My Emmy Picks

     This is my list of Emmy picks that I am doing on my own ballot, for fun.  The picks do not necessarily reflect who I think deserves it, but who I think will get it.  As per the rules I created for my own house, I am submitting first, second, and third choices for each category.  If you wish to play the same way at your home, each first place pick that you get right earns you three points, each second place win earns two points, and each third place choice wins one point.  Get it?  Good.  I have chosen to leave off categories that I don't know much about and / or care about.  Here are my choices:
