Emmy Nominees: Best Writing for a Comedy Series

My predictions: 3/6

So much for the witty construction of “Jane the Virgin” being honored – it seems like voters like The Last Man on Earth and its pilot better. Transparent being recognized for its pilot is enormously valid. Louie gets nominated every year for whatever episode it submits, which this year is “Bobby's House,” and the same holds true for one of my favorites, Episodes, contending this year for “Episode 409.” Silicon Valley got its season finale, “Two Days of the Condor,” recognized for the second year in a row. Veep also scored again here, with its season finale, “Election Night,” on the list.

Who should win? The “Transparent” pilot, “Episode 409,” or “Election Night”
Who will win? “Transparent”
