Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Series

The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, July 13th. As always, chime in below in the comments with any thoughts of your own.

Last year’s nominees: Better Call Saul, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, Killing Eve, The Mandalorian, Ozark, Stranger Things, Succession

The competition I wrote about this category for The Film Experience about six weeks ago. Since then, Lovecraft Country has been cancelled, but it’s important to note that it happened after voting was already closed, so it shouldn’t matter as much as it would have had it happened a few weeks earlier. I may have overestimated the chances of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but I don’t feel good enough about including a show I really like, Pose, and one whose pilot I didn’t like enough to keep watching, The Boys, in its place, so I’ll keep my list the same for now, though I’m worried that I may be way off on half of it.

The predicted nominees: Bridgerton, The Crown, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, The Handmaid’s Tale, Lovecraft Country, The Mandalorian, Perry Mason, This Is Us

The predicted winner: This will be the year The Crown finally triumphs barring a true surprise.
