2020 Succession Emmys predictions: why should it win?
Although Succession has such rivals as Watchmen, Ozark, The Mandalorian, and Killing Eve, it is the most likely to win the main prize. With 1.20 odds at Betsafe Sportsbook is a proof, betting on the series to win at least Best Drama and Best Actor is a win-win decision.
Betting on Succession to win in the Drama Nomination makes sense for two reasons. Firstly, the series stands out from other nominees in this category. It is not a difficult-to-watch drama, it is a sharp satire on modern society. Yet the plot focuses mostly on one family of gold diggers, characters are recognizable and actors’ performances – simply outstanding. Brian Cox is worth separate mentioning as he is the only favorite to take the Best Actor awards with 1.85 odds at online sportsbooks in Canada. Previously, the actor was awarded for his performance at the 2020 Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards.
In addition, Succession season 2 has already won such prizes as CCA and the Golden Globes in the Best TV Series – Drama. It significantly multiplies the chances of the show to win Emmys as well as the winners in these awards usually coincide.
The 2020 Emmys will take place on September 20, while winners in Art & Design nominations will be announced on 14-17.
