Emmy Nominations 2011!

Hey everyone! It's been awhile! Due to a combination of factors (including the new Harry Potter movie, which was awesome, and not having computer access all weekend), it's been a little quiet on the blog.

This means that I didn't do my big post on the 2011 Emmy nominations that I was planning. But it's all good because I have come up with a better plan that will allow me to spread my coverage over the weeks as lead up to the Emmys.

What I'm planning is that I will do a post on all of the major categories discussing who's nominated and predictions in the categories. I'm going to do this over the next 9 Thursdays (with one Tuesday in the middle), starting with this Thursday.

The schedule is what follows:

Thursday July 21st: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy
Thursday July 28th: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy
Thursday August 4th: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy
Thursday August 11th: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy
Thursday August 18th: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama
Thursday August 25th: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama
Thursday September 1st: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama
Thursday September 8th: Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama
Tuesday September 13th: Outstanding Drama Series
Thursday September 15th: Outstanding Comedy Series

After the jump I have a list in all of the major categories (and others that I will be keeping an eye on during the Emmys) from the nomination list.
