Emmy Nominations 2009

The 61st annual Emmy awards take place on Sunday September 20, 2009 this year at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California and will be televised on CBS from 8-11 PM EST. Nominees will be announced by Chandra Wilson, Grey’s Anatomy and Jim Parsons, Big Bang Theory alongside Academy Chairman and CEO, John Shaffner. EW has learned that Neil Patrick Harris will be hosting this year’s ceremony which should be a great plug for the deeply underrated How I Met Your Mother.

This year, the voters are electing 6 nominees per category, an increase from the standard 5 in years past. June 26 is the deadline to return all nominating ballots to Ernst & Young for tabulation. If we’re lucky, there will be another leak of the Top 10 nominees in major categories similar to 2007 broken by TheEnvelope.com.

My predictive nominations may be slightly swayed by the shows I actually watch. Here nonetheless is my Top 3 predictions in the Comedy genre (in order of expected winner):
Best Comedy Series: 30 Rock, The Office, Entourage
Best Lead Actor (Comedy): Alec Baldwin 30 Rock, Steve Carrell The Office, Zachary Levi Chuck
Best Lead Actress (Comedy): Tina Fey 30 Rock, Julia Louis Dreyfus New Christine, Amy Poehler Parks and Recreation
Best Supporting Actor (Comedy): Neil Patrick Harris HIMYM, Jeremy Piven Entourage, Rainn Wilson The Office
Best Supporting Actress (Comedy): Holland Taylor Two and a Half Men, Jaime Pressly Earl, Cobie Smulders HIMYM
