Rob's 2019 Emmy Predictions

Tiffen's Emmy awards showcased at CES 2014

With the 2018/2019 television season drawing to a close in the US, the Primetime Emmy Awards aren't far off!

It's been a big year in television. We truly are in the golden age of tv, with shows like Pen15 reaching utter perfection, an excellent sophmore run of Barry, the darkly brilliant Killing Eve, and whatever people are watching on Amazon Prime lately. Ultimately though, only a few shows can rise to the top - only a few can win that big gold statue of a person holding some kind of orb - and I'm pretty happy to call my shots early.


Here are my predictions:

Outstanding Comedy Series
I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson (Netflix)

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series

Ruben Rabasa as Focus Group Man #1 on I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson (Netflix)

Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series

Ruben Rabasa as Focus Group Man #1 on I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson (Netflix)

Best New Talent

Ruben Rabasa as Focus Group Man #1 on I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson (Netflix)

Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series

I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson ("Focus Group") directed by Alice Mathias and Akiva Schaffer (Netflix)

Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series

I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson ("Focus Group") written by Zach Kanin, Tim Robinson, John Solomon (Netflix)

Okay, so it's a bit unlikely that one sketch will sweep the awards but, honestly, just watch it and tell me this isn't the greatest comedic performance of the decade. I dare you.
