Emmy Races 2013

Emmy race for TV Series has already started. Two weeks are left before IKEs (that's how the statuette is called) are granted to the most successful actors, directors, writers and producers. But yet we can only guess who's gonna be the lucky ones.

There are numerous critics who predict the names of 2012 award holders, so I'm gonna present you major EMMY nominees in accordance of winning odds.

BEST DRAMA SERIES
The fifth win of Mad Men will make this show a record holder on EMMYs for the five consequent best drama series odd. As for now, it is the definite leader for drama major category, but the critics still debate whether Breaking Bad goes ahead or not.

Personally, I think that Game of Thrones is totally smashing but apparently the movie geeks don't like this fantasy drama that much.



BEST COMEDY SERIES


Modern Family - a comedy that gives a satirical look at three different families and the trials they face in each of their own uniquely comedic ways - is the true leader for comedy category. More than 60% of critics vote for its winning odd and I'm with them because this is the revolution (or maybe evolution) in TV shows history. 
Besides, Modern Family leads with its acting categories: 4 in supporting comedy actor and 2 in supporting comedy actress. Those additional nominations makes show outstandingly best candidate for winning.

DRAMA ACTOR
  • Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)
  • Damian Lewis (Homeland)
  • Jon Ham (Mad Men)
  • Hugh Bonneville (Downtown Abbey)
  • Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire)
  • Michael C. Hall (Dexter)
While Jon Ham tied with Michael C. Hall and Steve Buscemi is the winner of Golden Globe and Emmys for respective roles, Bryan Cranston heads the nomination. Truly this year was amazing for him and the current season was definitely one of the bests for him. 

COMEDY ACTOR
  • Louis C.K. (Louie)
  • Jim Parsons (the Big Bang Theory)
  • Larry Davis (Curb Your Enthusiasm)
  • Alec Baldwin (30 Rock)
  • Don Cheadle (House of Lies)
  • Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Man)
This is Louis C.K.'s very first acting nomination while Jim Parsons and Alec Baldwin have already marched on Emmys and Golden Globes. Still C.K. is ahead of both and most of critics vote in favor of his wins.

DRAMA ACTRESS

  • Clair Danes (Homeland)
  • Juliana Margulies (the Good Wife)
  • Elizabeth Moss (Mad Men)
  • Michelle Dockery (Downton Abbey)
  • Kathy Bates (Harrys Law)
  • Glenn Close (Damages)
Golden Globe champ Clair Danes is far ahead of her leading nomination as a CIA agent in Homeland. But at the same time, growing popularity of Mad Men somehow pulls of Elizabeth Moss who was cold as "another mad men along the other men". 

COMEDY ACTRESS
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep)
  • Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreations)
  • Zooey Deschanel (New Girl)
  • Lena Dunham (Girls)
  • Tina Fey (30 Rock)
  • Melissa McCarthy (Mike and Molly)
Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Amy Poehler could be a winning candidate for comedy actress category if not 2012 fresh face Julia Louis - Dreyfus who rocked her role as a VP of US. Now she leads according to 40% of critics and movie geeks. But Amy lags behind her front-rank-man with few votes, so everything can happen.

Also, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) leads supporting drama actor nomination winning to Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) - last year Emmy and Golden Globe champ and my personal sympathy. Maggie Smith of Downton Abbey wins supporting drama actress race while on screen husband & wife from Modern Family Ty Burrell and Julie Bowel are unbeaten in comedy supporting actor races.
