In the era of Peak TV, there's never any sense of truly being "caught up" on the massive amounts of TV series out there. That said, there's an obvious batch of televised programming (both on cable and via a multitude of streaming services) that stand heads above the rest. That's why we need an Emmys; proper recognition should be given to those exceling in the craft. Now that you should be mostly caught up on 10 of the best from this year's nominations, it's time to get your predictions for the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards together before the show begins on Sunday, September 22, 2019.

We've assembled our looks at the 15 top categories, honoring brilliant performances and productions of the many actors, actresses, and series that have consumed us for the last year. You'll definitely see shows like HBO's Barry, Game of Thrones, and Veep mixed in with some dope Netflix series (When They See Us) and Amazon Prime (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), with our look at who should win, who will win, and our dark horse picks. Check out our picks, and be ready to either shower us with praise or, at the very least, stay informed before heading into any Emmys watch parties you have going on this Sunday.
