These official odds are derived from the predictions of film Experts, Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the top scores predicting last year’s SAG Awards for TV, the All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ SAG winners, and thousands of total Users who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors.

We’re predicting all nine categories and betting on four programs to tie with two wins apiece. “Game of Thrones” is favored to take Best TV Drama Ensemble for the very first time, defeating the defending champ “Downton Abbey,” which went off the air last year and is hoping for one last hurrah. “Thrones” is also projected to take Best TV Stunt Ensemble, which it has won for the last five years in a row, never losing.

We think “The Crown” will fall short of “Game of Thrones” for Best Drama Ensemble, but we’re betting it will win both individual acting prizes: Best Drama Actor for John Lithgow as Prime Minister Winston Churchill and Best Drama Actress for Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II.

Veep” is also tipped to win two awards. We think it will claim Best TV Comedy Ensemble for the first time and Best TV Comedy Actress (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) for the second time. In those categories it faces “Orange is the New Black” and its scene-stealing star Uzo Aduba, who have won both races for the last two years and remain formidable opponents.

There is no Ensemble award for longform programs, but FX’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson” is forecast to win twice anyway: Best Movie/Mini Actor (Courtney B. Vance) and Best Movie/Mini Actress (Sarah Paulson), which would continue the awards romp for the true crime drama, which also won nine Emmys, two Golden Globes, four Critics’ Choice Awards and three Television Critics Association Awards.

Find out who else we’re betting on below (projected winners are highlighted in gold). And there’s still time to make or edit your own predictions before the winners are announced on January 29.
