Emmy Nominations 2010

The 62nd annual Emmy awards take place on Sunday August 29, 2010 this year at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, California and will be televised on NBC from 8-11 PM EST. New late, late night king, Jimmy Fallon will take on the hosting duties. Nominees will be announced by Joel McHale, Community and Sofia Vergara, Modern Family alongside Academy Chairman and CEO, John Shaffner.

This year’s talent pool for Best Comedy is deep with many new series poised to take a run at 3-time defending champion 30 Rock. Last year’s list included 6 potential hopefuls and if the Board keeps at that, my predictions include: an up and down but still better than the rest 30 Rock, a rebirth of Arrested Development in Modern Family, following in The Office’s footsteps Parks and Recreation, Seinfeld themed Curb Your Enthusiasm, best traditional comedy Big Bang Theory and best new pop culture favorite How I Met Your Mother (although it sounds like Glee is the critic’s darling).
