Besides polling , we also asked Gold Derby’s group of editors to lend their opinions for this year’s awards show. Curiously, while the experts were in agreement that Julianna Margulies (“The Good Wife”) would prevail for Best Drama Actress, our editors were in a four-way split between Margulies, Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men”), Kathy Bates (“Harry’s Law”) and Mireille Enos (“The Killing”).
When it comes to Best Reality Series, the editors couldn’t disagree more. Each of the nominated shows received at least one editor’s vote, except for poor “Antiqures Roadshow” which didn’t receive any love.
Gold Derby’s editors are Chris Beachum, Matthew Cormier, Marcus Dixon, Darrin Dortch, Rob Licuria, Daniel Montgomery, Matt Noble, Tom O’Neil, Andrew Pickett, David Schnelwar and Paul Sheehan.
Below are their predictions. See charts of their rankings here. Compare them with rankings by our experts. And check out charts contrasting both sets of predictions with those made by Gold Derby site users.
