Posted Sunday, June 15, 2008 5:21:37 PM
With every awards show comes the endless parade of "experts" offering their thoughts on who will walk home victorious. Well, add another float to the parade.

As we do every year, we've invited some of's visitors to offer their picks on who will earn Emmy gold. You may know by now that the Emmy nomination process has come under fire in recent years as being "unfair." There's nothing we can do about that, but we can offer true soap fans the chance to predict this year's Emmy recipients.

In addition to the "expert" opinions offered by staffers, we recruited one non-soap watcher to offer some guesses and even allowed visitors to the site to pick the winners in a series of special polls on the site.

Following are this year's panelists. Click on a panelist's name to read their picks as well as a mini-biography about them. For your convenience, we've also provide a link to a chart that displays all of our panelists' picks in one easy-to-read screen.
