Thoughts? Is it a completely forgone conclusion that 30 Rock and Mad Men will clean up? Any nice surprises in there, people you're secretly rooting for?

I would say it's a crime if Michael Emerson doesn't win on his third nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama. Also, Mad Men has three(!) of the four nominations for Best Writing...which would make it that much sweeter if "The Incident" came out on top in an upset.

I haven't seen Flight of the Conchords, but I'd also find it amusing if its sole nomination outdid 30 Rock's four nominations.
