    G’Day, For most of the emmy season I was thinking ‘Transparent’ was being overrated. It took out the globe for sure but just speak to last year’s champ “Brooklyn Nine Nine” and a slew of other freshmen shows that theGlobes set up for Emmy disappointment. Being a comedy that skewed dramatic, and being on a network/service untested on the Emmy scene I thought would prove difficult for it to break through. 

    However, the coverage of Caitlyn Jenner and the incresed awareness of trans-gender issues there has been an added a relevence and social context to the series. Dare I say it may now be more accessible, seem more important and sought after? So I have now added it into my predictions?

    What do we think about the chances for this show? Is it a lock now? was it a lock anyway?  Does this help Jeffrey Tambor garner a win, now it’s more on popular vote? How far can it go at the Emmys?

    I think Jeffrey Tambor and Bradley Whitford are pretty close to locks for wins.

    It was a strong contender to win even before the Caitlyn Jenner stuff (#2 or #3); this just makes it even more of a threat.

    Finally someone thinking right.

    Caitlyn Jenner will have no affect on whether Tambor wins but because her coming out it so massive and just the built up in the respect given to the trans community with people like Laverne Cox on Time magazine it makes the show and perfect more relevant and important then almost anything in the comedy categories.

    I hope Transparent sweeps because it certainly deserves it. It’s the most consistent show out of all the comedy contenders (that includes Veep).

    it will be a boost for the actors not series. but their chances were looking solid to begin with. its a cherry on top for them.
