Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Series

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 16th. Please refer to my Emmy musings for this category for a detailed analysis of the contenders, and, as always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: The Big Bang Theory, Louie, Modern Family, Orange is the New Black, Silicon Valley, Veep

The competition: “Orange is the New Black” is being transplanted to the drama race, which leaves two spots open since the category has now been expanded to include seven nominees. Conventional wisdom says Transparent and Jane the Virgin should take them, but Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is nipping at their heels. Grace and Frankie and Black-ish will get some votes, as could never-nominated Shameless or past nominees Nurse Jackie or Girls. And wouldn't it be great if Parks and Recreation got recognized for an incredible final season?

The predicted nominees: The Big Bang Theory, Jane the Virgin, Louie, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, Transparent, Veep

The predicted winner: “Transparent”
