Baeble's Unnecessary Emmy Picks
    • FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013

    • Posted by: Matt Howard

    Although we're a music-focused website, we all spend enough time on our couches to self-identify as professional television critics. This Sunday night, CBS will air the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards, and though we won't be watching (Breaking Bad's on, duh!), we thought we'd share our expertise by divulging a list of our winners. You'll probably notice that we were heavy-handed in our selection of Breaking Bad in all categories, except for supporting actress. Skyler is the worst.

    DISCLAIMER: We are not television professionals. For those of you that gamble on ridiculous events; DO NOT trust us!

    LEAD ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES:

    Hugh Bonneville, Downton Abbey, PBS
    Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad, AMC
    Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom, HBO
    Jon Hamm, Mad Men, AMC
    Damian Lewis, Homeland, Showtime

    Because he's "the one who knocks."
