Primetime Emmy Awards 2013

The list of nominees for the Emmy Awards 2013 is up, and so is my excitement level! Below you can see the list of nominees in all major categories as presented by the http://www.cbsnews.com website (the full list of nominees with all categories can be found on the http://www.emmys.com website), as well as what my pick is for each of these categories. My pick represents my own personal choice and my decision behind it could vary depending on performance, cast, or my own feelings toward the show. If you’d like to discuss any of my winner picks, feel free to drop me a comment. And yes, I’m well aware quite a lot of these will not be as I want them to be, but that does not mean they’re less deserving of the award.
