The A.V. Club is counting down the days leading up to the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 17, with an examination of this year’s major categories. Each day, TV editor Erik Adams is breaking down a category and giving us his picks for who should win, and who will win. Today we’re looking at the nominees for Outstanding Comedy Series:
In a perfect world, Atlanta would be walking home with this award. The A.V. Club’s second favorite show of 2016, Atlanta is exactly the kind of inventive, hilarious series the Emmys should be recognizing. But Emmy voters are creatures a habit. HBO’s Veep is coming off two consecutive wins in this category, and while this season has been a down year, there’s no reason to think it won’t win again. For the rest of Erik’s analysis, check out the video above and stay tuned for more of The A.V. Club’s Emmy Round Up.
