Emmy Nominees: Best Directing for a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/5, picking “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and “The Office” over “Nurse Jackie” and “30 Rock

The nominees:
“Glee” (Pilot)
“Glee” (Wheels)
“Modern Family” (Pilot)
“Nurse Jackie” (Pilot)
“30 Rock” (I Do Do)

The future of comedy, it appears, is bright! We have three pilots recognized here, and all three are also nominated for Best Comedy Series and boast fifteen acting nods among them. I didn’t foresee the love for “Nurse Jackie,” though I was correct about a second episode of “Glee” earning a nomination. While this season of “30 Rock” has been uneven, the season finale was strong and therefore its inclusion here is perfectly fine.

Who should win? “Modern Family”
Who will win? “Modern Family” or “Glee” – take your pick. I’m betting on “Glee.”
