Heading in to the big night, the spotlight is shining on "Breaking Bad" as it enters the final weeks of its final season. The show has yet to win for Outstanding Drama, so it's now or never. But it faces stiff competition from the 2013 Emmy winner, "Homeland" as well as previous winner "Mad Men" and the new kid on the block, HBO's "Game of Thrones".
Flashback to 2012: 'Modern Family' and 'Homeland' win big at 2012 Emmys
"Modern Family" seems poised for yet another victory in Outstanding Comedy, but "Louie" and it's headlining star, Louie C.K., could be poised to get a nifty trophy to prove that is in fact the best comedy on TV. Don't be surprised however if voters give it to "30 Rock" for its final season, which ended nearly nine months ago.
Acting awards are up for grab as well. Kevin Spacey seems like the logical choice to take home an Emmy for Lead Actor in a Drama, but again, hard to say no to Walter White -- er, I mean Bryan Cranston. On the women's side, Vera Farmiga should win for her chilling portrayal as Mother Bates on A&E's "Bates Motel", but probably won't.
You can check out my predictions below, but keep in mind I'm a simple TV and movie columnist, not a scientist.
