The Emmys are this Sunday. That means every comedy, drama, and limited series you’ve loved over the past year or so is probably up for a big ol’ trophy. Some will win, many will lose, all will show up in their finest evening wear.

Well, we here at WIRED Culture may not be in tuxes and gowns, but we do want to celebrate television. That’s why we’re spending this week’s Monitor podcast talking about who we think will win big during this weekend’s ceremony. (If The People v. O.J. Simpson doesn’t win something, we’ll eat our collective hat.) We’re also, of course, talking about who we think should win, but won’t. ::cough::Samantha Bee::cough:: Oh, and we’ve also got some deep thoughts about Master of None to share with you as well.

So put down the remote and join us. We’ve got writers and editors Emma Grey Ellis, K.M. McFarland, and Angela Watercutter on the mic, and we’re ready for fancy clothes, bad jokes, and gold statues.
