Emmy Predictions, Matthew McConaughey, Julianna Margulies, Ty Burrell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus


We have been to the future and are spilling all of the secrets!

OK, not really, but we decided to break out our crystal ball and best Miss Cleo impression to predict all the nominees in the major drama and comedy categories for the 2014 Emmy Awards, which will be announced bright and early on Thursday, July 10.

While a lot of the usual suspects are including (see: Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and Modern Family), we're also expecting to see some newcomers land quite a few noms, including True Detective, Masters of Sex and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Plus, we've included a dark horse in each category who could prove to shake things up. (Our fingers and toes crossed for The Mindy Project!)

Now remember, these aren't our dream predictions, but which shows and stars we think will actually be on the ballot tomorrow morning...
