PGA Awards predictions: Emmy winners will sweep including ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Veep,’ ‘The Voice’

Looking for a handy cheat sheet before entering your predictions for Saturday’s PGA Awards for TV? We’re predicting six TV categories across the drama, comedy, variety and reality genres. And our odds favor wins for the reigning Emmy champs in each of these races.

Last year, “Game of Thrones” won Best Drama Series at these guild awards before going on to finally prevail at the Emmys. “Veep,” the reigning-two time Emmy champ for Best Comedy Series, has yet to win over the guild. This deft political satire lost to “Modern Family” (2013), “Orange is the New Black” (2014) and “Transparent” (2015). Both the variety series “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” and the reality series “The Voice” won their respective races at the PGA Awards last year. (The miniseries “The People v. O.J. Simpson” and the documentary series “Making a Murderer” are new this year.)

Below, our racetrack odds with the predicted winners are indicated in gold. These official odds are derived from the predictions of television Experts, Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users and hundreds of overall Users who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors.
