Emmy Picks 2011

It’s that time of year again. The Emmys are airing tomorrow. I thought I should put my picks in now. This isn’t necessarily who I think will win, but these are my choices for who I want to win. Do you know who you want to win? Take a look below and prepare for tomorrow’s award show.

Outstanding Comedy

  • Glee
  • 30 Rock
  • Modern Family
  • Parks and Recreation
  • The Big Bang Theory
  • The Office
    My Pick: The Big Bang Theory, because I love every minute of it. It’s true I adore Glee, but I don’t think that last season was worth an Emmy.
