Jalal Haddad joins the Cooler gang to look at the 2017 Drama Emmy races. Which series will fill slots left behind by Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey?
This week at the Water Cooler, we’re completing our deep-dive into the top contenders in the three main Emmy races: Drama Series, Comedy Series, and Limited Series/TV Movie. We’ve covered Limited Series and Comedy Series in two previous podcasts. This week, we’re wrapping things up with a new look at the 2017 Drama Emmy races.
Unlike the Comedy races, throngs of new contenders threaten to take spots from perennial favorites. Who stands to benefit from the absence of Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey? Will Mr. Robot repeat in this year’s race? How far will Stranger Things or This Is Us go? Will The Handmaid’s Tale ride a wave of political relevance and critical acclaim to overcome its late entry into the race? Will House of Cards overcome comparisons to the Trump administration to remain relevant in the Emmy race? We cover these topics and more with Awards Daily’s own Emmy expert Jalal Haddad.
We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
