Tomorrow's a big day for TV...

Anthony Anderson and Lauren Graham will announce the 2016 Emmy nominations at 8:30 a.m. PT/11:30 a.m. ET (you can watch right here—E! Online will be broadcasting a lifestream of the noms), and we've got a few predictions for the big names and leading shows which will likely get some well-deserved accolades.

Obviously, we're excited for the whole list of noms, but there are a few categories that don't exist (yet) despite being worthy of recognition. Like...Outstanding Fake Cry in a Reality Series. The Bachelor ladies alone would probably sweep the nods in this category, but we can think of several Real Housewives who could hold their own. Speaking of which, how is Outstanding Dramatic Exit not a category yet?

Best Showmance could be a category spanning all genres, along with Best Kiss, Best Sex Scene and Best Shameless Shirtless Scene. Best Spray Tan could be interesting, too—the least orange glow wins!

It's not all about looks, though: There should be a nod of some sort for Outstanding Dialect. What we hear matters! Sofia Vergara would obviously be a contender (yes, even though her character's accent is similar to her real one) as would Law & Order: SVU star Kelli Giddish, who plays Georgia native Amanda Rollins and has never left us cringing over a fake Southern accent (it probably helps that she's from the South, but still). Billions' Damian Lewis would surely receive an Outstanding Dialect nod—the English actor is one of the few to truly master his American accent (this does not go unnoticed, people). Bloodline's Ben Mendelsohn would get a nod, too—the Australian star is completely convincing as a native Floridian.

And last, but not least, why not recognize Outstanding Animals (in a Comedy or Drama)? Of course, Giggy Vanderpump comes to mind, but Lisa Vanderpump's pup isn't the only fantastic animal on TV. Brigitte, the Piebald French Bulldog who plays Stella on Modern Family, has managed to steal scenes from Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen alike.
