Taking a guess at the Emmy Awards

On July 14, the nominees for the Emmy Awards were announced. I’m gonna list which nominations pleased me, which surprised me, who/what got snubbed and then I’ll try to predict categories as to who I want/expect to win (Programing and Acting for now – Directing and Writing I’ll try and guess later). For the record, I mostly watch comedy shows, so don’t take me too seriously. After all, I’m just one more person trying to play the guess game, it’s fun. ­čśŤ
