HBO will sweep again with Game of Thrones, Veep and Show Me a Hero.September 22, 2015 at 7:46 pm #361879This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 22, 2015 at 9:00 pm #361880
Westworld is a wild card.
Vinyl shoud be a big player.
Ubreakable Kimmy Schmidt steps up its game second season and becomes competitive for the win.
House of Cards get some big snubs if this isn’t the final season (and I haven’t heard anything to suggest it will be).
Show Me a Hero hopefully sweeps the Limited/Movie categories. But who’s kidding, its Fargo’s to lose (unless S2 bombs like TD).September 22, 2015 at 10:59 pm #361881
Show Me a Hero buzz is amusing. David Simon gets a bit of buzz with every new project but they mostly shut him out anyway, which goes extra when you’re faced with a wider popular vote and up against Fargo (and, really, based on the nominations the worst AHS seasons have racked up, True Detective will be all over those nominations too).September 22, 2015 at 11:03 pm #361882
Ben Mendelsohn – Bloodline
He will be in season two as a series regular.
Oh. Well, I still don’t predict him. Bloodline was a new recent show that got 2 noms and 0 wins. It’s only fading into Emmy obscurity from there I think, even faster than UKS which has Tina Fey, and Mendelsohn’s role by design will have to get significantly smaller from co-lead levels. The only thing in its favour is that more people are at least mildly familiar with Netflix shows than any one specific non-HBO cable network like Showtime or FX.
There is tons of new blood coming into that category (depending on submissions we could see some combo of Wagner Moura, Ed Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Anthony Hopkins, Paul Giamatti, Ray Romano, Colm Feore, Pedro Pascal, Rufus Sewell, Giancarlo Esposito, etc.). I think that category gonna get worked over thoroughly, because everyone here’s predictions where each category has one new addition and two new shows appear across the board and some categories are exactly the same don’t hold much water with how things generally change.September 22, 2015 at 11:15 pm #361883
I don’t know if Veep/Thrones are going to do it again. I could see comedy shaking up but drama all depends how Westworld does.
Actor- I think this is Spacey finally. With Cranston/Hamm out, he seems like the next person they are inching to reward or Hopkins for Westworld
Actress- Taraji. They seem to want to shake things up in this specific category due to the rich amount of talent that comes in every year so I’m not sure if Viola will repeat.
Supporting Actor- Depends on Dinklage and Banks’ seasons but I think Ed Harris will provide a serious threat for Westworld
Supporting Actress- Maybe Uzo again. If Baranski is given something big I could see her finally taking it
Actor Comedy- Tambor again. Though the reports of his less screentime this season worry me. William H. Macy could spoil
Actress- Dreyfus (sigh) again.
Supporting Actor- Tituss Burgess. I think they’ll do the right thing next year
Supporting Actress- Janney seems like one of those predict her until she loses people. Dianne Wiest is fantastic on the new CBS show Life in Pieces so if the show breaks out and even if she is the sole nomination like Janney, she is a 2 time Oscar winner I could see her being someone to look out for
Movie- All the Way
Limited Series- Fargo vs Show Me a Hero
Actor- Oscar Isaac vs Bryan Cranston
Actress- Viola Davis will be here right?
No idea supporting
Variety Talk- John Oliver
Variety Sketch- Key and PeeleSeptember 22, 2015 at 11:28 pm #361884
Actress- Viola Davis will be here right?
No. Fences won’t be ready and I don’t think the Harriet Tubman movie will be either. A good bet to win here is Kerry Washington. She plays Anita Hill in HBO’s Confirmation. There’s also Gillian Anderson in The X-Files and Sarah Paulson in American Crime Story: The People vs. O. J. Simpson.

If Oscar Isaac doesn’t win I’m going to murder someone (espcially if he loses to Cranston’s fifth go round).September 23, 2015 at 11:15 am #361887This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.September 23, 2015 at 12:04 pm #361888
I wouldn’t be surprised if Regina King gets nominated for her role in The Leftovers next season. It looks interesting.September 23, 2015 at 12:40 pm #361889
^If Regina gets nominated I can finally be one hundred percent sure about that speeches really means a lot in the Emmys. Her speech was nothing special but the atmosphere in the room when she won was impressive, of course thanks to the helps of Cookie.September 23, 2015 at 12:54 pm #361890
Doesn’t even really matter if critics like Westworld with that cast + HBO. It will be somewhat represented basically no matter what because a lot of people will watch. Acclaim will factor into it getting a series nomination maybe, but there’s no way that whole cast is shut out or Supporting Actor doesn’t get retooled entirely.
I don’t think Hopkins is the Lead though (that perception seems only based on people looking at Wikipedia or him being listed in articles about the show because he’s famous). I have a friend who did extra work on that set who says James Marsden is the closest thing to a lead, along with some unknowns. It will probably be “and Anthony Hopkins” in the credits. This lines up with the movie it’s adapted from and Hopkins’ lack of interest in massive roles these days. So he’d be a player in a Supporting race, but I expect Ed Harris will get better material/buzz for a villain role.September 24, 2015 at 1:55 pm #361891
