“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.

When will you have a prediction for variety sketch and talk

And don’t forget the recently-cancelled “Underground.” The acting, the writing, and the fantastic music of this slavery era drama, produced by John Legend, certainly deserves recognition — especially the tour de force performance of Aisha Hinds as legendary abolitionist Harriet Tubman in the “Minty” episode. It was a phenomenal performance that included a 45-page hour-long monologue that simply mesmerized. She at least deserves a nomination, if not the win as Best Guest Star Performance.

In addition, “Queen Sugar” had better be nominated in all drama categories. Acting. Writing. Direction. All perfection, with a special shout-out to Bianca Lawson’s performance in the “Where With All” episode. Tina Lifford, Greg Vaughn, and Rutina Wesley should also get a nod for their work.
