Here are two can’t-miss Emmy predictions. First, “Game of Thrones,” which won 12 Emmys last year and has a total of 38, won’t win any this year.

And, second, Stephen Colbert will be a great host for the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday (6 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2).

“GoT” can’t win because it didn’t air any new episodes this year’s during eligibility period.

As for Colbert, I feel confident about that. But then I’m a big fan.

Here are a few major categories and who will (probably) win:

Comedy Series

Nominees • “Atlanta,” “black-ish,” “Master of None,” “Silicon Valley,” “Transparent,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “Veep”

“Veep” will probably win again, but it would be great if “Atlanta” pulled an upset.

Drama Series

Nominees • “The Americans,” “Better Call Saul,” “The Crown,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Stranger Things,” “This Is Us, “Westworld”

Part of me is rooting for “Westworld.” But “This Is Us” deserves to win.

Limited Series

Nominees •“Big Little Lies,” “Fargo,” “Feud: Bette and Joan,” “Genius,” “The Night Of”

• “Big Little Lies” will win, but “The Night Of” was better.

Variety Talk Series

Nominees • “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver,” “Real Time With Bill Maher,” “The Late Late Show With James Corden,” “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”

• I could make a case for Maher (not a fan),  but it’s been a breakout year for Colbert. 

Variety Sketch Series

Nominees •“Billy on the Street,” “Documentary Now!,” “Drunk History,” “Portlandia,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Tracey Ullman’s Show”

• It’s not even worth discussing, because “SNL” will win.
