65TH EMMY AWARDS65TH EMMY AWARDS

WHEN: 8 p.m. Sunday

TV: CBS.

HOST: Neil Patrick Harris.

MOORE

Should win: Jim Carter, "Downton Abbey." Unparalleled charm, understatement, nuance and heart.

Will win: Aaron Paul, "Breaking Bad." Yet another twist on his ever-evolving portrayal.

SUPPORTING ACTRESS, DRAMA SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: Christina Hendricks, "Mad Men." When the going got tougher so did her character, and Hendricks soared.

Will win: Anna Gunn, "Breaking Bad." It's the embattled Mrs. White's turn to shine.

MOORE

Should win: Christina Hendricks, "Mad Men." Joan Harris gained extra oomph this season, and so did Hendricks playing her.

Will win: Christina Hendricks, "Mad Men." Take-charge Joan will help Hendricks take this trophy.

ACTOR, COMEDY SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: Don Cheadle, "House of Lies." There was a reason for his upset Golden Globe victory over Alec Baldwin and other past winners.

Will win: Louis C.K. The sad clown made irresistible.

MOORE

Should win: Matt LeBlanc, "Episodes." He plays himself, and then some, and does it winningly.

Will win: Jim Parsons, "The Big Bang Theory." Three bids and two statues the past five seasons, but it's been since 2011 since he last won. Too long?

ACTRESS, COMEDY

SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: Laura Dern, "Enlightened." If you're looking for layered humanity in any character, she's your woman.

Will win: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "Veep." She wears power and the lunacy of ambition well. Elaine who?

MOORE

Should win: Laura Dern, "Enlightened." Few viewers watched the show and it's been axed, but her performance was perfection.

Will win: Amy Poehler, "Parks and Recreation." She's forged a character that's the bullet train of the little engine that could.

SUPPORTING ACTOR, COMEDY SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: Ed O'Neill, "Modern Family." He's the paterfamilias of modern TV dads. Show some respect.

Will win: Ed O'Neill, "Modern Family." Respect will be paid.

MOORE

Should win: Bill Hader, "Saturday Night Live." A fine, final season on "SNL" deserves to be rewarded.

Will win: Ed O'Neill, "Modern Family." It's his turn in the "Modern Family" rotation.

SUPPORTING ACTRESS, COMEDY SERIES:

ELBER

Should win: Jane Krakowski, "30 Rock." She never let down her side as the role model for self-involved TV stars, and Emmy shouldn't let her down.

Will win: Julie Bowen, "Modern Family." A two-time consecutive winner for her beleaguered mom. Voters will be charmed again.

MOORE

Should win: Jane Krakowski, "30 Rock." A sexy, multi-talented comedic treasure so far overlooked, her fourth nomination as Jenna ought to be the charm.

Will win: Sofia Vergara, "Modern Family." Her fourth nomination as Gloria will be the charm.
