The awards show airs FOX on Sunday, Sept. 16 at 8pm

The big story of the nominations is Sopranos, who I think will ultimately win a bunch of the awards. I haven't watched anything past the first season of the show, but they got tons of buzz this year and it being their final send off I think it makes sense for them to clean up. Other than that well I'm not sure. My choices were pretty much guesses. I personally thought The Starter Wife was utter crap, but you know... people do like crap. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Masi Oka and although they already won last year I'm still hedging towards The Office over newcomers 30 Rock. Even though I personally think 30 Rock is great, the Office is even greater. What are your thoughts on this years list?
