FAVORITE TV SHOW: â€œThe Big Bang Theoryâ€, â€œGreyâ€™s Anatomyâ€, â€œOutlanderâ€, â€œStranger Thingsâ€, â€œThe Walking Deadâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Since fans have a say in this awards show, we believe that â€œStranger Thingsâ€ will win this one. To the surprise of many, this show quickly became a Netflix smash and is adored by loyal, outspoken fans on social media. It has the best chance at winning because its fresh compared to its veteran category mates.
FAVORITE NETWORK TV COMEDY: â€œThe Big Bang Theoryâ€, â€œBlack-ishâ€, â€œJane the Virginâ€, â€œModern Familyâ€, â€œNew Girlâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: â€œThe Big Bang Theoryâ€ has been a PCA favorite for several years at this point. Although all of the shows are good, this oneâ€™s a no brainer. â€œThe Big Bang Theoryâ€ has a larger following, so this automatically gives it a better advantage.
FAVORITE COMEDIC TV ACTOR: Andy Samberg, Anthony Anderson, Jim Parsons, Matthew Perry, Tim Allen
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Andy Samberg is perfect on â€œBrooklyn Nine-Nineâ€. There is no way he is losing this race!
FAVORITE COMEDIC TV ACTRESS: Anna Faris, Gina Rodriguez, Kaley Cuoco, Â Sofia Vergara, Zooey Deschanel
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Although we love all of these strong female comedy goddesses, we have to side with Zooey Deschanel. Deschanel has proven time and time again how lovable, quirky, and relatable she can be on â€œNew Girlâ€ as Jessica Day. We at Celeb Secrets adore her for it!
FAVORITE NETWORK TV DRAMA: â€œChicago Fireâ€, â€œEmpireâ€, â€œGreyâ€™s Anatomyâ€, â€œHow to Get Away with Murderâ€, â€œQuanticoâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Although â€œGreyâ€™s Anatomyâ€ has a large chance of pulling a win because of itâ€™s extensive cult following, we believe â€œHow to Get Away with Murderâ€ may sneak up and claim this win. Since Viola Davis is the star of HTGAWM, that should automatically guarantee the show a win, right?
FAVORITE DRAMATIC TV ACTOR: Jesse Williams, Justin Chambers, Scott Foley, Taylor Kinney, Terrence Howard
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Honestly, this could potentially go either way. However, weâ€™re going to give it to Jesse Williams because fans of â€œGreyâ€™s Anatomyâ€ will make this win all the more possible.
FAVORITE DRAMATIC TV ACTRESS: Ellen Pompeo, Kerry Washington, Priyanka Chopra, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Honestly, this category has us at Celeb Secrets in a pickle because itâ€™s such a tough race. Although we believe it will be a battle to the death between Ellen Pompeo and Viola Davis, Davis will mostly likely win the fight.
FAVORITE CABLE TV COMEDY: â€œAtlantaâ€, â€œBaby Daddyâ€, â€œItâ€™s Always Sunny in Philadelphiaâ€, â€œReal Husbands of Hollywoodâ€, â€œYoungerâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Celeb Secrets is going to put our heart out on the line and root for â€œAtlantaâ€! Since the unique new comedy show has proven to be a hit with audiences and critics alike, we believe it has a strong shot at winning within this category.
FAVORITE CABLE TV DRAMA: â€œThe Americansâ€, Â â€œBates Motelâ€, â€œMr. Robotâ€, â€œPretty Little Liarsâ€, â€œQueen Sugarâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Although we would love to see â€œBates Motelâ€ score in this category, we feel the award will probably go to â€œPretty Little Liarsâ€. Itâ€™s only fair that PLL wins anyways considering the show is coming to an end.
FAVORITE CABLE TV ACTOR: Adam Devine, Freddie Highmore, Kevin Hart, Rami Malek, Zach Galifianakis
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Honestly, we at Celeb Secrets have no clue who will win this one! But, we would love to see Adam Devine win becauseâ€Workaholicsâ€ just entered their seventh and final. Weâ€™re rooting for you, Adam!
FAVORITE CABLE TV ACTRESS: Ashley Benson, Hilary Duff, Keri Russell, Lucy Hale, Vera Farmiga
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: For obvious reasons, Ashley Benson has got this one in the bag! Benson may be running against cast mate, Lucy Hale, in this category. However, to bring logic into the equation, Hanna is a fan favorite character and Benson is more relevant outside of PLL. Therefore, she has a bit of an advantage of Hale.
