Series are quickly becoming one of the most watched forms of entertainment and, while they will likely never surpass the popularity of movies, the quality continues to get better, making the Emmys one of the most interesting award shows of the calendar year.

The 2017 Emmys will happen on Sunday night and will be hosted by Stephen Colbert, the host of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. If you have ever watched his show or his previous show The Colbert Report, he is absolutely hilarious. We should expect the leash to be a little bit longer than it is on The Late Show, however, so expect some entertaining moment from the Lord of The Rings expert and political satire genius.

However, which actors, actresses and series will go home on Sunday with an Emmy?

With so many options for people to watch series from streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon to televised options like NBC, HBO and AMC, the competition at the Emmys continue to get more and more competitive each year.

It seems that every year a show comes out of nowhere to steal the show, and we could see that once again in 2017. The categories are absolutely full of fantastic shows, actors and actresses.

In fact, I have seen almost all of the shows nominated for an Emmy in 2017, and I highly suggest that you do so as well. If you happen to see a series you have never watched be nominated or win an Emmy, it is usually a must-watch for the near future.

Who will win? Will it be the favorites? Will it be all upsets? Will This Is Us win every single award?

Here are our final predictions for the 2017 Emmys.

The clear favorite to win the Emmy for Most Outstanding Comedy Series, Veep would be a deserving victor. The show centers around Selina Meyer, the fictional vice president of the United States, and her team’s attempt to try and navigate the cat and mouse games of Washington D.C. and be remembered more for just an everyday scandal or for doing nothing at all.

Meyer is played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Dreyfus’ acting is one of the reasons that Veep is so funny and so successful – in addition to the brilliant writing, of course.

The only true challenger to Veep, at least in my opinion, will be Donald Glover’s Atlanta. Don’t call it a guaranteed upset, but I honestly believe that Veep could end up being knocked off by FX series.

The other nominees for the 2017 Emmy for Most Outstanding Comedy Series are as follows:

Atlanta, a series on FX which follows two cousins and their attempt to break into the Atlanta rap scene.

Black-ish, a sitcom on ABC about the everyday lives of an upper-middle-class African-American family.

Master of None, a Netflix Original series starring Aziz Ansari as Dev Shah and about his life as an actor.

Modern Family, the consistently funny ABC sitcom about the Dunphy family.

Silicon Valley, a series that follows the lives of five people who started a start-up company in Silicon Valley.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a series co-created by Tina Fey about the life of Kimmy Schmidt after she is rescued from a cult.
