Who Will Win: No one really knows what goes on in the Emmy voting offices. They can be grossly out of touch and favor the easy pick, or choose literally the last person you'd expect to win, especially in those years when they're extra thirsty to prove they're, um, hip. It's possible that, since Outstanding Comedy Series is a long shot for Parks And Recreation, they'll show Amy some love. But, then again, last year they threw us for a loop and gave the statue to Edie Falco for Nurse Jackie. We expect her to win again, following a strong Jackie season.
Who Should Win: As much as we love Tina Fey, her shelf is looking pretty full. It's Amy Poehler's time to shine.
Who Was Snubbed: Is Chuck technically a comedy? Because if so, then Yvonne Strahovski definitely deserves a nod for her work as the straight woman among nerds on NBC's fledgling dramedy.
