    Hello, Everyone!

     

    Given that the 2015 Creative Arts Emmys are behind—and that the guest-acting trophies were awarded to Bradley Whitford (Amazon’s Transparent) and Joan Cusack (Showtime’s Shameless), on the comedy side and, on the drama side, Reg E. Cathey (Netflix’s House of Cards) and Margo Martindale (FX’s The Americans)—who do you want to win at the [Sunday,] September 20, 2015 prime-time Emmy Awards? (I’m wanting to ask because I’ve read a number of reactions.)

     

    This is suggesting respondents to list a category-by-category breakdown of who one wants to win at least in the comedy and drama genres. If you want to take it further by adding other fields—like variety and reality and, of course, miniseries/movies—please go ahead.

     

     

    From me:

    COMEDY

    • Series: Transparent (Amazon)
    • Actor: Jeffrey Tambor, Transparent (Amazon)
    • Actress: Lisa Kudrow, The Comeback (HBO)
    • Supporting Actor: Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
    • Supporting Actress: Anna Chlumsky, Veep (HBO)
    • Directing: Lisa Soloway, Transparent “Best New Girl” (Amazon)
    • Writing: Lisa Soloway, Transparent “Pilot” (Amazon)

     

    DRAMA

    • Series: Game of Thrones (HBO)
    • Actor: Jon Hamm, Mad Men (AMC)
    • Actress: Viola Davis, How to Get Away with Murder (ABC)
    • Supporting Actor: Ben Mendelsohn, Bloodline (Netflix)
    • Supporting Actress: Lena Headey, Game of Thrones (HBO)
    • Directing: David Nutter, Game of Thrones “Mother’s Mercy” (HBO)
    • Writing: David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Game of Thrones “Mother’s Mercy” (HBO)

     

     

    By the way: No need to explain yourself.
