Emmy Race Heats Up: Nicole Kidman For The Win?

Could just three smash hit TV shows make a clean-sweep at the Emmy Awards?
And the Emmy goes to... 

Aussie Nicole Kidman is the bookies favourite in Hollywood and if the early tech awards are a sign, The Handmaid’s Tale, Westworld and Stranger Things could be for a clean sweep…

Gilmore Girl’s
star Alexis Bledel has picked up Best Guest Actress in a Drama Creative Arts Emmy for her unforgettable guest role as Ofglen in The Handmaid’s Tale, sparking talk of a clean sweep in the main awards ceremony for the critically acclaimed adaptation of the Margaret Atwood dystopian novel. Lead Elisabeth Moss is surely brushing up her Best Actress in a Drama Series speech right now…the coveted award is considered hers to lose. 

Meanwhile, HBO’s futuristic drama Westworld and supernatural smash from Netflix, Stranger Things also picked up a swag of technical awards (five each), with insiders predicting they could also be frontrunners to win big at the weekend’s hotly anticipated Primetime Emmys, where both shows are nominated in the prestigious Best Drama category. Royal period drama The Crown, could be a dark horse, winning early awards for costume and production design. 

You can’t rule out the down under crew with Nicole Kidman the current frontrunner to scoop up the best Movie/Mini Series Actress Emmy for her role as a retired lawyer, mother and abused wife in HBO’s binge-worthy Big Little Lies. According to expert predictors at Gold Derby, Nic has odds of 4/9, which translates to a 70% chance of winning. Might be a big night for her! Fellow Aussies Judy Davis (Feud: Bette and Joan) and Geoffrey Rush (Genius) are also in the mix for acting awards.
