Will Veep threepeat? HBO’s political satire has won Emmy’s top comedy prize two years in a row, but Selina Meyer is poised to face some stiff competition from a pair of critical darlings (Donald Glover’s rookie dramedy Atlanta and Aziz Ansari’s better-than-ever Master of None).
There’s also an outside chance Veep‘s biggest threat could come from inside its own (HBO) house; Girls‘ exceptionally strong final season could propel Lena Dunham & Co. back into the race after a years-long absence.
