Emmy Predictions: Best Drama Series

Breaking Bad's final season should bring the show its second consecutive Drama Series win. True Detective, however, is also a major contender. Masters of Sex is on the bubble, but I wouldn't be surprised if any of these top 10 end up making it in.

1. Breaking Bad (AMC)

3. Game of Thrones (HBO)

Emmy Predictions: Best Actor (Drama)

This category is always stacked. But the inclusion of True Detective in Drama Series (as opposed to mini-series) really shakes things up. McConaughey could challenge Cranston for the win. It will be interesting to see what happens with Harrelson. He deserves a nod, but I'm not sure if they'll reward two from the same show in such a great year.

Emmy Predictions: Best Actress (Drama)

Last year, there were seven nominees for best actress, so this category is hard to predict. I'd be surprised if Danes wins 3 consecutive Emmys for Homeland, especially in a down season for the show. Masters of Sex seems like it will get a lot of notice, so I'm thinking Caplan sneaks in for a well deserved nomination.

Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actor (Drama)

This race is between Peter Dinklage and Aaron Paul. Paul has already won two Emmys in the past and with Dinklage shining in his best season yet, I'm giving the slight edge to Dinklage. I'm expecting Norris to grab the other supporting nod occupied by previous Breaking Bad nominees Giancarlo Esposito and Jonathan Banks in the past. Slattery and Wright could sneak in but anything outside of the top 8 would be a surprise.

Emmy Predictions: Best Supporting Actress (Drama)

The first four were nominated last year and they seem fairly safe to return again. The last two spots are were it gets interesting. Morena Baccarin from Homeland was nominated last year, but hardly appeared this season, so she's out. Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones was also nominated last year, but I'm expecting her co-star Lena Headey, who had the much better season, to knock her out.
