What new drama will do the best at this year’s Emmys?
If I had to pick one, it would be Vinyl. Vinyl is executive produced by one of the most popular and acclaimed directors, Martin Scorsese (who directed the pilot) and Mick Jagger. Its on HBO, and stars Emmy winners Bobby Canavale and Ray Romano.
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.February 25, 2016 at 10:10 pm #367956
Don’t forget that another one of Vinyl’s creators Terrence Winter is the head of writer’s branch in the Academy.
The answer is, Mr.Robot.
Narcos is a big question mark. It’s both popular and on Netflix. That combination has worked for so many shows so far, but hard to figure out where it can get in. Wish there were more than 5 slots for directing and writing categories.February 25, 2016 at 10:42 pm #367957
Out of these, Mr. Robot, Billions, Vinyl and hopefully Narcos.February 25, 2016 at 11:22 pm #367958
Mr. Robot and Vinyl will probably both make it. Mr. Robot has been recognized everywhere and buzz for it is off the charts, really the Emmys will have some serious explaining to do if it misses. Vinyl has the period piece vibe and the Winter/Scorcese influence behind it and in a year without an obvious seventh series nominee I think it gets in. I do hope The Path is good enough to break in, but something tells me all that will get, no matter how good it is, is maybe an Aaron Paul nomination.February 26, 2016 at 5:17 am #367959
It is gotta be “The Path”. God I hope I am not wrong on this one.February 26, 2016 at 6:12 am #367960
“Horace and Pete”, duh.February 26, 2016 at 6:47 am #367961
Mr. Robot should and hopefully will get in there. It has been recongized by the Critics and other award shows and the second season will be out around voting/nominations. It had an excellent first season that truly deserves recongition. I definitely think Christian Slater and Rami Malek will get in there too.
I think Vinyl will make it in as well because it has such prestige. Billions will probably get acting noms.
I’m curious about The Path. I hope it’s good and that it being on Hulu doesn’t get them ignored.February 26, 2016 at 7:28 am #367962
Can’t see how they resist “Mr. Robot.” If “The Family” is any good, though, Joan Allen should be a shoo-in for a nom.February 26, 2016 at 8:52 am #367963
I am also very perplexed what to do with Narcos. I could see it making a big splash and surprising with a lot of noms or missing out 100%. Is it possible it bumps out Orange or HOC? I know I am a bit less bullish on HOC’s chances overall than most of these forums. Otherwise, I do not see room for it in the drama series line up.
Mr. Robot and Vinyl I am fairly confident are going to do well. I am currently predicting Emmy favorite Cannavale to take this home in a cake walk.
I am almost certain Mr. Robot is in for Rami and series and most likely Slater. A true testament to its strength will be if it can make a well deserved showing in writing and directing.February 26, 2016 at 12:08 pm #367964
Mr. Robot has been on a roll and has the right momentum to break into some major races this year. Drama series, Rami Malek, and Directing noms should all be within reach.
Amazon has proved themselves to be great campaigners, so I wouldnt be surprised to see some nominations for Man in the High Castle.February 29, 2016 at 1:16 pm #367965
Definitely Mr. Robot. Emmy voters will latch on to this show. The buzz is huge.
Vinyl – still early to tell. Definitely Directing and Bobby Cannavale at the VERY least.
I am very curious about The Path – will it be Hulu’s 1st Emmy nomination? It seems very promising and has an Emmy darling (Aaron Paul) in the lead.February 29, 2016 at 2:02 pm #367966

Mr. Robot and Vinyl are both going to do very well, I think.
