    I’d love to see either Jussie Smollett or Trai Byers from Empire sneak into Drama Supporting Actor. I’m also rooting for Jaime Camil (Jane The Virgin) to pop up in Comedy Supporting Actor.

    I personally cannot wait for the snubs. I know there is a rather significant crowd of Emmy watchers who tune in every year just for the glorious snubs the Emmys are known for.

    And here i am not only talking about actors/shows who are destined/ predicted to break through at the Emmys. I am referring to current nominees who are considered favourites/locks to return. The ones Emmy voters grow tired of.

    The shocks. The meltdowns. The thread topics that are going to be started. “X deserved the nomination, Y doesn’t deserve that nomination”.
    “How the hell did X get in?”.

    Thursday can’t come soon enough.

    This one is really up in the air, so I doubt we’ll have many people calling snubs and surprises in the category. My biggest surprise is Elizabeth Banks – Modern Family.

    Drama Supporting Actress:
    Snub:
    Sissy Spacek- Bloodline
    Surprise: Lorraine Toussaint- Orange is the New Black

    Drama Supporting Actor:
    Snub:
    Jon Voight- Ray Donovan and Ben Mendelsohn- Bloodline
    Surprise: Micheal Kelly- House of Cards and Kit Harrington- Game of Thrones
    This is going to be the first category I click on when the nominations come out. Peter Dinklage is the only lock in the category, which makes room for a lot of great snubs and surprises.

    Drama Guest Actress:
    Snub:
    Lois Smith- The Americans
    Surprise: Patricia Arquette- Boardwalk Empire

    Movie/Mini Actress:
    Snub:
    Frances O’Connor- The Missing
    Surprise: Nicole Kidman- Grace of Monaco

    My overall snub goes to Bloodline. I’m currently predicting it to receive zero nominations. Although I’m not predicting it, It would not surprise me if Better Call Saul received zero nominations for acting and series as well. We’ll see on Thursday if voters are actually watching these shows,

    Drama Series:
    Surprise: Homeland.-DGA Win.
    Snub: Better Call Saul.-Spin-off bias.

    Drama Lead Actress:
    Surprise: Kerry Washington-They do like Scandal and this has nothing to do with the arrival of another 2 black ladies.
    Snub: Julianna Margulies- Archie Panjabi and, oh yeah, the network shows buzzs ends after 5 seasons.

    Drama Lead Actor:
    Surprises: Hugh Bonneville-He was left out of the category last year solely because of True Detective gentlemans. He is probably more loved by his peers than Dockery. 
    Michael Sheen. Another unlucky man who should be mad at HBO for submitting True Detective in the drama field last year. He is the face of show and probably a better/more popular actor than Lizzy Caplan. If they still love the show, he could find himself a spot in this years much more open-field.

    Snub: Bob Odenkirk. Surprised that everyone sees him as a lock. This is Emmys we talk about here, people! They’ve never recognized his work on Breaking Bad or Fargo. Even if he gets a nom over Clive Owen, Jeff Daniels and Terrence Howard, I’d call it a surpise.

    Comedy Series
    Surprise: Grace and Frankie- Old people, old voters. 4 veterans. The rest doesn’t matter. Shouldn’t have been so low at the prediction center.

    Comedy Lead Actress:
    Surprises: Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Melissa McCarthy- Just name-checking.
    Snubs: Ellie Kemper, Gina Rodriguez- The CW. I don’t need an another reason.

    Comedy Supporting Actor:
    Surprise: TJ Miller.
    Snub: Jesse Tyler Ferguson. It’s crazy, even for Emmy voters while O’Neill and Stonestreet already were left ouf of the field, this chap still keeps nominating. But I think his time is over for good. He might have gotten last years nom. because of his wedding storyline.


    Miniseries:
    Surprise: Houdini. Have you guys seen its industry buzz? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3132738/awards?ref_=tt_awd

    I see Michelle Dockery being ignored by so many people, but I think she will get in and I wouldn’t even consider it a surprise! Timothy Olyphant coming back to the lead actor category would be a very pleasant surprise. Peter Dinklage getting snubbed isn’t entirely impossible. For the comedy categories, Chris Pratt has become so popular over the last 12 months, I’d find it hard to believe he won’t get votes.

    I used to think Bob Odenkirk was a lock but now I’m so sure. He could be the one that voters just don’t embrace. I’m thinking this could be the six now:

     

    Hugh Bonneville, “Downton Abbey”
    Jeff Daniels, “The Newsroom”
    Jon Hamm, “Mad Men”
    Terrence Howard, “Empire”
    Clive Owen, “The Knick”
    Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards”.
