Given the vastness of the TV landscape, it’s harder than ever to forecast what’s going to be nominated for this year’s Emmys. It’s even challenging to gauge the amount of nominees there might be when they are announced on July 16.
Important classes like Outstanding Drama or Comedy, as an example, typically include seven nominated programs. But due to what’s called the two percent rule, there may be eight or nine: How it works is that when an eighth or ninth show comes within 2 percent of the same amount of votes as the seventh nominee, these extra one or two shows have to be nominated also. The total is capped at nine, though. (If you want to read about Emmy principles like these and give yourself a spectacular headache, rock on.)
In other words, forecasting, always a murky job under the best of situation, feels especially murky when it comes to the Emmys. What follows are basically shots in the dark, is what I am saying. So let’s cut on the lights and begin shooting some 2019 Emmy predictions into the void, shall we?
