Will Win - The Normal Heart
Should Win - The Normal Heart
Could Win - The Trip to Bountiful or Sherlock: His Last Vow
Commentary - There are some nice contenders here, but really they all should just be happy to be nominated. This year Ryan Murphy's adaptation of the Tony-winning play The Normal Heart is set to sweep so many categories across the board. It is a huge production, with an all-star cast (that could take a few Emmys with it as well), a popular Emmy-winning director, and has HBO behind it, something that really helps when it comes to winning these long-form Emmy awards. I know this post is short and sweet, but honestly there is not much else to say other than this: if anything other than The Normal Heart wins, I will be absolutely shocked.
