    6. This Is Us
    7. Homecoming

    Game of Thrones
    The Crown
    Ozark
    Killing Eve
    Better Call Saul
    Succession
    This Is Us

    If The Crown ends up not meeting the deadline, replace it with Homecoming. Truly the only other show that I see as a possible threat is Bodyguard and I may very well slot that in at some point (even over Homecoming) depending on how this race shakes out.

    Thrones is an obvious lock. The Crown will be just fine as long as it is premiering in time. Ozark has the guild love to back up breaking into a race it probably placed eighth in last year. Killing Eve seems poised for a breakthrough second season, but that could also end up not being the case. Better Call Saul is solidly making the lineup, even though I don’t know if voters really care about the show. Succession fared well with the guilds and could get a second season bump like GLOW did in Comedy Series last year with the second season premiering as Emmy voting gears up. This Is Us is in a good spot due to some competitors missing this season, but I think it is losing support so I wouldn’t be surprised to see it miss too.

    Game of Thrones

    The Crown

    Better Call Saul

    Ozark

    Killing Eve

    Bodyguard

    This is Us

     

    If The Crown is ineligible, I would substitute either Pose or Succession in. I have left Homecoming completely out of my predictions and I was wondering why so many people still have it in theirs? I just don’t see it, sorry. The show only generated buzz when it was released, but it couldn’t translate this into any wins at the past award ceremonies and now it seems Julia Roberts, Stephan James and Sam Esmail are all NOT returning for season 2. To me the show lost any and all momentum.

    1. Game of Thrones – locked to win
    2. The Crown – came through with noms and wins last year. Now is being fronted by a new Oscar winner. Even with a dip in quality it will remain
    3. Better Call Saul – default pick, got SAG ensemble nom
    4. Ozark – The industry loves it
    5. Killing Eve – I am expecting a sophmore slump but I expect for nominations it will still be able to ride the wave of how well it did this winter
    6. Succession – Snob appeal HBO drama, won DGA
    7. Homecoming – acclaimed, star power, Amazon’s only push in the category

    This Is Us is having the weakest season so far, and I think the chances in the Drama Series category are gonna be low. When Grey’s Anatomy and The Good Wife, other two great network shows, had a drop in quality (both after 2 consecutive nominations) the Academy didn’t nominated again, and they both have good seasons even below average (like TIU). Good Wife even with a perfect 5th season was never been nominated again, so if TIU is not nominated this year, it’s very likely that they will never again be listed here.

    Game of Thrones is the biggest lock of the night.

    Other than Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus has never faced a stronger competitor and the industry has never responded to a comedy like they have to The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Game of Thrones has scarcely had weaker competition. It is much more locked than Louis-Dreyfus. Peter Dinklage is more of a lock than she is.

    There is no way Game of Thrones loses Best Drama Series, unless The Crown brings something dramatic and irresistable like Princess Diana in the mix. But even then there is no way it loses. As mentioned above GoT will win because of weaker competition, Veep has a chance of losing to Mrs Maisel (I mean I love both shows so don’t even know who should and will win!)

    My predictions:

    • Game of Thrones
    • The Crown
    • Killing Eve
    • Better Call Saul
    • Homecoming
    • Ozark
    • This is Us

    Spoilers : Pose, Succession

    Long Shot Spoiler : Bodyguard (if Crown is ineligible)
