Predicting the Emmy 2018 nominations

As predicted, Game of Thrones - who returned to the fold having been ineligible last year - leads the pack with a grand total of 22 nominations including Best Drama as well as the acting categories (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage and Diana Rigg have all been recognised). Still, the runaway success in terms of the acting department is far and away The Handmaid's Tale which is looking to capitalise on its big win last year.

Elisabeth Moss faces the likes of Claire Foy (The Crown), Keri Russell (The Americans) and Killing Eve's Sandra Oh who becomes the first Asian woman to ever be nominated in the lead actress category while co-stars turn competitors in the categories of Supporting Actress and Outstanding Guest Actress (the former sees nominations for Alexis Biedel, Yvonne Strahovski and reigning champion Ann Dowd).

In the comedy stakes, it's nominations a-plenty for the second season of Donald Glover's Atlanta, Netflix smash GLOW and Amazon's Golden Globe-winning The Marvellous Mrs Maisel which sees Rachel Brosnahan go up against Pamela Adlon (Better Things), Allison Janney (Mom) and Issa Rae of Insecure fame.

Twin Peaks fans won't be happy when they see the Limited Series nominations. Considering it was eligible this year as it aired the majority of its episodes after the Emmys cut-off point in 2017, it's fair to say David Lynch's revival has been snubbed (shout out to Larry David whose long-waited Curb Your Enthusiasm return got noticed in the Comedy categories).

Still, it's good news for The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Godless and Patrick Melrose who'll all duke it out while Laura Dern may as well collect her trophy now for The Tale.

We're rooting for Atlanta to take Best Comedy again this year after a daring and idiosyncratic second season. Here's our recent interview with one of its stars: i-amphtml-sizer">>

Regardless of whether you actually like Game of Thrones or not, I think we can all agree that is an unbelievable piece of craftsmanship. As such, it is always tough to beat in over-arching 'show' categories, but not so impenetrable when it comes to its acting, which varies enormously. i-amphtml-sizer">>

Patrick Melrose has a strong chance in the Limited Series category. I highly recommend checking out the first episode, which is one long standalone, deranged drug trip.

>2018-07-12T13:54:47.753Z As Game of Thrones comes to a close, HBO is probably hoping Westworld starts picking up awards, but the show seemed to lose rather than gain buzz with its second outing. >2018-07-12T13:56:27.180Z RuPaul has won Best Reality Host two years running now, but we can expect the Queer Eye Boys to get a nomination today, and they have an outside chance of stealing the crown. >2018-07-12T15:10:32.030Z Not long to go, one and all - here's hoping for a few surprises and a willingness to stray from nominating the old usuals >2018-07-12T15:16:39.900Z This could be the year that The Americans finally sweeps the board - it aired its sixth and final season earlier this year to huge acclaim. >2018-07-12T15:17:48.720Z Just a note - Twin Peaks *is* eligible for nominations this year as it aired the majority of its episodes after the cut off point in 2017. >2018-07-12T15:18:56.820Z Another dead cert for recognition is Laura Dern whose performance in HBO film The Tale could be a career best.i-amphtml-sizer"> >2018-07-12T15:20:58.260Z As bold as its second season was, Stranger Things being nominated in the Best Drama category would feel a waste considering the fresh blood we have on offer this year (Killing Eve, Mindhunter and Ozark to name just three). >2018-07-12T15:24:22.556Z The comedy category is very much up in the air! A lot of people will be disappointed if The Good Place is snubbed but I wouldn't get your hopes up >2018-07-12T15:26:29.270Z ...which is a good time to note that Veep won't be in contention this year as it was off the air while Julia Louis-Dreyfus could recover from her cancer treatment (we love you Julia!) >2018-07-12T15:27:22.036Z This year's nominations will be announced by Samira Wiley of The Handmaid's Tale fame and The Blacklist's Ryan Eggold >2018-07-12T15:27:41.076Z
