1.

With Veep sitting out this season, Atlanta has a great shot at taking it's first top prize.

2.

Wasn't the most prominent on the Guild circuit (though it likely premiered too late for many), but scored big when it won the all-important PGA award. To me, that makes Mrs. Maisel a lock.

3.

Nominated for the past four years, and the continues to do well with important guilds, and has HBO backing. Probably in.

4.

Will likely never win, but will continue to get nominated.

5.

An industry favorite that scored all of the required guild nominations. Likely in.

6.

Scored big noms at the SAG awards and the WGA, and Netflix will give it a hard push. While it could lose it's footing to another high profile Netflix series, GLOW looks like a strong contender.

7.



Other Possibilities


8.

I had originally included Arrested Development in my predictions; I had even written a very long section defending my position. In the end though, I just couldn't ignore the horrible buzz that this one's got. That NYT interview was just a killer; it probably could've beaten the Tambor stuff, but they just dug such a whole there that it'll be tough to make it out. It's still very possible, but it just doesn't feel all that likely now.

9.

Could pull off a surprise fourth nomination, but there's a lot going against it this time; it's premiering too late (two days before the eligibility deadline) with too few episodes (only six of the season's thirteen), and too many competitors, both new and old. It's also got stiff competition from it's own network; GLOW looks like the likeliest of nominees, and they've also got Arrested Development's hyped new season (AD is also releasing only half of it's new season, but eight episodes feels more like a full-boat than six does).

10.

Barry has been one of the best reviewed new series of 2018, but it'll be an uphill battle to make the cut this year. HBO's already got two other probably nominees here, both with multiple previous nods, and the show's tricky tonal balance will probably hurt it when compared to other, straight-up comedies.

11.

I was wrong last year, but I really can't see Modern Family pulling off another nomination. It's got no buzz, and there are just too many new contenders. It's still got a great shot at a nom (voters here are incredibly lazy), but I think it's time to let go.

1.

It won last year, and is still as zeitgeist-y as ever. While the reception to the show's second season hasn't been as rapturous as the first, there's no way this doesn't get nominated, and contend for its second straight win.

2.

Or will the two-time champ Game of Thrones take it's third? It's the biggest show on television; i.e. it'll probably be able to woo those that can't get down of Handmaid's brutality. The show's seventh season wasn't as well-received as past seasons though (granted, the show was able to win for it's fifth season; arguably its worst), so this'll likely be a very close race. Its a lock for a nomination, at least.

3.

Or will the hit series that makes us all ugly-cry sneak in for a surprise win? Its a lock for a nomination, and the recent SAG win suggests that this one has a lot of support in the industry.

4.

Not the favorite that it was for the first season, but it would be a shocker if Stranger Things missed out on a nomination.

5.

HBO's other massive hit is still critically acclaimed and thoroughly engrossing; likely a lock in this thin herd.

6.

It's British royalty, and a Netflix hit. It also had a better time with the guilds for it's second season; i.e. it's gaining support.

7.

This really is a thin year for the Drama category; there are really only seven or eight genuine contenders. As such, I'm going with the former nominee The Americans, in it's final season. It got bounced last year, though I would argue that that was more a result of so many hit freshman contenders than waning support.

Other Possibilities


8.

It's done surprisingly well in the run-up to the awards' ceremony, including a whopping five TCA nods. I still don't think that it could overtake that top seven, but it's probably in if the category goes to eight.

Best Limited Series

1.

There's no way that this will be the runaway smash the it's preceding season was, but Versace is probably the safest bet for a nomination in a rather wide-open field.

2.

It scored all of the necessary guild nominations, and Netflix will push hard for the nom. Probably safe.

3.

A high-profile about the lead-up to 9/11, The Looming Tower was greenlit with the assumption of awards. It didn't have the rapturous response the Hulu was likely expecting, but it's probably solid enough to make it in (though a win seems very unlikely).

4.

I've had a harder time picking the Twin Peaks revival than most pundits have. I don't believe that this is a lock, largely because it had no real support from industry guilds (Lynch couldn't even score a DGA nod after directing 18 episodes). However, this is soft a wide-open category this year that I could also see it making it in, and even winning. As it currently stands, I'm going with, at the very least, a nomination, but not at all a sure one.

5.

Something British to round things out then. Brit period pieces have always done well here, and this adaptation of E.M. Forster's classic novel was well-received. I see it as the shakiest of the predicted five, but the safest of the rest of the bunch.

Other Possibilities


6.

Can Showtime score two nominees (or will this usurp Twin Peaks and be their only nominee)? Patrick Melrose is really the only potential nominee that I could see jumping over Howards End and making the cut; the reviews have been strong, and the central acclaimed performance is so inseparable from the series that it may be able to ride on Cumberbatch's work. If there's six, it'll probably be in, but it doesn't look like the strongest bet at the moment.

7.

The reviews were mixed (and it genuinely seems that nobody remembers it), but the original was a hit here, and it's story of female empowerment might strike a cord in the #Time'sUp era.

8.

A hit that's sure to score a major acting contender, The Sinner could be a surprise nominee here. It's likely a long shot (it just doesn't have the "prestige" of the above seven), but it's a worthy contender.

Best Television Movie

People who added this item 677 Average listal rating (415 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.9

1.

Black Mirror took this category last year, and stands a great shot at taking it again. USS Callister was the best-reviewed of the bunch, and has more life than this category is accustomed to. It's a lock for a nom.

2.

Probably the only movie here that will contest Black Mirror for the prize; The Tale has HBO backing, great reviews, and a timely story (sexual assault). It's in.

3.

Reviews weren't great, but it's likely the "biggest" of the field, and the prestige factors that come with it (the leads, the Cannes premiere) should be enough to power it to the final five.

4.

The last of HBO's all-out assault; Paterno got solid reviews, tells a real story, and has Al Pacino in the lead. It's probably not winning, but it would be surprising to see it miss a nomination (especially in this year's field).

5.

It go solid reviews, and did surprisingly well with precursors (it won a WGA). Not a total lock, but the timely subject matter should help it stand out.

Other Possibilities


6.

A big long shot, but likely the only contender that could break into the final five.

Best Variety Series- Sketch

People who added this item 1115 Average listal rating (770 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 8.1

1.

Somehow, this category is weaker than last year. In any regard, SNL is the favorite.

2.

It's been nominated here for the last three years; it's not missing for it's final season.

3.

Also been here for the past three years; the depleted field makes this a lock.

4.

Scored a nod last year, with the slim field making it likely for it's second straight.

5.

I real guess, but this category is lite this year, and Sedaris seems like a likable enough presence to score a nod here.

6.

Another toss-up, but The President Show parodies Trump each week, which will probably sway many voters who want to promote his buffoonery.

Other Possibilities

Best Variety Series- Talk

1.

Lock.

2.

Lock.

3.

Probably in; he's been nominated for six straight years, and continuing to make headlines with his more earnest, genuine criticisms of the right.

