    We are starting to build our predictions center for the 2017 Emmys (launching in late February). Help us compile lists for the movie/limited series 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.

    Don’t forget Judy Davis for “Feud.” She is the queen of the miniseries categories.

    I’ve only seen the pilot but the History Channels miniseries Six could make a dent. Walton Goggins will surely get his chance to shine.

    This is how I see nominees so far:

    The Night Of:

    Riz Ahmed, John Turturro, Amara Karan

    Feud:

    Jessica Lange, Susan Sarandon, Catherine Zeta-Jones(?), Sarah Paulson

    Fargo:

    Ewan McGregor, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Carrie Coon, Jim Gaffigan (maybe?)

    Little Big Lies (I’m pretty sure this is gonna be categorized as miniseries):

    Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern

    The Wizard of Lies:

    Robert DeNiro, Michelle Pfeiffer

     

    I don’t see AHS Roanoke getting a nomination, mostly because of the episodes after Chapter 5.

    The amount of legitimate contenders gives me a headache. 2018 is probably gonna be even more stacked. They’re gonna have to increase the nominees to 7 in the limited series category.

    From what I’ve heard, Feud will dominate.

    The missing. Season 2 is coming soon. It features one of the same characters. Will it be forced into drama or can it cheat it’s way into Mini Series?

    Nicloe Kidman could get a double nomination this year for Little Big Lies (leading) and Top of the Lake (supporting).
