The Emmys are this Sunday! So, we made our predictions in every category.
Will Win: Veep
Could Win: Atlanta
Dark Horse: Black-ish
It’s going to be hard for any series to overcome Veep at its height.
Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
Will Win: Jeffrey Tambour, Transparent
Could Win: Donald Glover, Atlanta
Dark Horse: Anthony Anderson, Black-ish
A lot of pundits are predicting Glover, but I find it hard to believe Tambour isn’t going to three-peat.
Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
Will Win: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
Could Win: Tracee Ellis Ross, Black-ish
Dark Horse: Allison Janney, Mom
Louis-Dreyfuss continues her 5-year streak here.
Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
Will Win: Kate McKinnon, Saturday Night Live
Could Win: Anna Chlumsky, Veep
Dark Horse: Leslie Jones, Saturday Night Live
McKinnon has the edge, but having three Saturday Night Live ladies in the category could have a negative effect. If that’s the case, then Anna Chlumsky could finally win a very overdue Emmy for the series.
Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Will Win: Alex Baldwin, Saturday Night Live
Could Win: Louie Anderson, Baskets
Dark Horse: Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Baldwin should easily win this.
Writing for a Comedy Series
Will Win: “Thanksgiving” (Master of None)
Could Win: “B.A.N” ( Atlanta)
Directing for a Comedy Series
Will Win: “B.A.N.” (Atlanta)
Could Win: “Groundbreaking” (Veep)
