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
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!
