In case you haven’t heard, the Emmys are this Sunday. So the we’ve got a list of predictions for who will win in the seven major categories. Lynn Elber who covers all things TV for the American Press, has his list of who he thinks will – and should – emerge victorious. See if you agree:
Will win: The Crown. It’s not just that Hollywood is filled with Anglophiles, although that’s one reason the lavish story of young Queen Elizabeth will win. Emmy voters also adore epic sweep (see previous winner Game of Thrones) and this has it.
Will win: Veep. Comedies keep winning streaks going, and with just two Emmys so far, it’s far behind the five top comedy trophies each that Modern Family and Frasier collected.
Will win: Brown. His winning turn last year as determined O.J. Simpson prosecutor Christopher Darden shows his versatility. Emmy voters get it.
Will win: Claire Foy (The Crown). A lovely and delicate turn, and playing British queens on the big screen worked for Oscar-winners Judi Dench and Helen Mirren, the latter also nabbing an Emmy for the miniseries Queen Elizabeth I.
Will win: Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent). He’s brilliant, he’s won twice before and his transgender role makes a deeply affecting statement.
Will win: Louis-Dreyfus (Veep). She is undeniably sublime, and it was announced that next season will be the political satire’s last. So, no stinting!
