Tonight's "65th Emmy Awards" have already made history, before the first celebrity will arrive on the red carpet.
That's because Emmy voters for the first time looked at online programming when making their selections. The subscription service Netflix picked up 14 Emmy nominations, including one of the coveted Outstanding Drama Series nods for "House of Cards."
With the changes in how we watch television, this year's award had the largest field of potential nominees in Emmy history. With so many more options, an even bigger field of programs and individuals will be overlooked.
Here's a look at some of the top picks for this year's prime-time Emmys, including my predictions:
Best comedy series
Nominees: "30 Rock," "Girls," "Louie," "Modern Family," "The Big Bang Theory," "Veep."
Who will win: "Modern Family."
What should win: "The Big Bang Theory."
What should have been left off: Nominating "30 Rock" feels like a bad habit.
What got snubbed: "Arrested Development" was better than at least three of the nominees.
Lead actor, comedy
Nominees: Alec Baldwin, "30 Rock"; Jason Bateman, "Arrested Development"; Matt LeBlanc, "Episodes"; Don Cheadle, "House of Lies"; Louis C.K, "Louie"; Jim Parsons, "Big Bang Theory."
Who will win: Alec Baldwin.
Who should win: Jim Parsons.
Who should have been left off: Matt LeBlanc got a nomination for playing himself.
Who got snubbed: Anyone from "Modern Family" is better than three of the nominees.
Lead actress, comedy
Nominees: Tina Fey, "30 Rock"; Laura Dern, "Enlightened"; Lena Dunham, "Girls"; Edie Falco, "Nurse Jackie": Amy Poehler, "Parks and Recreation"; Julia Louis-Dreyfus, "Veep."
Who will win: Amy Poehler.
Who should win: Edie Falco
Who should have been left off: Julia Louis-Dreyfus wouldn't get my vote.
Who got snubbed: "New Girl" only works because of Zooey Deschanel.
Best drama series
Nominees: "Breaking Bad," "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland," "House of Cards," "Mad Men."
Who will win: "Breaking Bad."
What should win: "House of Cards."
What should have been left off: "Mad Men" is good, but it is beginning to lose creative steam.
What got snubbed: AMC's "Hell on Wheels" is one of the most overlooked series on TV. And "The Americans" and "The Walking Dead" were equally impressive.
Lead actor, drama
Nominees: Bryan Cranston, "Breaking Bad"; Hugh Bonneville, "Downton Abbey"; Damian Lewis, "Homeland"; Kevin Spacey, "House of Cards"; Jon Hamm, "Mad Men"; Jeff Daniels, "The Newsroom."
Who will win: Bryan Cranston.
Who should win: Cranston, but Spacey is equally deserving.
Who should have been left out: Hugh Bonneville isn't even the strongest actor on the show.
Who got snubbed: Andrew Lincoln is amazing on "The Walking Dead"; but science-fiction or fantasy have never received any Emmy love.
Lead actress, drama
Nominees: Vera Farmiga, "Bates Motel"; Michelle Dockery, "Downton Abbey"; Claire Danes, "Homeland"; Robin Wright, "House of Cards"; Elisabeth Moss, "Mad Men"; Connie Britton, "Nashville"; Kerry Washington, "Scandal."
Who will win: Claire Danes.
Who should win: Robin Wright.
Who should have been left out: The Connie Britton nomination is the result of leftover feelings from "Friday Night Lights."
Who got snubbed: There was no actress better than Keri Russell in "The Americans."
"65th Emmy Awards": 5 p.m. tonight on KGPE (Channel 47.1).
