What program do you think will sweep the Emmys on the 20th?
I have Game of Thrones and Veep both winning three, but I think Veep has the easiest chance of winning all three so I voted for that.
I have Olive Kitteridge winning six main awards. Gold Derby odds have it winning five.
I think it’s between Veep, Game of Thrones, Transparent, and Olive Kitteridge.
I’m leaning towards the lattter, since there’s a good chance that it could take a mix of Miniseries, Lead Actress, Lead Actor, Supporting Actor, Writing, and Directing. I’d be surprised if it took less than 3 categories.
‘Olive Kitteridge’ is going to win writing, directing, miniseries, McDormand, and Jenkins (5).
I think people are overestimating Olive Kitteridge, I think its best bets are Best Actress (Which could be upset by Latifah or Gyllenhall) and Best Miniseries (which could sadly be upset by AHS). I think Oyelowo is a pretty safe bet for Nightingale, if voters are actually watching the tapes this year, they will give it to him and he is arguably the most repsected actor in his category. Murray could win, but the voters are obviously watching AHS and could give it to Finn Wittrock. The writers branch loves British stuff (Sherlock last year and The Hour the year before that) so I think Wolf Hall will take that and I think Bessie will also win directing.
I think this is Veeps year to sweep. Writing seems like a lock to me, while JLD is very likely and Chlumsky and Hale could be spoilers.
Maybe Mad Men. I think Hamm and writing is a lock and Hendricks and maybe even Moss could upset
