[As the Emmy nominating process draws closer, we’ll be revisiting programs that have completed their seasons to provide a snapshot of their strength and weaknesses as true contenders.] If there is one thing you can say about “Feud: Bette and Joan” it’s that Faye Dunaway’s performance in “Mommie Dearest” is no longer the definitive portrayal of Hollywood screen legend Joan Crawford.

The Television Academy announced this morning that Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” would not qualify as a returning drama series, but instead be qualified as a limited series.  According to  the Television Academy this was petitioned by the show’s producers and was approved by the Academy’s industry panel in consideration for the 69th Emmy Awards. According to the Emmys, “A limited series is defined as a program with two (2) or more episodes with a total running time of at least 150 program minutes that tells a complete, non-recurring story, and does not have an on-going storyline and/or main characters in subsequent seasons.” “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” was released on Nov.

Don’t discount the Television Academy’s adoration of Viola Davis (“How To Get Away With Murder”), Claire Danes (“Homeland”) or returning Emmy favorite Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”). Christine Baranski (“The Good Fight”) and Evan Rachel Wood (“Westworld”) are also potential spoilers here.

It might be a slight reach to have Issa Rae (“Insecure”) as a frontrunner for a nomination, but our gut tells us the Television Academy will pay (or have already paid) attention to HBO’s critical comedy breakout.  Sarah Jessica Parker (“Divorce”) is Emmy royalty so even with Amy Schumer and Laurie Metcalf no longer in the mix it’s gonna be tough for Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”)Phoebe Waller-Bridge, (“Fleabag”), Constance Wu, “Fresh Off The Boat” or Gina Rodriguez, “Jane the Virgin” to crack the field.

Previous nominees Liev Schreiber (“Ray Donovan”) and Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”) can absolutely return to the fold, but we think newcomers Anthony Hopkins (“Westworld”) and Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”) will steal their thunder. [Posted March 17] FrontrunnersSterling K. Brown, “This Is Us” Anthony Hopkins, “Westworld” John Lithgow, “The Crown” Rami Malek, “Mr. Continue reading 2017 Best Lead Actor In A Drama Series Emmy Awards Predictions at The Playlist.

First, RuPaul won the reality host Emmy last year which is a huge win in upward notoriety and trajectory with Emmy voters. Second, the “All Stars 2” season this fall was the most critically acclaimed in the series’  history and delivered the show’s highest ratings yet. Third, the new season (season nine) will air this spring on VH1 a much more visible network to voters than Logo.  Continue reading 2017 Best Reality-Competition Program Emmy Awards Predictions at The Playlist.
