Today’s cuppa: Yorkshire Gold tea.

Disclaimer: Please note the use of
the word "Fake" above. Hot Cuppa TV in no way and under no
circumstances encourages, supports or rationalizes voting fraud of any kind. Unless
it’s fake voting, like here. Fake voting is fine. And, in case you were
wondering, the presidential election on Tuesday, Nov. 4 — not fake. Don’t try
the fraud. You’ve been warned.

For those of you who rely on Hot
Cuppa TV for all of your entertainment news (and, who are you? For goodness’
sake, have you never heard of Variety?
Have you never heard of the Hollywood Reporter?
Have you never heard of "Red Eye
W/Greg Gutfeld"
? OK, I forgive you on the last one), here’s a link to the
Emmy nominations, announced before sunrise here in Los Angeles.

Let me say up front that I cannot
vote on the Emmy Awards. I can only vote on the Television Critics Awards,
which I did. They’re announced on Saturday. No, they won’t be on TV. The irony
escapes no one.

Just for fun, I’ve decided to reveal
my hypothetical votes on the few Emmy categories upon which I feel like voicing
an opinion. This in no way diminishes my love for other shows and performers
that I love, but just didn’t love as much this past year as the ones that got
my vote.

Feel free to play along at home.
Your fake voting results may vary. My choices in red italics.
