HBO’s epic fantasy drama Game of Thrones once again leads the pack of contenders for the Primetime Emmy Awards, grabbing 23 nominations for its sixth season.
I used to make Emmy predictions with a combination of variables: who I think will win (based on previous Emmy awards shows) and who I hope will win (based on my personal taste and affection for a show or actor), with a little there’s-always-a-surprise mindfulness tossed in there. This year, I’m going out on a limb and, in these 10 most-important categories, I’m sticking with the shows and performers I really want to see holding an Emmy and making an acceptance speech on Sunday night. I’ll come back on Monday morning to let you know one of two things: That I was a brilliant success at predicting, or a dismal failure. Make sure you pick your own winners so we can compare notes.
