The 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards will air live on Fox Sunday, September 18 from 8-11 p.m. ET and we've got the complete list of nominees along with our predictions for who will win and, more importantly, who should win!

This year's list of nominees for the 63rd annual Emmy Awards is stocked largely with the same series as previous years (Mad Men, Dexter, The Office, 30 Rock, etc.). However, there are some notable newcomers, including HBO's Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire and NBC's long-snubbed Friday Night Lights.

Here's a look at the complete list of nominees and our predictions for who will win Sunday night, as well as who really deserves the award. Our predictions for the win will appear in bold, while who we think deserves the prize will appear underlined.

Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below!


Outstanding Drama Series

    Boardwalk Empire


    Friday Night Lights

    Game of Thrones

    The Good Wife

    Mad Men

AMC's Mad Men has a monopoly on this award, and just about every critic predicts it will win again this year. Mad Men, is fantastic, don't get me wrong, but the completely underrated and under-watched Friday Night Lights deserves every bit of its nomination after four seasons going unrecognized by the Emmys. One can hope, right?

Outstanding Comedy Series

    Big Bang Theory


    Modern Family

    The Office

    Parks and Recreation

    30 Rock

30 Rock or Modern Family - that is the question. NBC's 30 Rock ruled this category until ABC's Modern Family swept in during the 2010 awards and snatched it up. Season Two of Modern Family kept the laugh-o-meter pretty darn high and we're predicting another win in 2011.

Outstanding Actress in a Drama

    Kathy Bates, Harry's Law

    Connie Britton, Friday Night Lights

    Mireille Enos, The Killing

    Mariska Hargitay, Law and Order: SVU

    Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife

    Elisabeth Moss, Mad Men

CBS's The Good Wife is right up the Academy's alley, and the voters love Margulies. While she will likely win, we vote for Connie Britton who's dramatic decision in the final episodes of NBC's Friday Night Lights brought women across America to tears.

Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama

    Kelly Macdonald, Boardwalk Empire

    Archie Panjabi, The Good Wife

    Christine Baranski, The Good Wife

    Margo Martindale, Justified

    Michelle Forbes, The Killing

    Christina Hendricks, Mad Men

Critics are unanimous that Margo Martindale's riveting portrayal of Mags Bennett, the matriarch of a crime family in FX's Justified, is a shoe-in for the win. We couldn't agree more.

 Outstanding Actor in a Drama

    Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire

    Kyle Chandler, Friday Night Lights

    Michael C. Hall, Dexter

    John Hamm, Mad Men

    Hugh Laurie, House

    Timothy Olyphant, Justified

It looks like 2011 may finally be the year that John Hamm gets his long awaited Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a Drama. Why this year? Due to the show's timing, three-time winner Bryan Cranston, of Breaking Bad, is not in the running.

 Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama

    Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones

    Josh Charles, The Good Wife

    Alan Cumming, The Good Wife

    Walton Goggins, Justified

    John Slattery, Mad Men

    Andrew Braugher, Men of a Certain Age

This one is always tough, as it's a category that favors variety. There have been no repeat winners since 1996 and none of this year's nominees have ever won this category. While John Slattery may win after four nominations, he didn't have the strongest plot line on the last season of AMC's Mad Men. Our vote's on Peter Dinklage of HBO's Game of Thrones.

 Outstanding Actress in a Comedy

    Edie Falco, Nurse Jackie

    Tina Fey, 30 Rock

    Laura Linney, The Big C

    Melissa McCarthy, Mike & Molly

    Martha Plimpton, Raising Hope

    Amy Poehler, Parks and Recreation

The Academy loves to choose actresses in shows that tiptoe across the Comedy/Drama line. This year it looks to be Laura Linney's turn for her role in Showtime's The Big C. Fair enough, but we're still in love with Edie Falco's neurotic, pill-popping performance in Showtime's other dramedy, Nurse Jackie.

 Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy

    Jane Lynch, Glee

    Betty White, Hot In Cleveland

    Julie Bowen, Modern Family

    Sofia Vergara, Modern Family

    Kristen Wiig, Saturday Night Live

    Jane Krakowski, 30 Rock

Betty White is red hot in her golden years, and she looks primed to win for her turn in TV Land's Hot in Cleveland. White's an Emmy legend with five previous primetime victories, but our vote's on the night's presenter, Jane Lynch, of Fox's Glee.

 Outstanding Actor in a Comedy

    Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock

    Louis C.K., Louie

    Steve Carrell, The Office

    Johnny Galecki, The Big Bang Theory

    Matt LeBlanc, Episodes

    Jim Parsons, The Big Bang Theory

After six straight nominations and no more chances (since he's off the show), this is without a doubt Steve Carrell's year for his role in NBC's The Office. However, no actor was more fearless and fascinating to watch last year than Louis C.K.

 Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Comedy

    Chris Colfer, Glee

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Modern Family

    Ed O'Neill, Modern Family

    Eric Stonestreet, Modern Family

    Ty Burrell, Modern Family

    Jon Cryer, Two and a Half Men

After winning the Golden Globe in January, it looks like Chris Coffer of Fox's Glee may take the prize. However, in our book, this one pretty much boils down to which supporting actor in ABC's Modern Family is the funniest. Eric Stonestreet won last year, but if anyone deserves the award in 2011, it'd be the impeccably funny Ty Burrell.

 Outstanding Variety, Comedy Or Musical Series

    The Colbert Report


    The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

    Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

    Real Time With Bill Maher

    Saturday Night Live

Let's start by noting that Conan was nominated for an Emmy, while Jay Leno's The Tonight Show was not. Does that mean he will win? Probably not. Our vote is on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart as it has taken to top prize for eight years running.

 Outstanding Reality Show

    The Amazing Race

    American Idol

    Dancing With the Stars

    Project Runway

    So You Think You Can Dance

    Top Chef

Will ABC's the Amazing Race reclaim its seven-year run on top, or will last year's surprise upset, Bravo's Top Chef come out on top again? Our bet's on Top Chef, which totally deserved the recognition it got in 2010.

Other nominations - which we will not speculate on at this time - include:

    Cinema Verite
