This year’s Emmy awards, hosted by Jimmy Fallon on Sunday night (and which we’ll be live-blogging: see you there!), are shaping up to be a showdown between stalwarts (such as 30 Rock, Mad Men, Lost, Glenn Close, and Alec Baldwin) and first-timers (like Glee, Modern Family, The Good Wife, and Nurse Jackie). Can the standard-bearers hold it down? Will Glee or Modern Family rack up the most awards? Is it finally Jon Hamm’s year? Will Conan have his sweet revenge? Can anyone stop Sue Sylvester? Vulture predicts the future, in the slideshow.
