The Emmy Awards Drinking Game

...In an effort to make the Emmys more exciting I've devised a simple two-person or two-team drinking game to be played along with the three-hour telecast. At least come Monday morning, you'll have something to show for those hours -- namely a hangover. Don't drink? Play it for quarters instead. Here's how it works: Divide into two teams, the Noobs and the Old-timers. Noobs will get points when first-time winners and nominees triumph, and the Old-timers win when the Tony Shalhoubs and Alec Baldwins do. Proceed as follows: ...

Lead Actor in a Drama Series:
Bryan Cranston, Hugh Laurie or Michael C. Hall wins -- Noobs drink or pay.
Jon Hamm, Kyle Chandler or Matthew Fox wins -- Old-timers drink or pay.
Bonus: If Kyle Chandler wins, everyone drinks out of sheer happiness.

Lead Actress in a Drama Series:
Kyra Sedgwick, Mariska Hargitay, Julianna Margulies or Glenn Close wins -- Noobs drink or pay.
Connie Britton or January Jones wins -- Old-timers drink or pay.
If either Connie or January wins, Old-timers drink or pay double for stacked category.

Shall we play Sunday night? Choose your poison ... wine, beer, or Scotch! ;)