4.

This category needs one down-the-middle late-night program, and I suspect it'll be The Late Late Show. Could miss, but I suspect it'll score it's third straight nod.

5.

The c*nt-gate controversy could certainly taint Bee's chances this year, but I think the overwhelmingly liberal voting-body will keep Full Frontal around for another nomination.

6.

The sixth spot is, in all honesty, likely to go to Real Time, but my gut keeps telling me that Maher's time here is running out. With that in mind; who would take over? My gut is saying that Meyer's series will score a surprise nod here. Late Night's humor has been pointed in the age of Trump, and has become one of the go-to shows for political humor. It's also on the Emmy's radar; it scored a writing nomination over several series that made the cut in this category last year. I'm not too sure that it's likely, but I'm going for it.

Other Possibilities


7.

It's scored 12 nominations in the last 13 years, and still seems fairly popular with the entertainment industry. His support has been waning over the last few years though, with his nomination last year a minor surprise, considering the n-word fiasco (he was even mocked at the show last year). Real Time is probably the favorite for the last spot, but I just don't think it'll happen this time.

1.

Donald Glover- Atlanta
Won last year, and is on fire this year. His diminished presence this season may hinder another win, but he's definitely getting nominated.

2.

Bill Hader- Barry
Most have him circling the fifth or six spot, but I see Hader's performance having enough strength to compete for a win. He's been nominated before (so he's got name recognition), and HBO is likely looking to getting a guy in here, as this has been one of the few categories they've had trouble cracking over the years (they've got one win, and #4 is the only man to consistently get in for the network).

3.

Anthony Anderson- Black-ish
He's been nominated here for three straight years, and the show continues to do well here. Should be a lock.

4.

Larry David- Curb Your Enthusiasm
He's been nominated here five times (five out the previous six seasons), and scored the all-important SAG nod; probably in.

5.

William H. Macy- Shameless
He keeps winning SAGs, and Showtime is very strong in this category. They love him; he'll probably be in.

6.

Eric McCormack- Will & Grace
There are several strong contenders for the sixth spot, but McCormack seems to be in the best position to take it. He was nominated for the original show four times (and won once), and I think voter nostalgia will help him in. The again, there are a few possibilities for voter nostalgia this time around...

Other Possibilities


7.

Jason Bateman- Arrested Development
Again, that NYT interview has put a real stink on the Season 5's chances, but Bateman seems to have be (mildly) forgiven for his part in it and, considering the breakdown Roseanne, the TV Academy voters may be willing to back him. He has a solid shot here, though I'm guessing he'll have a better shot for his other Netflix series.

8.

Zach Galifianakis- Baskets
He scored a nomination last year, and dual performances are like catnip for voters, but I see this year as been too crowded for him to make it last year (last year had maybe seven legit contenders, this year is more loaded). Still, a strong possibility.

9.

John Goodman- Roseanne
There are two scenarios at play here; the first being the TV Academy won't want anything to do with Roseanne. The second being that voters will pity some of the non-Barr cast, and give them some nominations. Goodman scored seven nominations for the original nine-season run, but I see the first scenario coming to fruition. There are already going to be Roseanne jokes at this year's ceremony; I don't think that voters are going to want to be associated with that heat.

10.

Matt LeBlanc- Episodes
He's been nominated for each of Episodes' previous four seasons, but this season seems a bit too crowded. The sixth spot doesn't seem to be a lock though, and Showtime has an exceptional track record for nominations here.

11.

1.

Elisabeth Moss- The Handmaid's Tale
Won last year, and looking like a strong bet to take another.

2.

Claire Foy- The Crown
She beat Moss at the SAGs, and the hubbub surrounding her not getting paid as much as her costar could give her the edge.

3.

Keri Russell- The Americans
She's made it in for the last to seasons, so it would be fairly surprising to see her miss for the much-hyped finale.

4.

Evan Rachel Wood- Westworld
Her character arc isn't as strong as it was last season, but Wood is likely in thanks to a less certain field (the top four were all nominated last year, so voters likely won't deviate too much) and more strong work (even with less material).

5.

Mandy Moore- This is Us
There are a few strong contenders for the last two spots, but I see Moore making the cut. She had a much stronger character arc in season 2, and This is Us has only gained support in the last year. No lock, but I'm optimistic.

6.

Laura Linney- Ozark
It's a crowded sixth spot, but my gut says Linney takes in. She's highly respected, has been nominated for pretty much all of her other TV work, and scored a SAG nod for her work here. She's no lock, but she's got a lot of the necessary precursors.

7.

Sandra Oh- Killing Eve
Last year, lead actor in a drama went to seven (and it's happened at least once for the past five years); this year, I see that category's female counterpart expanding. With that in mind, why am I taking such a long shot at #7? There seems to be some momentum building for Killing Eve and it's leads, and while Jodie Comer's performance may be the more eye-catching, Oh's been here before; she scored five nods for her work on Grey's Anatomy (and no wins). That visibility makes here the more likely of the two, and momentum often drives a few surprise noms.

Other Possibilities


8.

Emilia Clarke- Game of Thrones
She scored three nominations for her work in supporting actress, but she's untested here in lead. She's got a great shot, but a feel like she may have trouble transitioning here in a crowded field.

9.

Maggie Gyllenhaal- The Deuce
She's an exceedingly respected actress, and she earned raves for her work on The Deuce, but she missed the cut at the SAG awards, and the show feels like it came and went a decade ago, without much buzz. She's certainly got a shot, though.

10.

Viola Davis- How to Get Away with Murder
She won a few years ago, and has scored nods for the series' first three years, but I think most voters have forgotten about the series, or at least can't stack it up to the others in this category. Viola Davis is beloved, so she's always got a strong base, but I just don't see it this year.

11.

Claire Danes- Homeland
Another former winner that looks to get boxed out this time; Danes is a five-time nominee, and two-time winner, for Homeland, but she missed last year, and it feels like her time has passed here.

12.

Tatiana Maslany- Orphan Black
She won this category two years ago, but the break from eligibility last year likely made many forget about the show, and the fact the the final season aired last Summer doesn't help that. Her win was a surprise, so many one last nod will be two? Probably not.

1.

Darren Criss- The Assassination of Gianni Versace
American Crime Story is likely the favorite in miniseries, and Criss's gave a breakout turn in it. Not a lock to win, but likely the early frontrunner.

2.

Benedict Cumberbatch- Patrick Melrose
He's scored five nominations here, and he's doing some of his finest work in Patrick Melrose; Cumberbatch is in, and could play the spoiler.

3.

Al Pacino- Paterno
He's won here twice, and been nominated for all three HBO projects. If he could get a nod for the shitshow that was Phil Spector, then he can make it for the okay-ishly received Paterno.

4.

