2017 Best Writing For A Drama Series Emmy Predictions

In theory, Emmy voters should reward Bruce Miller’s unique adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s classic Sci-Fi novel. That being said, “Stranger Things” is hugely popular with the Television Academy (note those 19 nominations) and that might push it to the top. “The Crown” is also the sort of prestige series that could take this honor especially with Peter Morgan‘s three earlier Emmy nominations and two Oscar screenwriting nods.
