Who Will Take Home an Emmy on Sunday?

Now that the Emmy Awards are only a short few days away, it's time to get serious: Who will win? We've culled predictions from Entertainment WeeklyThe Hollywood Reporter, Indiewire, and Deadline to come up with our top guesses for the show, and if the results hold true on Sunday night, this might be one awards show you don't want to miss.

Outstanding Drama Series: 'Breaking Bad'

This one's not even a competition: Everyone's saying Breaking Bad, and for good reason. The show, whose penultimate episode happens to coincide with the awards on Sunday, had a brilliant last season that deserves recognition. Besides, after being ignored by Emmy in this category for years, it's more than due time for a win. 

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama: Kevin Spacey, 'House of Cards'

Emmy voters could choose to honor Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston for the show's final season, but it's more likely that they'll give the win to Kevin Spacey, whose mesmerizing turn as a U.S. Rep was the best thing about Netflix's House of CardsImage: Netflix

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama: Kerry Washington, 'Scandal'

Kerry Washington's enormous performance as Olivia Pope on Scandal is enough of a reason for the award, but the fact that she'd be the first ever African-American actress to win should help sway any voters on the fence. Image: ABC

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama: Aaron Paul, 'Breaking Bad'

In the most talent-packed Emmys race this year, Paul pulls out ahead, but Homeland's Mandy Patinkin may be a close second. Voters will likely choose to bestow the award on Breaking Bad fan favorite Paul, and while we more than approve of that decision, really any nominee in this category is deserving. Image: AMC

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama: Anna Gunn, 'Breaking Bad'

If you're not a Breaking Bad fan, it looks like you're going to be in for a long Sunday night. Anna Gunn hugely deserves this award for her multi-layered portrayal of Skyler, and her recent editorial probably didn't hurt. Image: AMC

Outstanding Comedy Series: 'Modern Family'

This honor should go to 30 Rock or Louie, but more likely than not, Emmy voters will choose to give Modern Family its fourth win in this category. Despite the show's major decrease in quality since its first season, it's still the safe favorite to take home the award. 

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy: Louis C.K., 'Louie'

A year or two ago, Louis C.K. was too little-known by mainstream Emmy voters to get more than a nomination, but he's quickly picked up a wide audience thanks to the success of his show and roles in critically beloved favorites like Parks and Recreation and this summer's Blue JasmineImage: FX

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, 'Veep'

As much as we'd like to see Amy Poehler get some recognition for her fantastic work on Parks and Rec, it's going to be all about Julia Louis-Dreyfss this year. Veep's second season was its best, and Louis-Dreyfuss proved yet again that she's one of the most talented comedy actresses working today. Image: HBO

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy: Bill Hader, 'Saturday Night Live'

Even up against three Modern Family actors, an Arrested Development alum and Girls' breakout Adam Driver, SNL's Bill Hader could take this category. He had a great final season on the show, and if he won, it'd be SNL's first-ever acting Emmy. Pretty cool. Image: NBC

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy: Sofia Vergara, 'Modern Family'

Vergara's the front-runner for her endearing portrayal of loud-mouthed Gloria on the ABC hit, but she could easily be bested by costar Julie Bowen or 30 Rock's Jane Krakowski. It's going to be a close call. Image: ABC

Outstanding Miniseries/Movie: 'Behind the Candelabra'

Top of the Lake could pull an upset, but all bets are on Behind the Candelabra, HBO's Liberace biopic that drew major critical attention for its two lead performances. Image: HBO

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries/Movie: Michael Douglas, 'Behind the Candelabra'

It's Douglas versus Damon in this category, and either choice would be fine by us. Still, it's more likely that Douglas, who gave a magnetic, hugely entertaining turn as Liberace in the made-for-TV movie, will take home the prize. Image: HBO

Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries/Movie: Jessica Lange, 'American Horror Story: Asylum'

Lange has consistently received critical praise (and Emmy love) for her work on American Horror Story, and this year should be no exception. Look for her to take home yet another award this Sunday. Image: FX

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries/Movie: James Cromwell, 'American Horror Story: Asylum'

This honor could go to Cromwell's Horror Story co-star, Zachary Quinto, but we predict that the man behind Dr. Arthur Arden will get the win. He's received unanimous acclaim for his work on the show since he joined the cast. Image: FX

Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries/Movie: Sarah Paulson, 'American Horror Story: Asylum'

It looks like the FX drama will be sweeping the awards come Sunday. Sarah Paulson, who plays Lana Winters on American Horror Story, has already won a Critics Choice Award this year for her performance. You can bet that an Emmy will followImage: FX

Outstanding Variety Series: 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart'

The Daily Show has won this award 10 years in a row, and don't expect the streak to end anytime soon. Thanks to a stand-out year highlighted by John Oliver's fantastic two-month turn as host, Jon Stewart and Co. can start making room on the mantel for one more honor. Image: Comedy Central

Outstanding Reality Competition: 'The Amazing Race'

Like The Daily ShowCBS's long-running reality competition The Amazing Race has had a near-perfect streak of wins, taking home this award every year except one since 2003. With only middling competition from shows like The Voice and Project Runway, It's safe to bet that Emmy voters haven't changed their minds. Image: CBS
