Peter Travers predicts who will win at the 2018 Emmy Awards

Peter Travers is best known for his film reviews and interviews with movie stars.

"I talk about movies all the time and we're excited about the fall and what happens with them," he explained on a special edition of his ABC show "Popcorn." "But what are we all now? We're slaves to TV."

He continued, "And so, suddenly, the Emmys are crucial to our lifetime."

The 70th annual Emmy Awards will be hosted this year by Colin Jost and Michael Che and broadcast Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. For Travers' predictions on who will win in the major categories, keep reading.

The nominees are "The Americans," "Game of Thrones," "The Crown," "The Handmaid's Tale," "Stranger Things," "This Is Us" and "Westworld."

Last year's winner, "The Handmaid's Tale," is up again this year, but Travers said the second season "isn't quite on par with the first one, but it's still amazing."

"It did its last season," he said. "It's been nominated to death and it's never won. C'mon, people, did you watch the last season? So, I'm rooting for that one."

The nominees are "Black-ish," "Atlanta," "Barry," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "GLOW," "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "Silicon Valley" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

Once again, last year's winner, "Atlanta," is in the running.

"I have nothing bad to say about this," Travers said. "This is for Donald Glover as the star, as a writer and director. Everything is triumphant. The second season was at least as good as the first one that he won for."

But Travers also believes in spreading the love around and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" has stolen his heart.

"Something about this, set in 1958 in New York with a woman finding her voice through comedy, just hit me in the right kind of way," he said. "So all due respect to Donald Glover in 'Atlanta,' I'm out there rooting for 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.'"

The nominees are "Godless," "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," "Genius: Picasso," "The Alienist" and "Patrick Melrose."

Jeff Daniels is "at his very best" and Michelle Dockery and Merritt Wever more than hold their own in the Netflix series "Godless." But Travers gives his vote to "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story."

"Because this story of the murder of Versace is done so powerfully as a miniseries, we begin to understand [murderer] Andrew Cunanan," Travers said. "The way that Darren Criss plays him, we don't sympathize with this killer but we see how society helped create him. I'm all about that one."

The nominees are Claire Foy, "The Crown," Elisabeth Moss, "The Handmaid's Tale," Keri Russell, "The Americans," Evan Rachel Wood, "Westworld," Sandra Oh, "Killing Eve," and Tatiana Maslany, "Orphan Black."

Last year's winner, Elisabeth Moss, could easily win again.

But at the risk of "sounding like a broken record," Travers is hoping Keri Russell will be in the mix for her final season of "The Americans."

His top pick, though, is Sandra Oh for BBC America's "Killing Eve."

"It doesn't have that wide audience, and she's basically a desk-bound spy who sort of rubbed shoulders with this assassin she's trying to catch, and it becomes between these two women something that I have never seen in TV before," he said. "So, you people have your work cut out for you."

The nominees are Sterling K. Brown, "This Is Us," Jason Bateman, "Ozark," Jeffrey Wright, "Westworld," Ed Harris, "Westworld," Matthew Rhys, "The Americans" and Milo Ventimiglia, "This Is Us."

Last year, Sterling K. Brown made history when he became the first black actor to snag an Emmy in this category. Travers said it's likely he will win again, but he's rooting for Matthew Rhys in "The Americans."

"Did you see his scene in the garage where he's basically being faced by his friend Noah Emmerich, who he's betrayed?" he said. "Amazing!"

The nominees are Tracee Ellis Ross, "Black-ish," Allison Janney, "Mom," Issa Rae, "Insecure," Lily Tomlin, "Grace and Frankie" and Rachel Brosnahan, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."

Without Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has won this category more than a half dozen times, in the running, the race is wide open.

"But, for me, this award needs to go to Rachel Brosnahan for 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,'" Travers said. "This is a comedy that is an hour long, which kind of breaks that half-hour rule. And Rachel Brosnahan sustains this show. She makes everything about this character nuanced and fascinating."

