This is a particularly difficult year to divine which way the Emmy winds will blow — toward past favorites or strong new drama and comedy contenders. Here's my wish list, and in some cases the usual wild guesses, about how it will all go down at Sunday's ceremony on ABC (8/7c) with Jimmy Kimmel's much anticipated first turn as host.
Larry David, Kate Hudson
It's not a new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, but Larry David's upcoming HBO movie Clear History is starting to sound like a pretty good placeholder.
David, 65, revealed the cast and plot for his upcoming film, which will include Jon Hamm...
All your favorites may be returning for the sixth season of Mad Men.
Elisabeth Moss, January Jones and Vincent Kartheiser are reportedly finalizing two-year deals that would see them continue with the series into Season 7, Deadline reports.

Question: Frankly, the Emmys should just be the Cable Television Awards now, and they can have a "special mention" category for everything on broadcast. I don't have cable, I don't want cable, and I haven't seen any of the nominees from cable. There just isn't enough room these days for the leftovers, no matter how good broadcast shows may be, so there's not much point watching the awards. — ACS
Damian Lewis and Claire Danes
Emmy voters are creatures of habit, known for nominating the same shows and stars year after year. Many deserve to be: Modern Family, Mad Men and their stellar casts, to name a select few. But in each of the top categories, there's opportunity to welcome new blood or correct past oversights. So here's a short list of some of the breakthroughs and/or underdogs I'd love to see make the cut when the nominations are announced Thursday morning....
Although we cheered for Mad Men's Peggy Olsen (Elisabeth Moss) when she left Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce in her rearview in the waning episodes of Season 5, we soon were left with a scary thought: Could we never see Peggy again?
Have Mad Men fans seen the last of Elisabeth Moss' Peggy?
Things only got worse when cast member Jared Harris — who definitely won't be back (RIP, Lane!) — hinted that Moss had also said her goodbyes. But fear not: Moss says she'll be back, and she even knows a few pieces of Peggy's story. "I do know certain things about what's going to happen," Moss tells TVGuide.com. "I think that she's forever linked to Don in some way. Obviously, it's Don's show, but they're going to have some interaction."
Read on to get Moss' thoughts on Peggy's empowering journey this season, how Don (Jon Hamm) let Peggy down this year, and how Moss approached filming some of those tough final scenes. Plus: Where the heck did Peggy's boyfriend Abe go?

"Are you alone?"
That was the rather loaded question facing Mad Men's Don Draper (Jon Hamm) as the AMC drama ended its fifth season. Would Don, who had finally given into his wife Megan's desire to be an actress by getting her a job in a shoe commercial, go back to his philandering ways?
Mad Men Finale: Chasing phantoms and being alone
"When you see the face of Don at the end of the last episode, you say, "Oh, that's where that guy's been," creator Matthew Weiner tells TVGude.com. "I recognize him."
But Weiner says that doesn't mean Don is just going to throw his marriage out the window...
