    HBO is up for at least one nomination in each main category for the Mini/Movie races. Gold Derby predicts HBO to get an Emmy in all of the categories except for Supporting Actress, where they predict Sarah Paulson to win for American Horror Story: Freak Show (FX). But right behind Paulson who has 4/9 odds, is MoNique with 5/1 odds. Could HBO pull it off? Or will Paulson win it and/or will there be an upset in another category?

    Ooh, it is possible.  I hope that Zoe Kazan gets it, but I am predicting Sarah Paulson.

    They need to watch out for The Honorable Woman in writing, after all of those Brit upsets in that category.

    Finn Wittrock and Jessica Lange could upset.

    But going seven for eight in the major categories is very probable.

    Ostensibly, two heads are better than one. However, I remain hopeful that Mo’Nique Imes-Jackson will be celebrated with a win as Outstanding Supporting Actress for her work as Ma Rainey in HBO’s Bessie.

    Maybe, but frankly, Sarah Paulson has to win this year.
    And for the record, The Honorable Woman could be a good spoiler for its original impeccable teleplay.

    ^Yeah, I think is Paulson’s to win. MoNique could upset, but her lack of screentime and how she just is gone for the whole middle part of the film hurts her

    There is going to be a huge party at the HBO headquarters if HBO does the above AND wins comedy and drama series. 

    Expect to see a bunch of articles lamenting the Emmy voting system if it happens, but it’s really quite simple: the broadcast networks just can’t keep up.

    I want Maggie Gyllenhaal to win but fully expect to see Frances McDormand winning.

    I don’t think so.  I just finished watching Wolf Hall, and while it started slow, I was mesmerized by the end.  I can’t help but wonder if Olive Kittridge might be Mildred Pierce-d: A prestige project lead by an Oscar-Winner that gets trumped by a costumed PBS Masterpiece Miniseries (as Downton Abbey did).  Granted, Wolf Hall doesn’t have the word-of-mouth juice that Downton had.  But it is a quality piece of television.

    At first I thought that American Crime would be the spoiler, but I now think that Wolf Hall might play that role.  It certainly is a threat in the Limited Series, Writing, and Directing catogories.  

    I loved Richard Jenkins, but Mark Rylance owns every moment of WH.  He is literally in every scene for six hours straight.  He is the man to beat, with Oyelowo coming in second due to his inspired (and crazed) performance.

    In the vein of Mildred Pierce’s Emmy hopes, however, I do think that Olive could win for Best Actress (the easiest bet of the night, although I’d be happy for Maggie Gyllenhaal, who was also brilliant) and Best Supporting Actor.  Bill Murray would seem like a shoe-in, but I’m less convinced in his category. Damien Lewis and Finn Wittrock are certainly “showier” in their performances.  But it’s Bill freakin’ Murray.  I did love Richard Cabral, though, and wouldn’t be surprised if he shocked the world. 

    Supporting Actress, IMO, is Paulson’s to lose.  AHS has always received an acting win, and to play such a unique character(s) so convincingly deserves recognition.  

    I just remember last year when everyone was SHOCKED by the movie/mini category winners.  So I personally think the Olive Kittridge fans might be getting out ahead of themselves a bit.
