    It’s not bad, but it’s generic. Almost all of them are safe bets and frontrunners. It’s not your fault, I really hope that we can be surprised this year at the emmy’s.

    REALLY good overall, I’m personally predicting Viola to repeat for Drama Actress, but that category is such a toss-up and I’ve predicted Robin Wright the PAST 2 YEARS and I’m tired of thinking she can pull off a win. Honestly, House of Cards in general has seemed more and more lately like the Emmy Drama equivalent of Modern Family, in that I don’t think that many TV Academy voters watch the show anymore, they just mark off so many of the cast and series as “filler” nominees. Lazy rubber-stamping, did even Mahershala Ali himself think he was Emmy-worthy this season?! I honestly doubt it.

    Oh, and I don’t think Mr. Robot will win writing, I even think Rami Malek could lose to Spacey! The alleged Mr. Robot S2 “sophomore slump” can’t help his chances in such a tight race. And don’t forget how under this popularity vote Emmy system both Better Call Saul and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt got completely shut out last year, in spite of having 7 nominations each, including series bids. I could easily see Mr. Robot suffering the same fate, it has just 6 nominations, with not even a sole Directing nomination or nod for Critics Choice and Globe winner Christian Slater! Maybe they like it enough to nominate it, but they don’t LOVE it enough to give any big Awards.

    I honestly am convinced Spacey is FAR more likely to win than Robin Wright, both him and Viola have been the SAG TV Drama winners for the past 2 years. Plus, Emmy voters love repeats, and none of Spacey’s fellow nominees have won for their shows before, whereas Wright has to contend with last year’s reigning champ Viola Davis!

    Just my thoughts. 🙂

    I’m pretty sure that OJ isn’t winning both Writing and Directing. At best, only one of them (probably Directing, since the vote splitting in Writing will be hard to overcome).

    I try to be the one who gets all or most of my predictions right.

    I disagree. The People V. O.J. Simpson was such a phenomenon that it will be hard for voters to overlook all the nominees in both categories.

    The show could have the majority of votes and still lose, especially when it doesn’t have one episode that stands out, which is the case.

    I still think one of them can win.

    I’m not immediately recalling … but has there been one year’s lead and supporting winners, from any genre, all repeat at the same time in another year?

    The lead and supporting predictions, in comedy, all won last year.

    If the answer to my first paragraph’s question is no … I would let at least one of those four go.

    My guess is they will all repeat this year thanks to stellar episode submissions.

    Well, like last year, I did a terrible job predicting the guest acting winners. My only correct prediction was Tina Fey & Amy Poehler.

    That’s what you’re always gonna get at the Emmys if you don’t take some chances.

    @Teridax Not true, Ryan Murphy’s stellar premiere (From The Ashes of Tragedy) and D.V. Devincentis “apologies for name-butchering!” (Marica, Marcia, Marcia) are easy standouts in Directing and Writing as far as EPISODES are concerned.

    However, I think Emmy voters will go for the showrunners Scott and Larry for (Ashes) in Writing, seeing that episodes don’t matter anymore. Just look at Game of Thrones winning for “Mother’s Mercy”, nobody watched that and seriously said, “yep that was the best written TV Drama episode of the year!” I wholeheartedly assure you, nobody freaking said that, not over the Mad Men finale or if you were underwhelmed by (Person to Person) then (Five-O) from Better Call Saul.

    Ryan Murphy is the least likely out of the three OJ directors to win directing. His direction was the most polarizing out of the three. It’s The Normal Heart all over again

    I am taking a few chances with some bold predictions, such as Transparent “Man On The Land” for Comedy Directing, Ryan Seacrest for Reality Competition Host, Kevin Spacey for Drama Lead Actor, and The People V. O.J. Simpson “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia” for Limited Series/Movie Writing.
