Best Comedy Series: Nominees “The Big Bang Theory,” “Louie,” “Modern Family,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Silicon Valley” and “Veep.”

Should win: “Silicon Valley,” my favorite new HBO comedy. It is much funnier than HBO’s “Veep.” I understand “Louie” is a trendy pick and got a lot of support from my colleagues, but its humor can be too subtle.

Will win: “Modern Family,” which remained consistently funny in a season highlighted by the gay wedding of Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet).
