Emmys

Final predictions are ranked from most likely to win to least likely.

Last Update: 09/16/17

This is a tough year. The Handmaid’s Tale vs. This is Us vs. Westworld vs. The Crown vs. Stranger Things has to be one of the closest 4-way races the Drama Series category has seen in years. Any of them could win.

I based a lot of these picks on who won the early Emmys. So, in the end, I favored Veep, The Handmaid’s Tale, and This is Us in most categories.
