Biased 2015 Emmy Award Winner Predictions

Here is Give The Flak‘s predictions of who will take home this years Emmy Awards in the Comedy and Drama categories tomorrow. However, our predictions are biased, and unreliable, as we’ve not seen most of these shows ’cause ain’t nobody got time for dat.

COMEDY

OUTSTANDING COMEDY SERIES

NOMINEES: Transparent, Parks and Recreation, Veep, Modern Family, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Silicon Valley

Kai – Who should win?: I’ve watched every single episode of Modern Family, but not a single episode of any other of the nominated shows. So, “Modern Family”
Tyus – Who should win?: I am agreeing with Kai here, and will go with the hilarious, “Modern Family.(I have seen Kimmy Schmidt which is good, but not as good as “Modern Family.”) Many say it will be “Veep” but this is a biased list of predictions.

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES

NOMINEES: Amy Poehler, Amy Schumer, Lisa Kudrow, Lily Tomlin, Edie Falco, Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Kai – Who should win?: Julia Louis-Dreyfus was in Seinfeild, which I was watching recently and liked. She is also very good-looking. So her.
Tyus – Who should win?: On one good day, I stumbled upon an Amy Schumer skit. After watching it repeatedly for countless numbers of times, I decided to check out a couple other of her skits. I loved them all. She’s a funny comedian, who deserves the award.

OUTSTANDING LEAD ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES

NOMINEES: Anthony Anderson, William H. Macy, Louis C.K, Matt LeBlanc, Don Cheadle, Jeffrey Tambor, Will Forte

Kai – Who should win?: Matt LeBlanc. Because he was in Friends.
Tyus – Who should win?: From the short video clips, and how he won Golden Globe award for the role, I predict that Jeffrey Tambor will go home with the prize.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTRESS IN A COMEDY SERIES

NOMINEES: Allison Janney, Julie Bowen, Kate McKinnon, Anna Chlumsky, Mayim Bialik, Gaby Hoffmann, Niecy Nash, Jane Krakowski

Kai – Who should win?: Julie Bowen is great in Modern Family, so…
Tyus – Who should win?: I really don’t know. Allison Janey seemed pretty funny in “Mom” so, her.

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A COMEDY SERIES

NOMINEES: Adam Driver, Ty Burrell, Andre Braugher, Keegan-Michael Key, Tituss burgess, Tony hale

Kai – Who should win?: Ty Burrell’s character in Modern Family is one of my favourite television characters ever, so TAKE A GUESS.
Tyus – Who should win?: Ty Burrell. Must I really explain why?

DRAMA

OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES

NOMINEES: Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Mad Men, Homeland, Downton Abbey

Kai –  Who should win?: I’ve heard a lot of those shows are quite good, but I’ll choose “Mad Men” because my mum loves it. I’m a good son.
Tyus – Who should win?: Don’t get mad men, for I chose, “Mad Men.” 

OUTSTANDING lead actress in a drama series

NOMINEES: Taraji P. Henson, Tatiana Maslany, Viola Davis, Claire Danes, Robin Wright, Elizabeth Moss

Tyus – Who should win?: Everybody thinks that Viola Davis will win, so I’ll go along with the flow.

Outstanding LEAD ACTOR in a drama SERIES

NOMINEES: Jeff Daniels, Bob Odenkirk,  Jon Hamm, Liev Schreiber, Kevin Spacey, Kyler Chandler

OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES

Kai – Who should win?: Jonathan Banks was in some good episodes of Community, and I’m sure he’s good in whatever TV show he’s in to get nominated.
Tyus – Who should win?: Alan Cumming, because he’s a Broadway actor, and the only person I know here.

OUTSTANDING GUEST ACTRESS IN A DRAMA SERIES

NOMINEES: Allison Janney, Diana Rigg, Rachel Brosnahan, Cicely Tyson, Khandi Alexander, Margo Martindale

Kai – Who should win?: I’ve heard that Diana Rigg is really good in Game of Thrones, so I’m going to pick her. I listen to people, which is surprising considering the nature of this article.
Tyus- Who should win?:  Margo Martindale, because why not?

OUTSTANDING GUEST ACTOR IN A DRAMA SERIES

NOMINEES: F. Murray Abraham, Reg E. Cathey, Beau Bridges, Pablo Schreiber, Alan Alda, Michael J. Fox

Kai – Who should win?: …I don’t know. Alan Alda sounds cool.
