Updated Emmy Predictions – May

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.

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:

This may be our second to last Golden Globe Predictions unless something significant happens.

The HFPA recently stated that both “The Martian” and “Joy” would be considered comedies. Other notable activities included rejecting Rooney Mara and Alicia Vikander’s placement as “Supporting Actresses.”

We have made all of these updates. We have also done the Television categories. You can keep watch here to see if anything changes between now and the week before the nominations are announced.

Top 10: Television Shows on Right Now

Game-of-Thrones-584585Top 10: Television Shows on Right Now

I felt a little reluctant writing this up because I have not seen all of the great shows on TV today. So if your favorite isn’t on here, it’s not because I’m a “complete idiot.” It may just be because I haven’t seen it yet.

I’m watching somewhere between 20 and 30 shows that are currently still running. I thought about doing this as a top 5, but the top 10 are all fantastic and deserve recognition.

So here are the Top 10 Television Shows on Right Now:

house-of-cards-season-3-210. House of Cards

I got into “House of Cards” a little late and I never felt like I fully fell in love with it. Still, it is consistently tense and well-written.  It is currently on its third season, which was its weakest, however the show continues to educate us about the complex mannerisms of Washington as well as its anti-protagonist Frank Underwood.

SN: “The Last Man on Earth” Official Reaction Post

6128883_the-last-man-on-earth-season-2-premiere_5cb30714_mOfficial Reaction Post: “The Last Man on Earth”

Season 2, Episode 5: Now about Jason Sudekis’ character. Seriously hoping they at leasts touch on that again after focusing so much on it in the pilot. My theory still stands that Phil is actually the last living human on Earth and that the rest of the crew are Wilson balls. I don’t know how Sudekis fits in, maybe he doesn’t come in until the finale and snaps Phil out of it?

Season 2, Episode 4: It’ll be refreshing to get the group vs. Phil plot more narrowed down and to focus in on the dynamics between the rest of the characters. They’ve touched on it, feels like there can be more there.

Season 2, Episode 3: This show is hysterical. Episode 3 did what this show does better than any other show. Put us in brutally awkward positions where we become emotionally ambiguous. Don’t know whether to laugh or to cringe.

Season 2, Episode 2: What a randomly hilarious ending. Another great episode, even if Carol seeing that train was a stretch. Also Phil seems significantly less like a villain this season.

Season 2, Episode 1: Strong start. Will Forte and Kristen Schaal continue to nail everything, and we also got to see some impressive set pieces. The sheer grandeur of “The Last Man on Earth” separates it from any other television comedy on today.

Emmys: Final Predictions – 2015

Transparent-Recap-108Emmys: Final Predictions – 2015

On September 20th the 2015 Primetime Emmy award ceremony will begin.

It’s been about three or four years since I started predicting the Emmys, and it’s honestly one of the most difficult ones to predict.

Last night the Creative Arts Emmys were announced for all of the extraordinarily talented people behind the cameras. These are the best of the best, winning during this golden age of television.

Along with the technical awards, guest acting winners were announced, animated program, and TV Movie. We had finalized our predictions for those last night and you can see who won and how we did below.

For the main categories, Drama Series, Comedy Series, etc. It’s an all-out-brawl this year. Should be a lot of fun.

And if you’ve been visiting often, you may have noticed our poll in the sidebar. For the categories we polled we listed the current standings beneath. Voting will continue, however, right up until 2 days before the ceremony. The poll was for people’s personal picks, not their predictions.

Golden Globes: 2016 Television Predictions – September

fargo-season-2-trailerjpg-6457e3_1280wGolden Globes: 2016 Television Predictions – September

So many intriguing new Fall shows are about to start coming out, and before we know it, in December, we may be seeing some of them sneak their way into a couple Golden Globe nominations.

You have to kind of mirror the Emmys here, but the Golden Globes tend to take Television nominations in a different way. These predictions are real early, and predicting an “unseen” television show is twice as difficult as a movie.

We think that “Fargo,” “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” “Transparent” will all make welcome returns while newcomers such as “Empire” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” may break out. Meanwhile “American Horror Story: Hotel” will likely hold down many of the “Mini-Series and TV Movie” categories.

So here is our complete Television Predictions. We’ve also updated all of our Golden Globe movie predictions which can all be found here.
