67th Primetime Emmy Awards Nomination Predictions: June 2015   Leave a comment

Hi everyone! In less than a month, John Stamos and Uzo Aduba will be announcing the nominees for this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards. The long list of eligible shows and performances is finally out, so this clears up some placements and submissions from the contenders.
