This is the first of our "2010 Emmys, Who'll Be Nominated? Who Should Be?" posts, to see all our posts on the 2010 Emmys click here.

Because successful TV shows last many years (unlike movies, which have a single shot at an Oscar), and typically draw the most critical attention, the Emmy Awards tend to be creatures of inertia, nominations and the awards themselves tend to be quite similar from year to year.

I'm not going to pretend to try and tell you who'll be nominated based on some sort of critical evaluation, I'll let you know who was nominated and who won in the last two years, plus a few other names the critical community is chattering about and let you comment on who you think will be nominated, and who should be nominated.

Emmy Nominations will be announced on July 8.
