Emmy Predictions 2017

“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”? “The Crown”? “This Is Us”? 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 Emmys race to come, there are many pressing questions to consider. Voters have more nominees 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.

Below you will find IndieWire’s predictions for the 2017 Primetime Emmys. IndieWire TV Critic Ben Travers and the IW TV team will be monitoring the ups and downs of every major category throughout the season by speaking to voters, interviewing candidates, attending FYC events, and assessing industry chatter in order to provide the most up-to-date state of the race.

Nominations have been announced, and the 69th Primetime Emmys are set for September 17. Predictions (below) will be refreshed regularly, so keep checking IndieWire for the most accurate power rankings available, and make sure to follow IndieWire on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest Emmys news.
