2016 Emmy Predictions – February

American_Crime_Story_Screenshot_600_by_4002016 Emmy Predictions – February

It was about time that I got these done! But even with the 2016 Emmys only a little over half a year away every thing is still fairly blurry, especially the Limited Series/TV Movie categories.

Unlike the Golden Globes, the Emmys aren’t really compelled to go with new series, it’s actually quite rare for a new series to join the club off its first season. So a lot of these predictions are naturally within the comfort zone of the Academy.

Here they are and visit our page for updated predictions:
