Mike’s Emmy Predictions For This Weekend
Hey everybody, the Emmys are this weekend!
I know less and less people watch these awards ceremonies every year, but I still have a blast with them - I don't really care who wins, I just like seeing an art form that I love get celebrated. Plus, it's fun to argue about, so there's that.
The Emmys honor the best of television, and while there's been some picks I've wildly disagreed with over the years, I can't deny that I still tune in to see what happens every year. (Except for that one year where they stupidly programmed the Emmys at the same time as the second-to-last episode of Breaking Bad was premiering - like, come on guys, know your audience).
So, here's some of the big categories, and who I think is going to take it on Sunday night.
Outstanding Drama Series
Will win: Game of Thrones
Should win: Better Call Saul
Outstanding Comedy Series
Will Win: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Should Win: Veep
Outstanding Lead Actor, Drama
Will Win: Jason Bateman, Ozark
Should Win: Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul
Outstanding Lead Actress, Drama
Will Win: Sandra Oh, Killing Eve
Should Win: (I haven't seen most of the shows in this category, but Sandra Oh seems really good, let's give it to her)
Outstanding Lead Actor, Comedy
Will Win: Bill Hader, Barry
Should Win: Bill Hader, Barry - but if not him, Ted Danson for The Good Place
Outstanding Lead Actress, Comedy
Will Win: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
Should Win: Have you SEEN Veep? Give Julia Louis-Dreyfus all the Emmys.
So that's just a few of the categories, but there's plenty more - who do you think will take home the Emmy this year?
