Emmy 2015 Predictions

Outstanding Drama Series

Better Call Saul (AMC)
Downton Abbey (PBS)
Game of Thrones (HBO)
Homeland (Showtime)
House of Cards (Netflix)
Mad Men (AMC)
Orange Is the New Black (Netflix)

Homeland regained critical acclaim after a post season one slump, the sophomore seasons for the Netflix dramas are seen as the best for both shows, yet it looks like Mad Men will win the award for the fifth and final time, making it a record in the category (Mad Men currently shares the title for most wins with Hill Street Blues, L.A. Law, and The West Wing).

Outstanding Comedy Series

Louie (FX)
Modern Family (ABC)
Parks and Recreation (NBC)
Silicon Valley (HBO)
Transparent (Amazon)
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Netflix)
Veep (HBO)

I’m a big Modern Family fan but please can they stop winning this award. While the show is still a good watch, it is nowhere near the early years when it also took out Outstanding Comedy. I think it could be Kimmy Schmidt, but I could easily be wrong. There are so many strong contenders here. Veep and Transparent are contenders, and I would love for Parks to win, but the chances are slim.

Lead Actor in a Drama – Jon Hamm (Mad Men)
Lead Actress in a Drama – Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder)
Supporting Actor in a Drama – Jonathan Banks (Better Call Saul)
Supporting Actress in a Drama – Uzo Aduba (Orange Is the New Black)

Lead Actor in a Comedy – Jeffery Tambor (Transparent)
Lead Actress in a Comedy – Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep)
Supporting Actor in a Comedy – Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)
Supporting Actress in a Comedy – Jan Krakowski (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)

Logies 2015 Predictions

Gold Logie
Should Win: Carrie Bickmore // Will Win: Asher Keddie
Look I may be totally wrong, as this vote could go anywhere, but this will be Asher’s last chance to win for Offspring ( we assume the show won’t be coming back), and the channel Ten drama has a loyal and vocal fan base. That being said, I hope it can be Carrie to win. This is her fourth time nominated, so if the “lads” at channel Nine don’t get in her way, maybe she will have a shot at it.

Most Popular Actor
Should Win: Luke Arnold // Will Win: Chris Lilley
There is one actor here who is head and shoulders ahead of the pack, and that is Luke Arnold. His portrayal of INXS frontman Michael Hutchence was simply amazing. Unfortunately this award will be decided by the readers of TV Week, meaning we could see a repeat of last year. The undeserving Chris Lilly may take it home again.

Most Popular Actress
Should Win & Will Win: Asher Keddie
While Jessica Marais and Mandy McElhinney would both be deserving to win this one for their work on Love Child (Marais also recognised for Carlotta), Asher has a dedicated fan base and has won this award the last four years. This ones a safe bet.
