2016 Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Series

Will Win - Game of Thrones

Could Win - The Americans or Mr. Robot

Should Win - The Americans or Game of Thrones

Commentary - Game of Thrones had another monster of a season, cracking ratings, upping the game, and thoroughly engaged the viewers. They also were a smash at the Creative Arts Emmys racking up nine wins. It also upped its acting nominations, and will probably break its own record for total Emmy wins for one program in a single year. If anyone can take down the Emmy Goliath, I actually think it is the Emmy David. Mr. Robot had a shot, but it did not do as well across the board as I thought. In comparison, The Americans vastly over-performed and after being virtually ignored for three years, exploded onto the scene, claiming nominations in the top three Drama slots. I don't think it will happen, not in the populist system of voting that has taken over the second round. But it would be a spectacular upset to see.
