So this is it! Tomorrow, the nominations will be announced at 11:30 here on the East Coast, and I am super excited to say the least. This has been a particularly brutal process picking the nominees this year, as there are simply too many good contenders to choose from. There are going to be so many surprises tomorrow morning, all of our predictions are either going to look great or be completely off. But that is why I love the Emmys. There is something exciting about their unpredictability. Here is my final, final, final list:
