    Now that The (zzz)Oscars are over – tho it did try to keep the spotlight with that crazy ending – we can officially focus on the greatest of all awards: The Emmys.

    So this year, who are you pulling for the hardest? Old or new? And what show do you think can break in big time, or at all? Is there anyone that can Tatiana (get a nom after all seemed lost) their way in and the pull a Tatiana (win)?

    I’m pulling hard for two new shows this season (which will each be on my Emmy ballot): “Stranger Things” and “This Is Us”.

    Performance-wise I’m gunning hard for Katilin Olson (“The Mick”) and Mandy Moore (“This Is Us”), even tho that category switch is very likely going to kill her chance at a nom.

    And as for who can Tatiana in there, I’m still holding all the hope I can for “Jane the Virgin” in any capacity.

    What say you? We can’t watch everything – anyone we Gold Derby editors/writers should keep on our Hangout/EmmyMVP radar?

    I’m still confused as to whether Game of Thrones will be eligible or not, I hear it will not be due to its late release this year, but I personally doubt HBO would want to get no nominations for its biggest show ever, and I’m sure the Emmys don’t want to deal with backlash from misinformed fans of Thrones who don’t understand eligibility.

    GOT will start airing too late for this Emmy season. That means a lot of slots will be open in the drama races this summer. The predictions center is now open and has many of the contenders in there.

    I can’t wait for the Predix Centre to open up more categories like guest actor/actress!! The Emmys are surprisingly a lot more fun than the Oscars in terms of predictions.

    Of fairly realistic options: I am really rooting for ‘The Crown’. It was incredibly crafted from top to bottom as well as engrossing so I’d love to see that maintain its frontrunner status all the way to some wins.
    I’d also love somehow for AHS (I know) to get more recognition for Roanoke than it did for Hotel, perhaps with Bates, Paulson and a directing nod as well as series if a few other things end up as flops.
    Also Minnie Driver is great in Speechless!

    Less realistically: It’s time for Mom to break through! Anna Faris is brilliant on this show (as is Allison Janney but she’s had her due) as is the rest of the cast, namely Jamie Presley, who I’d happily see win an Emmy for her performance.
    In the miniseries categories, I’m rooting for The Hollow Crown, which featured the best acting ensemble for years. Sophie Okonedo in particular would be so worthy of a nod but I’m doubtful the Emmys even notice the show sadly.
    Elsewhere, performances-wise by some miracle Michelle Dockery (I’m starting to look like a stan of her I can tell but she just keeps doing good work) getting in for Good Behavior would be a dream, particularly after her snub last year.

    Jeffrey Wright’s career-best work as Bernard Lowe on Westworld. Spectacularly done! 🙂

    I’m so looking forward to watching Fargo sweep the miniseries categories this upcoming awards season 🙂

    Some miracle happens and Orange is the New Black gets major nods for its stellar fourth season.

    I’m rooting for The Americans to get nods for Lead Actor and Actress, series, supporting actress (Alison Wright was ROBBED last year. Let’s see if with Paige becoming more integral part of the story, Holly Taylor can get a not. I don’t think she will, but…) directing and writing.

    Wishful thinking: Crazy Ex-girlfriend get Lead and Supporting actress for Rachel Bloom and Donna-Lynne Champlin, series, music and choreography.

    I still haven’t watched The Mick, but Kaitlin Olsen should have at least 3 Emmys by now, so I can totally get behind this nomination.

    Homeland and Claire Danes.

    For me, it’s all about Jane Fonda finally garnering a nomination.

    Agreed. And I’m still pissed she lost that Oscar back in ’05.

    I also agree with all the OITNB shout-outs. This past season was easily its best and it deserves to be back in the Drama Series race, as well as Uzo and Lori Petty in supporting. Samira Wiley was also excellent, but she’s going to get pushed hard by Hulu for ‘Handmaiden’ so I’m guessing she may not even get submitted for ‘Orange’.

    Hoping for…

    Jane the Virgin — the show isn’t as good this year, but Gina and Jaime deserve nominations. As well as Rachel Bloom from CEG.

    The Americans — I want Keri Russell to finally win.

    Stranger Things — I want this to win Best Drama and for Millie to get a nomination and possibly win in Supporting.

    This Is Us — I want the show, Mandy, Milo, and Sterling to get nominated, with a win for Sterling.

    The Path — Michelle Monaghan deserves to be recognized. I love her.

    Gina Rodriguez. Please.
    This Is Us everywhere
    Jeffrey Wright & Queen Thandie Newton.
    Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji & Keith Stanfield.
    Production Design/Cinematography for Star’s “Pilot”.
    Sense8 anywhere. That air date is perfect.
