Only the accountants at Ernst & Young – the official vote-counters for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences – know who will take home an Emmy during Sunday's ceremony.
Until then it's anyone's guess. But we can tell you which Emmy nominees are getting the most buzz among 170.89 million Facebook users in the U.S.
Based on the number of "Likes" and the number of mentions on the social networking site, it seems Sofia Vergara is a fan favorite. The Modern Family star leads over Kristen Wiig, Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Merritt Wever and Kathryn Joosten for the supporting comedy actress category.

Edie Falco brought in the big guns for a charity event Thursday in New York City – her own!
The Nurse Jackie star met a fat cat – 33-lb. Sponge Bob – at SoHo-based shelter Animal Haven's 2nd Annual Performance for the Animals, and easily lifted up the outsize cat.
"I have an 85-lb. dog at home!" she explained to handlers at the event. Falco kept the 9-year-old cat in her arms for several minutes while she did interviews with press, and later remarked that he was "sweet."

If Edie Falco's son and daughter become child actors, they won't be cast in the same movies. In fact, they'll work different genres.
That's because Anderson, 5, looks like Fabio, the famed romance-novel cover boy, while daughter Macy, 2, looks like a sweet version of Chucky, the mischievous baby doll, Falco told PEOPLE at a Drama League gala honoring Angela Lansbury in New York on Monday.
"He's just a spectacularly beautiful little blond boy," the Emmy-winning Sopranos and Nurse Jackie actress, 46, said of Anderson, whom she adopted in 2005. "And I'm not just saying that because I'm his mom."

Now that Sandra Bullock is done with her real estate ordeal (she was awarded $7 million last month after a dispute with a contractor over her Austin house), she can get back to the business of being a star and collecting accolades. Her most recent: the University of Virginia's Virginia Film Award, for her contributions to film and to the state. The Miss Congeniality star was modest in her acceptance. "I'm trying to add up what it was," Bullock said of her contributions at the ceremony in Charlottesville, Va. "If there was something that I did, it makes me really happy and really proud. I know it makes my family really happy and proud. My sister went to UVA. That was the exciting part. I got to come back to the place that I'd go visit her at – where the smart one in the family went to school." As for whether she's a real southerner, Bullock said: "I don't know what I am, to be honest. I was born in D.C., and raised between Arlington, Va., and Germany. My mother (opera singer Helga Bullock) was German. So if the opera seasons were in Vienna or wherever in Germany, that's where I was. Then back to Virginia. I'm like the rest of America, you know, a little bit of this, a little bit of that."

Melissa EtheridgeWith a history of breast cancer in her family, Melissa Etheridge has always been vigilant about regular self-exams and mammograms. "The rule is, 10 years before you hit the age your mother was at the time of her diagnosis, you should start getting a baseline mammogram," says her pal Rosie O'Donnell. "Melissa was very up on that." Even so, Etheridge, 43, was stunned when she learned the first week in October that she had breast cancer. "Wow," she wrote on her Web site, "I didn't see this coming."
