Emmy Nominees: Best Drama Series

My predictions: 7/7!

I got everything right here, not that it was much of a surprise. The Americans returned to the race for its final season along with nominations leader Game of Thrones, which picked up 22 bids, down from 24 its past two seasons. Though it didn’t manage a directing or writing bid, Westworld held strong with 21 nominations, down from 22 last year, while The Handmaid’s Tale jumped up from 13 to 20 nominations. Stranger Things, which aired such a long time ago, dropped from 19 to 12 nominations, while This Is Us dropped from 10 to 8. Rounding out the list is The Crown, holding steady at 13. This is a good list – the only one on here I don’t watch is “The Americans.” Out of the expected shows nipping at these seven’s heels, I’d say that “Ozark” and “Killing Eve” came closest.

Who should win? I have to watch “The Americans,” but otherwise I think I’d choose “Game of Thrones” or “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
Who will win? It’s hard to say. I was going to predict “This Is Us” but I think that The Handmaid’s Tale will repeat, or else “Game of Thrones” will.