FAVORITE TV CRIME DRAMA: â€œThe Blacklistâ€, â€œCriminal Mindsâ€, â€œLaw & Order: SVUâ€, â€œLuciferâ€, â€œNCISâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Although this is another sticky category, â€œLaw & Order: SVUâ€ will most likely come out on top because it is the longest running show competing in this category. Itâ€™s lasted this long for a reason!
FAVORITE TV CRIME DRAMA ACTOR: Chris Oâ€™Donnell, Donnie Wahlberg, LL Cool J, Mark Harmon, Â Tom Selleck
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: This category could potentially go either way. But, in the spirit of predicting a winner, LL Cool J is our top pick because NCIS is more awesome because of him.
FAVORITE TV CRIME DRAMA ACTRESS: Jennifer Lopez, Lucy Liu, Mariska Hargitay, Pauley Perrette, Sophia Bush
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: We at Celeb Secrets love Sophia Bush, but we feel that Jennifer Lopez has a better chance at nabbing the win on this one.
FAVORITE PREMIUM DRAMA SERIES: â€œHomelandâ€, â€œHouse of Cardsâ€, â€œNarcosâ€, â€œOrange is the New Blackâ€, â€œPowerâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: â€œOrange is the New Blackâ€ is the MVP in this category because the showâ€™s latest season was easily its best, most controversial yet. If it doesnâ€™t pull a win, then we have lost all faith in humanity!
FAVORITE PREMIUM COMEDY SERIES: â€œFuller Houseâ€, â€œThe Mindy Projectâ€, â€œShamelessâ€, â€œUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidtâ€, â€œVeepâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: We at Celeb Secrets love â€œUnbreakable Kimmy Schmidtâ€ because Kimmy is the most adorable human. Plus, her fiercely fabulous sidekick/roomie Titus provides us with endless quotes to use within our daily lives. Therefore, we are rooting for â€œKimmy Schmidtâ€
FAVORITE PREMIUM SERIES ACTOR: Aziz Ansari, Dwayne Johnson, Joshua Jackson, Kevin Spacey, Nick Jonas
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Nick Jonas has a strong chance in this category because who doesnâ€™t love this guy? What canâ€™t he do?
FAVORITE PREMIUM SERIES ACTRESS: Claire Danes, Jane Fonda, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Sarah Jessica Parker, Taylor Schilling
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: This year, Taylor Schilling has the best chance at winning within this category because of her epic fourth season on â€œOrange is the new Blackâ€. Schilling gave a stellar performance within the role and deserves all the recognition that comes her way.
FAVORITE NETWORK SCI-FI/FANTASY TV SHOW: â€œArrowâ€, â€œThe Flashâ€, â€œOnce Upon a Timeâ€, â€œSupernaturalâ€, â€œThe Vampire Diariesâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Again, we find ourselves in a pickle with another tricky category. However, we believe that â€œArrowâ€ will be the reigning champ this go round and beating its CW counterparts.
FAVORITE CABLE SCI-FI/FANTASY TV SHOW: Â â€œAmerican Horror Storyâ€, â€œOrphan Blackâ€, â€œShadowhuntersâ€, â€œTeen Wolfâ€, â€œThe Walking Deadâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: â€œAmerican Horror Storyâ€ will win this category to the point where thereâ€™s no real reason for the other nominees to show up and face embarrassment from losing.
FAVORITE PREMIUM SCI-FI/FANTASY SERIES: â€œGame of Thronesâ€, â€œMarvelâ€™s Luke Cageâ€, â€œOutlanderâ€, â€œStranger Thingsâ€, â€œWestworldâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Although we believe this will be a toss up between â€œGame of Thronesâ€ and â€œStranger Thingsâ€, the Netflix show could potentially have a surprise win.
FAVORITE SCI-FI/FANTASY TV ACTOR: Andrew Lincoln, Ian Somerhalder, Jensen Ackles, Sam Heughan, Tyler Posey
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Ian Somerhalder, Jensen Ackles, or Tyler Poseyâ€“itâ€™s a tough call. But, our money is on Somerhalder only because he is slightly more well-known and â€œThe Vampire Diariesâ€ has been a fan favorite for years.
