Most years, the best we can hope for from an Emmy night is a few new winners and a few (arguably, as always) correct winners. This year, the probability for fresh blood at the winners' podium is especially high, given what a terrific season it was for freshman series. (The same will not be said for the batch of new shows about to premiere over the next month.) What follows aren't exactly predictions, because that game can be such an unhappy crapshoot, given the capricious nature of Emmy voters, who tend to vote for what they've always voted for, year after year — until they suddenly don't.

What a week I have in front of me!
Before I hit the gym today — because you know I have to get my fitness on in order to get my tux on and be red carpet-ready this weekend — we have our first script read-through for TV Guide Network.
The sassy Tanika Ray, the consummate Chris Harrison and I will be going over our scripts and talking about the general way things will happen during this Sunday's Emmys pre-show, the potential clips — plus...
When Chris Harrison hosts TV Guide Network's red-carpet show before the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards, one thing he'll be prepared for is fashion talk. "You can't shy away, fashion's important, that's what a lot of people want to see," he told TVGuide.com. Harrison also discusses his preparations, what shows he's rooting for, and why he wants Jim Parsons and Sofia Vergara to win.
Fashion expert Lawrence Zarian will be blogging on TVGuide.com leading up to the Emmy Awards on Aug. 29. He'll also host Emmys Red Carpet Fashion Wrap with Lawrence Zarian, which premieres on TV Guide Network on Monday, Aug. 30 at 8/7c.
