Emmy Predictions: Directing in a Comedy Series

The Nominees:

1. Glee - Pilot
2. Glee - Wheels
3. Modern Family - Pilot
4. Nurse Jackie - Pilot
5. 30 Rock - I Do Do

Should Win/Will Win - Glee - Pilot

Commentary: If Modern Family is a writer's paradise, then Glee is a director's paradise, flashy, big numbers, and an even bigger production require a skilled director to put together, aka Ryan Murphy for Glee's wonderful Pilot. I was glad that the Wheels episode also got nominated, and hope that it doesn't steal votes away. I was also thrilled with all of the Nurse Jackie love,  but I think that it may have to settle for the Best Actress award. Finally, the 30 Rock episode was funny, and if the Emmys still love the show, it may steal a win, but my guess is that the 30 Rock train will be derailed by either Glee or Modern Family come Sunday night.
