Emmy Podcast #8: FINAL Winner Predictions feat. Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black, The Good Wife and True Detective

AwardsWatch-Emmy-podcast

Settle in folks, this Emmy winner prediction podcast clocks in at 2h 30m. I know, I know, but we tried! Emmy Experts Chris, Peter and myself dig deep into the TV/Miniseries categories (Fargo or The Normal Heart? Sherlock?!), Comedy (Will Orange is the New Black unseat Modern Family?) and Drama (an epic battle between Breaking Bad and True Detective). 

As per usual for AwardsWatch, the Lead Actress (Drama) category becomes a fight as Erik fights for his #1 placement of Robin Wright against the slings and arrows of Chris and Peter. 

So, grab a cocktail or go for a long drive for this epic podcast that you'll need to hear before the Emmys next Monday!

Emmy Podcast #6: Drama, Miniseries, TV Movie/Mini Lead, Writing Predictions

In this podcast Chris, Peter and Erik discuss the Emmy Drama categories in full (Series, Writing, Directing, Lead, Supporting and Guest Performances) as well as Miniseries and the Writing and Lead categories within the TV Movie/Miniseries section.

With so many categories up for grabs and a finite amount of nominations (or are there?) someone will be snubbed. Will former Best Drama Series winners Mad Men and Homeland lose their hold on nominations in favor of newbies True Detective and Masters of Sex? What about The Good Wife? Have they really blundered their campaign to return to a Drama Series nomination?

The Lead Actress in a Drama Series seems to be the category giving us (and most Emmy predictors) the most grief. With last year giving us seven nominees, will we see that again? Or will it be six with someone left off the list? We talk about Tatiana Maslany's chances, who's on the outs and was Scandal's Kerry Washington a one-and-done nomination.
