Few things have changed since our last Emmy Predictions. New shows like “Bloodline,” “Grace and Frankie,” “Better Call Saul,” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” have all been more widely considered in each category.
Also “Orange is the New Black” has officially been swapped over to the “Drama” categories. See how we have it fairing below:

House of Cards
The Good Wife
Better Call Saul
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.”
You wouldn’t think it, but there is a significant different in the mind of an Academy voter and a Hollywood Foreign Press voter. To end an excellent festival, “The Imitation Game” went home with the TIFF Audience Award. One of the runner-up films was “St. Vincent” another Weinstein film that should farewell in the comedy categories at the Globes.
We went ahead and updated everything, including television categories as we start seeking into a new Fall season for shows.
