The New York Times: Emmy Awards 2016: 5 Things to Look for at the Ceremony
LOS ANGELES — Free of the controversy that overshadowed this year’s Academy Awards and its lineup of all-white acting nominees, the 68th Primetime Emmysarrive on ABC on Sunday night with the focus squarely on the awards at a time when there’s never been more competition in TV.
Will HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” repeat for best drama and best comedy? (They’re favorites.) Will FX’s “The People v. O. J. Simpson” and its star-studded cast come close to sweeping all the limited series categories? (Very possibly.) And will Netflix benefit from this year’s presidential election and finally break through in the top acting categories for Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright in “House of Cards?” (Maybe.) –The New York Times
