In the Best Drama category of the Emmys, there are seven nominations in 2018. The award ceremony will be held in Microsoft Theatre on the 17th of September. Understandably, the 2018 Best Drama Emmy predictions highlight the struggle between Game of Thrones and The Handmaid’s Tale to earn this prestigious award.
Clash of the Century
2018 is the first year that Game of Thrones and The Handmaid’s Tale are nominated for Emmy’s Best Drama at the same time. Before 2017, HBO’s Game of Thrones won the award twice from 2015-2016. Meanwhile, online gambling news in US leaked that the series was taking a break from the Emmy Awards 2017.
In comes the introduction of Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale in 2017. Its first season made Hulu the pioneer streaming network to win Emmy’s Best Drama. As luck would have it, The Handmaid’s Tale also has a higher winning chance than Game of Thrones this year, according to the best online betting sites in the United States.
Despite the Best Drama Emmy predictions in 2018, we still believe that Game of Thrones can take back the award. After all, we got to see our favorite characters unite in season 7. Comparing this to The Handmaid’s Tale, its second season has provoked a severe backlash from the fans.
The Worthy Second Season Nominations
We have to mention some worthy second season nominations to make for a complete online gambling in US. These are series that were recognized in their first seasons for the Best Drama category in 2017, but ultimately lost to The Handmaid’s Tale.
The list includes Stranger Things, The Crown, This is Us and Westworld . However, the Best Drama Emmy predictions 2018 reveal that only two of these second season nominations have the potential to win: Westworld and Stranger Things.
Westworld is most notable for its many mysteries enabling the viewers to create conspiracy theories about the park. What’s more? At 21 Emmy nominations, the sci-fi drama has one more than The Handmaid’s Tale. On the other hand, Stranger Things is massively popular. Perhaps, it’s the only series in the list that can compete with Game of Thrones’ popularity. That’s the reason why it’s possible for Emmy’s Best Drama 2018 to be awarded to Stranger Things.
