They’re Here~ My Big Bold 2013 Emmy Nomination Predictions!

hoc-ph-22120r-babd299b44de4b096fc2d563c31bb2398737e5d5-s6-c30Just a week after I apologized for my lack of posts, I am keeping my promise to give you my take on the upcoming Emmy nominations. And here they are. While I may have less time to devote to my blog, I’m still obsessed with awards shows and this year’s Emmy race is a really exciting one. We could see a ton of new blood from shows like House of Cards, Scandal and The Newsroom while we also could witness a decline in nods for previous faves like Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire plus the return of Arrested Development will be a factor. So, just who do I think will make the final cut when the nods are announced on Thursday morning? Check out my big bold Emmy nominations predictions below!
