Emmy Predictions: Variety Sketch/Variety Talk

Variety Sketch Series:
Saturday Night Live
Documentary Now
Drunk History
Billy On The Street
Maya and Marty
Tracey Ullman’s Show
Mystery Science Theatre 3000
Comedy Bang Bang
The President Show

I believe there’s five nominees in this category. SNL is obviously a lock. I believe Portlandia and Documentary Now are pretty solid choices. So for the last two….which ones do I think the Emmy voters will go for the most?

My Predictions: SNL, Portlandia, Documentary Now, Drunk History, Maya and MArty

Variety Talk Series:
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Jimmy Kimmel Live
Late Late Show With James Corden
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee
Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
Daily Show with Trevor Noah
Late Night with Seth Meyers
Real Time with Bill Maher

This is a tough category. These guys produce some really good work. I think John Oliver is probably a lock, and destined to win this category, as he has essentially become the new Jon Stewart. Picking the rest of the nominees is hard. Samantha Bee and Chelsea Handler would be groundbreaking nominees as women aren’t typically recognized in this category. I think one will actually get in this year. I think Bill Maher’s recent controversy with the N word at a time when people were doing Emmy voting might have just knocked him out of the nominees.

My Predictions: John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel, Samantha Bee
