Jessi's Emmy Picks

Note about Jessi's Emmy picks: Jessi in no way claims to understand the minds of whatever idiots vote for awards shows. Jessi feels that the best people are never nominated and then the best people nominated are never awarded. Jessi believes from the depths of her heart that it's all just an excuse to dress up anyway, but she can't stop rooting for the people she loves or crying when they fail. Jessi is also more than ready to stop speaking of herself in third person, so here we go:

Each category will contain a should have been nominated but wasn't, a should win and a I bet will win.

Antiques Roadshow is a reality series??? Oh my. I think Ice Road Truckers should have been nominated - although, they are only on ice roads this season - no frozen lakes, oceans, or seas - just frozen asphalt.

I'm with you on the Big Bang Theory. I love that show! And, I think Julia Louis-Dreyfus should win. I think she is hilarious!

I don't watch enough TV to even offer an opinion but I luuuuuurve 30 Rock and find that Alec Baldwin is way funnier than I ever thought possible. And b/c of Liz Lemon I want to start wearing berets.
