Primetime Emmys 2009 Picks

Here are my picks for the Primtime Emmys 2009. I haven’t done this in a very long time and thought it was something I could do before the USC at Washington game. Washington won 16-13. Yay! Now UCLA needs to keep up their run!! Anyways, here are my picks for various categories that I have somewhat knowledge of. This can entail me actually watching the shows or my large celebrity, all things Hollywood mind. Lets see how well I do come Monday..
