The long-delayed Emmy Awards are finally here!

On Monday night, Jan. 15, television lovers will get to watch as their small screen favorites are honored for their accomplishments in dramas and comedies in 2022 and 2023.

Ahead of the big day, host Anthony Anderson told PEOPLE the show will be "huge," especially since it's the historic 75th.

"I’m just excited to be at the helm," he said. "I’m rooting for everybody."

Who are you rooting for? And who will win? Here are PEOPLE Picks editor Tom Gliatto's predictions for the stars and series that will walk away with the wins at Monday night's Emmy Awards, which air live on Fox at 8 p.m. ET.

Outstanding Drama Series: 'Succession'

Succession

Already a two-time winner, the modern dynastic saga Succession, so scorchingly cruel it makes rival House of the Dragon look like a marshmallow roast, will win for its terrific final season.

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series: Bella Ramsey, 'The Last of Us'

Bella Ramsey

Among wow nominees including Succession’s Sarah Snook, Bella Ramsey, as a kid named Ellie who might save the world on The Last of Us, was an original — tough, touching, bravely open to adventure.

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series: Kieran Culkin, 'Succession'

Kieran Culkin

You might argue that Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk should win on his sixth try, but Kieran Culkin’s slime puppy Roman Roy had a sob scene for the ages — a stunning Succession moment.

Outstanding Comedy Series: 'The Bear'

The Bear

TV comedy isn’t an especially happy-faced genre anymore — and the daring new entry The Bear, about a Chicago chef shaken by his brother’s death, puts despair right on the menu. But it’s funny too.

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series: Quinta Brunson, 'Abbott Elementary'

Quinta Brunson

If only this prize could be cut up like cake and served to all five nominees. (We love that wiseacre Natasha Lyonne on Peacock’s Poker Face.) But Quinta Brunson’s sitcom teacher on her series Abbott Elementary is so charming!

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series: Jeremy Allen White, 'The Bear'

Jeremy Allen White

Jeremy Allen White was transfixing as a chef clobbered by trauma on The Bear. A lighter option: Martin Short, blithely silly on Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building.

Outstanding Limited Series: 'Beef'

<p>Andrew Cooper/Netflix</p> Beef

Beef

Beef, a comedy about road-rage enemies (Ali Wong and Steven Yeun), takes off at a roaring speed, but check under the hood and you’ll find a study of Asian American identity.

Outstanding Television Movie: 'Weird: The Al Yankovic Story'

Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe plays the famous song parodist "Weird" Al Yankovic in the funny, largely fictional biopic Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. (PEOPLE's predictions ran in the Jan. 15, 2024 issue, which was on newsstands ahead of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, at which Weird won.)

Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Special: 'Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie'

<p>AppleTV+</p> Michael J. Fox

Michael J. Fox

Michael J. Fox, diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 1991, looks back on his life with engaging humor and frankness in his documentary, Still. (PEOPLE's predictions ran in the Jan. 15, 2024 issue, which was on newsstands ahead of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, at which Still won.)
