Idol Headlines for 09/20/09

Who will win Emmys and why: All award mysteries finally explained (including why crazy Hollywooders keep voting for schizo roles)

Basically, I think Emmys are going to make like a TV repeat this year and bring back last year’s winners in all top series races: best drama (“Mad Men”), lead drama actor (Bryan Cranston, “Breaking Bad”), lead drama actress (Glenn Close, “Damages”), best comedy (“30 Rock”), lead actor (Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”), lead actress (Tina Fey, “30 Rock”). Here is my full list of predictions, which you should compare with those of other experts pooled by Gold Derby.

Believe it or not, such mass repetition has never happened ‘” all of the top champs returning, that is. It may seem like Emmy winners get rubber-stamped all the time and they often do, but not en masse like that.
