2020 Emmy Awards General Info

  • When: Sunday, Sep. 20 at 8:00 pm ET
  • Where: Los Angeles, CA
  • TV: ABC

Outstanding Comedy Series

  • Schitt’s Creek -300
  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel +200
  • Curb Your Enthusiasm +1000
  • The Good Place +1400
  • Dead to Me +1600
  • The Kominsky Method +2000
  • Insecure +2800
  • What We Do in the Shadows +4000

It’s difficult to look past the two favorites, Schitt’s Creek and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Like most awards, they tend to go to shows in their final season. Hence, the -300 odds on Schitt’s. The Good Place had its final season in 2020 as well, though. The show that starred Ted Danson and Kristen Bell of Veronica Mars fame was one of the most creative, well, ever. Although Schitt’s Creek figures to win, we’re taking a shot on the show about the craziest and sweetest after-life ever to spring from the mind of a human being.  

2020 Emmy Pick: The Good Place 

Outstanding Drama Series

  • Succession -450
  • Ozark +350
  • The Crown +600
  • Better Caul Saul +1000
  • The Handmaid’s Tale +2000
  • Stranger Things +2800
  • Killing Eve +3500
  • The Mandalorian +5000

Succession and Ozark are two of the best dramas on television. But the best drama on television in 2020 was Better Call Saul. The preamble to Breaking Bad gave us an inside look into how one of the most unique characters in history, James Morgan McGill, aka The Lawyer, aka Kevin Costner, aka Slippin’ Jimmy, aka Saul Goodman proved that it takes skill and a lot of lying to yourself to become a badass lawyer instead of just a bad lawyer. 

2020 Emmy Pick: Better Caul Saul 

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series

  • Eugene Levy -225
  • Ted Danson +1000
  • Don Cheadle +1600
  • Anthony Anderson +150 
  • Ramy Yousef +125
  • Michael Douglas +2000

Let’s be honest, Eugene Levy deserves to win for anything he’s ever nominated for. He’ll win on Sunday, no doubt. We’re taking a shot on Anthony Anderson, though. Anderson has garnered a nomination every year since 2015 for his portrayal of Andre “Dre” Johnson in black-ish. It’s time to give him the award.

2020 Emmy Pick: Anthony Anderson 

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series

  • Brian Cox -125
  • Jason Bateman +600
  • Jeremy Strong +115
  • Billy Porter +1400 
  • Sterling K. Brown +1600
  • Steve Carrell +2500

The early money was on Brian Cox in Succession and Jason Bateman in Ozark. All the late money has gone to Jeremy Strong, the other actor nominated for Succession. Cox could win, but Strong is in a great position. He got a Television Critics Award nomination. Cox didn’t. Back Strong.

2020 Emmy Pick: Jeremy Strong

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series

  • Catherine O’Hara -750
  • Rachel Brosnahan +350
  • Christine Applegate +650
  • Issa Rae +1000
  • Linda Cardellini +1800
  • Tracee Ellis Ross +3500

This is Moira Rose’s to lose. The chalk, Catherine O’Hara, is brilliant in everything just like co-star Eugene Levy. 2020 was the final time we got to see O’Hara in new Schitt’s Creek episodes. On Sunday night, make sure to heat up the enchiLaaDaas and watch Catherine take home the award. 

2020 Emmy Pick: Catherine O’Hara 

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series

  • Laura Linney -250
  • Olivia Coleman +400
  • Jennifer Aniston +225
  • Jodie Comer +2000
  • Sandra Oh +2000
  • Zendaya +1000

Laura Linney is a lock. She’s been great in Ozark since the show started. Season 3 saw Linney’s character, Wendy Byrde, get close to the head of the cartel, open a casino, and pretty much take charge. She’s no longer just Marty’s wife and has become his co-CEO in the Byrde’s budding criminal organization. 

2020 Emmy Pick: Laura Linney
