    Does anyone out there agree with me, or am I off in my own little world with this new Emmy prediction that Bobby Cannavale will win the Emmy for “Vinyl”? Hmm…

    Nope. I have him currently in first and plan on keeping him there. He is by no means a lock but it is a pretty open race this year with Hamm and Cranston gone and voters clearly love him.

    Edit: Just read your post and mostly agree except I don’t really think episodes matter as much. It doesn’t hurt but it’s by no means a path to victory.

    4. Yes, episodes matter: Many of last
    year’s acting winners arguably had the best episode submissions in their
    categories, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Tony Hale (“Veep”), Uzo
    Aduba (“Orange is the New Black”) and Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”). Sure, there
    will always be exceptions to the rule — we’re looking at you, Margo
    Martindale (“The Americans”) — but episodes do still matter. And
    Cannavale has a doozy. In the two-hour pilot of “Vinyl,” his character
    Richie Finestra,
    a 1970s record executive, has a midlife crisis that includes drinking,
    drugs, murder, music and an extremely impactful final shot. It’ll be
    tough to beat.

    Can we finally settle that episode submissions do
    not matter in the new system?  The Emmys last year yielded:

    • Several winners that won because voters did not watch the episodes
    • Some winners that would have won whether voters watched the episodes or not
    • Zero winners that could not have won if voters did not watch the episodes

    That is a really convenient coincidence that voters supposedly
    watched the episodes only in the categories that they did not need to. 
    The winners who thrived in the popular vote were not even borderline
    cases where they would have come second under the old system and the
    popular vote was just enough to push them over.  They were strong
    indicators that episodes do not even matter a little bit.  (Also, Jon
    Hamm, really?)

    Are you forgetting about Kevin Spacey? He has yet to win for House of Cards (he SHOULD have won last year). Unless Emmy darling Cannavale’s performance changes radically, not this year. (*worst portrayal of cocaine addict EVER)!

    Yep, nominees are already asked to send their best episodes to voters which are supposed to represent their best work over the season.
    Of course some of them were amazing, most of them were good, and some of them were blah. But you can’t claim tapes did matter and they were the ones that called the shots after you saw good and blah ones triumphing over ”amazing” ones all night.
    I see that you didn’t mention her but, I think Allison Janney was the only one who would have won under either system.

    As for the question; Kevin Spacey is as big lock as one can get if they don’t change the voting system.

    If last year’s ceremony taught us anything is that episode submissions do not matter anymore. 99% of the winners were chosen solely on the buzz or their popularity among the voters. If you’re Alison Janney or JLD or Viola Davis or Peter Dinklage or Uzo Aduba or etc. etc you can send absolutely anything and you’re still gonna win.

    I am tired of saying this around here, but I’ll say one last time, Spacey would’ve won if he had submited the library episode in season 1, I guess it was chapter 8. But he didn’t, so he is never winning again unless he gets another episode like this where he gets to really act and not be hammy and laughable, cartoonish like he is in almost every episode of his show.

    Shades of Blue is not the greatest drama on television.

    That stated, Ray Liotta is riveting as a closeted, corrupt police officer. And he once was a movie star.

    I think Liotta has a good shot at winning the Emmy.

    ^^LOL @ the above post.

    Anyways, I agree with you Marcus. Bobby Cannavale is killing it on Vinyl right now and he’s definitely a contender to win if nominated (and the nomination is quite likely). I’m really enjoying his performance. He commands every scene he’s in and he’s cried, laughed, been high on coke, drunk, been an accomplice to a murder, and survived the destruction of a famed concert venue…and that was just in the first 2 episodes.

    I haven’t started the new season of House of Cards yet, so Kevin Spacey is still TBD to me, but the Emmys love him as well. So who knows. This is definitely one of the more exciting Emmy races to predict in 2016!

    Bobby Cannavale gives a very Emmy thirsty performance but nonetheless good. Hope the show doesn’t get shit though. If it does, shame on the Emmys. Vinyl can get cancelled and die for all I care.

    LOL. You and me appear to be exactly the same on Vinyl, TWNickPeek. I hope Scorsese gets snubbed so The Knick, Mr. Robot, and even Homeland (specifically “Our Man In Damascus”) can get in, that have more spectacular and dynamic Directing.

    I’d like at least one reason why this nonsense couldn’t have been posted in the “Vinyl” thread.

    I’m reasonably confident Spacey will prevail here, considering his SAG victory, the absence of Hamm/Cranston and lack of super-strong new competition. Malek could perhaps prevail, but I suspect “Mr. Robot” is something more Globe-friendly than Emmy-friendly. I’m not convinced Cannavale will even be nominated, honestly. I can picture a Spacey-Malek-Odenkirk-Schreiber-Owen-Moura line-up happening.

    You bring up SAG as an evidence. But Jon Hamm has never won a SAG, either. Didn’t stop him from winning an Emmy with a popularity vote.

    Wagner Moura won’t get nominated for Narcos.

    How come? It is wide open field this year. He should’ve been nominated for an oscar for “Elite Squad”, why won’t he be nominated for an emmy ?