The nominees are Anthony Anderson, "Black-ish," Ted Danson, "The Good Place," Larry David, "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Donald Glover, "Atlanta," Bill Hader, "Barry" and William H. Macy, "Shameless."

Travers said the award will most likely go to Glover for "Atlanta," but he has to put in a word for Bill Hader.

"Hader is a comedian who is really expert, but, here, playing a hitman who's going to acting class, he's doing something I've never seen him do before," Travers said. "He's found depths in this character that are terrific, and I think he should give Donald Glover a real run for his Emmy money."

The nominees are Jessica Biel, "The Sinner," Laura Dern, "The Tale," Michelle Dockery, "Godless," Edie Falco, "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders," Regina King, "Seven Seconds" and Sarah Paulson, "American Horror Story: Cult."

Travers calls Jessica Biel "terrific" in "The Sinner."

But her competition is Laura Dern in HBO's "The Tale," about a woman having a conversation with her 13-year-old self over sexual abuse.

"It's perfect acting," Travers said. "Laura Dern won last year for supporting in 'Big Little Lies' and is just getting better with each thing she does. So I'm going with Laura Dern for that one."

The nominees are Antonio Banderas, "Genius: Picasso," Darren Criss, "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," Benedict Cumberbatch, "Patrick Melrose," Jeff Daniels, "The Looming Tower," John Legend, "Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert" and Jesse Plemons, "Black Mirror: USS Callister."

In another tough category, Benedict Cumberbatch gives a "bravura kind of tour de force" performance as a heroin addict in "Patrick Melrose." But Travers picks Darren Criss for his performance as Andrew Cunanan in "The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story."

"This is the guy from 'Glee' who we see basically playing characters who are lighter," he said, "and he gives substance to this and humanity to someone who's lost his own humanity. A really great performance."

The nominees are Alexis Bledel, "The Handmaid's Tale," Yvonne Strahovski, "The Handmaid's Tale," Ann Dowd, "The Handmaid's Tale," Millie Bobby Brown, "Stranger Things," Lena Headey, "Game of Thrones," Thandie Newton, "Westworld" and Vanessa Kirby, "The Crown."

Travers would have no objection to last year's winner, Ann Dowd, taking home the trophy, again, for "The Handmaid's Tale." But he's rooting for Vanessa Kirby for her role as Princess Margaret, sister to the Queen, in "The Crown."

"What she does with this is so surprising, making somebody who lived in her sister's shadow come to the fore," he said about Kirby. "I'd like to see somebody new like this who is really so talented."

The nominees are Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, "Game of Thrones," Peter Dinklage, "Game of Thrones," Joseph Fiennes, "The Handmaid's Tale," David Harbour, "Stranger Things," Matt Smith, "The Crown" and Mandy Patinkin, "Homeland."

David Harbour was never better than this past season of "Stranger Things," Travers said. If he had to lose to somebody, he said, it should be Matt Smith for his role as Prince Phillip in "The Crown."

Phillip is "not a likable character in any way," but Smith "gives him so many colors," Travers added.

The nominees are Alex Borstein, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," Aidy Bryant, "Saturday Night Live," Leslie Jones, "Saturday Night Live," Kate McKinnon, "Saturday Night Live," Zazie Beetz, "Atlanta," Betty Gilpin, "GLOW," Laurie Metcalf, "Roseanne" and Megan Mullally, "Will & Grace."

The women of "Saturday Night Live" make up nearly half of the category, and Travers thinks Kate McKinnon is likely to win again.

"She's so great playing whatever celebrity, whether it's Hillary Clinton, whether it's Jeff Sessions, she plays them all brilliantly," he said.

"But I want to say a word about Alex Boorstein in 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,'" he said. "She's the woman who is managing Mrs. Maisel's career. She speaks the blunt truth about everything. She's hilarious doing it and she's also incredibly touching."