Kyle MacLachlan- Twin Peaks: The Return
After the top three, things get a little murky. There are about four or five guys going at three spots (maybe seven, though I'm not predicting that). Of them, MacLachlan seems like the most likey (though again, this could be a Twin Peaks miss). He was the anchor to the series, and was able to score for both seasons of the show's original run. Not a lock, but the nostalgia factor may work to his favor (also, the fact that he had many more hours than the above guys to work; 18 hours).

5.

Michael B. Jordan- Fahrenheit 451
I see Jordan making it in here on his name more than his project. 451 had an awfully cold response (reviews were rough), and his performance was only mildly-acclaimed (liked, but not loved), but he's having such an exceptional year coming off Black Panther (that's already scoring him Oscar buzz), and he's fairly well-liked (HBO backing always helps, too). Again, he may miss (the movie really wasn't liked), but I expect to see him nominated.

6.

Jeff Daniels- The Looming Tower
I'll take Daniels at #6; I think both he and The Looming Tower have enough momentum to push him in. It's an exceedingly close race, but my gut says he'll make it (he's a sure bet in another category though).

Other Possibilities


7.

Antonio Banderas- Genius: Picasso
Playing a historical figure is always a strong bet for awards consideration, and Banderas's performance has been acclaimed, but the reviews for Picasso weren't particularly kind, and there is no buzz for it. Geoffrey Rush was able to make it in last year for Genius, but the competition really wasn't as strong as it is this year (or, at least, there are just more options this time).

8.

Jesse Plemons- Black Mirror: USS Callister
Black Mirror won big last year, and is trying to add nominations to the three it scored last year. Of the acting possibilities, Plemons would seem like the most likely; he's been nominated before, he's very well-liked, and his performance is strong in a category where "good" seems to be the norm. While it may be a bit of a longshot for him to get nominated, I wouldn't be too surprised to see his name called, I'm just not certain that the TV Academy would have the guts to take the outside pick.

9.

Jared Harris- The Terror
Pretty much the same as the one above; the reviews were strong, but he doesn't seem to have that much momentum.

10.

Jack O'Connell- Godless

1.

Rachel Brosnahan- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
With Julia Louis-Dreyfus out the running, this category will have a new winner for the first time in seven years. Despite various returning contenders, newcomer Brosnahan looks to be the runaway favorite to take the prize.

2.

Allison Janney- Mom
She just won an Oscar, and has been nominated for every season of Mom; she's in.

3.

Tracee Ellis Ross- Black-ish
She's well-liked, on a likely nominated show, and is going on two straight nods; she's in.

4.

Lily Tomlin- Grace and Frankie
She's made it in for the past three years, and she's a legend; probably safe, though not quite a lock.

5.

Alison Brie- GLOW
She scored a SAG nod for the series, and the show went over exceptionally well with the actors' branch. While I can't say she's a lock, the precursors bode well for her chances.

6.

Pamela Adlon- Better Things
The last spot is a tough one to call, but my gut says it'll be Adlon. She made it in last year, is the creator-writer-director-star of the series, has FX backing, and has a general vibe that she's earn her place here. The Louis CK factor is the only thing that I'm really concerned about; the series was co-creator by the disgraced comic, and he wrote or co-wrote every episode of the show's second season (and 19 of the series' 20 episodes). Either they'll feel some sympathy towards her having to deal with this ordeal, or they'll want to get rid of the issue early and just not nominate her. I'm leaning towards the former, but I could see the latter coming too.

Other Possibilities


7.

Debra Messing- Will & Grace
She scored five nominations for the show in its original run, including winning once, but Messing has a stiffer category than her costars. This category is strong, and I'm just not sure that she'll be able to stand out from this pack. She's got a great shot though; there are a few spots here that aren't set, and this category could easily go to seven spots like last year.

8.

Ellie Kemper- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
She made the cut for the past two years, but this a strong category this year, and I'm not sure that the late-premiering series (with only six episodes) is going to be able to compete in some of the more competitive categories.

9.

Jane Fonda- Grace and Frankie
She made the cut, for the first time in the series three seasons, last year, and scored a very key SAG nod this year, but that was an expanded field last year (seven nominees; unlikely to occur twice in a row), and one not as competitive as this year. Could surprise, but I'm not seeing it.

10.

Issa Rae- Insecure
She missed last year, and coming back from a hyped season one miss is a tough prospect. However, she's HBO's only real contender here, so they are likely to through their full weight behind her. I don't think it'll be enough (the others have more heat this year), but don't be surprised to see her get the nod.

1.

Sterling K. Brown- This is Us
Won last year, and took SAG this year; he's a lock for a nomination, a looks like a strong bet for a repeat.

2.

Milo Ventimiglia- This is Us
He's a lock for a nomination (he made it in last year, the show still has a lot of love, and three of the seven nominated men from last year are out of the running), and could even have a shot at winning; he had an addiction storyline, and he died (voter catnip).

3.

Matthew Rhys- The Americans
He's scored a nod for the past two years, so it would be a real surprise to him miss for the final season; likely in.

4.

Jason Bateman- Ozark
Going back to the comedy section; it's still very possible that that NYT interview will hurt him, but I'd say that it's relation to Arrested Development hurts that's show's chances more than this one. Bateman scored a key SAG nod, and is one of the more notable newcomers here in a rather odd year for the category (three previous nominees out; numerous supporting players making the jump). I won't call him a lock, but his switch from Bluth shenanigans to Missouri crime should draw some attention. Also, Netflix backing doesn't hurt.

5.

Kit Harrington- Game of Thrones
This is where the category gets a bit wonky; the remaining contenders are a mix of late 2018-newcomers, supporting-to-lead jumpers, a previous nominees. In such a weird category, I'm probably playing it a bit too safe with Harrington, but I'm betting that the previous Supporting Actor Emmy nominee will ride a Thrones wave into the category.

6.

Jeffrey Wright- Westworld
Another previous supporting actor nominee; Wright is making the jump to lead after beyond nominated in the supporting category last year. Again, I'm playing it safe, but Wright is a previous winner (2004 for Angels in America and a respected character actor. As the catalyst, or at least framing device, of Westworld's most recent season, he has a greater impact on the season, and I think that'll go noticed.

Other Possibilities


7.

Freddie Highmore- The Good Doctor
Many have him predicted, but I'm not too sure that he can make it in. Broadcast networks haven't had the best record here for the past few years; in the last decade, broadcast networks haven't managed to get more than two nominees in this category, and with This is Us unlikely to lose a nominee here, it would be a pretty big coup for the big four networks to claim half of the nominees here. Also, that Golden Globe nod isn't the best indicator either; first-time nominees who don't score an accompanying SAG nod have a horrendous record for Emmy-crossover. This is a lot of bullshit stats to throw out at you, so let me be more concise; statistically, it would be an anomaly for him to get in here. Now, watch me be wrong.

8.

Liev Schreiber- Ray Donovan
He's been nominated for three straight years, and he's Showtime's only contender here, but I think Schreiber's time here is up. There are just too many competitors, and the show has absolutely no buzz. He could still surprise, but I'm not feeling it.

