Emmy Smackdown: Deadline’s Pete Hammond & Gold Derby’s Tom O’Neil Predict Comedy Races

Television Academy

With this year’s Emmy nominations announcement just two days away, Gold Derby’s Tom O’Neil and I continue our predictions of just who will be on that list come Thursday morning. After going toe to toe on Drama series categories yesterday, today we take on the comedy area, but do we agree how this will turn out? Not necessarily, though HBO’s Veep is a pretty daunting returning champ and the one to beat.

But there could be upsets, plus there are categories where broadcast networks actually have a shot as well. Can The Big Bang Theory return after being snubbed last year? Will ABC’s Black-ish  make a splash in a big way in its second season at-bat? Are voters sick of Modern Family? Can Netflix lead a huge invasion with shows like Master Of None, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Grace & Frankie?

Click on the video above to see where we stand.