The nominees are Louie Anderson, "Baskets," Henry Winkler, "Barry," Alec Baldwin, "Saturday Night Live," Kenan Thompson, "Saturday Night Live," Tituss Burgess, "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," Brian Tyree Henry, "Atlanta," Tony Shalhoub, "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and Matt Walsh, "Veep."

Travers is not sure Alec Baldwin needs another trophy for playing Trump, having already won last year. But he does like Henry Winkler as assassin Barry's drama teacher. Winkler gives the money-grubbing character "heart" and "humor" and "some bitterness as well." The edge, however, goes to Tony Shalhoub as Mrs. Maisel's father, a role he "does miracles with."

    Star Wars 9 leaks: 'Opening scene' REVEALED and it's all about LUKE

    are virtually no Skywalkers left standing for the all-important final chapter. Episode 9 is make or break for the Sequel Trilogy, which has managed to divide the fandom as never before. One of the biggest complaints about The Last Jedi was its divisive portrayal of Luke as a depressed recluse who had run away from his responsibilities and given up hope. And then, shockingly, he died at the end with a many fans frustrated both at his exit and the absence of a defining final act. Has JJ Abrams rectified this in Episode 9?</p><p>Please remember leaks are to be taken with a large pinch of salt. However, they also usually highlight the reports, rumours and expectations currently surrounding the project.</p><p>The latest Episode 9 leaks describe the storyboard artwork following opening scenes: "A sequence in which Kylo Ren is giving a lecture to the&nbsp;Knights of Ren about the threat of Luke Skywalker even after his death. The main weapon of the&nbsp;Resistance is spreading word throughout the galaxy about the brave act Luke made in Crait.</p><p>"Another scene describes&nbsp;Kylo Ren on his throne with the Knights of Ren kneeling before him and showing them a hologram of Luke, reminding them who the enemy really is."</p><p>"The next describes the&nbsp;Resistance inside a large base that is very similar to the Great Temple on Yavin 4. Rey and Leia are spreading the word of Skywalker and his act on Crait throughout the whole galaxy."</p><p>This would please fans as it restores Luke to the forefront of the entire storyline, making him the new hope of the Resistance. It also echoes the theme of The Force Awakens, where the Jedi master was an almost mythical, long-lost figure who symbolised hope.</p><p>It gives his final sacrfice from The Last Jedi huge significance and means that Luke is at the heart of everything that happens in Episode 9.&nbsp;</p><p>Myths and memories are all very good but fans will still want to see their hero on the screen, too.</p><p>Marjk Hamill is believed to have filmed new scenes last autumn at Pinewood, with reports he shares the screen with Rey and Kylo Ren. Whether these are flashbacks or actual present day Force Ghost appearances remains to be seen.</p><p> See today's front and back pages, download the newspaper, order back issues and use the historic Daily Express newspaper archive.</p>

    Joey Fatone says there’s no *NSYNC reunion being planned but ‘never say never’

