    Saw some of the experts & editor predictions and I think they are greatly overestimating Rachel Bloom. Her show barely averages 500k viewers and the show is on The CW. Yeah she’s off a Golden Globe win, but how did that pan out for Golden Globe darling “The Affair” last year?

    I’m more comfortable predicting Gina Rodriguez who has ongoing buzz.

    Who else do you think ‘experts’ are overestimating?

    Can’t say it’s being over-estimated, but I’m 3 episodes into Mr. Robot and I’m not sure how this is an emmy-friendly show. I’m enjoying it and looking forward to finishing it, but all the action and “tech talk” makes me go , especially since people are predicting the pilot to get a writing nom (since that’s the Emmy’s default) and I just don’t see it.

    Rachel Bloom for sure. Same exact boat as Gina Rodriguez last year: CW critically-acclaimed show/performance, Golden Globe winner, likely to be snubbed at Emmys

    I also wonder about Lily Tomlin and if we will get an all new lineup except for Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Grace and Frankie is not the kind of show that is going to build in nominations because the Emmys do not actually like it. If the Emmys actually cared about, they would have nominated Jane Fonda or Sam Waterston or Martin Sheen or put it in casting (or hell, even series since there are seven slots now and Netflix only had like two comedies last year). This was just a name-check nomination and sometimes those endure and sometimes they result in one-off nominations. Is Tomlin a Don Cheadle or a Betty White?

    Mr. Robot. I honestly could see it getting mostly shut out.

    Mr. Robot. See “The Affair”, B99 and every other biggie GG winner.

    I’ll add another: Horace And Pete. And there’s nothing more overated than the episode 3. That’s a Play, that’s theater on video, it’s the format of Cheers and the sense of humor of The Office, that mean no funny at all and considering the success of The Office H&P probably should be in the comedy race.

    Yeah, I’ve been contemplating taking Mr. Robot out of my predictions save for Malek.

    I’m more comfortable predicting Gina Rodriguez who has ongoing buzz.

    What buzz are you seeing/hearing for Rodriguez? I see much, much more for Bloom; also, her visibility during (and in the lead up to) voting was high.

    And how do the negatives for Bloom (Globe, critical acclaim, CW, low ratings) not apply to Rodriguez?

    As for the actual question: (there are a lot of individual choices I question, but here are some trends I noticed with the experts)

    I think it’ll be an either/or with Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti. I can’t see Billions getting both into lead.

    I have a hard time buying into The Americans getting non-guest acting nods, so the Matthew Rhys love feels more like wishful thinking.

    Caitriona Balfe? Really?

    Constance Wu

    Louie Anderson (apart from Louis CK, who basically plays himself, nobody from an FX comedy has been nominated in a main acting category and I don’t see that changing with something as niche as Baskets)
