Emmys 2019

Vancouver Film School’s Christopher Bennett Gives Emmy Predictions

Happy Emmy Day!

Tonight is the night of the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards. The show will air on Fox at 8pm EST. While there is technically no host, several past Emmy winners will be on hand to present. Several names include Marisa Tomei, John Hamm and James Corden.

It is a huge night for several shows, especially Veep and Game Of Thrones, both of which ended their run earlier this year. The two shows were nominated for several awards, including a Lead Actress in a Comedy  nod for Julia Louis-Dreyfus and a Lead Actor in a Drama for Kit Harrington. In fact, Game Of Thrones is up for a total of 32 awards tonight. 

TVGrapevine recently shared their Emmy predictions and in a few short hours, we will find out if we are correct, or way off base.

Vancouver Film School’s Christopher Bennett recently shared his own thoughts on the show and his predictions. He thinks that Game Of Thrones will walk away with several awards, including the Best Supporting Actress in a drama. Four of the is actresses are from the show, which heightens the odds of GoT taking that category.

As for two Lead Actress categories, he predicts Julia will win for the Comedy category. If this happens, she will have the most Emmy wins in history. She already has eleven, thanks to Veep and Seinfeld. He also predicts a win for Sandra Oh, who was nominated for Killing Eve.

However, the toughest category for him to choose was Lead Actor in a Comedy. He admits the competition is tough this year, because it is truly anyone’s game. He thinks Ted Danson has a shot, but isn’t quite ruling out a win for Eugene Levy.
