It's that time of year again, The "Primetime Emmy Awards" are this Sunday night at 8:00pm on Fox. I usually like to print out the nominees and compete with friends to see who can get the most right. I must admit it is hard because I don't watch all the nominated shows or actors but I usually do pretty well. Please feel free to play along.
