10. Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Christina Hendricks, Mad Men
Chandra Wilson, Greys Anatomy* - should win

As you can see, Me and the Emmys completely disagree in most categories. They seriously omitted a lot of great television - such as Californication, Fringe and Pushing Daises and some terrific performances, such as Jennifer Carpenter, John Noble and January Jones. I will only forgive them if they give Aaron Paul the win.

P.s - Justin Timberlake can now call himself an Emmy Nominee! How awesome is that?
