News is looking bad for our longstanding campaign to get Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg to sing their Emmy-winning “Dick in a Box” on Sunday’s Emmy telecast. The only news since Monday has been an E! Online rumor that Timberlake might make an appearance, but not to sing. Expect that to be just another in the long line of Emmy disappointments — which began way back on nomination day with the snubbing of The Wire, as well as nearly every other program you actually like, and will continue to the very end of the broadcast, when Grey’s Anatomy or some shit wins for Best Drama.
While we’re at it, our predictions:
Best Comedy Series: The Office
Best Drama Series: Surely they have to give it to The Sopranos, right? But who knows!
Best Reality Series: American Idol
Lead Actor, Comedy: Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
Lead Actor, Drama: James Gandolfini, The Sopranos
Lead Actress, Comedy: America Ferrera, Ugly Betty
Lead Actress, Drama: Edie Falco, The Sopranos
Supporting Actor, Comedy: Jeremy Piven, Entourage
Supporting Actor, Drama: William Shatner, Boston Legal
Supporting Actress, Comedy: Elizabeth Perkins, Weeds
Supporting Actress, Drama: Chandra Wilson, Grey’s Anatomy
Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music, or Comedy Program: A bunch of dudes
Wanted: Timberlake at the Emmys! [E!]
