Carson and Producer Angie always love engaging in friendly bets for awards season, but the Emmy Awards have an even more special significance this year because Carson’s show The Voice is nominated!

Yes, our host with the most will be putting on his Sunday best and hobnobbing with some of TV’s biggest stars!

This morning, Carson and Angie laid out their predictions for who would be taking home a golden statue and you may be surprised at some of their picks!


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

Carson: “I think Girls is a legitimate second shot. For a brand new show, I think it legitimately has a shot. But who are we kidding? Modern Family will win this award yet again.”

Producer Angie: “I think Modern Family’s going to win, but I would love it if Girls won.”


Nominated: Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper in “The Big Bang Theory,” Larry David as Himself in “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Don Cheadle as Marty Kaan in “House of Lies,” Louis C.K. as Louie in “Louie,” Alec Baldwin as Jack Donaghy in “30 Rock,” Jon Cryer as Alan Harper in “Two and a Half Men”

Carson: “I think Jim Parsons will win and I think Louis should win and has a legitimate second chance shot. If Jim Parsons doesn’t win it, I think Louis C.K. wins it and Louis should win it. He’s been nominated 7 or 8 times and hasn’t won yet for any of his work. Comedically in television, he’s a genius.”

Producer Angie: “I think it will probably be Jim Parsons, who’s won the past couple of years. I would love if Don Cheadle won. I love Don Cheadle. I think he’s so funny.”


Nominated: Lena Dunham as Hannah Horvath in “Girls,” Melissa McCarthy as Molly Flynn in “Mike & Molly,” Zooey Deschanel as Jess Day in “New Girl,” Edie Falco as Jackie Peyton in “Nurse Jackie,” Amy Poehler as Leslie Knope in “Parks and Recreation,” Tina Fey as Liz Lemon in “30 Rock,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer in “Veep”

Carson: “I think Julia Louis-Dreyfus for Veep is going to win this category, yes I do…I don’t think Zoe has a chance, but I would love that. She’s so sweet and she’s so good.”

Producer Angie: “I think kind of Tina Fey, last year on 30 Rock. Last season. I think Tina’s going to take it. I would like Zoe to win though.”


Nominated: Ed O’Neill as Jay Pritchett in “Modern Family,” Jesse Tyler Ferguson as Mitchell Pritchett in “Modern Family,” Ty Burrell as Phil Dunphy in “Modern Family,” Eric Stonestreet as Cameron Tucker in “Modern Family,” Max Greenfield as Schmidt in “New Girl,” Bill Hader as various characters in “Saturday Night Live”

Carson: “I think Eric Stonestreet’s going to take it as Cameron and if he doesn’t win, Ty Burrell’s going to take it.”

Producer Angie: “We both love New Girl so much. I would love, love, love for Max Greenfield to win. He’s not going to.”


Nominated: Mayim Bialik as Amy Farrah Fowler in “The Big Bang Theory,” Kathryn Joosten as Karen McCluskey in “Desperate Housewives,” Julie Bowen as Claire Dunphy in “Modern Family,” Sofia Vergara as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in “Modern Family,” Merritt Wever as Zoey Barkow in “Nurse Jackie,” Kristen Wiig as various characters in “Saturday Night Live”

Carson: “Blossom on Big Bang Theory. She could win. She’s really funny in Big Bang Theory…but you and I both agree Julie Bowen’s probably going to win?”

Producer Angie: “Of course Sofia Vergara’s probably going to win.”


Nominated: “Boardwalk Empire” (HBO), “Breaking Bad” (AMC), “Downton Abbey” (PBS), “Game of Thrones” (HBO), “Homeland” (Showtime), “Mad Men” (AMC)

Carson: “I want to go on record saying Sons of Anarchy should be on this…Breaking Bad will win. Homeland has a good shot at upsetting, but it won’t. Breaking Bad will be your winner.”

Producer Angie: “I think Game of Thrones is probably going to take that.


Nominated: Steve Buscemi as Nucky Thompson in “Boardwalk Empire,” Bryan Cranston as Walter White in “Breaking Bad,” Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan in “Dexter,” Hugh Bonneville as Robert, Earl of Grantham in “Downton Abbey,” Damian Lewis as Nicholas Brody in “Homeland,” Jon Hamm as Don Draper in “Mad Men”

Carson: I think [Bryan Cranston] will absolutely win. He’s too good as Walter White. He’s just too good. If it’s not Bryan Cranston, it’ll be Jon Hamm. Damian Lewis is awesome in Homeland though. If you want to keep an eye on an upset, that could be your long shot.”

Producer Angie: “I think he’s going to win and I would like him to win, Bryan Cranston for Breaking Bad.


Nominated: Glenn Close as Patty Hewes in “Damages,” Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley in “Downton Abbey,” Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick in “The Good Wife,” Kathy Bates as Harriet Korn in “Harry’s Law,” Claire Danes as Carrie Mathison in “Homeland,” Elisabeth Moss as Peggy Olson in “Mad Men”

Carson: “Claire Danes will win this. Mark my words. She’s too good in Homeland and this is sort of a weak category in my personal opinion. If she doesn’t win it, Julianna Margulies will win it for Good Wife, that’s what I think.”

Producer Angie: “I would love if Claire Danes won. I love her. I think it’s either going to be Kathy Bates or Julianna Margulies.”


Nominated: “The Colbert Report” (Comedy Central), “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” (Comedy Central), “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (ABC), “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” (NBC), “Real Time With Bill Maher” (HBO), “Saturday Night Live” (NBC)

Carson: “I think that Jon Stewart’s got this locked. If he doesn’t win it, I think [Stephen] Colbert’s going to win it. I don’t think anybody else has a chance…I don’t think anybody’s more deserving [than Jimmy Kimmel]. After 10 years, he got his first nomination this year. He’s hosting the Emmys. Wouldn’t be better. The stars could be aligned for an upset, but I think Jon Stewart is going to win.”

Producer Angie: “I think Jimmy [Kimmel’s] going to win it. I want him to win it.”


Nominated: “The Amazing Race” (CBS), “Dancing With the Stars” (ABC), “Project Runway” (Lifetime), “So You Think You Can Dance” (Fox), “Top Chef” (Bravo), “The Voice” (NBC)

Carson: “Amazing Race has won this 9 out of the last 10 times…The Amazing Race will win, but I honestly think The Voice has a slight shot at an upset.”

Producer Angie: “I think The Voice is going to win. I’m putting it out there for the world…I think the Amazing Race is going to win, but I would like The Voice to win.”


Nominated: Phil Keoghan, “The Amazing Race,” Ryan Seacrest, “American Idol,” Betty White, “Betty White’s Off Their Rockers,” Tom Bergeron, “Dancing With the Stars,” Cat Deeley, “So You Think You Can Dance”

Carson: “Ryan’s never won in this category. Of all of his incredible accomplishments, he’s never won host. Jeff Probst has won every year…I think Ryan should win. I think he deserves to win, number one. I think he will win, number two. I love Cat Deeley, so either of those two I would be personally thrilled by.”

Producer Angie: “I think it’s going to be Tom Bergeron or Ryan Seacrest.”
