Podcast Preview: If We Had a Ballot

Primetime Emmy

Dropping Monday, the Water Cooler Podcast gang of Clarence, Megan, and Joey put down the Emmy prediction game for a week and make their personal picks in the major 2015 Emmy categories. Categories covered include Comedy, Drama, Limited, Movie/Mini, Reality, and Variety series. This coincides with the opening of the Emmy voting period, so it’s a good time for our team to gather around the Cooler and share their personal preferences in the Emmy season. Again, this is not who we think will win – just who we would vote for if we had an Emmy ballot.

Want to play along at home? Prepare your own Emmy ballot and share it with us in the Comments section below! We’ll read some of them aloud on the Podcast if you’d like a shout-out. Want to email your ballot? Send it to Clarence, and he’ll tally the viewer’s choices for the podcast.

Categories and nominees covered on the podcast are listed here.

    Really don’t care about the drama categories this year, so i’ll focus on comedy/limited series. Of the nominees, my vote would absolutely go to Transparent (which is the real “modern family”). However, HBO’s The Comeback and Looking would have made strong arguments had they not been shamefully overlooked (with zero nominations for the later). Would love to see Tambor, Kudrow, Hale, Chumsky, Hamm, and Fey take home acting awards. Over in the limited series/movie section, how could you not vote for Olive Kitteridge across the board?

    Normally I do fairly okay with seeing what ends up getting nominated, but this year I have really sucked. I have only seen a few episodes of How to Get Away with Murder, about 7 of Better Call Saul, none from this season of Game of Thrones and Mad Men. I have seen a few episodes of Mad Men, but only from the first season.

    I have thankfully seen the whole first season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and I thought it was true greatness. One of the funniest and best comedies I’ve ever seen quite frankly.

    I’d vote for Kimmy Schmidt for every category it’s nominated in, especially for TV Show Drama.
    I’d vote for Better Call Saul since I liked what I saw.
    I’d vote for Ben Mendelsohn because he’s terrific in Bloodline.
