When the 2008 Emmys are handed out this coming Sunday at the NOKIA Theatre in Los Angeles, some of the great minds and talents in the film industry will dress up for a black-tie affair that awards 29 categories in the primetime television world.

FilmingLocations.com will be watching along with the rest of the nation, and while we connect property owners with the film industry for filming movies and television shows, we throw out our predictions for Sunday’s winners at the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards.

For Outsanding Actor in a comedy, Steve Carell will bring home the hardware for his role as Michael Scott in The Office. Filmed in California, as well as locations in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, The Office has blossomed into one of America’s favorite primetime comedy’s – and a lot of that is attributed to the fact that Carell makes viewers about as uncomfortable in their living rooms as he does the employees at the office in Scranton.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus looks younger than she did 10 years ago on Seinfeld, just one of the reasons why she gets my vote for Outstanding Actress in a comedy for The New Adventures of Old Christine. Louis-Dreyfus portrays a single mom trying to balance parents, new love and business. She will edge 30 Rock’s Tina Fey for the Emmy.

Speaking of 30 Rock, look for NBC’s laugh-filled show to win Outstanding Comedy. Filmed in New York, 30 Rock airs on Thursdays and was a hit in its first year, winning multiple Emmys last season. I’ll parlay this pick with 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin, who will win the Emmy for Outstanding Actor in a comedy.

My Cinderella pick for the 60th Primetime Emmys is Lost for Outstanding Drama. A hit since its first season, much of Lost is filmed on location in Hawaii – which is now a hotbed for filming as a direct result of its spectacular landscapes and aggressive tax incentives.

Sit back and grab some popcorn on Sunday night and enjoy one of the most extravagant events in the entertainment industry, and look for FilmingLocations.com’s predictions to come true.
