Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Series

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Thursday, July 14th. As always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Louie, Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, Silicon Valley, Transparent, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Veep

The competition: Two of last year’s nominees aren’t eligible – “Louie” and “Parks and Recreation.” I don’t see any reason that the other five wouldn’t be nominated again, though Modern Family is actually most at risk of being left off since most feel that it’s lost some of what made it great. The likeliest to join them are two past nominees, The Big Bang Theory and Girls. There are some new possibilities, like Catrastrophe, Black-ish, Grace and Frankie, Master of None, and Mozart in the Jungle. The two that I’m rooting for most are Casual and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, though I can’t imagine that both will make the cut. I’d be ecstatic if You, Me, Her got nominated, but I’m not confident that will happen.

The predicted nominees: The Big Bang Theory, Girls, Modern Family, Silicon Valley, Transparent, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Veep

The predicted winner: Veep
