2013 Primetime Emmy Winner Predictions

I’m a huge fan of television. Ranging from reality to drama to comedy, I love, love, love it all! So in honor of the 2013 Primetime Emmy’s next Sunday, I thought it would be fun to make some winner predictions. Not all of my predicted winners are people or shows I actually like… trust me, I have strong feelings about actors and actresses and can be a total beotch when it comes down to it. Not all of the categories are posted, I could careless about Best Choreography. Oh, and since this is the end of Breaking Bad, I’m guessing they are going to rack the eff up on awards.

Last night was the Creative Emmy Awards and my man Anthony Bourdain got CNN its first Primetime Emmy with his new hit show “Parts Unknown.” Congrats, Tony!

Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

  • Bobby Canavale, Boardwalk Empire
  • Jonathan Banks, Breaking Bad
  • Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad
  • Jim Carter, Downtown Abbey
  • Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
  • Mandy Patinkin, Homeland

Winner: Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones

*Again I am super-biased but this time I truly believe Dinklage will win (again… he won this same award in 2011) for his role as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones. I have no second prediction. All my faith is in him.


Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series

  • George Mastras, Breaking Bad
  • Thomas Schnauz, Breaking Bad
  • Julian Fellowes, Downtown Abbey
  • David Benioff/D.B. Weiss, Game of Thrones
  • Henry Bromell, Homeland

Winner: one the the writers for Breaking Bad. Which of them it’ll be, I couldn’t tell you.

*I know Breaking Bad is the world’s most precious 1 hour of television right now but in retrospect, Game of Thrones’ writing is outstanding in every way imaginable. No really… it is. While I don’t know a whole lot about BB, I don’t need to, the dialogue in GoT plainly deserves this.

Outstanding Drama Series

  • Breaking Bad
  • Downtown Abbey
  • Homeland
  • Game of Thrones
  • House of Cards

Winner: Breaking Bad

*Getting so tired of typing Breaking Bad.

  • Anna Chlumsky, Veep

  • Adam Driver, Girls
  • Ty Burrell, Modern Family
  • Bill Hader, Saturday Night Live

Outstanding Lead Actor In A Miniseries Or A Movie

  • Matt Damon, Behind the Candelabra
  • Michael Douglas, Behind the Candelbra
  • Benedict Cumberbatch, Parade’s End
  • Al Pacino, Phil Spector
  • Toby Jones, The Girl

Winner: Matt Damon, Behind the Candelabra


Outstanding Lead Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie

  • Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Asylum
  • Helen Mirren, Phil Spector
  • Laura Linney, The Big C: Hereafter
  • Sigourney Weaver, Political Animals
  • Elisabeth Moss, Top of the Lake

Winner: Jessica Lange, American Horror Story: Asylum

*If you never watched American Horror Story, you definitely should. It is fantastically creepy and the acting is superb. A new season starts October 9th. You don’t need to have seen the past two seasons to pick up on the new ones, they all start anew with a majority of the same actors returning as different roles. This season is called, “Coven” and will take place in New Orleans. Watch it.


Outstanding Miniseries or Movie

  • Behind the Candelabra
  • American Horror Story: Asylum
  • Phil Spector
  • Political Animals
  • The Bible
  • Top of the Lake

Winner: The Bible

*The Bible was viewed by an average of over 13 million viewers total, making it a huge success. I want to say Behind the Candelabra could win because of the politics of Hollywood, but it would make sense for The Bible to bring home the victory. Also, is it disgusting of me to say that the actor who plays Jesus is super fine? Wow.

    You don’t think Jim Parson’s will take out the gong again? I think it might be a close call between Aaron Paul and Peter Dinklage for the supporting actor award, I also think Claire Danes may actually win lead actress! Very good run down though!

    • sarah On The Go says:

      I love Jim Parsons. No one could play Sheldon Cooper better than him so I really am pulling for him. I’m only calling the win for Jason Bateman because of the hype around the comeback of Arrested Development. And please not Claire Danes!!! Thanks for stopping by :)
