    Who do you think is going to think this year at the Emmys?

    I’m hoping for Taraji to win, especially after the lousy way she was treated on Person of Interest, but I would be OK with Viola as well.

    I’m rooting for Taraji all the way, but I would not be surprised (or disappointed) if Viola won.  The “wig” scene may have sealed the win for Viola.

    I know a lot of people hope that Taraji and Viola split the “black vote” and the win goes to Tatiana or one of the other nominees. I’ve been buzzing around online and many folks think that a Taraji or Viola win can only be about politics and not about the fact that they were just better.  And get this, they can ‘accept’ a Viola win (how generous), but Taraji taking the prize is unthinkable.

    I think some of these women are pissed about Taraji ascending professionally after the POI disaster, and the fact that Jim Caviezel has been very vocal about how much he misses her still. In their minds, these are two things that should not have happened at all.  So in these haters minds, Taraji has already ‘won’ things she should not have.  She doesn’t need the Emmy too.

      This article gives the award to Elizabeth Moss from Mad Men – with a basic nod of understanding that TPH could run off with the win.

      I watched Mad Men, and I agree with the writer.  Moss should have won by now.  So I could see this win happening.

      Still rooting for Taraji though…

        I’m going to hurl if Moss gets it. I honestly don’t think she comes close to Taraji, or Viola or Tatiana. Those 3 ARE their shows, on Mad Men that’s Jon Hamm not Elizabeth Moss.

        I think if she gets it, it will be because her show is over and the voters want to honor her before she rides off into the sunset.

    As far as I’m concerned, Tatiana should have been nominated for either Season 1 or 2 – or perhaps both.  So I’m rather annoyed that she gets a nomination during her lackluster Season 3 – the same year that both Taraji and Viola receive some shine after doing stellar work. And another entertainment pundit is giving Tatiana the Emmy win.  I know these early predictions aren’t always correct, but I’m peeved that neither Taraji nor Viola are predicted to land in the victory circle.

    I have seen several sites predict Viola will get it, I’ll have to start posting links when I come across them!

    Then you see ridiculous statements like this:

    “A win for Davis or Henson also might dilute any lingering criticism over the Emmy voters’ failure to nominate “Empire,” the year’s hottest show, as best drama.”
