“Breaking Bad” will win three of its four nominations: Best Drama Series, which it also won last year, and first-time victories for supporting actors Aaron Paul and Anna Gunn. Lead actor Bryan Cranston, who has won Best Drama Actor for the last two years, is expected to lose out this time to Matthew McConaughey (“True Detective“).
In addition to “True Detective,” two other shows are forecast to win one category apiece: “House of Cards” (Drama Actress for Robin Wright) and “Masters of Sex” (Drama Guest Performer for Allison Janney).
Best Comedy Series will go to first-year Netflix series “Orange is the New Black,” which will also win Comedy Guest Performer for Uzo Aduba. But voters will spread the wealth in the comedy field, with four shows predicted to pick up one award each.
Lead acting honors will go to Louis C.K. (“Louie“) and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (“Veep“), both of whom won last year. The comedy supporting categories will go to actors in first-year series: Andre Braugher (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine“) and Allison Janney (“Mom“), who will add this trophy to the one she’s expected to win for “Masters of Sex.”
Science series “Cosmos” will pick up a pair of awards: Best Reality Series and Best Reality Host (Neil deGrasse Tyson), while “The Voice” gets best odds to win Best Reality Competition Series for the third year in a row.
Also expected to claim a third consecutive prize is FX’s “Archer” for Best Animated Series.
