If you are wondering why my picks snub the favorites to win like the Sopranos and Entourage...I personally think the Cable channels should have a category of their own. They're allowed more freedom then the network channels. So those are my picks if I were running the Emmys. :)

[ UPDATE: WOW! Only one of my picks won. Jaime Pressly from "My name is Earl". I knew the Sopranos would probably sweep it. But James Spader??! Really??!!]

$$$$$$$$$$$

Also Don't forget to stop by Nursing Voices and NursingJobs !!!!

It's well worth the time! (Yes I'm gonna keep trying for the iphone)
