    Is there a win that you are predicting at Sunday’s ceremony that you are actually dreading to see happen?

    I for one am dreading seeing Game of Thrones win for a pretty uneven season, and beat the amazing fourth season of The Americans and Mr. Robot’s stellar first season.

    Maggie Smith winning Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Really hoping for a Zimmer or Tierny upset

    Oh and….

    Cuba Gooding Jr to be really obnoxious when People vs OJ wins Best Limited Series.

    A mediocre performance winning Drama Supporting Actor (all the nominees are)

    The Night Manager winning writing in a Limited Series

    Inside Amy Schumer winning Best Variety Sketch Series for a very mediocre season

    I hate to say it, because she IS very funny and talented but…Julia Louis-Dreyfus. It’s that same feeling I think folks had when the likes of Candice Bergen and Helen Hunt already had a boatload of Emmys under their belts and were still favored to triumph again.

    Sans JLD, it’s gross that there might be a repeat in all comedy categories.

    Peter Dinklage. This might be a year however where voters under this system go with a non-Game of Thrones supporting actor due to the entry of Kit Harrington into his category because of vote splitting.

    Nothing against her personally but kind of Allison Janney…

    I’m still upset that Louis-Dreyfus always won over Amy Poehler. She deserved at least an Emmy or two for Parks & Recreation.

    1. Bryan Cranston gave the best performance in television history as Walt White on Breaking Bad. I have no problem saying that. But unlike other great leading actors of his generation like Matthew Fox or Hugh Laurie to name a couple of my favourites, Cranston got exactly what he deserved. He has six Emmys for Breaking Bad. So there is no need to recognize his greatness in excess. His Oscar nomination was overkill and his Emmy will be even more.

    2. Peter Dinklage. Please Emmys, have some decency.

    3. All the Way was not great. So if actual merit is out of the equation, I would like to see it go to something that had quality at some point: Sherlock. I also do not want HBO to be encouraged to make more All the Ways in the future. They are better than that.

    4. I am still predicting Robin Wright, but the Creative Arts definitely leaned Viola Davis. Smart money is on her and will it be disappointing for the second season of How to Get Away with Murder to win the third-last award of the night.

    5. This was the first time that I watched a complete season of Veep and I finally get the appeal of Tony Hale. Gary is one of the most reliable parts of the show. But three Emmys? Good god. This is not really even a role that should be in contention for a nomination.

    6. Ugh, Transparent is not a comedy. But we all like Jeffrey Tambor, right? And he might be all that is holding off William H. Macy, so at least if Tambor wins, we can shine a light on social issues for a minute.

    7. Mom is so uneven and the voters have clearly not seen Allison Janney in it.

    8. Maggie Smith is of course not deserving, but she has won so much that I have come to terms with it and this win will be less the fault of the Emmys’ awful tastes than the stupid new voting system. And none of the actual nominees should have been nominated in the first place, so it is hard to get too riled up about one of them defeating the others.

    9. Game of Thrones is such a mess, so I cannot support a writing win for David Benioff and Dan Weiss, let alone a second consecutive, but the competition is pretty weak. I mean, they do actually have the best episode of the nominees.

    10. The Night Manager winning a writing award for David Farr is ridiculous, but again, the Emmys have it coming with the new vote-splitting format. This is on them.