9.

J.K. Simmons- Counterpart
He's an exceptionally well-respected, Oscar-winning character actor, and his work on Counterpart received acclaim, but Starz is an unproven contender for Emmy consideration, and I'm not too sure that the series is on many voters' radars.

10.

Rami Malek- Mr. Robot
Can Malek make it back in after being snubbed for a post-win season? It seems unlikely; Mr. Robot's third season came and went with no buzz, and the competition just looks to strong.

11.

Ed Harris- Westworld
HBO made a major miscalculation when they submitted Harris for lead; had they kept him in supporting, they'd have had an easy nom. Here, he has a shot, but it seems like a big longshot.

1.

Laura Dern- The Tale
A late-emerging favorite; Dern's work in The Tale is getting some exceptional reviews. With timely subject matter, and a solid HBO push, it shouldn't take much for her to get in.

2.

Jessica Biel- The Sinner
Biel has been locked in for almost a year with her career-best work in The Sinner. It's more than likely going to go down to her and Dern for the win.

3.

Elisabeth Moss- Top of the Lake: China Girl
She was nominated for the series first season, and is a current favorite of Emmy voters; most likely in.

4.

Hayley Atwell- Howards End
In a category with this few legitimate options, Atwell locks damn-close to a lock. Her performance was acclaimed, and British literary period pieces usually do well here.

5.

Michelle Dockery- Godless
Another probable nominee, thanks to a solid performance, Netflix backing, and a dearth of legitimate contenders. Not a lock, but looking pretty likely.

6.

Cristin Milioti- Black Mirror: USS Callister
The #6 is really one that could go to a number of contenders; none seem to have all that much momentum. As such, I'll guess, and throw my support behind Milioti; Black Mirror is looking to grow support this year, following last year's wins, and this really looks to be the easiest category to score an acting nomination in. The subject matter of the episode is, as I've said many times, relatively timely, and her performance is strong (though, it could be said of most of the following contenders). This is a guess, but it seems like a more believable one than some of the upcoming.

Other Possibilities


7.

Regina King- Seven Seconds
While it's likely that few remember the cancelled Netflix series, King is a beloved figure at the Emmys; she was nominated thrice for her work on American Crime, winning two in a row. I think in a rather up in the air category like this, respect for her could sway a few voters to put her in.

8.

Sarah Paulson- American Horror Story: Cult
Another Emmy favorite contending in a rather thin field; Paulson's previous winner here, and has scored four previous nominations for her work on AHS. I just don't think she's going to score her fifth though; though seems to have passed it's Emmy prime, and few could really tell you much about the most recent season (aside from the fact that it was "political"). She's a solid possibility, but I'm not counting on it.

9.

Sarah Gadon- Alias Grace
Gadon did some exceptional work on Alias Grace, that could rightfully score her a nomination. Trouble is, she doesn't seem to have the momentum of the above contenders, and her series is flying under the radar. Netflix backing could get her in, but they've already got three other major contenders to campaign for; I'm guessing that she gets lost in the shuffle.

10.

Edie Falco- Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders
The series has absolutely no buzz, but Edie Falco has four Emmys, and her name recognition could propel her in.

1.

Peter Dinklage- Game of Thrones
He's won twice, and been nominated for every season of GOT thus far; lock.

2.

David Harbour- Stranger Things
Nominated last year, and score a SAG award nod this year; a continued strong presence in the series' second season makes him a (likely) like.

3.

Justin Hartley- This is Us
With the majority of last year's drama supporting actor nominees ineligible this year (including last year's The is Us nominee Ron Cephas Jones), we're going to see a more shaken up category this time. With that in mind, Hartley seems like the strongest bet of the new class; he had a stronger, more dramatic storyline in the series' second season, and his performance rose to the challenge. Not quite a lock, but looking very close to being one.

4.

Mandy Patinkin- Homeland
The only other holdover from last year; Patinkin is likely to score another nod thanks to the wide-open field at play here, and Showtime backing.

5.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau- Game of Thrones
After being passed over for several years (he probably should've scored a nod for the third season), Coster-Waldau has the best shot he's ever had at scoring a nomination here. The field is, as mentioned, wide-open, meaning that voters will either A) go bonkers and nominate some deserving underdogs that would've otherwise never had a shot, or B) toss one to a contender that's been hanging around for years. My guess is that he benefits from choice B, and for his presence as something close to the moral compass on this most recent season of GOT.

6.

Anthony Hopkins- Westworld
A last-minute addition to the race; Hopkins presence really does make things interesting. Most didn't expect that he'd be in enough episodes to facilitate a nod outside, maybe, Guest Actor, but HBO submitted him here, and upped Ed Harris and Jeffrey Wright to lead. There are a lot of contenders for this sixth spot (and even the fourth and fifth ones, too), but my gut says that the HBO backing, and Hopkins' name recognition will scored him his second nomination for the series.

Other Possibilities


7.

Matt Smith- The Crown
He's not the most likable character, but Prince Philip had more moments to stand out this season, and Smith rose to the challenge, even finding ways to make the character pitiable a times. The Crown was able to take this category last year, but John Lithgow had a bigger, much more Emmy-bait performance as Winston Churchill, and while Smith's work was strong, this category usually goes to either the biggest, most eye-catching, or most likable character. He's got a solid chance at a nomination, but I'm not quite sure that he can overcome the above six.

8.

Noah Schnapp- Stranger Things
Schnapp had an expanded presence in Stranger Things, which result in the young actor giving a breakout performance. While he's a solid contender, I think his young age will prove to be a hurdle compared to the older field, full of men that are more "due" than he is (as apposed to his costar Millie Bobby Brown, who was able to be the major breakout of it's inaugural season, and proved to integral to it's success to be snubbed).

9.

Brendan Fraser- Trust
While I'm not convinced that Trust can be any sort of major player, Fraser's work likely has a decent show. It's a comeback role for him, with his being the most singled out from the series, and his alleged sexual harassment by the head of the Golden Globes gives his presence a more timely-tint.

10.

Noah Emmerich- The Americans
His acclaimed performance could ride an Americans wave, but he's a serious underdog.

1.

Laura Dern- Twin Peaks: The Return
She's major contender for anything she does on TV anymore; likely a lock.

2.

Penelope Cruz- The Assassination of Gianni Versace
While the Versace were, arguably, the weakest aspect of this most recent American Crime Story, Cruz should ride the show's wave, and her own name recognition, to a nomination here, if not an eventual win.

3.

Nicole Kidman- Top of the Lake: China Girl
In a rather wonky looking year for this category, familiarity helps a lot. Kidman won last year, and has been racking up awards for Big Little Lies this year too; i.e. her notoriety should help her score a second straight nod.

4.

Angela Lansbury- Little Women
Fun fact: Angela Lansbury has been nominated for 18 Emmys, and never won one. That fact alone, as well as respect for her, make her a likely nominee here, and could finally even net her her first win.