    ritten, or redistributed. ©2019 FOX News Network, LLC. All rights reserved. All market data delayed 20 minutes. </p><p>Joey Fatone says there's no NSYNC reunion or Las Vegas residency being planned but 'never say never' to the possibility. The former teen idol is currently the host of a new game show called 'Common Knowledge' on the Game Show Network.</p><p>The 41-year-old told Fox News his former bandmates have no plans on touring, but that doesn&#x2019;t mean they wouldn&#x2019;t reconsider the idea in the future.</p><p>&#x201C;I don&#x2019;t know,&#x201D; said Fatone about the idea of a Las Vegas residency. &#x201C;You know, that would take a lot of time, a lot of effort. I&#x2019;m sure it would take a lot of money since Justin [Timberlake] is always on tour. .. But you know what, you never know. I say &apos;never say never.&apos; It&#x2019;s just one of those things where it&#x2019;s sitting down and going, &#x2018;Hey, do you want to do this or not?&#x2019; That&#x2019;s really what it boils down to and everybody obviously, as you get older, everybody has lives.&#x201D;</p><p>&#x201C;You know I have two kids,&#x201D; the singer continued. &#x201C;Justin has a kid. Chris [Kirkpatrick] has a kid. J.C.&#x2019;s [Chasez] been writing and producing. Lance [Bass] wants to have a kid. He&#x2019;s been doing stuff on the radio as well. So everybody&#x2019;s been doing their own thing. It&#x2019;s really hard to kind of focus and get everybody together. But again, never say never.&#x201D;</p><p>&#x201C;We had a great time,&#x201D; recalled Fatone on *NSYNC getting back together for the Walk of Fame ceremony. &#x201C;It was really surreal in a sense of coming out and seeing that many people be there for the star. &#x2026; The ceremony&#x2019;s less than an hour long and so many people came out and it was amazing. &#x2026; It was fun just to hang out with my boys, my brothers.&#x201D;</p><p>Fatone has been keeping busy carving out his own identity in Hollywood. Since *NSYNC, he has pursued acting both in film and on Broadway, as well as competing on &#x201C;Dancing with the Stars.&#x201D; In addition, he has established himself as a television personality, taking on a slew of hosting roles.</p><p>These days Fatone is turning to game shows. He&#x2019;s currently the host of &#x201C;Common Knowledge&#x201D; on the Game Show Network, which focuses on practical, everyday questions everyone should know.</p><p>&#x201C;It feels great,&#x201D; said Fatone on his latest role. &#x201C;It&#x2019;s one of those fun progressions I think for me because I, from being in a boy band, always traveling and running around, this is a little bit more laid back as far as I would say in the sense of the workload, which is fantastic. Now don&#x2019;t get it twisted, when we shoot the shows we&#x2019;re doing six shows a day, shooting 65 episodes in about three weeks. So it&#x2019;s a lot of work in a short amount of time. [But] I get to go home and spend time with my kids.&#x201D;</p><p>Fatone, a proud father to 17-year-old Briahna and 9-year-old Kloey with high school sweetheart Kelly Baldwin, said he&#x2019;s grateful to entertain audiences, all while dedicating quality time with his family.</p><p>&#x201C;That&#x2019;s why it feels good for me right now,&#x201D; said Fatone. &#x201C;As opposed to if I was still in *NSYNC traveling and touring I think it&#x2019;d be a lot harder, a little tougher on me in the sense for my kids. But it&#x2019;s been great. And you know, I love this show &#x2018;Common Knowledge.&#x2019; It talks about everyday questions that everybody should know. It&#x2019;s fun to see the answers from all the other contestants because you never know what&#x2019;s going to come out of their mouths.&#x201D;</p><p>Fatone says&#xA0;he never felt pressured to launch his own solo music career.</p><p>&#x201C;I just was never pressured into it,&#x201D; he explained. &#x201C;&#x2026; I&#x2019;ve always been talking about possibly doing something like that. But &#x2026; other duties and other jobs take me in other directions. &#x2026; I haven&#x2019;t really had that bug to record something as far as a full album. But you never know. I&#x2019;d love to do something like that just for fun.&#x201D;</p><p>It might be tempting&#xA0;to launch a reunion for old time&#x2019;s sake, but Fatone is perfectly content pursuing his passion to entertain on his own terms.</p><p>&#x201C;I think for myself as an entertainer, you just want to entertain,&#x201D; said Fatone. &#x201C;Of course you want to make the money and everything &#x2014; and it&#x2019;s great. But I think the entertainment factor is what it is and I think so far I haven&#x2019;t sucked in anything. People have told me I&#x2019;ve been doing a great job and that&#x2019;s what I do. It&#x2019;s not like, &#x2018;Oh, I&#x2019;m so amazing.&#x2019; &#x2026; No. I&#x2019;m always learning.&#x201D;</p><p>This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. ©2018 FOX News Network, LLC.

