On September 20th the 2015 Primetime Emmy award ceremony will begin.
It’s been about three or four years since I started predicting the Emmys, and it’s honestly one of the most difficult ones to predict.
Last night the Creative Arts Emmys were announced for all of the extraordinarily talented people behind the cameras. These are the best of the best, winning during this golden age of television.
Along with the technical awards, guest acting winners were announced, animated program, and TV Movie. We had finalized our predictions for those last night and you can see who won and how we did below.
For the main categories, Drama Series, Comedy Series, etc. It’s an all-out-brawl this year. Should be a lot of fun.
And if you’ve been visiting often, you may have noticed our poll in the sidebar. For the categories we polled we listed the current standings beneath. Voting will continue, however, right up until 2 days before the ceremony. The poll was for people’s personal picks, not their predictions.

Current Poll Standings
Game of Thrones – 40%
Mad Men – 26.67%
Orange is the New Black – 16.67%
The next big award show is the Primetime Emmys. It is still very early to predict these accurately, but we think we are narrowing in on many categories.
The final season of “Mad Men” should cause a stir, while new shows like “Better Call Saul” and “The Last Man on Earth” could potentially breakthrough. Not to mention the return of “Game of Thrones,” “Mad Men,” and “Modern Family.”
