Dueling Emmy predictions: Mike versus Tom

August 13, 2010 |  1:25 pm

Entertainment Weekly's Mike Ausiello and I mostly agree on who'll win Emmys in the top series races Aug. 29. However, there are significant differences in our rankings per category, and there is drastic disagreement over how we size up the contest for best comedy actor. I've got Tony Shalhoub ("Monk") in first place, Mike's got him in last!

Note: My predix are still a bit tentative. I haven't seen a few of the episodes submitted to Emmy judges by nominees as examples of their best work. When I finish up that viewing in a few days, I may make a few changes. Mike may want to make a few last-minute switcheroos too? Meantime, thank you, Mike, for piping in.

I love Ausiello, but his Comedy Lead Actor predictions are crazy. I'd like to hear him defend putting Tony Shaloub in 6th place. I suspect that means he hasn't seen Shaloub's submission tape. I don't know anyone who has seen the tape rank Shaloub 6th.

If Glenn Close does not win for her intelligent, subtle, outrageous, Intense, determined, shocking, inevitably and consistenly moving portrayal of a borderline - or not - crazy woman in a power position over you two critics' first and second choice actresses (Julianna Margulies & Connie Britton), then the absurdity of TV critics as a "profession - as in "professional" - will be clearly cemented forever after. Amen and Ahem!
