Variety’s Awards Circuit Roundtable Gives Its Final Predictions to Who Will Win — And Who Should Win — The Emmys

This is it! This year’s Emmy voting is over, ending what was a rather muted Phase 2. We’ve noted the limited number of Phase 2 FYC events due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes (as well as the inability of nominated talent to participate in any press that they hadn’t already completed pre-strike). And now, with voting ending, the usual anticipation of September Emmy events won’t be there, and we’ll all go on pause until (hopefully!) January.

But before we go… Variety’s Awards Circuit Podcast has one more look at this year’s race, in a Mega Roundtable edition featuring hosts Michael Schneider, Clayton Davis, Emily Longeretta and Jazz Tangcay. The team goes through all of the major categories and shares their picks for who will win — and who should win. Listen below!

How strategic are voters in choosing between different shows and stars? Will current seasons of series like “The Bear” and “Only Murders in the Building” impact the previous seasons that are actually nominated? Is a “Succession” sweep a foregone conclusion in drama? Will voters choose something new in comedy, or stick with one last “Ted Lasso” round? How might the strikes impact voting patterns? We dive deep.

Check out Clayton Davis’ Emmy predictions for every category here. Meanwhile, if you haven’t caught up on recent episodes, do listen!
