Can you feel the excitement? No? Well, regardless, the nominations for the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards will be announced tomorrow morning! Who will score a coveted nod? Perhaps the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences will honor departing dramas like ER, Boston Legal, and Battlestar Galactica for their final seasons? Maybe multi-camera comedies, such as The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother, will steal the spotlight back from their single-camera brethren? Personally, we'd love to see deserving long shots like Eastbound & Down and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia get some recognition — but we won't get our hopes up. If you're looking for predictions in every category, check with Tom O'Neil, but here's the surest (and most boring) bet: All emerging trends will take a backseat to news that 30 Rock and Mad Men — last year's winners for Best Comedy and Best Drama, which were together responsible for a combined 34 nods — will be nominated again for practically everything. We guess we're cool with that.
