The pundits are weighing in with their picks to win 2011 Emmy Awards on Sunday night, and we’re seeing a lot of consensus across the major categories. But why leave it to the critics only? Even Pee-wee Herman is prognosticating via The Hollywood Reporter. Some sites are relying on reader polls to pick the winners.