5.

Merritt Wever- Godless
A previous winner, who also gave the shortest acceptance speech ever; Wever's no-nonsense gunslinger often stole the show in Godless. While I wouldn't call her a lock, the fact that she was a major part of the success of a likely series nominee makes her nomination probable.

6.

Judith Light- The Assassination of Gianni Versace
This category gets rather dicey after the top five (probably even the top four), but Light seems like a strong bet. She's been nominated for the past two years (though odds are her Transparent bid isn't getting a lot of traction given the show's current free-fall), and her work on ACS, while not the most expansive, was given a lot of praise. Not a lock, but I can see her here more than others.

Other Possibilities


7.

Ellen Burstyn- The Tale
She's Ellen Burstyn; she's always got a great shot at a nomination. The Tale is only growing is support, and HBO has only missed a nomination in this category once in the last 20 years. I'll probably kick myself if she gets in, but I'm just not feeling it with her the way I do with the top five.

8.

Naomi Watts- Twin Peaks: The Return
Another strong potential Twin Peaks nominee. If Dern wasn't in contention, I'd for sure have her in, but my gut is telling me that they're not going to give two spots to the weird character and performance styles found in The Return.

9.

Jennifer Jason Leigh- Patrick Melrose
While she did some excellent work on Patrick Melrose, Cumberbatch seems to have taken up so much of the conversation surrounding the show that I'm not sure whether Leigh can gain some momentum of her own. I'm guessing not.

10.

Elizabeth Debicki- The Tale


11.

Joanna Adler- The Assassination of Gianni Versace
A very outside the box pick, but Adler's superb work could get caught in a Versace wave, as well as a tendency to throw deserving character actors on the Emmy's part. Still, she's a very big longshot.

1.

Sean Hayes- Will & Grace
He was nominated for this award for seven of Will & Grace's first eight seasons (the only time he missed was for the first), and won once. He was also already nominated for a SAG award this year; i.e. it would be pretty stunning to see him get snubbed.

2.

Tituss Burgess- Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
While I'm not sure that Kimmy Schmidt will be able to make the cut anywhere else this year, I would find it surprising if Burgess missed. This isn't the most loaded category, and his continued standout work is hard to forget. Not a lock, but looking pretty solid.

3.

Louie Anderson- Baskets
As I mentioned above; this is a lighter category this year, and Anderson won this award just two years ago. I'm going to assume that they keep around for one more nomination.

4.

Brian Tyree Henry- Atlanta
While his first season bid was likely quashed due to a stacked field, this year's roster, while featuring some great work, is more open, and the show as well as his performance have received even more praise in it's second season. While I wouldn't call him a lock, the show's appeal and Henry's booming career over the past year should push him into the top six.

5.

Marc Maron- GLOW
While possibly considered a longshot when the series premiered last Summer, Maron racked up a considerable amount of nominations, including a very surprising SAG award nod. While that doesn't necessarily ensure him a nomination (he still is something of an obscure figure for this category), it does certainly bode well for his chances.

6.

Alec Baldwin- Saturday Night Live
He won last year, but I wouldn't consider him too safe this year, even for a nomination. Reviewers began to (somewhat) turn on his performance, and the visceral gut reaction of awarding someone for mocking the president doesn't have the same power the second time around (he was also in less episodes this time out). While I do think he'll likely make it in, he's not the lock that he was last year.

Other Possibilities


7.

Tony Shalhoub- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
A three-time winner with another high-profile role on TV; Shalhoub is a strong contender that could displace #5 or #6 with the right amount of momentum. While I don't quite see it happening, it would absolutely not be a surprise.

8.

Henry Winkler- Barry
Winkler's overly-confident acting teacher was one of the series' best comic creation, and stole several scenes. While he seems to be flying a bit under the radar, the acting veteran could easily sneak in.

9.

Ty Burrell- Modern Family
After two wins and eight straight nominations, I think there are just too many newcomers with momentum for Burrell to score his ninth nod. Still a contender, but looking unlikely this time.

10.

Lakeith Stanfield- Atlanta

Kumail Nanjiani- Silicon Valley

1.

Ann Dowd- The Handmaid's Tale
She won last year, and is still as respected as before; locked in.

2.

Thandie Newton- Westworld
Even if a few of the Westworld nods look a little in doubt, Newton isn't missing; she's still very much the series' standout.

3.

Millie Bobby Brown- Stranger Things
Another prominent season, and another SAG nod, make Brown a probable nominee.

4.

Lena Headey- Game of Thrones
While I don't see GOT being able to score anywhere near the three spots it scored here for it's last season, it would be a bit surprising to see Headey miss. She had scored three straight nominations before the break last year, and she's the most prominent contender for the series here this year. No quite a lock (this is a pretty strong category this time around), but a very strong contender.

5.

Chrissy Metz- This is Us
Another not-quite lock, but a probable nominee nonetheless. Metz scored a nod for the NBC hit last year, and continued to do strong work in it's second season. With more industry support for the series this year (that SAG ensemble nod bodes quite well), and consistently strong viewer responses, my guess is that the entire Pearson family score nods.

6.

Yvonne Strahovski- The Handmaid's Tale
While Alexis Bledel seems to be the more consensus Handmaid's pick for #6, my gut is telling me that Strahovski takes it instead. While she was strong in the series' first season, this season has, more or less, lived or died by her work. Her character has been given a lot more focus this season, and she's done some incredible work. While she's not quite a longshot, she doesn't seem to be a favorite to make it but, as mentioned, it would feel pretty wrong to trumpet the series this year and leave her out.

7.

Vanessa Kirby- The Crown
Last year, the male side of the drama acting categories got expanded to seven nominees each; this year, I'm anticipating that that will be flipped. In my expanded field, it really came down to Kirby and the woman at number #7, and I'm leaning towards Kirby. The Crown's second season will be her last and her Princess Margaret was given a bit more to do this season; i.e. she did strong work, and this is the last chance to give her credit.

Other Possibilities


8.

Alexis Bledel- The Handmaid's Tale
She's done some strong work in the show's second season, but she really hasn't had that much screentime. Unless that changes in the season's last four episodes, my instincts tell me that she won't be visible enough to standout in such a loaded category.

9.

Maisie Williams- Game of Thrones
Likely out, but she was nominated last season, and her character brassiness continues to please fans. Plus, HBO could put up a campaign blitz, and score more nods than expected.

1.

Jeff Daniels- Godless
He's already scored a SAG award nod for his work on Godless, and his villainous turn gave him plenty of room to chew scenery; he's a lock.

2.

Edgar Ramirez- The Assassination of Gianni Versace
While he really didn't do all that much on the series (the Versace stuff really was a drag on the season), awards-bodies love famous people playing famous people, so he's likely in.

3.

