The Emmys are Sunday. It’s hard to believe they came so quickly yet here they are. The only remarkable thing about the Emmys is how unremarkable they are. Though most are predicting a Breaking Bad throwdown, I am not so sure about that. Hard to see through the obsessive nature of the internet when it comes to Breaking Bad. It’s hard to know if Emmy voters will feel the same. Probably. But I wonder. Now in season 3 Games of Thrones is a real threat – House of Cards remains an unknown. It is pioneering a new brand of television before the television Academy. It’s a bit subversive, it is the future. How long before this Academy will be dragged kicking and screaming into that future? Any win for House of Cards and another wall is kicked down. But with the Emmys you are always better off predicting the expected rather than taking a risk. I’m adding in Gold Derby‘s predictions as well.
