The Emmy Awards are airing Sunday evening.  I wanted to do a predictions sheet, see how many I would get right. But I quickly discovered that who I thought would win and who I wanted to win are two completely different things (for the most part).   So here they are – who I think WILL win, and also who I WANT to win.
