2017 Emmy Predictions In Every Category Before Sunday’s Ceremony

 

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

Limited Series

Will Win: Big Little Lies
Could Win: The Night Of
Dark Horse: Feud: Bette and Joan

Big Little Lies has the acclaim and has become a cultural phenomenon. But don’t count out The Night Of or Feud, the latter of which has a lot of star power behind it.

TV Movie

Will Win: Black Mirror: San Junerpino
Could Win: Wizard of Lies
Dark Horse: Sherlock: The Lying Detective

This is one of the weaker categories of the night, but Black Mirror feels like the popular pick. Though, Wizard of Lies does have more support through other categories.

Lead Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Will Win: Ewan McGregor, Fargo
Could Win: 
Riz Ahmed, The Night Of
Dark Horse: John Turturro, The Night Of

McGregor has gotten mixed reviews for his performance, however, much of the campaign surrounding him has to do with his dual-role. The Emmys love dual roles. That’s why I think he’s going to do it. However, both The Night Of guys are chomping at his heels. Ahmed is the more likely of the two to win.

Lead Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Will Win: Nicole Kidman, Big Little Lies
Could Win: Susan Sarandon or Jessica Lange, Feud: Bette and Joan
Dark Horse: Carrie Coon, Fargo

I think Sarandon and Lange cancel each other out. Under the old system of voting — voters used to rank the nominees — I think that one of them would have won. However, with the new popular vote system, it’s more likely that the two are going to draw votes from each other.

But why are the Witherspoon and Kidman not canceling each other out?

I think Kidman is the more clear choice between the two. Better role. Better material.

Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Will Win: Regina King, American Crime
Could Win: Laura Dern, Big Little Lies
Dark Horse: Judy Davis, Feud: Bette and Joan

This is the tightest race in the Limited Series or TV Movie categories. Dern’s show has a lot more buzz than the others in the category. But King has surprised for the last two years winning in shocking upsets. And with her best role to date, I think that she’s going to win her third.

Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or TV Movie

Will Win: Alexander Skarsgard, Big Little Lies
Could Win: Stanley Tucci, Feud: Bette and Joan
Dark Horse: Michael K. Williams, The Night Of

Skarsgard wants to win this. He’s been doing far more campaigning than his competitors and has the strength of his show behind him. If anyone takes him down, it’s one of the Feud actors with Tucci being the most likely.
