2017 Emmy Predictions In Every Category Before Sunday’s Ceremony

 

The Emmys are this Sunday! So, we made our predictions in every category.

Comedy Series

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)
