Ahead of the announcements, here are our predictions for Emmy Nominations 2015. Vote for your favourite nominees:

Matthew Rhys in "The Americans"

Although "Man Men" has earned worldwide popularity, Hamm is yet to receive an Emmy and now, especially because this will be his last chance to get the honour as Don Draper, he deserves a win in the 2015 Emmys.

Outstanding Actress (Drama)
Taraji P Henson in "Empire"
Viola Davis in "How to Get Away With Murder"
Elizabeth Mozz in "Mad Men"
Lizzy Caplan in "Masters of Sex"
Caitriona Balfe in "Outlander"
Please Specify:

Poll Maker


Taraji P Henson and Viola Davis, whose groundbreaking performances have widespread appeal, are no-brainers in this category. However, much like Jon Hamm, an Emmy honour is long overdue for Elizabeth Mozz for her role as Peggy Olsen on "Mad Men".

Outstanding Actor (Comedy)
Will Forte in "Last Man on Earth"
Andy Samberg in "Brooklyn NIne-Nine"
Ty Burrell in "Modern Family"
Aziz Ansari in "Parks and Recreation"
Andre Braugher in "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"
Please Specify:

Although there are a few more actors who deserve to be nominated in the category, like Louis CK, Matt LeBlanc, William H Macy and Chris Pratt, this year "Last Man on Earth", has really blown out minds, and we feel the award should go SNL alum Will Forte.

Outstanding Actress (Comedy)
Amy Poehler in "Parks and Recreation"
Ellie Kemper in "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"
Emmy Rossum in "Shameless"
Julia Louis-Dreyfus in "Veep"
Sofia Vergara in "Modern Family"
Please Specify:

This year, Amy Peohler who served her last term as proud Pawnian Leslie Knope should take home the Emmy, although many more talented actresses like Mindy Kaling and Lena Dunham deserve to be nominated in recognition of their excellent work.