Michael Shannon- Fahrenheit 451
The movie got a pretty tepid response, but Shannon's work received praise, and he seems to be one of the most respected character actors working today. Not quite a lock, but a likely nominee.

4.

Michael Stuhlbarg- The Looming Tower
The Looming Tower has a lot of respected character actors eligible for a nod here; of that group, Stuhlbarg seems to be the most likely. He's an actor that many consider "due" for some sort of awards consideration, after being snubbed for an Oscar nomination this past year. Not a lock (there are three other guys from the show that are all under consideration), but looking somewhat solid at the moment.

5.

Bill Camp- The Looming Tower
Another ever-present character actor who's been accumulating respect over the years; Camp could score two straight nominations with his work in this series. He's got some name recognition, following a nomination in this category last year for his work on The Night Of, and he's responsible for some of this series' most memorable moments.

6.

Scoot McNairy- Godless
This is probably my riskiest acting prediction of the year, but my gut is saying that McNairy's redemptive arc in Godless will sway a few voters. He's a recognizable character actor with a strong arc in a well-liked miniseries; those types usually do well here. That said, there are a lot of opportunities, and I would advise against following me down the rabbit hole.

Other Possibilities


7.

Peter Sarsgaard- The Looming Tower
He's likely the most recognizable of The Looming Tower's supporting cast, but he doesn't get too much range to show in the series, and his character more or less disappears after a few episodes. He's still got a solid shot, but I'm just not feeling it.

8.

Brandon Victor Dixon- Jesus Christ Superstar
He was said to be a major standout on the musical special, but I'm just not sold on the idea of event-musical making much of an impression of this category; i.e. I'll believe it when I see it.

9.

Ricky Martin- The Assassination of Gianni Versace
His work was strong in the series', but he didn't leave a huge impact on the story. Strong, but slight (still has a shot though).

1.

Kate McKinnon- Saturday Night Live
Lock.

2.

Megan Mullally- Will & Grace
She was nominated for seven of the original run's eight seasons, and won twice (including for the final season). This is always a wonky category, so I wouldn't go in calling her a lock (only McKinnon takes that honor), but it would be very surprising if she didn't make the cut.

3.

Alex Borstein- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Borstein got to steal a lot of scenes in Mrs. Maisel, and her character, the hard-exterior comedy veteran, is endearing enough to sway a lot of voters. Looking semi-safe at the moment.

4.

Jessica Walter- Arrested Development
After that NYT interview, as well as the ongoing emphasis on impropriety in the workplace, Walter's chances have likely grown. Though she does some great work in the series' fifth season, my guess is that her experience on the set this season will likely propel her into the category.

5.

Leslie Jones- Saturday Night Live
She was nominated last year, and continued with the style of work that scored her a surprise nod. That's really all I need to put her in my final six (this category is, always, a mess).

6.

Rita Moreno- One Day at a Time
I missed predicting her last year, but this category is, seemingly, light, and she's a legend.

Other Possibilities


7.

Laurie Metcalf- Roseanne
She won three straight of these for the original Roseanne run, and is coming off of back-to-back Tony wins, and an Oscar nod. If the show hadn't been cancelled, she'd be a lock; now, I'm assuming that voters are going to want to stay very far away from it. She's got the best chance of the cast to get in, but I still don't see it.

8.

Betty Gilpin- GLOW
She had a breakout role in the series, but new series can be hit-or-miss here without a big swing of momentum. It just doesn't seem like she's quite got that momentum.

9.

Zazie Beetz- Atlanta
She had a breakout year (with both this and Deadpool 2), but she honestly probably could've competed in the Guest category this year; she was gone for long stretches of the season. Still, a decent contender.

2.

David Benioff & D. B. Weiss- Game of Thrones: "The Dragon and the Wolf"
Won this category twice in a row before the break; locked in for another nod.

3.

Bruce Miller- The Handmaid's Tale: "June"
Won last year; locked in for another nomination.

4.

Peter Morgan- The Crown: "Mystery Man"
After the first three, things get a bit difficult. Few of the newcomers that made it here last year had seasons that stacked up to the first; Stranger Things, Westworld, etc. Of the bunch though, I'd say The Crown will probably make it. It doesn't have the most hype, but it's British, and one person wrote the whole season (though he had co-writers on two if them). It helps that the submitted episode, "Mystery Man", is a rather writerly episode, and has a fight scene that is sure to be memorable. Nothing outside the top three are locks, but my gut says that The Crown has enough juice to make the cut.

5.

The Duffer Brothers- Stranger Things: "Chapter Nine: The Gate"
It set the world ablaze the way the first season did, but Stranger Things is still a hit, and "The Gate" was an episode that showed off why; sci-fi thrill and nostalgia pushed to the max. It made it in here last year, and this isn't usually a high-turnover category (though a few years ago was an anomaly; most of the shows in the category ended).

6.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge- Killing Eve: "Nice Face"
As with most fringe shows that have high critical acclaim, but seem a little too obscure for series taste, Killing Eve has a pretty strong shot at scoring a writing nom. It seems to riding a wave of momentum at the moment, and has enough goodwill, in strong part due to its writing, to snag a nod over likely series nominees. Waller-Bridge is also a rising star, whose growing in visibility; i.e. more people recognize her. Also, this category just can't be all male, and Waller-Bridge seems like the most likely woman to get in.

Other Possibilities


7.

Dan Fogelman- This Is Us: "Super Bowl Sunday"
If This is Us is going to be able to compete in drama series, it'll likely have to score a writing or directing nod, and this honestly seems like the show's best shot for that (more in a minute). "Super Bowl Sunday" was the show's biggest episode; both the most watched, and the most built-up. It's likely the most memorable of the season, and probably would be the one to break through here. While I'm not entirely sold on it's prospects here, I would not be surprised to see it make the cut.

8.

Jonathan Nolan & Lisa Joy- Westworld: "The Passenger"
Last year, the sseason finale managed to break through and score a nomination; if a Westworld episode were to crack through this time, it too would likely be the finale. Thing is though, the series submitted five of its 10 season 2 episodes for consideration; this hasn't been the most productive season (strong, but slow), and few of the episodes have really stood out. Plus, five episodes splits support, and makes it difficult for any one to shine. While it could certainly happen, they should've been smarter with their submissions.

9.

Carly Wray & Dan Dietz- Westworld: "Kiksuya"
"Kiksuya", told from the point of view of a character that had been used sparingly before, was a bold episode that paid off, with some of the most ambitious storytelling of the season. If there was any justice, this would be the Westworld nominee; as is, it a contender, but not a very likely one.

1.

Donald Glover- Atlanta: "Alligator Man"
Atlanta is probably scoring two nods here (they submitted three) and, of the submissions, "Alligator Man" seems to be the most likely. It's the least "niche" of the submitted episodes, and this one was written by Donald Glover, who is really riding a wave right now.

2.

