Emmy Nominations Predictions

Courtesy of ATAS
With nominations coming up Thursday morning, here's a quick overview of what, and who, will be nominated for the TV industry's highest honors. While new shows are expected to make big breaks ("Orange is the New Black" and "True Detective'), some common standards should make comfortable returns ("Veep" and "Breaking Bad") but a few others may be all but forgotten ("Homeland" and "Mad Men").

Last year made a huge leap for online TV shows, like "House of Cards" reaping the first drama series nod for a online streaming service (Netflix). With "Orange is the New Black" garnering critical and commercial success on the streaming site, expect the dark prison comedy to be the site's first comedy series nominee as well, with a few acting nominees to boot.

Anywho, here's a list of what I think will be nominees come Thursday morning at 8:35 EST. The nomination announcement will be aired live on most broadcast networks and on the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences's website at www.emmys.com.
