Michael's 2010 Primetime Emmy Nomination Predictions

With less that 24 hours until the Emmy nominations are announced, everyone is sharing their final predictions. For the past month I've written about the actors and shows that I think deserve nominations, but below are my guesses for who will receive actual nominations in the top ten categories (I didn't bother to predict guest acting, writing, and directing this year). They are ranked in order of their likelihood to earn a spot in the top six. Since last year there were ties in two categories that resulted in seven nominees, I've provided a seventh contender for each category, just in case.
