The 2007 Primetime Emmy Awards: My Take

Ever since the nominations for the 2007 Primetime Emmy Awards were announced, I've been thinking — a lot — about who will be taking home the awards on Sunday. While there are always surprises, here are my best guesses. Don't forget to fill out your ballot for a chance to win a year of free TV!

OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES
My prediction: "The Sopranos." I don't see Emmy voters passing up their last chance to recognize this instant classic.
Secretly rooting for: "The Sopranos." It wasn't my favorite show, but it opened the door for so many other edgy, risky series.

OUTSTANDING COMEDY SERIES
My prediction: "The Office." It was an up-and-down season, sure, but when it's on, it's unbeatable.
Secretly rooting for: "30 Rock." It probably doesn't deserve the win, but it turned into a comedy gem by the end of the season.

For my take on all the acting categories,

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES
My prediction: James Gandolfini. Like the show itself, he's become an icon.
Secretly rooting for: Hugh Laurie. The man needs some Emmy love, and soon.

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES
My prediction: Kyra Sedwick. It's a divisive performance, but those who like her love her.
Secretly rooting for: Minnie Driver. She really won me over as "The Riches" went on.

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES
My prediction: Steve Carell. "The Office" wouldn't be what it is without him.
Secretly rooting for: Alec Baldwin or Ricky Gervais. This category has three of my favorite funny men, and I'd be happy for any of them to win.

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES
My prediction: America Ferrera. They've got to reward at least one breakout star, and Ferrera's got the momentum.
Secretly rooting for: Mary-Louise Parker. Whether you call what she does comedy or drama, she's one of my favorite performers on TV today.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES
My prediction: Michael Emerson. He gives dimension to a character who could be just pure evil.
Secretly rooting for: Masi Oka. He's lovable, and he had one of the best acting performances of the "Heroes" season.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES
My prediction: Lorraine Bracco. She's finally in the proper category as a supporting actress, and I think she'll ride the "Sopranos" wave.
Secretly rooting for: Chandra Wilson. She's mostly under-the-radar, but she delivers one of the strongest performances on "Grey's."

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES
My prediction: Jeremy Piven. I'm about done with Ari, but he still delivers a consistent, funny performance.
Secretly rooting for: Rainn Wilson. Fact: He's one of the funniest guys around.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES
My prediction: Elizabeth Perkins. This is the category I had the toughest time predicting, but Perkins' icy-cold comebacks deserve an award of their own.
Secretly rooting for: Jenna Fischer. She has some of the best comic timing on TV today, and who wouldn't root for Pam?

I'd love to see Hugh Laurie and Chandra Wilson win, but I think your predictions are right, Buzz. Some of these categories are tough calls, others--like Outstanding Drama Series--are a bit more predictable. Looking forward to watching on Sunday.
