Emmy Predictions
The TV Academy has mixed things up with the new Outstanding Talk Series category, opening it up to more traditional late night hosts having a shot at the Emmy this time.
As more shows roll out, Emmy favorites Niecy Nash-Betts (“Monster: ​​The Jeffrey Dahmer Story”) and Claire Danes (“Fleishman Is in Trouble”) standout as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie contenders.
While "Dahmer" star Evan Peters is on a hot streak, the list of his fellow contenders for the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie Emmy continues to grow.
Many of the biggest Limited Series contenders like “Monster: ​​The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” and "Black Bird" came earlier, learning from the faults of last year's Emmy race.
In a transformative year for the Outstanding Television Movie race, hits from last year like “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” and “Fire Island” seem to be faring the best.
Coming off of a banner year of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie performances, this round of Emmy contenders more so face the challenge of making sure voters give their shows a chance.
Last year, Sheryl Lee Ralph winning the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Emmy was the highlight of the night. This year competition is tougher with two past winners whose shows are ending.
"Ted Lasso" star and two-time winner Brett Goldstein's biggest competition for the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series Emmy may be Harrison Ford for his role in "Shrinking," a show Goldstein co-created.
With two-time winner Jean Smart likely out of the running this year, there is a good chance TV breakouts like Quinta Brunson ("Abbott Elementary") and Jenna Ortega ("Wednesday") receive lots of Emmys attention.
"Ted Lasso" looks for a third consecutive Emmy win for Outstanding Comedy Series against other major contenders that are ending like "Maisel" and "Barry," as well as rising newcomers like "Abbott Elementary" and "The Bear."
Fear not; even if "The White Lotus" were to over-perform in a Supporting Actress category again, there are performances from Rhea Seehorn, Sarah Snook, Elizabeth Debicki, and more that still make the Emmys race competitive.
Some new stars in the mix make it a little harder for "Succession" to secure one last Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series win at the 2023 Emmys.
