The 2016 Emmy Awards will air live on the Star network on Monday at 4:30 am and a repeat telecast at 8 pm. This is an exciting year for the awards with Game of Thrones being the popular choice to sweep most categories. Here are my predictions on who will take home the major trophies. Let’s see if I get them right on Monday!
Best Drama: Game of Thrones
It might be a cliche and if voters want to go against the popular opinion then they might ditch Game of Thrones, but there is no denying that it overshadows every other show in this category by a huge margin. While Mr Robot too has had a rock solid season, the jury would be blind to steal the victory from Game of Thrones.
Lead actor in drama: Rami Malek
If Matthew Rhys from The Americans doesn’t pull off a miracle then Rami Malek is a sure shot lock in this category. Mr Robot has worked because of this actor and it’s time he got his due!
Lead actress in a drama: Viola Davis
Claire Danes is a perennial Emmy favourite so it would be interesting to have some one else take the trophy this year. Viola Davis is a powerhouse of a performer and her act in How to Get Away With Murder is award worthy.
Best Comedy: Veep
Modern Family owns this category, but Veep has had a solid season and it seems like the writers and cast of this brilliant comedy deserves to take home the trophy this year. It took home the award last year and looks like it might repeat the same in 2016.
Leading Actor in a Comedy: Jeffrey Tambor
Transparent star Jeffery Tambor might get tough competition from Black-ish star Anthony Anderson, but the voters won’t be able to ignore the former’s acting chops. He should be able to take home this trophy once again this year.
Leading Actress in a Comedy: Julia Louis-Dreyfus
She is an absolute delight on Veep and is a sure lock intros category. With a solid season and her character making some daredevil moves and unpredictable choices, JLD is worthy of winning this category for sure.
Limited Series: The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story
Hands down a show that owned popular culture and became a huge talking point this year, The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story was not only entertaining but it also was hugely controversial and got every one sit up and take notice. In a category that is getting crowded and interesting, this show seems like a sure shot winner.
