Emmy Predictions 2021 - Which Programs Will Likely Be Nominated for Drama Series?

From June 17-28, 2021, voting took place for The 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards. As such, it's fun to look at which actors and shows have the best chances of actually being nominated this year. So, these are my predictions for which programs will be nominated for Drama Series.

For Drama Series, 133 programs were submitted for consideration. That will result in six nominees in this category when the nominations are announced on Tuesday, July 13.

Programs most likely to be nominated:
  1. Netflix's The Crown
  2. Disney+'s The Mandalorian
  3. Netflix's Bridgerton
  4. HBO's Lovecraft Country
  5. Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale
  6. NBC's This Is Us
Serious threats that could break through:
  1. FX's Pose
  2. HBO's In Treatment
  3. Amazon's The Boys
  4. HBO's Perry Mason
  5. Disney+'s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
  6. AppleTV+'s For All Mankind
  7. Starz's P-Valley
  8. AppleTV+'s The Mosquito Coast
  9. HBO's We Are Who We Are
Some considerable long-shots:
  1. Netflix's Ratched
  2. HBO's Industry
  3. ABC's Big Sky
  4. Starz's Power Book II: Ghost
  5. HBO Max's Raised by Wolves
  6. CBS' The Equalizer
  7. HBO's His Dark Materials
  8. Netflix's Shadow and Bone
  9. Amazon's The Wilds
  10. CBS' Clarice
Colorful oddities that still have an outside chance:
  1. Amazon's The Expanse
  2. Netflix's The Umbrella Academy
  3. FX's Snowfall
  4. DC Universe's Doom Patrol
  5. ABC's A Million Little Things
  6. Amazon's Hanna
