    I’m not sure I quite understand the doubt in Thandie Newton winning. To me she best fits the Tatiana Maslany/Rami Malek precedence that keeps getting thrown around. An incredibly showy role that we know they have seen. I did have Westworld in directing before the Creative Arts but losing technical awards like editing and sound editing to less showy Stranger Things made me switch to that.

    I’m predicting Newton just because that would be Westworld’s biggest win. I don’t see a situation where the show with most nominations doesn’t win anything.

    Believe it, Westworld won only minor awards at Creative Arts, even though it won 5 it almost feels like it got shut out. Visual Effects and Sound Mixing were solid, but it lost so many awards to Stranger Things that I don’t buy it winning anything on the big night anymore. It’s too polarizing. Westworld has always been too polarizing.

    After it’s just won five Emmys?

    Let’s look at things in perspective here – I’m predicting it to get shut out because I have either Stranger Things or Handmaid’s Tale winning those categories (shows which clearly have a lot more passionate support).

    Two of the categories that Westworld won in, it had virtually no competition – special effects and make-up. I’ll give you its wins for Hairstyling and Sound Mixing as being indicators of broad support, but it pales in comparison to the passion we saw for Stranger Things and Handmaid’s tale.

    It lost editing to Stranger Things (which overcame vote-splitting), it lost for its gorgeous Main Title Design (to Stranger Things no less), despite its setting it even lost for Cinematography, it lost for casting, it lost for Ramin Djawadi’s main title theme music (though in all fairness that might have to do with their bizarre rejection of Djawadi), it lost for its more flashy Sound Editing to Stranger Things. It should have been able to win at least some of these categories.

    Excellent analysis! Couldn’t have written it any better myself. Are we supposed to believe that Westworld still has passion after it lost Editing, Casting, and even somehow Main Title Design to the same show, but still managed to beat it for… Interactive Program?

    I pray that someday the music branch finally gets over their bizarre anti-Ramin Djawadi bias.

    I suspect Newton will act as Westworld‘s consolation prize.

    I just realized I am not predicting anything for Westworld either. I was predicting Anthony Hopkins a while ago but I caved in and changed that to SKB. I hope I am wrong in both lead actor and supporting actress (where I am predicting Brown) and both Hopkins and Newton can win.

    I thought Newton was going to win the Golden Globe, then I thought she had a shot at the SAG, but she won neither. I know the Emmys are a different animal, but I’m wondering if Newton’s performance is more of a critics thing. Maeve is a fan favorite character, but is she a little too cold? I’ve been predicting her for the longest time, but the Creative Arts indicated to me that between Stranger Things and Westworld, they prefer the former.

    Millie Bobby Brown kind of reminds me of Uzo Aduba, where a character played by a previously unknown actress becomes instantly iconic and popular, and is rewarded for it. Plus, we’ve seen that voters are more lenient towards younger performers these past two years, so the age thing might not be that big of a factor.

    I had a dream last night that Titus won his category. I’m so tempted to switch to him now lol.

    We have identical predictions aside from comedy and drama supporting actress so I hope that you are (mostly) right!

    I am pretty tempted to switch to MBB but I loved Thandie so much that it would pain me to move her out of the top spot where I have had her since the predictions center opened. Not really buying into the Light thing happening this year.

    I’m also not buying the Light win. Plus, I’m confident that Newton could win. I’m tempted to predict MBB but I’ll stick to Newton. MBB has the kid factor.

    If it can help, I had the same situation last year: I dreamt the win of two actors – don’t remember who they were. I did switch to them (because they were very possible winners in the real world too) and none of them happened lol. Don’t trust your dreams, unless they predict Veep or JLD.

    Oh wow, both were wrong? I’ll stick to Anderson then. I really hope Titus somehow wins this though.

    I decided to classify them as the following (and they are – maybe – my final predictions):

    LOCKS (anyone else who wins will be a huge upset)

    – Oustanding Comedy Series: Veep

    – Outstanding Reality-Competition Program: RuPaul’s Drag Race

    – Outstanding Variety Sketch Series: Saturday Night Live

    – Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “Veep” (she will also win next year)

    – Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series: John Lithgow, “The Crown”

    – Outstanding Directing for a Variety Series: Saturday Night Live

    NEARLY LOCKS

    – Outstanding Drama Series: Stranger Things

    – Outstanding Limited Series: Big Little Lies (Maybe I’ll change to “The Night Of”)

    – Outstanding Variety Talk Series: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (I do really think that people are underestimating Samantha Bee)

    – Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Elisabeth Moss, “The Handmaid’s Tale” (but I think anyone not Robin Wright has a shot here)

    – Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie: Nicole Kidman, “Big Little Lies”

    – Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Donald Glover, “Atlanta”

    – Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series: Alec Baldwin, “Saturday Night Live” (If voters are watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and they might not want to reward Alec Baldwin again, Tituss Burgess may have a shot. Although, the Emmys doesn’t care about repeat winners like the Oscars)

    – Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series: Atlanta, for the episode “B.A.N.” (I think it would win even if there was no voting splitting in “Veep” and “Silicon Valley”)

    – Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series or Television Movie: Big Little Lies

    – Outstanding Writing in a Variety Series: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

    IT’S VERY POSSIBLE TO HAPPEN, DUE TO VOTE SPLITTING

    – Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Matthew Rhys, “The Americans” (Sterling K. Brown would be a lock for me if Milo Ventimiglia wasn’t nominated. But I think he has a shot, like Bob Odenkirk – even when the voters clearly don’t watch “Better Call Saul”. This is the category that may present the biggest upset of the night, including Kevin Spacey and Liev Schreiber)

    – Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series: Anna Chlumsky, “Veep” (she’s the only nominee that has no chance of vote splitting. I would say that Kate McKinnon – last year winner – and Judith Light – overdue for a Primetime Emmy – have a shot here)

    I’M REALLY NOT CONFIDENT ABOUT THESE PREDICTIONS, BUT I THINK THEY CAN UPSET THE HEAVY FAVORITES

    – Outstanding Television Movie: Sherlock: The Lying Detective

    – Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Television Movie: Robert De Niro, “The Wizard of Lies” (They like to reward veterans over fresh faces, see Richard Jenkins over David Oyelowo, James Cromwell over Zachary Quinto and Jessica Lange over Drew Barrymore)

    – Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie: Regina King, “American Crime” (I will never underestimate her again)

    – Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series: Stranger Things, “The Vanishing of Will Byers”

    – Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series: The Crown, “Assassins”

    – Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series: Silicon Valley, for the episode “Success Failure” (they love the show, and I think it is the only strong competition for Master of None’s “Thanksgiving”)

    – Outstanding Writing in a Limited Series or Television Movie: Black Mirror, for the episode “San Junipero”

    RACE IS STILL UNCLEAR

    – Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series: Thandie Newton, “Westworld” (honestly? anyone can happen here. “Stranger Things” may be the favorite for Drama Series, and despite the new vote system, it’s important to remember that “Mad Men” only went to win an acting award in its final season, and “Game of Thrones” went home empty-handed in acting awards last year – even when Max von Sydow was the only nomination in Guest Actor. If Newton or Ann Dowd wins here, I’ll be pretty happy)

    – Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Television Movie: Alexander Skarsgard, “Big Little Lies” (I think I will change this prediction to David Thewlis – maybe they finally decide to give an acting award to “Fargo”)
