    The Producers Guild of American is switching to calendar-year eligibility, leaving the casting guild as the only one of the fourteen industry guilds still sharing the Emmys’ June to May eligibility. PGA is always good because they only nominate five instead of seven, so you can see what is just barely hanging on at the Emmys. And they almost always share the Emmy winners. This year will be fun for a different reason, which is that it will be a bloodbath because in order to switch to the new timeline, everything from June 2015 to December 2016 is eligible. They are taking the opposite approach from Critics’ Choice last year.

    It seems that if BCS, Mr.Robot, and HOC cannot get this nom, then they might be out of the door for the Emmys.

    Hmm, I’d agree with Mr Robot which isn’t a very Emmy-ish show and it’s generally seen as having had a major sophomore slump.

    Right decision. Long overdue.

    They’re probably not gonna be all over the fall shows, though. I’m only expecting Westworld to make a difference.

    No, they are too new and Game of Thrones is too strong.

    It seems that if BCS, Mr.Robot, and HOC cannot get this nom, then they might be out of the door for the Emmys.

    But if two of the nominees are Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey, it will just mean that they are not top-three drama contenders, which is fine, as there are seven slots. Anything that does get in here though has to be locked at the Emmys, except Mr. Robot, which might just be viewed as a new series here, whereas the Emmys will judge its sophomore slump. One thing that this will do is clear up whether The Americans is competitive for the win.

    I tried to lean heavier on older stuff in my predictions. We already saw The Crown snubbed at WGA because they did not have time to watch it so soon. I also remember PGA snubbing Olive Kitteridge, which aired in the fall, close to the end of the long-form eligibility period, then it swept the Emmys. With that in mind, I was unable to find something to replace Modern Family, although it certainly does seem like it is time for it to get the boot. Even Mad Men and Downton Abbey fell out of PGA for their penultimate years with the fewer slots.

    Not that voters will be aware or care, but because the PGA has no hanging-episodes rule, the last two episodes of HBO’s flagship series from the 2015 season are technically being considered here. That means “The Dance of Dragons” and “Mother’s Mercy” from Game of Thrones, “Binding Arbitration” and “Two Days of the Condor” from Silicon Valley and “Testimony” and “Election Night” from Veep—basically the heaviest hitters of that awards year. PGA is pitting content from three Emmy cycles against each other.

    I honestly can see GoT losing at PGA now. It’s a show in its sixth season and is not even close to being done yet. It’s in a point that it won’t be adding new viewership to its fold anytime soon and even its die-hardest fans have probably cooled down on it at this point(and now have other alternatives to go for from a similar genre) And it being a heavily serialized show that is progressing towards to a clashing finale might incline them to wait for its swansong to award it again, if they’ll do.

    Who would be the alternative? IDK. But they certainly don’t lack new options.

    If GoT lost I think it would be to stranger things. I am also convinced that Stranger Things will win the Emmy as well.

    Anything else winning would deprive us of so many months of suspense.

    I might be underestimating ABC in my nomination predictions; they did very well at SAG and were one of the few networks not send screeners or making their content available to voters online. Then again, PGA has always carried a heavy cable bias.
