2017 Emmy Predictions: Gold Derby Predicts the 69th Emmy Awards

Gold Derby is the ultimate source for everything Emmy. We are predicting the winners in every category of the 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards. Be sure to make your own predictions and compete against our Emmy experts, who cover this race year-round for such publications as Variety, Deadline, the Los Angeles Times, as well as the savviest amateurs who ranked in the top 24 last year and thousands of Emmy fans just like you.

Collectively, these Emmy predictions are translated into racetrack odds that are updated on an hourly basis. You can lock in your predictions early and get even better odds, which could help you get the highest score. But if a frontrunner falters, you may want to abandon that contender in favor of a rising star. Users with the best scores are asked to join our Top 24. Do well for a few years in a row and you could be one of our elite all-stars.

We know that the reigning two-time Best Drama Series champ “Game of Thrones” won’t make it three in a row as the episodes airing this summer on HBO were not eligible. Only those shows that aired between June 1, 2016 and May 31, 2017 can contend at the upcoming 69th annual edition of these top TV honors.

However, HBO could still claim the drama series prize as its new hit sci-fi series “Westworld” numbers among the seven nominees. TV academy members embraced a record number of new shows including Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale”, Netflix’s “The Crown” and “Stranger Things” and NBC’s “This Is Us.” The latter could be the first win by broadcast net in this race since Fox won for “24” in 2006. Also in the running are two returning contenders: AMC’s “Better Call Saul” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.”

Over on the comedy side, HBO’s “Veep” is favored to make it three in a row for Best Comedy Series. Its strongest challenger is the FX freshman critical darling “Atlanta,” which reaped multi-hypenate Donald Glover bids for acting, directing and writing. Also in contention are ABC’s five-time champ “Modern Family” and “Black-ish” as well as fellow returning nominees HBO’s “Silicon Valley” and Netflix’s “Master of None” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”
