The Emmies 2012! They Are Coming!!


Awhile ago the Primetime Emmies nominations were announced, and the anticipation for the telecast is mounting.  Airing on Sunday, September 23rd, 2012, and featuring a plethora of stars who inhabit our television screens all the time.  The night for us includes bets and junk food and mocking of fashion choices.  Eye rolling at the winners who should be losers also occurs as well.

So, here is my fearless predictions for the  winners!  And you can check out fellow blogger @justalillost for her predictions!
