Emmy Nominations Predictions 2019

Paul Mendoza

The Emmy nominations will be announced Tuesday morning and there will be lots of anticipation to see if the reaction to the last season of Game Of Thrones will hurt it’s chances to get nominated let alone win the Best Drama category. There may be an opening for another worthy show to snag victory away from what was once considered the sure thing. Here are my picks for the Drama categories.

BEST DRAMA

BETTER CALL SAUL

THE BODYGUARD

GAME OF THRONES

OZARK

SUCCESSION

THIS IS US

There are a lot of options this year but this seems to be a solid list. Other options could be Pose, Homecoming, and Billions

BEST ACTOR DRAMA

Jason Bateman         Ozark

Sterling K. Brown     This Is Us

Paul Giametti            Billions

Richard Madden       The Bodyguard

Bob Odenkirk           Better Call Saul

Billy Porter                Pose

Milo Ventigmilia      This Is Us

I don’t think Kit Harrington makes the cut this year but if he does then thats a good sign for Game of Thrones.

BEST ACTRESS DRAMA

Christine Baranski        The Good Fight

Emilia Clarke                Game Of Thrones

Jodie Comer                 Killing Eve

Maggie Gyllenhaal      The Deuce

Suanne Jones              Gentleman Jack

Laura Linney               Ozark

Sandra Oh                   Killing Eve

Does Maggie Gyllenhaal have a chance in hell to get nominated? No. The Emmys hate David Simon shows but she deserves a nomination.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR DRAMA

Jonathan Banks        Better Call Saul

David Constable        Billions

Nicholas Coster Waldau      Game Of Thrones

Kieran Culkin            Succession

Asia Kate Dillon        Billions

Peter Dinklage          Game Of Thrones

If David Constable doesn’t get a nomination for playing Wags in Billions there is no justice in this world!

BEST SUPPORTING ACRESS DRAMA

Gwendoline Christie    Game Of Thrones

Julia Garner                   Ozark

Susan Klechi Watson   This Is Us

Rhea Seehorn               Better Call Saul

Sophie Turner              Game Of Thrones

Maisie Williams           Game Of Thrones

Sophie Turner and Gwendolyn Christie deserve season ending noms but Maisie deserves the Emmy

I’m very excited to see the nominations for Best Limited Series as well.  There is an over abundance of quality programs to nominate, Chernobyl, Fosse/Verdon, Sharp Objects, Escape At Dannemora, I’lll be up bright and early to watch all the nominations gets announced!
