Emmys: Final Emmy Nomination Predictions – 2015
These are our final predictions for the 67th Annual Primetime Emmy nominations. Nominations will be announced on July 16th.
Each category ranks contenders by most likely to be nominated. We went ahead and did all acting categories (including guest acting). All TV Movie and Limited Series categories are included, and we just did the front-runners for the directing/writing categories.
Let us know your predictions! And check our our Emmys page for updated changes after the nominations are announced.
Television Series – Drama
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
The Good Wife
Orange is the New Black
The award season is underway and precursors are flooding in. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s chosen nominations will be announced on Thursday December 11th.
On the film side of things we expect “Boyhood” and “Birdman” to get a lot of attention. “The Imitation Game,” “Selma,” “Gone Girl,” and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” should make some appearances too.
On the television side of things “True Detective,” “House of Cards,” and “Modern Family” should all easily show up. “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife,” “Downton Abbey,” “Fargo, ” “Orange is the New Black,” and “The Big Bang Theory” are all strong possibilities in multiple categories as well.
Here are our chosen for each category. Click the “More” link to see alternates/dark horses in that category as well.
Motion Picture – Drama
The Imitation Game
Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Into the Woods
Allison Tohman, Fargo
Julia Roberts, The Normal Heart
Kathy Bates, American Horror Story: Coven
Ellen Burstyn, Flowers in the Attic
Angela Basset, American Horror Story: Coven
Frances Conroy, American Horror Story: Coven
Last Update: 08/06/14
Julia Roberts is a fan favorite in a TV Movie that will easily pick up the “TV Movie” Emmy. But her role isn’t performed as impressively as the heroine of “Fargo.” It’s neck and neck, but I’d give the edge to Tohman.

Awards: Final Golden Globe Predictions
One of the most widely acknowledged awards shows will announce its nominees 5:15am PT/8:15am ET. After what we have seen with the Screen Actors Guild nominees you should be expecting attention from “The Butler,” “Enough Said,” and “August: Osage County.” Among the usual front-runners.
After tomorrow the Golden Globes Page will only predict winners of the categories and we’ll see how we did.
So here are the Final Golden Globe Predictions: (more…)
Awards: SAG Predictions
The Screen Actors Guild awards can be a little bit difficult to predict. They happen early in the year where it is hard to tell which December films SAG has seen and hasn’t seen. For example “Django Unchained” got nothing last year, because not one had seen it yet. Even though it had a very strong acting ensemble.
This year “The Wolf of Wall Street” has reportedly screened for the nominating committee, but what about the members? It is likely “The Wolf of Wall Street” won’t go anywhere here, but I’m going to take that road and say that it will get some attention (But I won’t completely fall for it here).
So here are my final locked-in predictions for SAG (with my runner-up choices):
Julia Roberts, The Normal Heart
Allison Janney, Mom
Kate Mulgrew, Orange is the New Black
Kathy Bates, American Horror Story: Freak Show
Allison Tolman, Fargo