Amy Sherman-Palladino- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: "Pilot"
Mrs. Maisel is this category's biggest newcomer, and Sherman-Palladino's funny, clever writing is a major part of that. Smartly, only the pilot was submitted; meaning that all of the support for the series will be consolidated towards the episode, and first episodes always earn a little more respect due to how well they set up the world of the show. A strong contender to take the prize.

3.

Alec Berg- Silicon Valley: "Fifty-One Percent"
Alec Berg will, likely, snag his annual Silicon Valley nomination here.

4.

Stephen Glover- Atlanta: "FUBU"
Both Glover brothers made the cut last year, and my gut is telling me that that trend will continue. It helps that "FUBU" is a distinct episode, heavily influenced by its storytelling.

5.

Alec Berg & Bill Hader- Barry: "Chapter One: Make Your Mark"
While "Chapter Seven" is the better, more shocking installment of Barry, "Chapter One" is the pilot, and is written by two Emmy favorites; Alec Berg and Bill Hader. While both episodes could end up making the cut, I think this one just has the better shot.

6.

David Crane & Jeffrey Klarik- Episodes: "Episode 7"
While I don't think many people actually remember the series (the show ended mid-last year, and hasn't been under Emmy consideration in three), I'm going out on a limp and predicting that the series scores one last writing nomination. Showtime is probably putting its full weight behind it, it's their only contender here, and the series score nominations here for its first four seasons. This is a out-on-a-limb guess, there are so many shows with more momentum, but it feels right to me.

Other Possibilities


7.

Liz Sarnoff- Barry: "Chapter Seven: Loud, Fast And Keep Going"
As mentioned, most see "Chapter Seven" as Barry's finest installment, but I'm not sure if it can take the show's writing slot this year, or get in of Episodes finale. It's got a very strong shot, but I just don't know.

8.

Stefani Robinson- Atlanta: "Barbershop"
Another strong installment for the series, but it would be quite the achievement to score more than two nods (of which only two series, Arrested Development and 30 Rock, have achieved in the 2000s), or for Robinson's work to get in over the Glover brothers, which I'm not sure she can (though I wouldn't be too surprised).

9.

Mike Schur- The Good Place: "Somewhere Else"
While I doubt that The Good Place could compete in any of the other categories, it might have a solid chance of sneaking in for writing; it's complex, exceedingly clever scripts are some of the most unique on television. Of the three submitted, "Somewhere Else" probably has the best shot; it's written by creator Mike Schur, who's been nominated here three times (twice for The Office, once for Parks & Recreation), and is a pretty well-respected figure.

10.

Mitchell Hurwitz- Arrested Development: "Everyone Gets Atrophy"
While it's unlikely that AD could score a nod this year, the fact that it scored five nominations in this category (and two wins), and only submitted one episode for consideration, means that it has a fighting chance.

Charlie Brooker and William Bridges- Black Mirror: USS Callister
Brooker won this last year, and stands a great chance to take another one.

2.

Jennifer Fox- The Tale
The Tale has picked up a great deal of acclaim due to Fox's storytelling; a story based on her own real-life experience of being raped at 13-years-old. The story on the page, and the one that inspired it, will likely get Fox in here, and may even propel her to victory.

3.

Tom Rob Smith- The Assassination of Gianni Versace: "House by the Lake"
Smith wrote the whole season, and the only other episode submitted was one he co-wrote; of the two, I think "House by the Lake" shows off Smith's writing abilities more, and is the more writer-focused. They might both make it in, but this one seems a bit more likely.

4.

Scott Frank- Godless
Writers who write the entirety of a miniseries do quite well here, and that is credit that can be applied to Frank. He wrote every episode, and the show looks to be a big contender this year; probably in.

5.

Kenneth Lonergan- Howards End
It's British; he's an Oscar winner; it's an adaptation of a literary classic. It's not a lock, but it's probably safe.

6.

Mark Frost & David Lynch- Twin Peaks: The Return
While it likely has a better chance in the other main creative craft category below, I'll take The Return at #6. People who write the entire series usually do well here, and Frost & Lynch composed one of the most macabre seasons of television in recent memory. It's the shakiest of the six, but I'd say it'll be in.

Other Possibilities


7.

Dan Futterman & Ali Selim- The Looming Tower: "9/11"
While The Looming Tower feels pretty locked in for a Limited Series nod and a few acting ones, I'm not too sure what impact it'll have on the creative categories. They've, smartly, only submitted one episode, with the title "9/11" no less; hard memories could shake voters into taking it for the title alone. At the same time, however, these categories are going to be tougher to get into than the aforementioned ones; it'll have to compete against not only it's limited series foes, but some very high-profile TV movies. With that in mind, I'm not sure that it has the momentum.

8.

Tom Rob Smith and Maggie Cohn- The Assassination of Gianni Versace: "Creator/Destroyer"
While "Creator/Destroyer" is a memorable episode, I'm not sure if it can score a nod over "House by the Lake" (because I really think that this category is too stacked for the series to nab two here); my gut says that they'll honor Smith's individual achievement (this was the only episode to have a co-writer; he wrote the whole season), more that his co-penned episode.

Kari Skogland- The Handmaid's Tale: "After"
The only reason that I'm less sure of Skogland's episode than Barker's is that his is the "bigger" episode (it's a little surprising that her episode wasn't "Baggage" or "Other Women"; safer and more likely episodes here). That said, she's likely one of the few women who have a shot here, and this show scored two nominations here last year. Not a lock, but I'm betting we see her nominated

6.

Matt Shakman- Game of Thrones: "The Spoils Of War"
Shakman's closing battle sequence is one of, if not, the finest in the series run, and anyone in their right minds would put him at the top of their ballots. Unfortunately, Emmy voters are rarely in their right minds, and will likely take established names like Podeswa and Taylor over Shakman (they didn't nominate "Hardhome"). While my gut says that he makes the cut, I could easily see his name being left off the final list.

Other Possibilities


7.

Lisa Joy- Westworld: "Riddle of the Sphinx"
Westworld is a big show; one that crosses multiple stories and timelines. Unfortunately, HBO's other big show is back with a vengeance this year; I'm guessing the Thrones takes a lot of the thunder away from Westworld, and voters will look elsewhere to fill out the rest of the category. If an episode were to get in, I'd go with "Riddle of the Sphinx"; it's co-creator Lisa Joy's submission, and it's one of the most notable a exceptionally crafted of the season.

8.

David Fincher- Mindhunter: "Episode 10"
While I doubt Mindhunter is going to get a lot of play this season, David Fincher is an extremely high-profile director. The first time he directed a TV series, House of Cards' pilot, he won this category. That said, big-time directors directing TV episodes isn't as unheard of as it was in 2013, and his name probably won't carry as much weight here as it once did.

9.

Stephen Daldry- The Crown: "Paterfamilias"
He made it in last year, but this category just looks too crowded for a restrained British drama (especially compared to the blockbusters that are likely to make the cut). Still, he was nominated last year, and the Emmys don't change things up all that often, and British dramas do very well here (Downton Abbey scored four nominations here). Still a viable contender.

