    We are starting to build our predictions center for the 2017 Emmys (launching in late February). Help us compile lists for the drama categories of all the eligible/worthy contenders. Studios and networks will not be able to confirm genre and acting placements (lead/supporting) until the spring, but we need to take our best educated guesses in the short term.

    Do you think A Series of Unfortunate Events fits in here or in the Limited Series category?

    Most likely comedy, Netflix has too many eggs in Drama and it will have a season 2.

    Also, Please include The Path for drama series, Aaron Paul, Hugh Dancy, Emma Greenwell, and Michelle Monahan. Does anybody think it has a chance to break into the Emmys this year, maybe an acting or writing nomination?

    Definitely not, although The Path definitely deserves a tonne of nominations.