    ritten, or redistributed. ©2019 FOX News Network, LLC. All rights reserved. All market data delayed 20 minutes. </p><p>Speaking to Fox News, the &#x201C;Bachelorette&#x201D; alum &#x2014; who shares 2-year-old daughter Molly and son Riley, 7 months, with husband Kevin Manno &#x2014;&#xA0; got candid about what it&apos;s like raising two kids under three.</p><p>&#x201C;You figure when a second kid comes in it&#x2019;s going to be twice as hard, but it&#x2019;s not. It&apos;s like 10 times as hard or at least for me it has been,&#x201D; she told us. &#x201C;Everything changes.&#x201D;</p><p>&#x201C;Everything is harder and there&#x2019;s no real break, but it&#x2019;s awesome,&#x201D; gushed Fedotowsky, adding that now that her baby boy is a tad older things are starting to &#x201C;get a little bit easier.&#x201D;</p><p>&#x201C;He can sit up, so we can go to restaurants and put him in a high-chair, and actually do things,&#x201D; the 34-year-old former reality star shared. Plus, the proud mama says her little man is now on a two naps per day schedule which also helps.</p><p>&#x201C;But at the beginning, I just remember feeling completely and utterly overwhelmed and being like, &#x2018;How are we going to get through this?&#x2019;&#x201D; recalled Fedotowsky. &#x201C;It was such a fog, such a whirlwind.&#x201D;</p><p>&#x201C;It&#x2019;s very hard,&#x201D; Fedotowsky said. &#x201C;I think &#x2014; even career aside &#x2014; just being a parent, I think anybody can relate out there who is in a relationship that when you become a parent your relationship takes a back seat for a little bit. It just has to.&#x201D;</p><p>The TV personality went on to explain that she does believe a healthy relationship with your significant other &#x201C;should always be your priority.&#x201D; But at the same time &#x201C;when your baby is a newborn &#x2013; to survive they have to be your&#xA0;priority,&#x201D; she added with a laugh.</p><p>&#x201C;They won&#x2019;t make it unless they&#x2019;re your priority. So your relationship has to take a backseat in that instance.&#x201D;</p><p>However, now that her babies are a bit older, Fedotowsky says that the couple is at a point where she thinks they have to come first.</p><p>&#x201C;If Kevin and I aren&#x2019;t solid, then our whole family suffers, and I think that that&#x2019;s very important,&#x201D; she shared, admitting that it&#x2019;s still &#x201C;a hard mindset to keep.&#x201D;</p><p>&#x201C;I&#x2019;m always like, &#x2018;I&#x2019;ll do anything for my kids!&#x2019; But I try to remind myself on a daily basis &#x2013; and when I say kids &#x2014; I include [pup] Owen&#x2026; but like my husband comes first and it&apos;s always got to be that way.&quot;</p><p>One part of their relationship that is back on track? According to Fedotowsky, it took 3-and-a-half months after welcoming son Riley in May 2018, but the pair is happily sleeping in the same bed again.</p><p>&#x201C;Yes! We&#x2019;re back in bed!&#x201D; Fedotowsky exclaimed with a laugh.</p><p>&#x201C;I think [it was] the first three months, three-and-a-half months of Riley&#x2019;s life because he was waking up so often and poor Kevin&#x2026; he&#x2019;s a radio host and he does a live show&#x2026; from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. where he has to be on a live radio show talking to millions of people all over Los Angeles like he needs his sleep!&#x201D;</p><p>In order for her husband to get a good night&#x2019;s rest and &#x201C;save [his] sanity,&#x201D; Fedotowsky&#xA0;suggested he sleep&#xA0;in a separate room while she took care of the kids, and once the 35-year-old radio host was home from work, then he would take over so she could grab some shut-eye.</p><p>&#x201C;That&#x2019;s the way we survived in the beginning,&#x201D; Fedotowsky&#xA0;explained, adding that her hubby of nearly two years used to fight her on the idea, but it was all from a place of love.</p><p>&#x201C;I&apos;d be like, &apos;Get in the other room. Go sleep. I&apos;m not going to let you sleep in here with me because I love you,&apos;&quot; she added. &quot;But we&#x2019;re back in the same room. Riley is in his nursery. All is well!&#x201D;</p><p>However, when it comes to &#x201C;couple time&#x201D; the former reality star admits that date nights are something the pair needs to do more of.</p><p>&#x201C;Honestly, I still don&#x2019;t know the answer to that. I don&apos;t make sure of that right now and I need to,&#x201D; Fedotowsky-Manno shared. &#x201C;I definitely put him first, but our kids are always around. We don&#x2019;t do enough date night things.</p><p>&#x201C;We need to start doing that,&#x201D; she continued. &#x201C;We&#x2019;ve had under 10 dates since Molly was born 20-and-a-half years ago.&#x201D;</p><p>Fedotowsky, who believes the two should try and make date night a &#x201C;bi-weekly&#x201D; thing, notes that it is something she needs and welcomes advice on.</p><p>&#x201C;I don&#x2019;t know how to balance that, and keep that going!&#x201D;</p><p>Although the couple is still working on spending quality alone time together, Fedotowsky is a pro when it comes to figuring out family time &#x2014; even making sure to include her &#x201C;first baby&#x201D; &#x2014; dog Owen &#x2014; in the plans.</p><p>&#x201C;Before it was all about your fur baby, and then all of a sudden when&#xA0;little kiddos come around, you have little kiddos to take care of too. So I for one, never want my dog to feel like he&#x2019;s still not my little love because he will forever always be my first baby [and] we try to do things as a family so he still feels like totally involved.&quot;</p><p>One of her daughter&#x2019;s responsibilities is even to feed Owen his favorite bacon and steak-flavored dish for breakfast.</p><p>&#x201C;I feel like doing little things like that where you&apos;re involving&#xA0;your kids and your pets is a good way to get the whole family involved,&#x201D; Fedotowsky shared.</p><p>&#x201C;We do everything. We do family walks with Owen&#x2026; I take naps, and Owen comes right along with me.&#x201D;</p><p>This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed. ©2018 FOX News Network, LLC.

