Mad Men and 30 Rock to Be Nominated for Tons of Emmys Again


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.