10.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa- This is Us: "Super Bowl Sunday"
This is Us could make the jump into the directing category this year; it's appeal seems to be growing within the TV community, and "Super Bowl Sunday" was the biggest episode that they've done to date. It's got an uphill battle though; this category is stacked with blockbuster episodes, and it's been eight years since a big-four broadcast network has been able to get an episode nominated.

11.

Lesli Linka Glatter- Homeland: "Paean to the People"
Glatter's been nominated here four times for her work on Homeland, including consecutive nominations for the past three years. I think that this year is just going to be too tough though; Game of Thrones is back, Handmaid's Tale has got a lot of heat, and Stranger Things and Westworld are sci-fi epics. I'm not sure there's room for spy shenanigans this year.

12.

Mark Mylod- Game of Thrones: "The Queen's Justice"
The least likely GOT nominee, Mylod still has a mild shot at pulling off an upset nomination.

1.

David Lynch- Twin Peaks: The Return
Lynch directed all eighteen episodes of this bizarre epic; even if the series under-performs elsewhere, it would be a real stunner if Lynch isn't nominated, and the favorite to win.

2.

Ryan Murphy- The Assassination of Gianni Versace: "The Man Who Would Be Vogue"
Murphy has been nominated in this category for the past four years, and "Vogue" is the first episode of the series (i.e. it sets the tone). Probably a lock.

3.

Scott Frank- Godless
Another director for every episode; Frank directed all of the western epic, and has already received a DGA nod for his work. Not quite a lock, but probably safe.

4.

Jennifer Fox- The Tale
Again, Fox is telling her own exceeding emotional and traumatic story with this film, and I think that'll carry a lot of weight (plus, it's likely HBO's best shot to get in here).

5.

Matt Bomer- The Assassination of Gianni Versace: "Creator/Destroyer"
I feel pretty safe in predicting that Versace is probably getting two of its five submissions in. The first episode sets the tone for the series, so Murphy's submission feels close to a lock, so then the question becomes; who's the other? It's not a particularly simple call, because for all of the seasons storytelling fault, it was always an immaculately directed one. Of the other four, I'm leaning towards Bomer's "Creator/Destoyer"; he's got name recognition on his side, and his episode spans over multiple decades, telling a tragic and disturbing father-son relationship. Each of the others ("Manhunt", "A Random Killing", and "House By the Lake") all have some exceptional scenes, but, for all of the episodes storytelling issues, "Creator/Destroyer" is certainly memorable.

6.

Toby Haynes- Black Mirror: USS Callister
While I'm sure that it's going to do well in other fields, I'm not quite sold on directing yet. While "USS Callister" is, arguably, the biggest episode of Black Mirror to date, I'm just a little worried that the episode's successes will land straight on Brooker, not Haynes. I still think that he makes it in, but it's pretty close.

Other Possibilities


7.

David Leveaux and Alex Rudzinski- Jesus Christ Superstar
While I'm, as mentioned, not quite sure about this special's attempts to crossover into the limited series/movie categories, directing wouldn't be the most shocking surprise; these are big, live events that take a great deal of precision to work, and the directors are required to have a huge amount of control. The degree of difficulty, as well as the resounding success (it's been one of the best-received of the recent live-event craze), make this a very real potential spoiler.

8.

Craig Zisk- The Looming Tower: "9/11"
What I said in the writing category, mostly, applies here, with a few differences; instead of one episode, four have been submitted here, and while the direction was fine, it was always rather anonymous (the complicated story threads found in the writing were where the series did best). That said, the series is probably in for a limited series nod, and that'll put it towards the top of a lot of corresponding categories.

9.

Steven Soderbergh- Mosaic
I'm not too sure that many will remember this one enough to include it in their ballots, but I am sure that Soderbergh's name carries a fair amount of weight at the Emmys; he won this category five years ago for Behind the Candelabra, and was nominated for both seasons of his Cinemax series The Knick. Ultimately, I don't see him making it in, but color me unsurprised if he does.

1.

James Burrows- Will & Grace: "Rosario's Quinceanera"
Burrows was likely getting nominated already, but the new rule that requires at least one multi-camera nominee makes his nomination a near certainty. He was nominated 6 times for his work on Will & Grace, and he is the most nominated director in this category ever with 25 nominations (he's also won the most with five). While I doubt he'll win, it would be a surprise if he wasn't nominated.

2.

Donald Glover- Atlanta: "FUBU"
Glover won this category last year, and should, at the very least, score a nod for his work on "FUBU".

3.

Hiro Murai- Atlanta: "Teddy Perkins"
"Teddy Perkins" was one of the most discussed and dissected episodes of the year, and an example of Murai's talent as a filmmaker; turning every scene into an unsettling nightmare that builds to an exceptional dark ending. It's no the funniest episode of the season, but it's certainly one of the best directed.

4.

Mike Judge- Silicon Valley: "Initial Coin Offering"
Judge will likely pick up his annual nomination here, though I wouldn't consider him as locked in as he usually is (Silicon Valley really had very little buzz this season).

5.

Amy Sherman-Palladino- The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: "Pilot"
It's rare that a major contender for the top prize misses a director nomination, and Mrs. Maisel is running pretty close at the top of this category. Sherman-Palladino's fast-paced, period comedy pilot has a lot of work to do, but her direction is exceptionally smooth, moving from plot point to plot point with extreme efficiency. She's already scored a DGA nod, my gut says she scores an Emmy one too.

6.

Robert B. Weide- Curb Your Enthusiasm: "Never Wait for Seconds!"
Curb has received 10 nominations here over the course of its nine seasons, winning once, and Weide is the most nominated director from the show, and the only winner; i.e. if it's going to get a nominee in here, it'll probably be him. HBO has been stunningly strong in this category over the past two years, scoring ten of the thirteen nominations, and the series has been over-performing at the guild awards (though it did not get a nomination from the DGA). While I'm a little shaky about it's prospects, its a tough category and the series only picked up one nomination here for its it's previous three seasons, my gut is telling me that it'll squeak in.


Other Possibilities


7.

Alec Berg- Barry: "Chapter Eight: Know The Truth"
Again; Berg is a very well-respected figure in the comedy world, and he was nominated here for Silicon Valley just two years ago. It's a crowded category, but he could easily take that sixth spot (or this category could go to seven again).

8.

Jesse Peretz- GLOW: "Pilot"
GLOW's wrestling choreography and period setting would likely make this a lock had the right episodes been submitted; as is, the pilot is a strong contender, but had the finale been submitted, I probably would've put in my final six.

9.

Bill Hader- Barry: "Chapter One: Make Your Mark"
Pilots usually do well, and Hader seems pretty well-liked, but Barry's best bet is likely above, and there are a lot of contenders this year.

10.

Jamie Babbit- Silicon Valley: "Chief Operating Officer"
