AwardsWatch’s Erik Anderson joins Joey, Megan and Clarence around the Water Cooler to take a close look at the 2017 Emmy races.
This week at AwardsDaily TV, we’ve released our first Emmy Tracker for the 2017 Emmy races, available on the ADTV main page. The Emmy Tracker provides a pre-nominations ranking of the most probable Emmy contenders. On this week’s podcast, we look at each major acting and series category along with our friend Erik Anderson from AwardsWatch. The conversation goes long, admittedly. However, major previous Emmy contenders (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) are not in contention this year, and let’s talk about that Limited Series actress category. The deep-dive is extremely worth it.
But before that, we kick things off with our weekly TV Tidbits segment. First up, Megan spent a lot of time this week with cast members from USA’s Emmy contender Mr. Robot. She talks about what she learned, what surprised her, and what to look forward to when her interviews drop later this Emmy season. Then, we talk about comedy developments over at NBC including changes at Saturday Night Live and Trial and Error. Finally, we briefly talk about last week’s number one film Kong: Skull Island. Erik scoffs from the side on this one.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week. Mark your calendars for April’s second Water Cooler Book Club entry with Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. This entry comes, of course, in preparation for Hulu’s series of the same name which drops April 26.
