These picks aren’t as single-minded as that — we’ve put within the effort to unfold the wealth a bit of — and in addition let’s be clear: If all of those had been apparent picks, then the Emmys could be boring and there could be no motive to look at. Thus, the one not-so-cynical prediction we’ll make right here, the one that actually wants to return true, is that this ceremony throws us no less than just a few thrilling curveballs.

(Hopefully, within the course of Higher Name Saul.)
