  1. I really hope Tatiana Maslany wins for Orphan Black. She is amazing and deserves an award for the many roles she plays. I have to say, I don’t understand why Modern Family was nominated, it really isn’t that entertaining or funny anymore.

  2. They have a great line up this year! I wish all the nominees good luck and may the most deserving one win! I can’t wait to watch the awards show.

  3. I may have to tune in and see if you were right about your predictions. I’ll make some predictions of my own first.

  4. There is so many options to choose from. I like watching and let the drama build up some. But I do agree with you on one thing though: How can you NOT love House?

  5. If who will win I think they all deserve to be a winner. They are all amazing.

  6. All of these shows are great. Although I haven’t watched them all, I heard a lot of good reviews.

  7. I don’t recognize any of these shows. I don’t usually watch very much television.

    I do like “The Killing” and HGTV type shows.
