Emmy Winner Predictions 2013: Best Technical Direction

The Emmys are less than one month away…so it’s best to start predicting. I’m going to take a look at each category and predict who I think will be taking home the lovely Emmy statue on Sept. 15 (Creative Arts) or Sept. 22 (Primetime telecast).

Best Technical Direction – Series:
The Big Bang Theory – “The Higgs Boson Observation”
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart – “#18020”
Dancing with the Stars – “Episode 1610A”
Jimmy Kimmel Live – “12-1776”
Saturday Night Live – “Martin Short”
The Voice – “Live Final Performances (Season 3)”

*There’s no clear consensus for who wins this category. Unlike most categories where certain programs are favored and usually win, the list of winners has been pretty split. Dancing with the Stars, American Idol and Saturday Night Live have been the winners the past three years. I think it’s very likely that DWTS or SNL could pick up another win in this category. But The Voice has gained a lot of popularity in the past year and I think it looks very likely to win some technical Emmys this year. Which is why I’m predicting it in this category.*

Best Technical Direction – TV Movie, Miniseries or Special:
The Kennedy Center Honors
The Oscars
2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show Starring Beyonce
The 66th Annual Tony Awards

*Awards shows always get nominated here. It wasn’t a surprise to see The Kennedy Center Honors, The Oscars and the Tony Awards make the list for nominations. However they usually never win. The category tends to lean towards concerts and music specials. Two programs from Great Performances have won the past two years and the 25th Anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame won in 2010. So that narrows the candidates down the Induction Ceremony and Beyonce’s halftime show. I would love to predict Beyonce, but I have to go with the obvious choice and predict the Induction Ceremony.*
