Nominees: The Big Bang Theory (CBS), Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO), Girls (HBO), Modern Family (ABC), 30 Rock (NBC), Veep (HBO)

Great comedies all. This is the way I see it: The bloom is off the Curb Your Enthusiasm and 30 Rock roses, and Jim Parsons already put The Big Bang Theory on the Emmy map. Girls has the buzz, but I don't see it getting an Emmy ... yet. Veep is fantastic but doesn't feel as though it's peaked (again ... yet). Modern Family should win, continuing its roll, the bloom not off its rose. Yet.

Bottom line: Rooting for Big Bang Theory, but Modern Family will win.
