Feinberg Forecast: Where Things Stand Midway Through Nom Voting

7:06 PM 6/18/2018

by Scott Feinberg

THR's awards columnist updates his charts, now including the four guest acting categories.

Behind the Screen - Jesus Christ Superstar (NBC) - H 2018
NBC

 

 

The charts below reflect how THR's awards columnist Scott Feinberg believes the Emmy standings would look if voting for the 2018 race ended today. (Work released between June 1, 2017 and May 31, 2018 is eligible.) These projections are formulated using a combination of personal impressions (from sampling many programs), historical considerations (how shows with similar pedigrees have resonated), precursor awards (some groups have historically correlated with the TV Academy more than others) and consultations with industry insiders (including voters, content creators, awards strategists and fellow members of the press).
