2011 Emmy Winner Predictions: Final Creative Arts Predix
The annual Creative Arts Emmys (the ceremony in which all of the technical categories and the the guest acting categories of the Primetime Emmys are given out) are being held this Saturday evening (PST). If you would like to follow real time updates, I would suggest constantly reloading the official nominations page on Emmys.tv until the winners are revealed, go to goldderby for a live chat, or follow me here as I try to give instant (or as instant as possible) analysis of the winners. Anyways my final predictions (barring any last minute changes of heart) are here.
Some of the changes I have made are as follows:
I am now predicting Disney's Prep & Landing: Operation Secret Santa for Best Short-Format Animated Program because Robot Chicken doesn't appear to have the buzz it normally does.
I am predicting A Child's Garden in Best Children's Program as it appears HBO is in for a big year for these awards.
I am predicting The Deadliest Catch in Reality Program as I just realized this is one of the episodes dealing with the death of the captain that made a lot of news when it happened.
I am predicting Travis Wall in Best Choreography because he seems to have the most buzzed about work on So You Think You Can Dance (which always wins in this category).
I am predicting Whale Wars in Nonfiction Cinematography because it is a perennial nominee in this category but has never one. Its turn has to come soon.
I am predicting Jimmy Kimmel Live in Best Lighting Direction for a Series because this category is based a lot on how big the director of the program is (even though he/she doesn't receive the award). I would consider Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) a big director. Also, American Idol is really losing buzz in its races after submitting another poor episode for judging.
I am predicting Jeff Probst for Best Reality Host for reasons mentioned above (think Ryan Seacrest) and because this seems to be a category Probst can't lose.
I am predicting Mildred Pierce in Best Makeup for a Movie/Miniseries because its biggest competition (The Pillars of the Earth) seems to only be a big player in the visual and sound effects categories.
I am predicting Game of Thrones in Best Makeup for a Series because this is one of the few clear categories in which the voters can vote for the show over its fellow HBO series, Boardwalk Empire.
I am predicting Henry Connick Jr., A Concert on Broadway in Music Direction because it normally goes to an episode of Great Performances. It's just a matter of predicting which one.
I am predicting Deadliest Catch in Picture Editing for a Reality Program for reasons mentioned above.
I am predicting Lady Gaga's special over Louis C.K.'s special in Picture Editing for a Special because it seems if they are to award C.K. for all of his work this year it will be in one of the main categories.
I am predicting American Idol in Short Form Picture Editing because its too big of a program to lose (even if it was poorly received).
I am predicting Mildred Pierce in Sound Mixing for a Miniseries as its biggest competition in the category (The Kennedys) appears to be heading for an 0-for.
