We're taking a break from the list of Best Actors of All Time to talk about the Emmys
Tonight will be the 66th Emmys. I am going to try to live tweet them again this year (@CatholicSkywalk), but I might not because I still have a lot of work to do before tomorrow
My wife and I watch a LOT of TV. But so many of the shows we love don't get nominated.
Anyway, here are my choices for what I would like to win, and my predictions for what I think will win.

I have to admit I'm not that good at picking Emmy winners.
I am curious if Breaking Bad is going to be big this year or not. The final episodes were amazing, but they aired over a year ago. Voters might think that they are now old news.
I still am pulling for Bialik to win an Emmy. Her work on The Big Bang Theory has only gotten better and better.
And while I think that Cranston should go out on top, I think voters might just give McConaughey the win as a reward for his massive renaissance And while I wasn't a fan of the mostly boring True Detective, his performance is top notch.
As to the other categories, my rule of thumb for choosing winners is this: find the one that is the furthest away from traditional Catholic morality and you have a better chance at winning.
