Some contenders may be jaded. “The Amazing Race” has won in the reality competition category eight times and undoubtedly will have a shot at a ninth victory. “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” has won nine times, and Jeff Probst has dominated the reality host category with four wins for “Survivor.”

Among movies and miniseries, the field likely will include “Game Change,” a dramatized version of the 2008 McCain-Palin campaign, “Hatfields & McCoys” and “Sherlock.”

Also in the hunt is “American Horror Story,” which pulled a reverse “Downton Abbey” move: It competed as a drama series in the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards, then rebranded itself as a miniseries for the Emmys.
