EmmysIt’s time for the 65th annual Emmy Awards, and it airs on Sunday, September 22nd at 8pm EST on CBS. I was going to post the entire list of nominees when I realized that it’s 71 pages long on Microsoft Word. Uhm, no thanks. So I’ll just post the most popular categories. I didn’t even scroll to the 71st page, so you can check out the full list of nominees for yourself here. The ones I’m rooting for are highlighted in pink.I’m shocked that Jeff Perry (Cyrus on Scandal) didn’t get nominated. So who are you rooting for?
