Emmy fever is in full swing now as we’re less than a week out from the primetime ceremony. With such prestigious drama’s in play (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, to name a few) it’s not difficult to run into someone with an opinion on who should take home the gold.
Variety has put together their own predictions based on their writer’s opinions, and as you can imagine, True Detective makes multiple appearances. Variety predicts a win for True Detective in Best Director for Cary Fukunaga, but that’s the only clear-cut decision. When it comes to Best Actor in a Drama and Best Drama series, things stand a little more divided.
The writer’s are split on whether Best Actor should go to Bryan Cranston or Matthew McConaughey, but Best Drama goes to Breaking Bad. That decision seems to follow suit with the recent reader poll that was posted in which Breaking Bad was the clear favorite.
Regardless of who wins, it looks like we’re in for a tight race. The 2014 Emmy’s are set to take place on August 25th.
