Updated Emmy Predictions – May

The People v. OJ Simpson is the talk of Emmy prognosticators every where. It is surely to score many nominations, whether or not HBO’s “All the Way” knocks it out of a few victories is another story.

HBO isn’t just doing great in the Limited Series/TV Movie categories. We have it in first for drama with the return of “Game of Thrones” and 2 of their shows atop the comedy list – “Veep” and “Silicon Valley.”

Check out the predictions below and keep in touch with our Emmy page for updated predictions.
