    Of course, you all get to change your predictions before the main ceremony, but let’s see how perfect you can get your Emmy ballot. I think Macca and eastwest are the only ones to really go all out, so I would like to see others give it the best shot they can give even in categories they know nothing about.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    I’d be very happy if all your prediction will come through eventually.

    I’d like Diana Rigg to win guest actress (and she might have a chance), and perhaps D&D for GoT writing (less chance there) but eventually if what you say is 100% i’ll be totally ok with it. The categories I want GoT to win the most in are Drama series, Directing, and Music Composition

    Right now, the 5 categories I feel the least confident in for the main Primetime Emmy ceremony are, ranked from hardest to least difficult:

    1. Mulaney (Do I just be a sheep and blankly predict Samantha Bee even though her Puerto Rico special got barely any buzz unlike her acclaimed Not The White House Correspondents Dinner which won this category for her previously?)

    2. Borstein (Maybe Beetz takes it and Altanta sweeps all 4 acting categories, doing what I had once thought The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel would be most likely to do. Maybe McKinnon is the 3rd repeat winner in main acting categories besides Glover and Moss. Maybe even Mullally takes it in spite of her show having greatly under-performed due to Will and Grace having won multiple awards when I thought it would get shut out. Maybe a lot of things, too many to think about.)

    3. Atlanta (Comedy Series will be a head-scratcher for me right up until the very end.)

    4. Dixon (Could be Ramirez, maybe there is enough passion for Wittrock, Daniels possibly but unlikely after how Godless basically bombed at Creative Arts, this category is ridiculously tough.)

    5. Podeswa (Does Daldry take it after all since The Crown won Casting?)

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    I think I’ll stick with Atlanta for comedy series since it won most of what it needed to last night.

    eastwest you’er predicating Claire Foy and Tatiana before Moss.

    Alexis Bledel followed by Brown in supporting.

    Adlon over Brosnahan in comedy

    I am assuming your intention is not just to go against the grain, so why those choices?

    The only one that’s correct is that I have Bledel ranked higher than MBB and they’re both at the bottom. Don’t know how you got your info.

    I think he/she is talking about the order of the nominees you put in your list.

    Yes, eastwest, I see that you are also “predicting” The Alienist, The Amazing Race, American Vandal and At Home with Amy Sedaris. Surely there must be some kind of pAttern here!

    I assume that for some reason bolding the winners didn’t work.

    The highlight isn’t showing on my browser and I totally failed to notice your list is in alphabetical order.