At 42, Cameron makes health and fitness a priority.</p><p>&#x201C;Even on days when I&#x2019;m working very long hours, I can&#x2019;t fit an hour-long workout in, but I can fit in several 10-minute mini workouts. It&#x2019;s not going to give me the same results as putting in the time every day but it still makes a difference. So if I can get in 10 push-ups here and there, do a couple squats while I&#x2019;m waiting in line for something, that&#x2019;s what I do. It will help change your body and it motivates you to make more time to work on your health and fitness.&quot;</p><p>The &quot;Fuller House&quot; actress took her&#xA0;on-screen boyfriend, Steve Hale, played by Scott Weinger to her real-life prom.</p><p>The actress shared on Instagram, &#x201C;#TBT to my real life senior prom with @scottweinger.

She says memorized them when she was in high school.</p><p>Cameron and her husband&#xA0;Val Bure fell in love with Napa Valley so much so that they bought a home there; equipped with their own vineyard.

My stomach muscles are actually where they are suppose to be!&#x201D; she wrote. &#x201C;I got the ok to go back to the gym which I started doing and I know it will just get better with time!&#x201D;</p><p>This isn&#x2019;t the first time Moakler has been candid about her famous figure.</p><p>In December 2018, the pinup shared on Instagram she was pleased with the new series of cosmetic procedures she underwent in October. She showed off her &#x201C;mommy makeover,&#x201D; which she said was to get her abdominal &#x201C;muscles and scar revised&#x201D; with a tummy tuck after having three C-sections.</p><p>Moakler also said she wanted to make her &#x201C;bootie [sic] smaller.&#x201D;</p><p>The former model has two children, Alabama, 13, and Landon, 15, with ex-husband, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, and one daughter, Atiana, 19, from a previous relationship with former boxer Oscar de la Hoya.</p><p>On Nov. 14, Moakler showed off her third week of recovery post-surgery, clad in a tank top and Spanx.
