KimTiu 2015 Emmy Predictions Part 1: Drama

 

 

Writing

Matthew Weiner

  • The Americans (Episode: “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?”), Written by Joshua Brand
  • Better Call Saul (Episode: “Five-O”), Written by Gordon Smith
  • Game of Thrones (Episode: “Mother’s Mercy”), Written by David Benioff & D.B. Weiss
  • Mad Men (Episode: “Lost Horizon”), Written by Matthew Weiner & Semi Chellas
  • Mad Men (Episode: “Person to Person”), Written by Matthew Weiner

Sean: “While I’d like Game of Thrones to win an award for its writing at some point, I can’t support an episode that includes the line ‘You want a good girl, but you need the bad pussy’ in a non-farcical manner. Mad Men will probably earn the trophy this year for one of the best series finales ever written.”

Should Win: Mad Men (Episode: “Person to Person”), Written by Matthew Weiner

Will Win: Mad Men (Episode: “Person to Person”), Written by Matthew Weiner

Kim: “I reiterate my point from our previous article. Why this episode? There are at least a couple of other episodes that Game of Thrones could have submitted. “Hardhome” for one.

“Person to Person” should win this. Period.”

Direction

Director

  • Boardwalk Empire (Episode: “Eldorado”), Directed by Tim Van Patten
  • Game of Thrones (Episode: “Mother’s Mercy”), Directed by David Nutter
  • Game of Thrones (Episode: “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken”), Directed by Jeremy Podeswa
  • Homeland (Episode: “From A to B and Back Again”), Directed by Lesli Linka Glatter
  • The Knick (Episode: “Method and Madness”), Directed by Steven Soderbergh

Sean: “Soderbergh deserves a lot of credit for directing the entire season of The Knick, which kept the show really consistent throughout its freshman year, as well as delivering on Soderbergh’s trademark style. However, considering the amount of love going towards Game of Thrones, there’s a good chance that David Nutter will take the award for delivering one of the most intense and harrowing episodes of the show yet.”

Should Win: The Knick (Episode: “Method and Madness”), Directed by Steven Soderbergh

Will Win: Game of Thrones (Episode: “Mother’s Mercy”), Directed by David Nutter

Kim: “This category has lately been a fight between known cinema directors and TV auteurs who deliver fantastic finales. While David Nutter did give us some of the most memorable sequences in Thrones history, it was still an uneven episode. I still think Soderbergh’s smooth style will take this.”
