third time being nominated should be a charm for Sandra Oh.



Drama Series
sopranos The Nominees Are...
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Boston Legal
  • House
  • The Sopranos
  • Heroes

And the Winner Should Be...

"The Sopranos" didn't get 15 nominations for nothing. This is the biggie, and they should be taking it home.

The 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards air Sunday, August 27 at 8:00 p.m. (EST) on NBC.
