67th Primetime Emmy Awards Nominations Predictions: June Update


Not much has happened on the Emmys front since my last update in May.  Mad Men had a well received finale that will surely put it in the middle of a Drama Series race that now seems 6 shows deep, and the May TV movies and miniseries have all been critical disappointments (even Bessie didn’t get the strong reviews that would make it the TV Movie frontrunner that many thought it would be).  So now we wait until June 15 when the official Emmy ballots released and the Emmys race becomes a lot clearer.
