A few weeks ago, we published an article listing some of the possible nominations for the Emmy Awards. The Emmy Awards happen every year, and it’s a great time to see which TV shows are worth watching, as well as to root for the shows you love. This year, some great shows have been nominated.
The nominations were finally released on July 12, so this gives bettors a much better chance at putting their money on the right shows. The actual award show doesn’t happen until September 12, 2022, but this gives you some time to figure out where you want to put your money, and even more time to binge watch all of the shows that were nominated.
Tons of Categories
There are quite a few categories for the Emmy Awards, and you are able to wager on a few of them. These include the categories of “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series”, “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series”, “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series”, “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series”, “Outstanding Comedy Series”, “Outstanding Drama Series”, and “Outstanding Limited Series”.
Even if you can’t bet on the remaining categories, they still have some amazing people and shows nominated, so be sure to check the Emmy Award Nominations list in your free time.
Outstanding Leads in a Comedy Series
2022 gave us some amazing comedy series, and they wouldn’t be the same without their leads. On the list of nominations for Outstanding Actor in a Comedy Series this year are Bill Hader in Barry, Jason Sudeikis in Ted Lasso, and Steven Martin and Martin Short in Only Murders in the Building.
Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis sit tied at the top of the list for their performances in Barry and Ted Lasso. Their odds are 5-6. Next in line are both Steven Martin and Martin Short for their performances in Only Murders in the Building, with odds 8-1.
There are some great actresses nominated for their lead roles as well. Quinta Brunson has been nominated for her performance in Abbott Elementary. Jean Smart has been nominated for her performance in Hacks. Rachel Brosnahan has been nominated for her performance in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Jean Smart is expected to win with odds 1-4, but Quinta Brunson and Rachel Brosnahan don’t sit too far behind her. Quinta Brunson is next on the list with odds of 13-4, and Rachel Brosnahan’s odds are 13-2.
It seems like the TV series brought to the screen in 2022 were the best we’ve had in years. There have been great comedy, drama, and limited series, and no genre can be compared to the others.
For the category of Outstanding Comedy Series, Ted Lasso, Barry, Hacks, Abbott Elementary, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Only Murders in the Building, and What We Do in the Shadows have all been nominated. Ted Lasso is expected to win with odds 2-3.
For the category of Outstanding Drama Series, Succession, Squid Game, Better Call Saul, Ozark, Severance, Stranger Things, Euphoria, and Yellowjackets have all been nominated. Succession is expected to win with odds 1-2.
There is no show out there like Succession, so I would put all of my money on that. For “Outstanding Actress in a Limited Series”, I expect Quinta Brunson to take the award home, but I do have a personal bias towards Rachel Brosnahan due to my love for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
