Fans watching the show tonight will be genuinely surprised by the results because a new voting system has made predictions nearly impossible.
As the television world gathers in Hollywood in a few hours to honor its best, a new voting system implemented this year has even the strongest pundits shrugging their shoulders as to who will win. When quality hit shows like Lost and Desperate Housewives don’t even get nominated a year after sweeping the awards, the difference in this year’s awards became apparent. The Conan O’Brien hosted program begins at 8 p.m. on NBC. Even more mystery surrounds the event than who will walk away with the statuette. There is a reported Aaron Spelling tribute that may or may not see the light of day. Because of the family troubles in the Spelling clan, producers were not sure how to handle having a family in the middle of a real life Dynasty showdown remember their legendary patriarch. Chalk the Spelling tribute as another question mark in tonight’s activities. Given the nominations, with 24 leading the charge, it would not be too surprising to see Kiefer Sutherland get the Emmy he deserves as well as the show taking top Drama. The closest competitor is ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy who could give the anti-terrorist unit a run for its money.
