Kyle's Career Filmstrip: TV Series and Movies

Emmys 2011: Who will ('Mad Men,' Laura Linney) and should win (Kyle Chandler, 'Parks and Rec')

The television academy did a pretty good job at picking its Emmy nominees this year. Will the list of winners be just as satisfying?

We'll find out on Sunday (Sept. 18) when the Emmys air live at 8 p.m. ET/5 PT on FOX. We have some ideas of our own, though, on how the awards will play out -- and, in our ideal world, how they ought to go. Read on for our predictions, and let us know your own picks in the comments.

Outstanding lead actor - drama

Will win: Michael C. Hall for the lovable serial killer on "Dexter." The show is more popular than ever -- and that word "lovable" isn't meant ironically. It's not easy to make someone who kills people -- even those who deserve to die -- sympathetic, but Hall continues to pull it off.

Should win: Kyle Chandler. If anyone ever deserved a lifetime achievement award for a series that was seemingly on the chopping block every year, it's Chandler for his work on "FNL." Coach Taylor's continual struggle to maintain a normal life in the football-crazy town of Dillon, combined with him just looking the part of a coach deserves recognition.-- David Eckstein
