The 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards are on September 18th, and it's time once again for Fienberg and I to discuss whom we think should and will win(*) some of the major categories. We're continuing to double up categories in order to finish in time, this time with the two Outstanding Supporting Actor categories, for both comedy and drama.(*) As always, we remind you we do not have impressive track records at prognostication. Place your wagers (or, preferably not) accordingly.
On the comedy side, voters apparently couldn't choose from among the four men of "Modern Family" and wound up nominating them all. (And whatever role this played in Nick Offerman not getting nominated for playing Ron Effing Swanson is un-effing-acceptable.)
