My Emmy vice
We enjoy superficial TV award ceremonies as much as anyone else; we just wish the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences would ask us, occasionally, who really deserves to win. This year, we want you to cast your choices on the Emmy ballot below by Thursday, 5 p.m. EST. We've thrown in a few choices (in red) that the Academy left off -- but that we thought were worthy of your consideration. Then on Friday, we'll announce your picks -- as well as our own.
