Editors' Emmy Picks

It's that time of year, when CableFAX editors make predictions of who will (or should) win Emmys Sun. Bragging rights and a free soda are on the line as editors Amy Maclean and Kaylee Hultgren make their picks.

Outstanding Comedy and Outstanding Lead Actress and Actor in a Comedy
Amy: HBO's "Girls" has heaps of praise, but the boys of CBS ' "The Big Bang Theory" take this one. "Girls'" Lena Dunham may bring home an actress win. As best actor, Louis C.K. of FX's "Louie." Kaylee: I totally disagree. "Girls" will win precisely because of the press—which, by the way, was not all good. Best Actress is the "adorkable" Zooey Deschanel and for Best Actor I agree on Louie. We'll split the soda.

Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actress and Actor in a Drama Amy: AMC's "Breaking Bad" has this one, finally. Showtime's "Homeland" should get it, but its newbie status will prevent that. Still, Claire Danes has an excellent shot at lead actress. Jon Hamm finally wins, but Bryan Cranston should. Kaylee: Though I agree Hamm deserves it for previous performances, this season was not "outstanding." Cranston will clinch his 4th. For Drama it's "Downton Abbey." No argument with Claire Danes.

Outstanding Miniseries or Movie and Lead Actress and Actor in a Mini/Movie Amy: Sorry, "American Horror Story." History's "Hatfields & McCoys" is going to (and should) win. Best actress? Honey Boo Boo. Kidding. Julianne Moore should win for her transformation into Sarah Palin in HBO's "Game Change." Kevin Costner or Bill Paxton for best actor. Kaylee: Agree "Hatfields," but will go with Connie Britton for lead actress. Idris Elba as John Luther should win for best actor.

Outstanding Variety Series
Amy: As much as I love Colbert and Stewart, it's Jimmy Kimmel's year. Kaylee: I'm going with Colbert. His show recently has upped the "variety," adding more music acts and zany numbers than in the past.
