-- Emmy Award nominations will be announced tomorrow, and Yahoo! TV critic-at-large Ken Tucker expects to see many new shows popping up among the nominees.
"This Is Us" is one of the new shows he has high hopes for and one of few network contenders.
The other show that is sure to score many nods is Hulu's crown jewel, "The Handmaid's Tale."
"It is by far Hulu's most high-profile production yet," he said. "It will get nominated as best drama ... Elisabeth Moss is a shoo-in for best actress," Tucker told ABC News. "It is one of those phenomenons of the Emmys this year."
On the comedy side, he said, perennial favorite "Veep" could get some competition from a "couple insurgents": "Atlanta" on FX and "Master of None" on Netflix.
Anna Chlumsky and Shemar Moore will announce the nominees for the 69th annual Emmy Awards on Thursday starting at 8:30 a.m. PT/11:30 a.m. ET, and the awards will be broadcast live on Sept. 17.
Here are Tucker's predictions for who will score nominations:
Outstanding drama series
Tucker said that "Stranger Things" is one of the most viewed shows on Netflix in years, and though science fiction doesn't traditionally do well with Emmy voters, "Westworld" has a star-studded cast that voters can't resist.
Outstanding lead actor in a drama series
Outstanding lead actress in a drama series
Tucker added that a nomination or snub for Baranski will be a test of whether CBS made the right decision in making "The Good Fight" an online-only show.
Outstanding comedy series
"Insecure," which had a good first season on HBO, could also score a nod, Tucker said.
Outstanding lead actor in a comedy series
Tucker said that even though Azaria and Danson are in shows that haven't gotten big ratings, they have familiar faces, which Emmy voters like.
Outstanding lead actress in a comedy series
Both of the "Grace and Frankie" stars could score nods, bumping one of the other top contenders, Tucker said.
Outstanding limited series
Tucker said "Feud" is the show to beat this year, with the "combined star power of Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon," but he also expects "Big Little Lies," led by Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, to get a few nominations.
