Will the Emmys get Mad, as in Men – or will they Rock, as in 30? Or will they fall for a brand new Game of Thrones?

All will be revealed in two months – Glee star Jane Lynch, a supporting actress in a comedy series nominee, will host the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards from Los Angeles's Nokia Theatre live on Fox Sept. 18 – but for now, the show to beat is AMC's '60s drama about advertising, Mad Men, which led the nominations, with 19. Game of Thrones received 13.
