The voting for Emmy’s start from June 3 and this time things might look different. The prominent Oscar’s winners were much speculated and predictable but rumor has that the Emmy’s award winners list might be completely new.
Somewhere in the vicinity of 400 scripted series and north of 750 unscripted programs technically are in the running. Some trophies offer more cachet than others — with all due respect to the Creative Arts honors, now handed out during two (two!) separate events — and categories for many of the most coveted are primed for a shake-up, thanks either to vacated slots (so long, Mad Men), surging new blood (late-night’s crowded talk landscape) or voters’ ever unpredictable tastes (outstanding drama, perennial wild card).

With the emerging new shows, old ones remain in the tide too. It is said to be a tough combination.
The previous trophy winner series include Homeland, Game of Thrones and Mad Men’s four year winning streak.

Lead actor in drama:
John Hamm is finally the choice for Mad Men.
Lead actress in drama:
This time, with the heat off Viola Davis of “How to get away with murder”, the possibility has returned to Claire Danes (Homeland), Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) and Robin Wright (House of Cards).
