With every awards show comes the endless parade of "experts" offering their thoughts on who will walk home victorious. Well, add another float to the parade.
As we do every year, we've invited some of soapcentral.com's visitors to offer their picks on who will earn Emmy gold. You may know by now that the Emmy nomination process has come under fire in recent years as being "unfair." There's nothing we can do about that, but we can offer true soap fans the chance to predict this year's Emmy recipients.
In addition to the "expert" opinions offered by soapcentral.com staffers, we recruited one non-soap watcher to offer some guesses and even allowed visitors to the soapcentral.com site to pick the winners in a series of special polls on the soapcentral.com site.
Following are this year's panelists. Click on a panelist's name to read their picks as well as a mini-biography about them. For your convenience, we've also provide a link to a chart that displays all of our panelists' picks in one easy-to-read screen.
Back for 2009! Do you think you have what it takes to pick the winners? Head over to our Blogs section and set up your own personal page -- it's free. You can then take your own shot at predicting the winners. When you do, click here to send us an email so that we can check out your picks. If you correctly guess more winners than our top predictor, you will be entered to win $100 gift certificate from Amazon.com. All entries must be made by 5:00pm Eastern on August 28, 2009.
