Emmy Predictions 2016: The Rest of Them, part 3

We’re just going to hurry down the home stretch here!

Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series

Who I Want to Win: UnREAL. I’ve never watched the show but it’s on Lifetime and have they ever been nominated for any Emmys before? It’s TIME!

Who Will Win: The Good Wife. Hopefully we can see Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi in person together. Fingers crossed!

Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special

Who I Want to Win: John Mulaney: The Comeback Kid. My brother and I used to see him perform in the back room of a bar every Thursday ten years ago and he has been one of the funniest guys around for at least that long.

Who Will Win: Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo

Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie or Dramatic Special

Who I Want to Win: One of the three The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story episodes nominated. Who ever came up with “If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit!” is the most brilliant writer alive!

Who Will Win: I could see Fargo taking this Emmy.

Outstanding Limited Series

Who I Want to Win: The Night Manager


I can see why Taylor Swift made Tom Hiddleston her fake boyfriend!

Who Will Win: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. While I really enjoyed this series, part of its draw was the nostalgia factor. I could see it taking the Emmy for sentimental reasons.

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie

Who I Want to Win: This is perhaps the most solid group of nominees in the entire Emmys. I loved Hugh Laurie as Richard Roper in The Night Manager and David Schwimmer was terrific as Robert Kardashian in the The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. But I’m going to go with Sterling K. Brown for his empathetic turn as Christopher Darden in The People.

Who Will Win: David Schwimmer. If they give to John Travolta as Robert Shapiro I will be disappointed!

Outstanding Variety Sketch Series

Who I Want to Win: Another solid category but I’m going with Portlandia. Would also be happy with a Key & Peele victory.

Who Will Win: Inside Amy Schumer

That’s all folks! Till next year!
