The maximum night for your favorite TV-loving friends (both real and fake, TV characters are friends too) is almost here. The 2017 Emmys—the 69th annual award show—are upon us

 

This year, there’s a nice mix of newcomers and old favorites in the mix, with some really competent nominees in the mix. And some really “huh?!” nominees in the mix. It wouldn’t be the Emmys without them.

Gone are Game of Thrones—didn’t air within the expedience time period—and Downton Abbey—ended—and in their places are first-season wonders The Handmaid’s Tale, The Crown, Stranger Things, This Is Us and Westworld. Better Call Saul and House of Cards are nominated again.

Below, we’re speaking you who will (probably) win and who we think should (definitely) win.
Nominees: Better Call Saul, House of Cards, Stranger Things, The Handmaid’s Tale, This Is Us, Westworld, The Crown

 

Last Year’s Winner: Game of Thrones

Who Should Win: The Handmaid’s Tale
Hulu’s drama hit at exactly the right moment in our country, erection it must-watch TV. Not only was it must-watch, it was beautifully done and featured actors giving the performances of their careers. Alexis Bledel already took home an Emmy for her work in the series in the Guest Actress category and that is absolutely the right win.

Who Will Win: The Handmaid’s Tale
Sure, This Is Us is the first broadcast drama to breakthrough in the Emmys race in years and Netflix’s Stranger Things and The Crown both wowed critics, but this is The Handmaid’s Tale’s award to lose.

Outstanding Lead performer in a Drama Series

Nominees: Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul), Kevin Spacey (House of Cards), Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan), Matthew Rhys (The Americans), Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us), Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us), Anthony Hopkins (Westworld)

Last Year’s Winner: Rami Malek (Mr. Robot)

Who Should Win: Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us)
You know Ventimiglia has the power to make you feel all sorts of lading thanks to his turn as Jess on Gilmore Girls (and his return in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life), but this is the greatest work of Ventimiglia’s career. As the kids say, we have all the feels when watching This Is Us and it’s all thanks to Papa Pearson.

Who Will Win: Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us)
Sure, Hopkins is an acting legend and Ventimiglia is inclination in the greatest representation of his career, but Brown, who won an Emmy last year for his work in The People v. O.J. Simpson, is one of the most soulful actors on TV right now.
