2014 Emmy Predictions: Best Comedy Series

By Peter Knegt and Ben Travers | Indiewire May 6, 2014 at 2:01PM

Here's our take on the best comedy series category.
Orange Is The New Black
Netflix "Orange Is The New Black"

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions through August 25th, when the winners will be announced. 

Is this the year "Modern Family" is finally knocked off its throne? (Damn -- if this were Drama Series, we could make a "Game of Thrones" joke here.) The show lost some steam in total nominations, and "Orange is the New Black," "Veep," and "Louie" are all riding high. Can one of these take the title?
