“Game of Thrones” is out, so what’s moving in? The 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards are wide open on the drama side, and the annual celebration of TV’s best programs is set up for a year of change. Ineligible due to a release date delay, “Game of Thrones” will be succeeded by…”Westworld”? “Dear White People”? Or, dare we dream, “The Leftovers”? Can “Veep” maintain its stranglehold on the comedy side? And what about all the new limited series set to go toe-to-toe with “Fargo”?
As we prepare to embark on the long Emmys race to come, there are many pressing questions to consider. Voters will have more contenders to sort through than ever, and IndieWire is here to keep you informed on what shows, performers, and behind-the-camera artists are gaining traction with the TV Academy — and which are fading fast.
