We continue our picks for which show will take home the prize for best Drama, Comedy and Miniseries this Sunday at the Primetime Emmy Awards!
Breaking Bad, AMC
Downton Abbey, PBS
Game of Thrones, HBO
House of Cards, Netflix
Mad Men, AMC
The Laurene pick: Toss-up between Breaking Bad and Homeland. As an avid fan of Breaking Bad, I am leaning more toward Breaking Bad.
MJP pick: Homeland… Everyone loves every show in this category (I don’t watch most of them, sorry!) but season 2 of Homeland was stellar. Even more shocks and jolts and drama than the first… That showdown between Carrie and Abu Nazir was gripping! House of Cards, a very well-made and intriguing show, is a close second.
Funmi pick: Breaking Bad. Hands down.
The Big Bang Theory, CBS
Modern Family, ABC
30 Rock, NBC
The Laurene pick: I feel like this category could take everyone by surprise. It could be the year Louie wins, but I think it also could go to Veep.
MJP pick: I love Veep but I think this will go to 30 Rock. Not only was it an absolutely hilarious and wacky show, but many loved it, it’s an awards show favorite, and I think voters will want to give it one last award.
Funmi pick: The Big Band Theory. It really is the best comedy on TV right now.
American Horror Story: Asylum, FX
Behind the Candelabra, HBO
Phil Spector, HBO
Political Animals, USA
The Bible, History
Top of the Lake, Sundance Channel
The Laurene pick: Behind the Candelabra or Top of the Lake.
MJP pick: I’m so torn… AHS is obviously the fan favorite, but I haven’t seen Behind the Candelabra yet, which is a strong contender. A tie?
Funmi pick: The Bible. But I want American Horror Story: Asylum to win. Or it could be Behind the Candelabra.
Good luck to all the nominees! See you all Sunday! Have a great weekend!
