Looking for a printable ballot to make your Emmys predictions ahead of time? FanSided has you covered as you get ready for the awards show.
Earlier this morning, the nominations for the 70th annual primetime Emmys were announced.
As is often the case, some returning award contenders once again scooped up nominations. Among the group were the likes of Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, Westworld and The Crown.
Game of Thrones’ performance at the ceremony should be particularly interesting to watch. The hit HBO drama wasn’t eligible for last year’s Emmys as its air dates in the last season didn’t air within the show’s eligibility period.
Now, however, Thrones is back. The show once again picked up nominations in a variety of categories ranging from Outstanding Drama to other categories like Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Musical Composition.
It will face stiff competition, especially in the various drama categories, from a host of relatively new shows that have come on strong over the past few years.
Westworld, The Crown and The Handmaiden’s Tale have all established themselves as award show threats in years past and will now go head-to-head with the longtime Outstanding Drama Series contender in Thrones. It’ll certainly be interesting to see which show comes out victorious, or if another series can upset the apple caret and snare the award. Though it won’t happen until the fall, there’s plenty to speculate and talk about.
In addition to speculating and talking about the show, you can take it a step further and actually fill out a ballot ahead of time.
It’s never to early to get a head start on things, and we here at FanSided have you covered with a printable ballot that you can view below:
This post will be updated with a printable ballot shortly.
The comedy race will also be worth keeping an eye on, as a crowded field for Outstanding Comedy Series includes Atlanta, Barry, black-ish, Silicon Valley and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel among others.
Audiences around the country will be able to watch the Emmys on NBC on Sept. 17. Saturday Night Live Weekend Update duo Michael Che and Colin Jost will step in as hosts for the show, which will air on a Monday. Che and Jost’s hosting continues a longstanding trend of people associated with Saturday Night Live hosting the ceremony. Over the past 15 years, Conan O’Brien, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon and Andy Samberg have all hosted.
