    For comedy, I’m predicting:

    Silicon Valley: Season 2
    Louie: Season 5 
    Transparent: Season 1

    For drama, I’m predicting:

    Better Call Saul: Season 1
    Mad Men: Season 7B
    Orange is the New Black: Season 2
    Game of Thrones: Season 5

    Ooh, smart list.

    Without seeing what episodes each show submits (which is key), I would say:

    Comedy
    Silicon Valley
    Transparent
    Veep 

    Modern Family and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will only get directing (hell, maybe Glee will get a slot).  
    Episodes and Louie will only get writing. 

    Drama
    Mad Men
    Game of Thrones
    Orange is the New Black 
    Better Call Saul

    The Knick and Homeland will only get directing (tie!)
    Mad Men will probably score 2 writing nods.

    Louie will certainly get all three nominations

    CCTA snub across the board + no buzz + lowest ratings ever. 

    I don’t think it’s as sure a bet as most do for directing.

    I think Veep is a pretty safe bet, because I suspect they will realize that submitting only one episode for directing will be the best way to go. Writing should be no problem, and series is a given. I suspect that Louie, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, Veep and Glee will occupy the 5 writing slots for comedy. Transparent is being really overestimated, and while it’s safe for Series, it’s not going to sweep.

    House of Cards, Mad Men, and Game of Thrones seem like they will receive all three on the drama side. Maybe Orange is the New Black.

    Untitled is the closest thing that can beat Connection Lost, Louie is safe in directing.

    I understand Mad Men being overrated when it was a good show but now….just crazy talk.

    Hopefully the only show to get the Big Five will be the best show on TV, Mad Men.

    Series, Wtg, Dir, Actor, Actress.
