Emmy’s tonight: Let’s chat

I’ll be blogging the Emmys live right here, and we’re talking really live, starting at about 5 p.m. on the West Coast and 8 p.m. for the rest of you, since the West Coast event is tape-delayed for us. Come and join in the commenting. We’ll mock at will.

So here’s a quick list of the major categories, with our choice for who should win. And we’re not hedging with that silly who-will-win, who-should-win, who-could-win stuff that allows you to have three chances to get it right.

Lead Actress

in a Comedy Series

Felicity Huffman, “Desperate Housewives”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “The New Adventures of Old Christine”

Tina Fey, “30 Rock”

America Ferrera, “Ugly Betty”

Mary-Louise Parker, “Weeds”

Great field, but Parker lit up the screen this season.

Lead Actress

in a Drama Series

Sally Field, “Brothers & Sisters”

Kyra Sedgwick, “The Closer”

Mariska Hargitay, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”

Patricia Arquette, “Medium”

Minnie Driver, “The Riches”

Edie Falco, “The Sopranos”

They’re all winners in our book, but this is Falco’s year.

Lead Actor

in a Comedy Series

Ricky Gervais, “Extras”

Tony Shalhoub, “Monk”

Steve Carell, “The Office”

Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”

Charlie Sheen, “Two and a Half Men”

Love them all, but have to go with Alec Baldwin.

Lead Actor

in a Drama Series

James Spader, “Boston Legal”

Hugh Laurie, “House”

Denis Leary, “Rescue Me”

James Gandolfini, “The Sopranos”

Kiefer Sutherland, “24”

Anyone other than Gandolfini? Fuggedaboutit.

Supporting Actress

in a Comedy Series

Jaime Pressly, “My Name is Earl”

Jenna Fischer, “The Office”

Holland Taylor, “Two and a Half Men”

Conchata Ferrell, “Two and a Half Men”

Vanessa Williams, “Ugly Betty”

Elizabeth Perkins, “Weeds”

We’ve got to go with Perkins, although Taylor and Ferrell are our sentimental favorites.

Supporting Actress

in a Drama Series

Rachel Griffiths, “Brothers & Sisters”

Katherine Heigl, “Grey’s Anatomy”

Chandra Wilson, “Grey’s Anatomy”

Sandra Oh, “Grey’s Anatomy”

Aida Turturro, “The Sopranos”

Lorraine Bracco, “The Sopranos”

All strong performances, but Wilson stands out.

Supporting Actor

in a Comedy Series

Kevin Dillon, “Entourage”

Jeremy Piven, “Entourage”

Neil Patrick Harris, “How I Met Your Mother”

Rainn Wilson, “The Office”

Jon Cryer, “Two and a Half Men”

You’ve got to go with Wilson, if only for the bat episode.

Supporting Actor

in a Drama Series

William Shatner, “Boston Legal”

T.R. Knight, “Grey’s Anatomy”

Masi Oka, “Heroes”

Michael Emerson, “Lost”

Terry O’Quinn, “Lost”

Michael Imperioli, “The Sopranos”

Oka was the break-out star of the year, but Imperioli did some of his best work this season and deserves the Emmy.

Outstanding Comedy

“Entourage”

“The Office”

“30 Rock”

“Two and a Half Men”

“Ugly Betty”

No contest: “The Office.”

Outstanding Drama

“Boston Legal”

“Grey’s Anatomy”

“Heroes”

“House”
