The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards, virtually hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will honor a combination of good and bad things that were on television from the past year. Here are The Onion’s predictions for this year’s winners.
Netflix has never won an Outstanding Drama Emmy, and we have a soft spot for an underdog.
This one was good because new stuff kept happening, which is an especially outstanding thing for a TV show to do.
Streep’s ability to seamlessly transition from being nominated for Oscars to being nominated for Emmys deserves the prize.
He went to the trouble of growing a beard for The Morning Show, so that’s got to be worth something.

It would mean so much to her mom.
Yeah, no shit they’re giving the title design award to the show about design. Seriously, how is this even fair?
Danson’s 17 career Emmy nominations have critics and fans alike agreeing he’s coming off as pretty desperate at this point.
Currently in its 19th season, the singing competition series continues to dominate Blake Shelton’s IMDb page.
Honestly, it’s really unfair to pit mere TV actors against a bona fide movie star.
