Emmy predictions 2018: Complete racetrack odds in all 26 categories to be presented on September 17

Who will be the big winners when Emmys are handed out on Monday night, September 17, during a live ceremony on NBC? Scroll down for our complete predictions in all 26 categories being presented during the telecast. They’re listed in order of their racetrack odds with the predicted winners highlighted in gold. Do you agree with our picks? Make sure to enter or edit your own predictions right here in our predictions center before the awards are handed out.

Our racetrack odds have been calculated by combining the predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users who have been forecasting these awards since the nominations were announced in July. That includes more than two dozen Expert journalists we’ve polled from top media outlets, the Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round for the site, the Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s Emmy winners, the All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ Emmy predictions, and of course the everyday Users who make up our largest predictions bloc by far. Usually one (or more) of those Users puts the rest of our forecasts to shame, so don’t underestimate their collective wisdom.

There are well over 100 Emmy categories awarded every year. The vast majority of those were already presented during two Creative Arts Emmy ceremonies that were held on the weekend on September 8-9. “Game of Thrones” and “Saturday Night Live” were tied as the top winners there with seven victories apiece, followed by “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” which was awarded six times. But all of the categories for “Parts Unknown” were presented during Creative Arts, so it won’t win any additional awards during Monday night’s telecast.

However, “Game of Thrones” and “SNL” could both add to their tallies. If they win all their respective categories during the telecast “Thrones” would top out at 12 wins, while “SNL” would peak at 10, a record haul for the sketch comedy series. But both shows face stiff competition, so maximizing their awards hauls might not be so easy. Find out below who’s tipped to win, and make your own picks here.
