    I’d say:

    LOCKS
    1. The Crown
    2. Stranger Things
    3. Westworld

    VERY LIKELY
    4. Better Call Saul
    5. The Americans

    POSSIBLE
    6. Homeland
    7. House of Cards (I’m very curious to see whether last season is as bad as they say)
    8. This is Us
    9. The Handmaid’s Tale
    10. The Leftovers
    11. Mr. Robot
    12. Orange is the New Black
    13. Ray Donovan

    I’m probably being (too) conservative, but the Emmys often are too.

    In my opinion, The Americans and Better Call Saul are certain to be nominated again. New shows certain to join them are The Crown, Stranger Things and Westworld.

    House of Cards should return. Mr. Robot and Homeland will probably be snubbed because of competition, but since I’m skeptical about This Is Us and The Handmaid’s Tale, I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of them nominated once again.

    Outside these, I think The Leftovers has more chances than 13 Reasons Why and any other show.

    Westworld & Stranger Things are absolutely locked, especially how strong they’ve performed elsewhere. The Crown seems pretty safe. Better Call Saul is easily in and the safest of the returning shows. The upward trajectory for The Americans means I can’t see it missing. I have This is Us and House of Cards in the last two spots. I think Homeland’s time is up and Mr Robot is not the hot show it was last year. This is Us is risky as it’s a network show, but I think there’s enough industry support.

    1. Westworld
    2. Stranger Things
    3. Better Call Saul
    4. The Crown
    5. The Americans
    6. This is Us
    7. House of Cards
    ——
    8. Homeland

    He’s confusing the Emmys with the People’s Choice Awards

    its a critically acclaimed show that almost everybody watched. To be nominated, voters check 10 different dramas. The order does not matter. Do most voters even watch 10 dramas? Almost everybody watched 13 Reasons Why. It was hugely popular and despite some people hating it, it has been mostly met with praise.

    Thats stretching it

    Almost everybody watched 13 Reasons Why.

    Most of the buzz is from the 25 and under crowd, which contains a very small amount of academy members.

    Is this really true though? Yes a lot of people up to the age of about 35 watched it and created the buzz but does that age bracket really matter that much when it comes to the Emmys?

    FYC: The Crown, Fleabag and AHS: Roanoke for Gold Derby TV Awards

    I very much doubt most Emmy voters gave 13 Reasons Why the time of day. Any buzz was generated by the teenage demographic. It’s certainly not prestige nor “critically acclaimed”.

    It has an 8.6 on IMDB, a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 76 on Metacritic, the last season of Game of Thrones won best Drama series at the Critics choice with a 73 on Metacritic. If you want to argue its prestige, it has an Oscar winner directing the pilot.

    Most of the buzz is from the 25 and under crowd, which contains a very small amount of academy members.

    Please go back in the Stranger Things forums. Everybody was saying that the demographic was too young and that its not an Emmy show. That is exactly what people are saying about 13 Reasons Why. The buzz was so huge that everybody is watching it. Hell, my mom called me to tell me that she binged the whole show, and she hates TV.

    The Emmys’s are different now. They work hard to always go for the cool show. 13 Reasons Why is for sure a “cool show”. It has critical acclaim (fight me), popularity, and buzz. I am not confident in predicting it, I have it in 7th place, but I don’t think it should be discounted.

    1-The Crown
    2-Westworld
    3-Stranger Things
    4-Better Call Saul
    5-The Americans
    6-Mr. Robot
    7-The Leftovers

    8-This Is Us
    9-The Handmaid’s Tale
    10-Homeland/House of Cards (only because bad taste is sometime strong in the academy. Neither deserve to be in the top 100)

    13 Reasons Why is in consideration and the behind the scenes talent definitely gives it prestige. It’s not getting in before This Is Us or Homeland.

    The GOT Metacritic score from last year is only from the first episode. The season got significantly more critically acclaimed as time went on. And IMDB is not a valid source on whether or not something is critically acclaimed.

    And Stranger Things was much more of a phenomenon than 13 Reasons Why was.
