Comedy Series
With last year\'s winner Schitt\'s Creek off the board, the Best Comedy Series is wide-open. In fact, the only 2020 nominee even eligible again here in 2021 is The Kominsky Method. That means the eight slots in the category could be filled by shows ignored last year. Regardless of how the Emmy nominations shakeout, however, the expectation is that Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso will emerge victoriously. The HBO Max series The Flight Attendant is also a strong contender here.

Comedy Actress
Kaley Cuoco is favored to win in the Best Comedy Actress category but even without last year\'s winner, Catherine O\'Hara, the category is still potentially loaded with veteran stars like Allison Janney, Tracee Ellis Ross, Sutton Foster, Sara Gilbert, and Jean Smart.

Comedy Actor
Last year\'s winner, Eugene Levy, is absent from the category, which leaves Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis in prime position to add to his trophy case after wins at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards in the same comedy category.

Comedy Supporting Actress
A theme sensed: Last year\'s winner here was Annie Murphy from Schitt\'s Creek. Without her in contention, Hannah Waddingham is the favorite to win in the category for her Ted Lasso performance. But as usual, a handful of SNL stars are also serious contenders, including Kate McKinnon, Maya Rudolph, and Cecily Strong.

Comedy Supporting Actor
Much like in the supporting actress category, the Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series list of contenders is heavy on SNL and Ted Lasso stars. At the moment, Kenan Thompson is favored to win what would be his first acting Emmy. The longtime cast member previously won an Emmy for original music and lyrics at the 2018 event.

Drama Series
Despite three seasons of acclaim, the Netflix series The Crown has never won in the Best Drama category. That is expected to change this year as the show is an overwhelming favorite to win the Best Drama award. Netflix has never won in the top categories at the Emmys, a distinction that should fall this year.

Drama Actress
The Crown star Emma Corrin is not only expected to land her first Emmy nomination for playing Princess Diana on the Netflix series, but also receive her first Emmy win. But if Corrin were to stumble, it is likely the award would stay within The Crown family: Olivia Colman is also widely assumed to land a nomination and could easily win her first Emmy.

Drama Actor
Much like Emma Corrin, who plays Princess Diana on The Crown, Josh O\'Connor, the show\'s Prince Charles, is favored to win here. But there is another Netflix star who could potentially stage an upset: Rege-Jean Page, a breakout performer on the series Bridgerton.

Drama Supporting Actress
Another drama category, another potential victory for The Crown. While Gillian Anderson is favored to win here for playing Margaret Thatcher, Helena Bonham Carter is also a strong contender. Other possibilities include Samira Wiley, Ann Dowd, and Yvonne Strahovski for The Handmaid\'s Tale.

Drama Supporting Actor
Michael Kenneth Williams has never won at the Emmy Awards -- not for his iconic role on The Wire or for his performance on The Night Of. But the actor is a favorite this year for his supporting turn in Lovecraft Country. Other contenders include Tobias Menzies from The Crown, Bradley Whitford from The Handmaid\'s Tale, and Giancarlo Esposito for The Mandalorian.

Limited Series
One of the most stacked categories of the year is Limited Series, where The Queen\'s Gambit, The Underground Railroad, Mare of Easttown, The Undoing, I May Destroy You, Small Axe, and WandaVision, among other shows, will compete for just five slots.

TV Movie
This year\'s TV Movie category is paced by the Amazon film Sylvie\'s Love.

Movie/Limited Actress
Much like the Limited Series category, the best movie or limited series actress category is overloaded with worthy nominees, including favorite Anya-Taylor Joy, plus Oscar winners Nicole Kidman and Kate Winslet, plus stars like Michaela Coel and Elizabeth Olsen.

Movie/Limited Actor
Without last year\'s Emmy winner here, Mark Ruffalo, eligible again, both Ethan Hawke and Hugh Grant -- each of whom lost to Ruffalo at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards this year -- could emerge victoriously in the best movie/limited series actor category.

Movie/Limited Supporting Actress
It was Agatha all along? Kathryn Hahn is a big favorite in this category for her scene-stealing, meme-worthy performance in WandaVision.

Movie/Limited Supporting Actor
Star Wars actor John Boyega could follow his supporting actor win at the Golden Globes this year with a victory at the Emmy Awards for his Small Axe performance. If not Boyega, popular limited series like The Undoing (Donald Sutherland), The Queen\'s Gambit (Bill Camp), and The Underground Railroad (William Jackson Harper) could factor into the race.
