Emmy predictions: Comedy series writing and directing

August 17, 2010 |  9:41 am

The series premiere episode of "Glee" is so joyous and entertaining that I find it hard to believe that it won't win the Emmys for comedy writing and direction, but Chris "Boomer" Beachum and Rob Licuria (Awards Heaven) don't agree that it's a cinch in both races. Boomer puts it ahead for direction but not for writing. Rob puts it out front for writing but not directing.