FAVORITE SCI-FI/FANTASY TV ACTRESS: Caitriona Balfe, Emilia Clarke, Jennifer Morrison, Lauren Cohan, Millie Bobby Brown
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: If Millie Bobby Brown wasnâ€™t included as a nominee in this category, we would have automatically said that Emilia Clarke is claiming the throne. But, Brownâ€™s performance on â€œStranger Thingsâ€ is so perfect to the point where she deserves the win more than anyone else nominated alongside her.
FAVORITE COMPETITION TV SHOW: â€œAmericaâ€™s Got Talentâ€, â€œAmerican Ninja Warriorâ€, â€œDancing with the Starsâ€, â€œMasterchefâ€, â€œThe Voiceâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: â€œAmerica Ninja Warriorâ€ is truly making a dent with viewers during itâ€™s normal air time and through reruns. Plus, itâ€™s very different from most notable competition showâ€™s to date. Therefore, we think the fun and fresh show will win this round.
FAVORITE DAYTIME TV HOST: Dr. Phil, Ellen DeGeneres, Kelly Ripa, Rachael Ray, Steve Harvey
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: â€œThe Ellen DeGeneres Showâ€ Â is currently the most viewed daytime talk show. Plus, DeGeneres possesses a great deal of star power. Therefore, this award will unsurprisinglyâ€“but fairlyâ€“swim her way
FAVORITE DAYTIME TV HOSTING TEAM: â€œThe Chewâ€, â€œGood Morning Americaâ€, â€œThe Talkâ€, â€œTodayâ€, â€œThe Viewâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: For obvious reasons, we chose â€œGood Morning Americaâ€ as our winner because itâ€™s proven to be the strongest show amongst the pack.
FAVORITE LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW HOST: Conan Oâ€™Brien, James Corden, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Jimmy Fallon is the most viewed talk show host on late night television for a reason. Heâ€™s funny, charming, likable, and he has great skits on his shows. Therefore, this will be an unsurprising, but deserved win for Fallon.
FAVORITE ANIMATED TV SHOW: â€œAmerican Dad!â€, â€œBobâ€™s Burgersâ€, â€œFamily Guyâ€, â€œThe Simpsonsâ€, â€œSouth Parkâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Celeb Secrets has decided to boldly declare â€œBobâ€™s Burgersâ€ as the winner because itâ€™s quirky sense of humor has managed to win us over from day one.
FAVORITE ACTOR IN A NEW TV SERIES: Damon Wayans, Kevin James, Kiefer Sutherland, Matt LeBlanc, Milo Ventimiglia
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Since â€œThis Is Usâ€ has proven to be a surprise smash-hit this television season, we believe that Milo Ventimiglia will take the win.
FAVORITE ACTRESS IN A NEW TV SERIES: Jordana Brewster, Kristen Bell, Mandy Moore, Minnie Driver, Piper Perabo
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Again, this is another extremely sticky category. Although we love Kristen Bell, Mandy Moore will get a lot of support in this category from loyal fans of Â â€œThis Is Usâ€.
FAVORITE NEW TV COMEDY: â€œAmerican Housewifeâ€, â€œThe Good Placeâ€, â€œThe Great Indoorsâ€, â€œKevin Can Waitâ€, â€œMan with a Planâ€, â€œSon of Zornâ€, â€œSpeechlessâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Since we adore Kristen Bell and her new show so much, weâ€™re putting our money where our mouth is and selecting â€œThe Good Placeâ€ as our top choice to win. Her comedic timing alongside her chemistry with costar Ted Danson merit her winning this award.
FAVORITE NEW TV DRAMA: â€œBullâ€, â€œConvictionâ€, â€œDesignated Survivorâ€, â€œThe Exorcistâ€, â€œFrequencyâ€, â€œLethal Weaponâ€, â€œMacGyverâ€, â€œNo Tomorrowâ€, â€œNotoriousâ€, â€œPitchâ€, â€œPure Geniusâ€, â€œThis Is Usâ€, â€œTimelessâ€
WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Although we love â€œPitchâ€ because of itâ€™s fresh take on a show within the sports genre, we believe â€œThis Is Usâ€ will hit a home run. The NBC drama has resonated well with fans and critics alike as theyâ€™ve fallen in love with it more and more as the show goes on, and we canâ€™t blame anyone for loyally supporting this show.
