Along with the film races, the nine editors of Gold Derby also predicted the 11 TV categories. Among us, Matt Noble tied Gold Derby chief Tom O’Neil with eight correct. He was followed by David Schnelwar with seven, then Chris Beachum and Ben Sculiga with six. Andrew Pickett got five, Marcus Dixon and Rob Licuria came in with four each and I managed to get just two right.
Only Andrew and David foresaw “Boardwalk Empire” taking the TV Drama prize while Darrin was the only one of us to correctly predict Katey Segal‘s victory for TV Drama Actress for “Sons of Anarchy.” All of us predicted Claire Danes to win TV Movie/Mini Actress for “Temple Grandin.” Had Chris agree with the rest of us about Supporting Actress and gone with Jane Lynch (“Glee) over Sofia Vergara (“Modern Family”) he would have tied for the top score.
