There are our usual favourites like ‘Game of Thrones’ or ‘The Crown’ or ‘Stranger Things’ or even ‘Westworld’. Some actors like Julia Louis Dreyfus have not been nominated this year. And there is a whole lot of new shows that have been nominated; ‘Barry’ for example.

Here are my predictions of the winners who will take home the Emmy this year (names marked in bold). The predictions are for only those categories, which interest me. Do share your feedback, if you agree (or disagree) with my choices. Let’s see how many correct predictions I make.

Freedom

Now we are free

The sky waits for us

No cage to hold us back

The wings soar high

A bullet flies past

A drop of blood

The pull of gravity

weighs more than the spirit

Back to the cage

the skies mock me

The trees urge me to break free

I try….. but fail.

Then one night,

Hope comes to me

I fly into your arms

I am finally free
