Bernadette’s Emmy Award Nomination Predictions.

Bernadette’s Emmy Award Nomination Predictions.

Now to my actual predictions, as I mentioned at the beginning of the article, I’ve decided to throw a few red herrings in there with the hopes it will pay off if I’m right. The biggest surprise is in Best Comedy Series, I believe either Louie or Big Bang Theory gets dropped, they’ve both been around for a while, never won and their latest seasons haven’t garnered much buzz. I have Transparent and Last Man on Earth taking those slots. As for the ‘extra slot’ because one of the changes this year is an increase from 6 to 7 nominees for the best drama and comedy series race, I have another Chuck Lorre show taking over from BBT and that is Mom. You may scoff but that show handles some gritty material while still being genuinely funny, it should be rewarded for going that extra mile.

My full list of nominations can be found here with their respective ‘odds’ Courtesy of the GoldDerby site www.goldderby.com

Bernadette grew up renting videos from a Plains Video. She mostly hired out Cry Baby and wore the tape thin learning the lines to the John Waters classic. After a series of arguments in the car ride home with her husband, Andrew, the two decided to record their arguments and launch them into the world for everyone to listen to.
