American Crime Story raped the EMMYS this award season, Game of Thrones had a pretty much every character nominated, and this may be the best and most successful year for limited series' EVER! Wahoo! What a great year for television! These are my Emmy predictions on the categories that anyone actually gives a shit about.
Who SHOULD win
Who WILL win
Who WILL win that SHOULD!!!!
GAME OF THRONES!!!
Lead actor in a drama:
Kyle Chandler, “Bloodline”
Rami Malek, “Mr. Robot”
Bob Odenkirk, “Better Call Saul”
Matthew Rhys, “The Americans”
Liev Schreiber, “Ray Donovan”
Kevin Spacey, “House of Cards”
Kevin Spacey is da shit and should win awards for being born.
Lead actress in a drama:
Claire Danes, “Homeland”
Viola Davis, “How to Get Away With Murder”
Taraji P. Henson, “Empire”
Tatiana Maslany, “Orphan Black”
Keri Russell, “The Americans”
Robin Wright, “House of Cards"
Tatiana Maslany plays like 700 clones in Orphan Black AND is convincing. What other role is possibly that fucking demanding?! HTGAWM sucked this season and Robin Wright plays the most apathetic character on television.
Lead actor in a limited series:
Bryan Cranston, “All the Way”
Benedict Cumberbatch, “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride”
Idris Elba, “Luther”
Cuba Gooding Jr., “The People vs. O.J. Simpson”
Tom Hiddleston, “The Night Manager”
Courtney B. Vance, “The People vs. O.J. Simpson”
I have no fucking clue who will win in this category. I have literally no complaints. Everyone nominated deserves it. Ugh. I'm just impartial to Tom HiddleBABE. Luv him. This one's a TOSS UP!!
Lead actress in a limited series:
Kirsten Dunst, “Fargo”
Felicity Huffman, “American Crime”
Audra McDonald, “Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grille”
Sarah Paulson, “The People v. O.J. Simpson”
Lili Taylor, “American Crime”
Kerry Washington, “Confirmation”
Sarah Paulson kills it at everything--except dating. She nasty. She's dating Elle Wood's teacher/Charlie Sheen's mom on Two and a Half Men. She's like 70. Sarah is half her age. EW.
Lead actor in a comedy:
Anthony Anderson, “black-ish”
Aziz Ansari, “Master of None” | Interview
Will Forte, “Last Man on Earth” | Video
William H. Macy, “Shameless”
Thomas Middleditch, “Silicon Valley”
Jeffrey Tambor, “Transparent”
Silicon Valley is the shit. I love it a lot. Shameless gets worse each season, and I'm not into Master of None but I love Aziz. IDK Jeffrey Tambor plays a tranny and EMMY voters love that shit.
Lead actress in a comedy:
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, “Veep”
Ellie Kemper, “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"
Tracee Ellis Ross, “black-ish”
Laurie Metcalf, “Getting On”
Amy Schumer, “Inside Amy Schumer”
Lily Tomlin, “Grace and Frankie”
Julia wins every year and should because she is funny and cute. I love Amy, but I don't think she'll beat out the Seinfeld sweetheart.
“Master of None”
“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”
MODERN FAMILY WINS EVERY YEAR. WHY? :(
“Better Call Saul”
“Game of Thrones”
“House of Cards”
THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES THRONES.

“The Night Manager"
“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”

Maura Tierney, “The Affair”
Maggie Smith, “Downton Abbey”

Emilia Clarke, “Game of Thrones”
Maisie Williams, “Game of Thrones”
Constance Zimmer, “UnREAL”
This was very hard for me. Maisie was nominated for her first award and it is so deserved because she is amazing ah. I just hate Cersei so much and I feel that has to be a testament to how talented Lena is. Emilia is fine. Not the winner though.

Melissa Leo, “All The Way”
Regina King, “American Crime”
Sarah Paulson, “American Horror Story: Hotel”

Margo Martindale, “The Americans"
Carrie Preston, “The Good Wife”
Laurie Metcalf, “Horace and Pete”
Ellen Burstyn, “House of Cards”
Molly Parker, “House of Cards”

As I watched this season of House of Cards, I said to myself, "Ellen Burstyn will win every award for her performance."
