Below, our experts Chris "Boomer" Beachum, Rob Licuria (AwardsHeaven.net) and I rank the nominees for best comedy series, actor and actress. All three of us expect recent Emmy winning streaks to end. "30 Rock" has won best comedy series for three years in a row, but we say "Modern Family" will prevail on Aug. 29. "30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin has won for the last two years, but Chris and I think three-time past champ Tony Shalhoub will get a parting gift now that "Monk" has left the airwaves. Rob predicts the gold will go to Jim Parsons ("Big Bang Theory"). Our predictions are largely based upon knowing which sample episodes have been submitted to Emmy judges by the nominees. See the list here.
