Emmy Nominations: My Fearless Predix

TV-MAThe wait is almost over. Nominations for the 2017 Emmy Awards will be announced Thursday at 11:30 am ET
(watch them live right here on TVLine) and here’s what I can promise you: HBO’s Big Little Lies and FX’s FEUD: Bette and Joan will dominate the limited series categories, NBC’s Trump-fueled Saturday Night Live will walk away with one of its largest nomination hauls ever, and the list of egregious snubs will be as long as it will be painful. Beyond that, it’s a total crap shoot.

Just kidding! I already glimpsed the final nominations via my freshly Windexed crystal ball and I’m sharing my findings with you because I believe in total and complete transparency when it comes to showing off how prescient I am.
